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 […]

Kicking and Screaming All the Way

I can’t believe summer is almost over. I SWEAR it was like, 2 DAYS ago, that I was standing outside with Punksin and her good friend from swimming, talking about camps and the tree that fell in front of our house and what do you MEAN it’s almost over? I’m not ready for it to […]

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 […]

Ze Return of Claude, that Fucking BASTARD

Yeah, him. That fucker came back with a vengeance. I don’t know exactly what happened. Actually, I think it was more an accumulation of things, some of them events, some of them shit that has been simmering for some time that just boiled over. All I know is, by Sunday night I was ready to […]

It’s Not PMS and If You Say It Is I’ll Shank You

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’ve been incredibly irritable the past several days. I’m not sure if the Lexapro isn’t working so well, or what it is. Maybe it’s the vacation I keep saying everyone else needs. Clearly I could use one myself. But I think – I think the reason I’m not […]

It’s Hot and Beautiful Outside

…just like me. In your face, Shit-oshi Kanazawa. (I know, infantile…but what do you expect from a woman who hangs out with a 7-year old and a 3-year old all day?) I’m feeling good. It’s a long weekend. The Tech Guru is already on his way home, although he just texted me that he is […]

Snowmageddon is Killing Me

Wow. I know, I know. It’s been, like, forever. It is really easy for me to write blog updates. It is very hard for me to remember to write blog updates. Sometimes. You know, the drugs, the tiredness, the kids, yadda yadda yadda. And then there’s all this goddamn fucking snow. Let me go on […]

Life with Lexapro Thus Far

So… I went through most of yesterday feeling as though I was on the smallest nanosecond of a time delay.  I didn’t mind that too much, except when I was driving. My appetite was better as well, which is good for basic survival, I suppose, but I don’t want to put on any weight so […]

Say Hello to Lexapro!

So, did the doctor thing yesterday evening. My last tweet just prior to leaving was asking whether it was okay to show up at a doctor’s appointment drunk. So, I sat in there and talked about my fucking feelings and thoughts and all that other bullshit, and the first thing she nailed is that I […]
