Life after Pristiq day 10 and my cat has parasites! Help!
Day 10 update of quitting Pristiq. A ton of improvement in the love department. Also, my cat has parasites but won't eat her food with medicine in it. Not sure what to do next. Advice?

Today is day ten without Pristiq. If you've read my previous blog post then you know that I tapered down to a quarter of a pill everyday before stopping this drug a little over a week ago. The first few days were horrid but I must say, I feel great! The past two days have been exceptional. As I lay in bed last night with my significant other I felt connected again. I felt wonder and awe looking at his face. I felt a need to be close to him and feel his skin. I asked him, "Is this what it has been like the past couple of weeks? I just roll over and we both fall asleep?"
"No," he says, "I think it's been way longer than a couple of weeks. It's been like that since you started taking Pristiq." I couldn't have been more ashamed. I apologized over and over only to have him silence me in the most loving of ways. We both agreed it had been the best night since early 2013. :D
I am feeling a little more human today. I look forward to rolling over and cuddling in the morning and lots of affection before heading off to work. This is a considerable amount of progress.
My skin gets clearer and smoother every day. I smile more, laugh more and can feel myself coming back. Can't wait for the official 14 day mark!
Somewhere in between yesterday and two days before I realized one of my poor cats has some sort of parasitic infestation. Little worms would hang from her bottom or just on her fur there. We went out and purchased vetscription worm remover. We've given the proper dosage to both cats. The one that was found to be infected is very picky about her food and did not eat nearly enough of the food with medicine in it. We are not sure what to do next. If anyone has experience ridding their cats of worms please do leave a comment. Any advice will help!
Until next post, take care,
