Sorry I’ve been away. I just have no interest in things. And no energy The Welbutrin didn’t help or hurt so the doc put me on Lexapro. Two big side effects : increased anxiety and screwed up sleep. Not fun. I told the doc if this one didn’t work then I want to be off … Continue reading New Meds Again
The Effexor had lots of nasty side effects. I’m now on Welbutrin. We’ll see how that goes. This has been the longest episode of my depression yet. I’m barely functional most days and currently in tears daily though I think that’s from Effexor withdrawl. I feel cut off from my Catholic faith and it doesn’t … Continue reading Depression Reset

Then I … Continue reading When It All Goes Kerbluey

I don’t feel like crap or anything but sleeping and hiding in bed is about the only thing I want to do. So of course today I … Continue reading When Bad Headspace Rears Its Head
I did not want to get out of bed today. I just want to hide. I have to deal with bureaucracy tomorrow and I’m afraid that I’m going to lose my food stamps due to the stupid changes in rules. Actually, I’m totally convinced that I will lose my food stamps and that I will … Continue reading Anxiety and Depression Run Rampant
