Still alive

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Well it's another day at work with my happy face pasted on. Took the wellbutrin for the first time today. Takes three weeks to decide if its working. That feels like an eternity. I am hoping to not gain weight on it, I know it can go either way with this one. Makes me gain and I freak out and stop takin it. Played this game for years. Feel more stable today less suicidal so I guess that's good. Awake all night maybe just too tired to be crazy.

    I'm glad that today is an improvement. I am on wellbutrin also. No real side effects and it does give me my energy back. I also take celexa, lamictal, and risperdol. My current mix seems to be working. So far, just a few lbs weight gain, but I've been maintaining the same range for a while now. Going to Curves has helped me not gain any more at least. The most important thing is your state of mind. If you need the meds, please take them. Any weight gain pales in comparison to the negative, destructive thoughts that come with bipolar.

    well i, for one, am glad. worried about you! wellbutrin was pretty ok for me. no weight gain (they actually prescribe it at times to counteract side effects from other antidepressants). give it some time to give your brain that little boost of serotonin emoticon
sorry you didn't sleep well-- that was me yesterday! but glad you are feeling somewhat better.
maybe to counteract any effects from either the meds or the quitting smoking (it does reduce your metabolism) you could add in some weight training or something in addition to your yoga? i do a little during commercials, on the couch. good for the ol' teacher arm as well. just a thought!
hang in there.
