Issues, issues, issues....

I am still loving the eat-clean lifestyle and I am so happy to have simplified one aspect of my life. I love weightlifting but really need to work on fitting in the cardio. That sounds do-able. So as far as healthy eating and lifestyle go I'm doing OK. The rest of it is pretty much craptastic.
I've been trying to deal with my anxiety and sleep issues. In the process of trying to discontinue my sleeping medication the doctor has put me on Effexor, an anti-depressant. My sleep issues are anxiety based and this is supposedly good for anxiety (I wasn't actually depressed at all).
Unfortunately, the Effexor has made me depressed and super sedated. I sleep for 10-12 hours and still don't want to get out of the bed. Not only am I sleepy I'm also super anxious about my classes and work. I wasn't before...I've skipped out of school for 2 days in a row after completely bombing my last test. Yesterday I actually was driving in and turned my car around and drove back home because I couldn't make myself face that class. I am usually a super student. I love school even when it is hard. I can't wait until this crap medicine is out of my system and I can get back to my less dysfunctional self. Discontinuing 1 sleep medicine is soooo not worth all of this. I've been in contact with my doctor and we will be fixing this but for now I'm not my best me
