Isn't exercise just the ticket to get those endorphines pumping!

Glad to hear that you are living life full of the emotions that accompany life. Today is a new day!

Gratitude helps Attitude doesn't it!

I am thankful for another day!

I did not cry during therapy today. I expected to go through a whole box of tissues, but I think I am just all cried out. Or the meds are finally kicking in, I don't know. We can only hope!

Truthfully, these meds don't seem to be doing anything except making me sick to my stomach. But maybe they are working, since I'm not feeling particularly suicidal and I do have an inkling of gratitude for where I am in life so those are good things.

Now I am where I have been wanting to be forever it seems... not in a relationship, free to choose anyone I would like. I hope that I can keep my standards high. I hope that someday I feel a spark with a man again, and that I don't have to wait too long.

Good Morning Ginger,
Are you taking your meds in the morning? How long do you wait to eat something? I forget what they suggest with Prozac but if you are experiencing stomach distress make sure you eat some yogurt or anything that you can.

I am glad to hear that you aren't feeling particularly suicidal. I hope that you realize that happiness is an inside job. No relationship will ever fill the void we create. We have to fill it up first before we can be satisfied and peaceful in any relationship.

Did you learn anything significant at your session about yourself?

In twelve step programs, they recommend not starting a relationship for at least six months to a year. I think its a sound suggestion. When I first attended AA, I was starting to feel peace and serenity for the first time. I was starting to enjoy my own company. Then I went out on a blind date because I felt it was harmless and this is my current hubby. Go Slow. Get to Know who you are without a relationship to complicate and extend the lesson.

I take strattera, and did take prozac, and didn't have trouble with the prozac, but have it with strattera.

I have to take mine immediately after eating a meal - not one minute before, not one minute after - if I do, look out, I want to puke - the ONLY thing that gets me past the nausea is liquid maalox - I don't even think I take a full dose - just drink as much as I can gag down - usually followed by a slug of gingerale to wash out the nasty taste - but it helps - so does gingerale and graham crackers!

I am glad to hear you are feeling better.

make sure you journal or chart your moods - it is better than trying to to remember if the meds are helping or how many good and bad days you really are having - if that med doesn't work - there are plenty of other options out there.

I have been on prozac, lexapro, effexor, and a bipolar med - and ended up on strattera (i'm add also) - but think that above all else, my CODA issues are what's causing my inattentiveness and compulsiveness, not ADD and depression.

keep plugging along.

Thanks for the advice on the meds. My biggest problem with them right now is my mother, who is dead set against me taking them, and reminds me daily that I shouldn't be taking them.

The good news is that I've reduced some of the OCD behavior I engage in when I'm particularly stressed, and I'm not overeating, eating to feel full and loved. I bought a bag of dove dark chocolate promises, and I can eat one and feel pretty satisfied.

I have never been alone in my life, I realize that now. I always had a love interest waiting in the wings somehow, except for about 6 months when I was 25 (and I dated a LOT, always was going out). There is no one that I am interested in. I'm kind of bored to be honest. Yes, now is the time to do ME things, but I'm still busy sulking and being tired. *grin*
