Well, I haven't been on Sparkpeople in about 2 weeks. Since my last post, I have successfully stayed off of the zoloft. However the RLS became extreme while on wellbutrin, and my Doctor decided it was probably the wellbutrin causing it and not the Zoloft withdrawl's. So I was switched to a new SSRI, Viibryd. After two weeks of not sleeping and trying Restoril and Nuerontin, I have finally found a treatment that is helping me sleep, and since stopping the wellbutrin the RLS seems to be getting better. Of course I won't really know until I stop the sleep treatment, which I have been reducing the last couple nights and I've been able to still sleep. My depression has been much better yesterday and today. So maybe the Viibryd is working....yay! I sure hope so, I know my husband is ready to have his wife back.
My birthday was on the 25th, and my husband planned a surprised bday dinner with a few of my closest loved ones. He had a cake made with our family photo on it (me, him, and baby), it was awesome. He doesn't really know how to be supportive of what I'm going through, but he tries really hard, and that showed me how much he still loves me and supports me and wants me to be happy! Ththe e 26th was our sons 1st birthday, which we celebrated the 27th, it was sooo cute and fun, and a lil sad for mommy!
I think I am going to withdraw myself from the challenges I have joined on sparkpeople, and focus on reading The Spark, then restart the challenges at a later time. We are still walking 2 miles everyday. Things are looking up and I'm excited to get back to normal!!
