  1. ....and, I took a shower :bathbubbles:
  2. I don't know if I should be proud of this, but I gave myself permission to stay in bed this morning since I'm experiencing side effects from new medication. Also, since the medication is affecting my appetite, I'm proud of myself for managing to eat eat lunch and then a snack, even though I don't really feel like eating.
  3. Blah, off-kilter, slightly lonesome, frustrated with the side effects of my new meds.
  4. Being over with the side effects of this new med, and the new med working (fingers crossed).
  5. I have had dizziness, especially in the mornings, since I started these. It has been hell so far. I've had hot flashes, diarrhea, and a general feeling of strangeness.
  6. I have struggled with feelings of worthlessness, and although I have what others consider abilities and talents, I have done very little with my life. I'm sorry you are going through this.
  7. I started taking Zoloft Tuesday night, and I have been dizzy ever since. I'm also having trouble sleeping. I had diarrhea yesterday (I assume from the Z) and today I am hot and can't seem to cool off. It is very discouraging because I hate going through this discomfort (to put it mildly) and still not know if these meds will help. Because of the side effects, I have been unable to do my routine daily, which includes walking, writing, and posting here.
  8. I feel depressed, anxious, overheated, tired but unable to sleep.
  9. Maybe I filtered his comments wrong, but it seemed he was rude. As someone said, I could choose not to go to him again.It's too bad it had to happen though, because all those things are setbacks for me.
  10. Thanks, I don't know if my reaction is better or worse than most, but the first three mornings seem really bad to me. Some things I've tolerated well, others not. I know that right now, I can barely function for hours after waking up. I take one in the morning and one at night. I have no problem at night after taking, but before taking my morning dose, I'm already feeling strange.
  11. Have been on Zoloft for about three days. The first morning after starting them I woke up dizzy, and was unable to get out of bed until almost noon. Same thing today, except I had diarrhea and terrible heartburn. I'm wondering how long these side effects will last? I have not been able to eat much in the daytime because of the side effects, and I had already lost weight as it was. I also have take Nortriptyline for about 3 months.
  12. I washed some dishes, took some plants out and watered them, and took a shower.
  13. I'm still feeling out of it because of the side effects (dizziness mostly) of starting Zoloft.
  14. I'm feeling strange from the Zoloft I just started taking. I was woozy this morning, and didn't feel like getting out of bed. I feel nauseous, my feet are cold and numb.
  15. Source: Will It Ever Get Better?
  16. Now I feel like crap after talking with the doctor. He was very condescending, and didn't seem to like how I answered any of the questions he asked.
  17. Anxious about my appointment with the pdoc today. I've waited months for this appointment, and now I'm having anxiety about going. It couldn't be coming at a better time though, because I've had a few really bad days recently.
  18. People who assume things about me, and try to give advice based on their assumptions.
  19. I am thankful that I finally got a call from the mental health clinic to see the pdoc tomorrow, after waiting over four months.
  20. Anyone besides me that want people in your life, but when they come, you push them away?
  21. I am thankful that I have the option to learn from the past. I am thankful for those who can forgive my mistakes. I am thankful for sleep when it comes.
  22. - I got warm after taking a hot bath -- I got through the worst part of my day --- I have leftovers for dinner
  23. My goal for today is to get myself out of the funk I'm in. My goal for the week is to attempt to rebuild my confidence and hope, which I feel has shrunk recently. I want to go back to relying on myself for my ultimate happiness, and not looking to others to rescue me from insecurities about myself.
  24. This is difficult today, because I don't have a lot to be proud of. The past couple of days, however, I got a lot of chores done, bought groceries, rearranged some furniture, and did my walks.
