I was told to give an update so here it is.... so it has been my first week on lexapro and I must say it has helped. I am still working on my relationship with my mother but it has helped a lot with the boyfriend. I haven't argued in a week and when I feel like I am getting upset the feeling goes away right then and there. I have another week to see if it really is in my system yet, but I have a friend who is on it too and he told me he can tell it is working really well. I go see my therapist in another week and I am really excited to tell him how things have been.
