  1. Exhausted. Ready for the end of the week and some sleep!
  2. exhausted, I just need to make it to the end of the week and have everything I need turned in on time! ahh!
  3. Earlier I had a tamale and some mini quesadillas. Later I had some pumpkin seeds because I was peckish.
  4. Does an old AP chemistry book count?
  5. that sounds soooo good. I want to craft Christmas presents, play games, read, study chemistry, and do anything except sleep, even though it's nearly 1am and I should just go to sleep!
  6. Thinking about how I need to sleep for tomorrow (been having sleeping issues) and how weird of s game The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is. (It's a video game).
  7. I haven't read in a good month or so. I'm technically in the middle of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, and An Ember in the Ashes by Saaba Tahir. I need to keep reading!
  8. Ohgosh, This is something I would discuss with your doctor. My dr has previously told me higher doses help with anxiety so it could be a worthwhile conversation to have. I'm probably going to initiate a similar conversation with my doctor soon.
  9. Hi Hope2016! It's encouraging to hear you're feeling differently already. When I started Prozac I started feeling a difference by the second day. To be honest I actually hadn't heard anyone else who responded so quickly other than myself, so it's a little validating! Like you, I also started on 10mg. I'm glad to hear you've been able to leave the house! Let us know how it goes okay?
  10. I made puppy chow yesterday... I keep eating it because it's so good! So much sugar though...
  11. Oh my goodness you sound like me. I'm actually a former illustrator and designer, but I can't do it anymore because I beat myself up about it so badly. I do other crafts to scratch that itch, including coloring books!
  12. Recently I was talking to one of my peers who was acting like a zombie because she had trouble getting her meds from the pharmacy. I asked if I could get her a drink of water and then asked if she wanted a hug. Her response: "No. .....yes." The following week when I saw her next I asked how she was doing and she was doing a lot better. She seemed really appreciative and I told her briefly about myself just so that she knew I could relate somewhat. She looked me in the eye and said: "If you ever need to talk, I'm here. Really." That was good to hear.
  13. Does anyone craft? I find crafting to be de-stressing for me. I have tried a whole lot of different crafts, but the main ones I do now are crochet/knit and use perler beads to make pixel art. I also like to put washi (decorative) tape on things like binder clips or in my planner to make it pretty. I also like adult coloring books! I have a lot of pens and colored pencils I use for it. Other things I have done previously but not as much anymore (though I have the supplies!): sewn book-binding, polymer clay sculpture, jewelry and chain maille, paper crafts, and illustration. While I love crafting and it helps keep me grounded, I also worry about all the money I spend on supplies and the time used. For instance, I have dozens upon dozens of pixel Mario and Sailor Moon that I made that is just lying around. I worry I could be doing something more productive and spending my money in a better way. But it's being used almost as therapy for me... sigh. I go back and forth! Can anyone relate?
  14. I agree that exercise is probably good for me, but I'm so out of shape and debilitated by depression/anxiety that getting started is really overwhelming for me! It's a catch-22; I feel bad so I need to exercise, but I feel worthless because it's hard, so I shut down more. Do you have any tips for getting started?
  15. Ledam, I'm sorry you've been having trouble! If I was inconsistent with my meds, I definitely felt my mood drop. It's really important to stick to a schedule and take them as your doctor recommended. Maybe you could set a timer or try to take them at the same time, like every morning with breakfast or before bed?
