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 The last I read (and admittedly, it was a pretty out-of-date article) nobody was really sure how it worked.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.

I read the pamphlet *very* carefully when I was on it and there was a little bit where they talked about drug-seeking behavior, and what the charts boiled down to was "People who like speed like this one, although they say it's not as strong as speed."

Kept me from sleeping. Of course, considering how much I've been sleeping these past few weeks, maybe I ought to go back on it...

Well, I certainly liked teh speed back in the day. And I guess you could say that Wellbutrin feels a little like a nice, pharmy amphetamine, like Dexedrine. But I assume that'll level out after another week or two. I actually did have a little trouble getting any really restful sleep last night, for the first time. But this morning, I am still very perky. So far, so good.

Glad to hear it about the still perky. Back in the day, I never messed much with the stimulants... I liked the opiates so well I scared myself, instead. Had the sense never to buy any more once that first lump ran out.

I do need to calibrate my caffeine dose better.
