  1. *sigh*, NO, this is not a given. Please don’t make such black & white statements about meds. I’ve been on up to 400mg for years. I lost weight on it, and I didn’t have sugar cravings. YMMV.

    What are you listening to right now?

    The NBC evening news. Lester Holt rocks.

    Currently -1F. Perfect day for defrosting the big freezer, I just stashed the frozen food on the back porch 😂

    Winds just picked up an hour or so ago, blowing snow. 14F currently, with a windchill of -5F. Anywhere from -4 to -1 tonight.
  7. Yes, I’ve called in a panic a few times over the years on a late Friday afternoon, my pharmacist would give me enough to last til Tuesday. I think it helps that it’s a small locally owned place, but a chain should do that, providing that’s where your scripts are filled.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Today was the one year anniversary of husband’s death. I feel oddly detached.

    Very ashamed, hit my dog :(

    The fact that you feel terrible about it says enough... you’re under overwhelming stress, and you lashed out. You didn’t hurt him, and I’m sure he forgave you, dogs are awesome like that. Please don’t beat yourself up further, instead try to let it go (I know, easier said than done). I’m sorry you’re going through so much, it all sounds grossly unfair. I see no need to even think about telling your therapist. You told us, let that be sufficient. You’ve suffered enough. Turn your focus back to what you need to do to get through this, and forget the rest. Good luck with your surgery.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    My head is finally settling a bit, again. My almost-19-yo son suddenly found an apartment in another small town nearby, and lo and behold, he moved out this weekend. Now that I’m over the shock, I’m enjoying the quiet, it’s now just me and my 16yo.
  11. No, I don’t believe it for a second. If you can “choose” to feel any other way, then you do not have clinical depression. Sure, you can go through a traumatic event, and choose how you handle it, but that’s for most folks, not people who are burdened with MI. I’m personally outraged your pdoc would be so callous and nonunderstanding of the scope of depression that she would think this would be helpful. Tell her to jump in a lake then choose to grow gills...
  12. That’s the way I see it. Take one a day (and I would interpret that as *up to* one a day, take half twice a day if that’s helpful), but only if you need it. Maybe she was encouraging you take it more often, and not wait til things got too bad.

    11F at 11am, but brilliantly sunny.
  14. I take 600mg IR at night. It doesn’t make me sleepy per se, just kind of tired.
  15. I tried out the seroquel XR, personally did not like it. Didn’t sleep as well, and 12 hours after I took it, kinda got walloped when it kicked in again. That would be early morning, so, not cool. That said, my pdoc kept the dosage the same between IR and XR, which was 300mg.
