I have a new head

Thursday, December 02, 2010

I’m pleased to say that I’m feeling OK again, actually I’m feeling better now than I can ever remember.
This is because I’m taking medication called Citalopram. I’m feeling genuinely happy and sleeping like a baby, hopefully this will continue when I come off the tablets in about six months time. The sleep deprivation and anxiety is at the moment like an ancient memory.
This is a post of nothing but good news, and thats what I like to post. While I was ill I didn’t want to post about it, my answer to feeling bad is to withdraw from life and I’ve never been good at asking for help... this of course is unhealthy, and in the end the problem I had of not sleeping and the anxiety was only solved with help from others. My doctor, my wife and family have all been great.
And although I had to take several weeks off work, when I returned everyone was very good to me, if I didn’t 100 percent appreciate my place of work before, I certainly do now after the considerate way I’ve been treated.
During the weeks that I’ve been away from Sparkpeople I‘ve put on 4 lbs which isn’t too bad.
Today I decided to start again. emoticon I hope everyone is doing alright, best wishes.

    I take Welbutrin and that little pill, (we call them "my happy pills") really makes such a difference! My daughter is bi-polar and her off meds is bad bad bad. On meds a happy camper! Sometimes starting a new medication can cause a temporary weight gain or loss, of course in my case it's usually a gain LOL
    Welcome back!

    Glad to hear the good news! I missed the other but am glad to see that things are working out. Sometimes we need a mental break from things too. Your experience sounds very similar to what brought me to SP (in a round about way) 9 months ago.

    Sounds like you have a plan and are reaching out to those who love you and again to those of us here at SP that care about you. Take care and remember we are always here to "listen." emoticon

    I'm SO HAPPY you're back here with us and to hear your GOOD NEWS!!! emoticon I had wondered where you were. NOTHING else matters if our mind-body-spirit health is in jeopardy -- those measly 4 lbs. will be kicked to the curb in no time.

    Stay with us here! We need your unique, wonderful, engaging energy!

    Glad to hear that you are feeling better. I know how you feel, without my meds, I would be lost in a deep, dark hole. But instead, I have a great outlook on life and can truly appreciate all that life has to offer! I hope that you continue to improve and that your Christmas season is wonderful!
