My body seems to be adjusting to the Effexor nicely now, and I'm able to get a reasonable amount of sleep.
Sakula opined that my meditation is going so pleasantly because the Effexor is removing the chemical imbalance that had been hobbling me... So when you take the hobbles off... She also shared that she knows monks who are on antidepressants, which really made me feel better. :-)
In my practice, she recommends using the serene, concentrated mind to investigate, and gave me some advice on how to do that. I'm about to start applying that.
