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.

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 also freaking out about an interview for a job I have Friday. I’m not thrilled with the possible commute to … Continue reading Withdrawal. Anxiety.
