Much better!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

The Dr. switched my Bipolar medication, and I have been taking Prozac since mid November. It is working WONDERFULLY and I have been able to lose the 20 pounds i gained on the old medication. :) SO happy. I started back at the gym this morning, and kicked my butt on the elliptical. I am so sore, but it feels so good. i can't wait for tomorrow. :)

I started Medication for Bipolar disorder back in September. Since taking them (one of them being Zyprexa) I gained 20lbs!!!! So, I am off that one now, and just taking Prozac by its self. I hope it works. I am happy that I am already down 10 pounds, so I am almost back to my starting weight. Hooray!
Thats it for this update. Wish me luck. :)

Happy Bithday! :)

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

Today my little baby boy turns 2. It also marks the anniversary of my decision to get healthy and lose weight. Since then I have lost about 25 pounds total. Which means I am almost at the same weight I was before I found out I was pregnant. Its a good feeling to be back to that weight, however I was overweight already when I got pregnant. But today is still a great day, it is a good reminder that I can do it, but it will take some time. And honestly, I am okay with that now.

I am also happy to say that I am back, with a vengeance, on SP. I am going start working harder than ever to get healthy and lose the weight. Hooray! I am excited to go back to the gym and start working toward my goal. :)

Depression: update

Thursday, July 23, 2009

I am going on to a DR to get on medication. I go in for my appointment on Aug 3rd. Wish me luck, I am really nervous. I hope to find something that will work well right away, but I am not against changing the medication if it doesn't work for me. I will post another update when I know more.

Depression .....

Saturday, July 18, 2009

I hate dealing with this some days. I wish there were an easier way for someone with depression and no health insurance options (like myself) to get some kind of treatment. In my case it is necessary, and I am going to have to try to live paycheck to paycheck and foot the medical bill on my own. That really sucks.

After some deep thought on the matter, and a few "episodes" today I have decided that it is in my family's, and my own, best interest for me to get on some kind of treatment for it. I don't want my children to grow up feeling the same way about myself as I did with my mother. I guess its not really a fair comparison... me and my mother, but I still don't want that.

I have dealt well with having depression the past few years, and I have made some pretty dramatic improvements on my own, but there is only so much that I can do for myself. I honestly feel like I have come as far as I can on my own, and I need some help from here. I don't know if it should be therapy or medication, or even both, and I don't know what will work best for me. I will post on it again as soon as I know more.

  I am so sorry for your situation. Before my husband signed up with the Veterans, he had no insurance and he is on disability. There is a free clinic, here, and you only pay a few dollars. I am fortunate to have insurance, but the meds and the doctors don't always work. There is quite a bit going on in my life right now and the depression gets worse. I wish you well and do hope things get better for you. I hope you can work things out. Let us know. LOL, Lakota4 emoticon
