I’ve been off of cymbalta now for about 5 weeks. I still get headaches every once and again and the cervical lymphodenopathy has yet to subside fully but I am feeling better than I ever have before without the drug. I see the commercials on TV and I can’t help but feel sorry for all the people who have been prescribed Cymbalta because they will feel better for a while but sooner or later the devil comes out of the details and tries to beat the soul out of you.
I wonder if I would be where I am if I had been able to get off of it sooner. Would I have made the same decisions? Would I still be at the job I had straight out of college? Would things be better? Maybe so.
One thing is for certain and that is I am more thankful for what I have because of the burden I was chosen to bear. As much I have been hurt, saddened, and angered by the last 9 years I have been humbled by it all. I don’t think a person can have too much humility.
Humility is the source of greatness. Try to think of any person you admire or a great historical leader. Were they proud or were they humble? Humility leads to selflessness. Sow humility and it will yield greatness.
