  1. Yesssss! *fist in the air punch* Positive feedback at work is such a mood booster! Good on you for doing those things despite feeling yuck. I hope you start to feel better real soon. Lol this made me think of my father in law. He goes to the dentist so rarely that when he does, his dentist has died and he gets a new one 🤣🤣 I'm glad you got a friendly maid and glad your pdoc will be around for a while!
  2. That's great, it feels good to create and complete something you are happy with Well done!! I really ought to get back into exercise. Today I got my daughter ready for her kindy visit on time and she enjoyed herself. Leaving kindy also went really smoothly.
  3. Awesome. I so relate with that feeling of wanting to leave early. That's exciting!! Good luck
  4. That's awesome. I'm glad your son had a better day! Getting a kid somewhere on time is a massive achievement 😂 It's great to having stimulating work. And it's also great to not be in zombie mode.
  5. Tired, dreading the rest of the day, counting down the hours until I can sleep again. Climate change anxiety is back. It's 1pm and I already over ate and made poor food choices. Basically hating on myself with the limited energy I have left.
  6. With depression we tend to focus and ruminate on the shitty aspects of life. But if we look harder we can find good things. If you're up for it, let's share what went well today/lately. I'll go first. Today I showered and dressed and put make up on. I went to the coffee shop down the road from my house and the guys there are getting to know me; we have some enjoyable chats. What went well/is going well for you?
  7. Does lamotrigine basically increase glutamate @argh? Or level it out or something? (I realise it's probably not that simple...)
  8. I was under the impression that lamotrigine and abilify don't cause a loss of sex drive? My previous pdoc had my try abilify to mitigate the sexual side effects of my SSRI, and now I'm on lamotrigine because sexual side effects was one of my biggest complaints (aside from SSRIs only partially helping).
  9. Holy shit. I fainted in my third trimester (so fell over) and it was the most terrifying thing that ever happened to me. Glad you were okay!!
  10. About 50% of the time. Plastic bags have been banned here, yay~! What was your favourite childhood toy/teddy?
  11. Thanks! I'm not worried about it being serious. Was just something I noticed that had me wondering (lamotrigine must be helping a lot because I am not anxious over any of this stuff anymore!) I had some skin itchiness/tingling around my eyes when I first started but haven't had any of that for a while now. Is your skin sensitivity ongoing? That sucks if so.
