Better

Got the base for this icon from basicbases, which has been extremely useful for helping me fill up some icon space. I've got 38 now. But I've got room for 100. I wish I had more time to sit in front of Photoshop.

Just so this isn't a GIP

Enjoying cooking again. Less bothered by little daily annoyances. Higher energy. Improved "friskiness" (ahem).

Unlike the SSRIs I've taken in the past, Wellbutrin doesn't seem to make me want to sit still and avoid physical activity. That was always an issue with Prozac and Zoloft. I would feel emotional much better, but even as I felt more motivated to handle mental tasks, I felt my desire to get up and move sort of melt away.

Perhaps Wellbutrin acts more directly on neurochemistry than SSRIs do? The last I read (and admittedly, it was a pretty out-of-date article) nobody was really sure how it worked. But it certainly feels just a little speedy. And it feels as if it has kind of announced its presence with a fairly sudden and marked effect on me, in contrast to how SSRIs always creep up slowly, making tiny and subtle changes.

At any rate, I feel good today.

My antidepessants need some serious tweaking.
I have NO friskiness and I have lots of dark thoughts about my self and my situation.

Glad to hear that SOMEONE has a good mix.

So sorry, hon. Talked to your head doc lately? I know you know this, but it bears repeating, because we can forget from one time to the next; it's worth the hassle and inconvenience to go get the meds tweaked! *hug*

Too sunk in to call head doc.
Too sunk in to schedule sonogram to find out why I have this persistent pain in my abdomen once a month.
Too sunk in to do anything but the bare necessity which is care for child.

All my spoons go to caring for child. No spoons left for anything else.

It is a minor miracle I got a plumber in today to pull out the 3"x5" glob of hairy goo that was so far down the drain I could not reach it with a normal drain-snake. Plumber gave me a $20 discount because we are regular customers. I nearly cried with gratitude.

I guess I need to put calling Dr. Pain on my MustDo list.
