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 […]

The Fork in the Fallopian Tubes

I went in for my annual GYN appointment the other day. I’m trying out a new practice. It’s a weird move for me because I LOVE LOVE LOVE my former doctor, but she’s in Connecticut, which means every 6 months or so I’m driving through 3 states to see her. It’s getting to be a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
