On a positive note-- Jordan said she was feeling more energetic, she liked it, and she was excited. Yay! Although is this even possible after taking Lexapro for only three days, or was it a placebo effect? I had no idea, but I was glad she was positive and receptive to the idea of taking medication. I looked up how long it takes to feel the effects of Lexapro on the National Alliance on Mental Illness site (NAMI) and it said:
"Sleep, energy, or appetite may show some improvement within the first 1-2 weeks. Improvement in these physical symptoms can be an important early signal that the medication is working."
Notice it doesn't say 1-3 days. Regardless, I was thankful things appeared to be moving in the right direction.
On a more positive note-- Adam got a contracting job. I can't tell you how relieved we were, and how proud I was of him. Like super relieved and super proud.
On an even more kick-ass positive note-- We went to freshman orientation and Jordan, our Jordan, didn't get nervous or overwhelmed. What-what? She was looking forward to high school. I don't think Jordan ever looked forward to anything before it happened, especially if it was an unknown.
I must have had hope that our tides were finally turning, because I wrote: I will be so happy if this helps her to lead a normal life-- like beyond-words happy!
