Heyyyy my peeps! I'm so glad to be able to give you an update from casa de odyssey  ;D  I got discharged from hospital numero dos today and my lovely mother is spending the weekend with me to help me transition to being at home. Tomorrow we will be going to the MALL to go Christmas shopping  :o :o :o The psychiatrist at this hospital put me on a whole different antidepressant in a totally different class (a tricyclic called Anafranil TM) This is supposed to help with both my depression and OCD symptoms. So far so good. I'm feeling a lot better and I'm looking up in spirits. Thanks for all the support everyone!

Shopping was fun! I got my nephew lots of new toys! I just need to shop for my mom now, because I just can't shop for her when she's with me. How is everyone else doing on holiday prep?

Oh and she used her teacher ID to get me 25% on some books and magazines I bought myself as a treat.

Great to see you are at home now Oddy, enjoy the shopping with mum and look after yourself.

Anafranil has been on the market for many years and should serve you well, but keep us updated on how you get on with it.

Aroha and hugs
