Hearing that I am a pain to live with was hard and today was my first day on Prozac. I took it many years ago, but I don't remember much about it except I didn't cry at funerals (didn't love that).

So, I am sad I have to take this to be a parent and to be around other people...maybe I am exaggerating. I asked my sister if the prozac will help with the depression from having to take prozac. emoticon

Anyhoo. I am so tired...but i wonder if that is because I am initially feeling defeated at having to take it. I tried to fix this myself, but apparently it is not helping.

I hope I don't lose the desire to run. I was enjoying that. emoticon I do love my Sparkfriends!

    When I first tried Prozac, a thousand years ago, it curbed my appetite, helping me to lose most of the 50 pounds I'd gained from taking tricyclics just prior. Too bad it did nothing for depression, but I am resistant to anti-depressants. The important thing, though, is that there is no shame or sign of weakness or character flaw in taking these meds. If we have headaches, we take aspirin or whatever; if we are diabetic, we take oral meds or insulin injections. You know that depression is an illness and, if a prescription makes the difference, it's well worth the price of admission.
