She also said that my urticaria may reoccur if I stop taking the sertraline and I haven't killed the stressors in my life. Things have already mellowed out quite a lot, now that I'm not getting vile things sent my way via the internet, I've quit my job, and Jason's settled back into the relationship. I'm feeling much more positive about life in general, no doubt about it. I'm actually singing today! But I think another month of sertraline is the way to go, then a "phased reduction" to see if the urticaria reoccurs. But I'll be seeing a specialist at the end of the month, anyway, so he or she can give me some advice then.
Anyway, my blood pressure came in at 140/89, which is very good for me, and now I'm off to see an art exhibit with Arwen.
