Just checking In

Thought I'd give you a little update on my condition. They are going to up my anti-depressants and see if that helps with my fatigue and general ennui. I don't have the get up and go I used to have, and I could sleep all the time. I'm sleeping well at night, so that's not the problem - ergo, it's the depression. And I still don't have any interest in doing anything, even reading. If this doesn't work, they will try another prescription as this will be the highest dose of this medication that I can take. I'm tired of feeling exhausted; tired of not being able to read and my writing time has sucked. At least I think about the book - that's something, right?

Oh Sweetie. I am praying they get the medication sorted out. And yes, thinking about your writing counts.

Hugs, Bailey, I hope you feel better soon! With all the medicines available, surely they will find the right match for you soon!

Hang in there, Bailey. We're rooting for you to best it.

I hope they'll soon get your medication right. It's an awful thing to go through. Sending lots of hugs.

Let's hope they sort everything out for you. Anti-depressants are all very well, but they're not treating the cause, are they? Just the outcome. A friend of mine has been on them for more than 10 years and now if she even lowers her dose, she gets really nasty.

Hey, I'm just as upset by the Cowboys' draft as you are, ok?

But seriously, I hope that you come through this. It's a tough road when you don't feel like doing anything.

Hang it there... part of this (and I speak from experience here) is the grief manifesting... even if you're not crying etc, it's still going to be there. I know it's hard & frustrating most of all, but - as "they" say - this too shall pass. Might hurt like a kidney-stone, but it will pass...

I agree with starsong - hope everything gets better soon. Not wanting to read is sad :(

Marty said...

Yes, thinking about it counts :) I'll be closer to you this afternoon than I've ever been!

Lis said...

Oh shoot, the first post I did didn't come up. But wanted to send you *hugs* and say that thinking about writing is pretty well equal to writing in my book :) Hope your back to feeling like yourself again soon!

Hang in there...it takes a while for them to get the right dosage!

Love you sweetie!!!!

I'm so sorry you're going through this, Bailey. You've just come out of a really tough year so it's no wonder you're struggling with depression. Things will get better. Believe that. Sending big hugs your way.
