Rough Seas Ahead

Okay, full disclosure here: the post in which I said that it was time to bid Lexapro adieu, I wrote that yesterday, but didn’t publish it until today. Meaning that last night was the first night in which I reduced my dosage of Lexapro. Meaning that today was the first day of dealing with it. […]

Negative Numbers

That would describe my appetite right about now: it’s in negative numbers. Not only do I not want to eat, but I feel like I want to throw up. Except it’s hard to throw up when you haven’t eaten. I managed to cook this morning, though: pancakes (I make mine from SCRATCH, thank you) and […]

Stress and My Love Affair with Klonopin

It’s interesting how differently stress affects people. Most people I know tell me that when they are stressed out, they take refuge in food, and of course they end up gaining weight. I am the absolute complete opposite. When I am stressed, I stop eating altogether. I eat because someone reminds me to, or I […]

Mixing It Up

I’m thinking that taking a Klonopin pill with a nice topped off glass of wine, rather than the advised glass of water, is not such a good idea. And yet, that’s JUST what I just did. JUST…as in a few minutes ago. Today has been a doozy and it’s probably about to get wilder or […]

Breathless

The kids were not supposed to be in camp this week. However, I managed to sign them up at the last minute. The new swim team that I want Punksin to get on has finally announced their try-out schedules (a month from now) and I wanted to make sure she got practice, since she’s really […]

The Disintegration of 15 Days

It wasn’t too long ago that I was writing here about looking forward to my 15 days of bliss, remember? 15 days during which the kids would be at camp, the hubby would be at work, and I would finally, oh finally, have some wee bit of time…to myself. Not insane amounts of time, mind […]

Walk

today… is one of those days… where I feel as though I should just take a walk… into oncoming traffic.

A Plethora of Pet Peeves

I know: you’ve been reading the past few days of posts and seeing pet peeve after pet peeve after pet peeve and now you’re wondering: what crawled up HER ass? Well, I was wondering that myself. I try as much as possible to be self-aware so that I don’t inflict too much of my bitchiness […]

Pet Peeve #683

You know what I find so…annoying? AND amazing? The lies that go on in people’s portrayals of themselves. Of course, this sort of thing is rife in the media, with the airbrushing of models who are already stick-thin, and maybe have some acne that needs to be brushed out so that they can look absolutely […]

Dialing it Down

Well, I’m still on the Wellbutrin, and I don’t feel like quite the crackhead I was feeling before, but still… I want to get off. I don’t think it’s making that much of a difference. I think regaining my own equilibrium is making a difference. And I don’t think that’s happening because of the drugs […]
