Weekend Coffee Share at www.nerdinthebrain.com – drug withdrawal and YouTube

If we were having coffee, I would be having tea or a soda. I don’t drink coffee. I would explain why I haven’t been around much. Thing is I have been around on www.tessacandoit.com.

I have been in video form. I became obsessed with YouTube and started my own channel. It is linked to my other blog noted above. Every day I have been having a new vlog on YouTube and post the video to the blog itself. If anyone wants to check out my channel and subscribe to it, go to YouTube and in the search box put my name “Teresa Smeigh” and my channel should come up with all the videos I have made. At first I worried about how I sound because I stumble over words, forget what I want to say, etc. However, it is easier than typing and trying to make it look perfect. I am not anywhere near perfect and suffer from loss of cognitive skills which you may not notice in a typed blog. I have trouble remembering how to type. This is the most typing I have done in a while.

I would also tell you that I am in the process of withdrawing from my psyche meds for my bipolar and borderline personality disorder. One down and it was a doozy to wean off of. Now I have started the second one. So far not as hard as the Cymbalta was. If you notice a personality change it is probably the drugs. I have been off the drugs more than I have been on them and I hope it helps some of the problems I have been having.

I noticed the change in venue thanks to Trent’s post.

God bless you all!

    Hi Tessa! I look forward to checking out your channel.. You are brave! My introverted self hates being in front of a camera – I’ll choose to be behind it every time. 🙂 Good luck on the transition and I wish you all the best!
