I Am Officially No Longer A Lexapro Ho, Whoo Hoo!!!

Hey folks, I got a song for ya to sing: (to the tune of Happy Birthday – the real version, not the Stevie Wonder MLK version. I hate that crap. I mean, I like the real song but I don’t like to hear it sung at a regular birthday party. It just…rankles.) Congratulations to me, […]

Yes I Can Still Count

I CAN count, but sometimes I get lost… I was trying to remember how many days ago I started the Lexapro Withdrawal Plan and I’m pleased to report that it’s been NINETEEN DAYS! With really no side effects to speak of. I am now on 2.5 mg of the stuff and after this we go […]

Day 2

Well, here we are on the morning of Day 2. The good news is that I woke up without a headache, which is a huge surprise because the BAD news is that I slept like total and complete shit. Can you explain to me how it is that I can take TWO ibuprofen PM – […]

Time To Say Goodbye

Sigh. I’ve decided that I am going to try to wean myself off of the Lexapro. I don’t think it’s working anymore, and…I don’t want to continue taking it just because NOT taking it for a while will cause withdrawal symptoms. I’m not sure that this is the BEST time of year for me to […]

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 […]

Wellbutrin, We Hardly Knew Ye

I don’t know, people. I don’t know. It’s only been what, less than a week, since I’ve been on this stuff? No, it has been over a week because I got it last Sunday or Saturday. I am not feeling this at all. From an emotional standpoint, I do feel better. I do. But I […]

Yay! Friends Came By!

I’m here hanging out with two close friends, who are amazingly awesome, if by “amazingly awesome” you understand me to mean I WISH THEY WOULD GO HOME. Their names are Insomnia and Nausea. Perhaps you know them? It’s 4:00 in the morning. For the past 2 1/2 hours I’ve been lying in Punksin’s bed with […]

New Crazy Meds

Did I tell you I have new meds? The Lexapro just didn’t seem to be cutting it anymore. I’m not sure what the hell happened, but…something went awry. Maybe I missed too many doses. I don’t know. All I know is, I wasn’t feeling I-don’t-give-a-shit about stuff that I don’t want to give a shit […]
