Prozac it IS!
« on: August 09, 2006, 01:09:36 PM »
Hey guys, been having a rough go of it lately.  Went and visited my therapist who has helped me through all of this and decided to get on some happy meds!  Been a very stressful summer for me and I finally came to the conclusion that legal drugs may help more than the illegal ones in this case!

I will keep you all posted and you can bet i haven't lost my sarcasm OR my sense of humor!  Just to prove it... Matty The Damned this is for you!

LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

Welcome to the SSRI Club! It's not such a bad place to be. Let us know how it goes.  :-* Jay
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

George Eliot, Middlemarch, final paragraph

Andrew: I would add: Have thorough discussions about knowing when's the right time to stop, the pros and cons of stopping, how to stop the proper/safe way, etc ..... I assume people do not want to become dependent and do want to save money, etc.

That's exactly how I feel.  It's really a much better place than where I was prior to starting 'em!
