For the past couple of months, I've lost all my enthusiasm for life in general. I don't know why. As far as I can figure, there isn't anything I can pinpoint to be a cause or causes.

I think I mentioned before that my primary care physician upped my anti-anxiety/anti-depression med, and I've been taking that dosage for a couple of weeks now. Maybe I just need more time.

Even though I don't have "the crib" anymore, I still have my ovaries (for the hormones), so I suppose I could still be experiencing PMS-ish symptoms or what-not.

Sorry to be such a "Debbie Downer" this morning, but it's just how I feel lately. I plan on getting a shower soon and getting my act together (hair, make up, etc). That usually perks me up a bit. But, then I have to face the fact I need to get to the Mart today.

At this point, tears are falling on the lenses of my glasses and I can barely see to type. I'm going to end this pity party now by carrying on with my morning routine.

I hope all my hooligans have a great Thursday - don't forget about Friday Secrets if you have something to let go. The Friday Secrets remind me I'm not alone. I may have either similar or different thoughts about topics, but I know I'm not the only person with "issues" in this big old world. :-) (That's a genuine smile).



  1. Seems to be a lot of that today. I just got done posting the Queen video, "The Show Must Go On" on my Tumblr account.

    Don't really know why...

  2. I wish I knew what to say to cheer you up. Maybe your trip to The Mart of Wal will jumpstart your emotional batteries.

  3. We're all entitled to feel off colour now and again. Having to front up a family when you're maybe not feeling 100% can take it out of you.

    I hope you treated yourself today: maybe try a new recipe.

  4. Whenever I've had to change medicines or had the amount of medicines already being taken changed, it can take a while for the antidepressants to build up in your system. Thank God the anti-anxiety meds work right off the bat. Hang in there. It helps if I can find a pleasant distraction (hello copious amounts of picture-taking and woods walks, at least for me). Sometimes it helps to nestle into a really good book. When the niece was little, going out with my sister and her was a great pick-me-up. There's a petting zoo making the rounds at Foodlands in the area soon. Can't remember the dates, but those were always a stinky blast with the niece. Hang in there. You wouldn't believe what I went through to be able to log in to post this. Medicine changes take time, and sometimes tears can be healing. I swear it's like they set off some other brain chemical when you're finished that brings (at least for me) some relief. I may not blog anymore, but I kept my account.

  5. Sorry to hear you're blue but maybe that cry and trip to the Mart are just what you need.

  6. I'm sorry. I hope you start to feel better real soon.

    I've got a touch of domestic and Mommy burnout right now. Just can't seem to get it together.

    I really hope things turn around emotionally for you quickly and you start to feel better. Take care.

  7. :( Hope you feel better soon.

  8. I am so sorry you've been feeling so down lately. I hope the meds help and you get to feeling better soon. Buy yourself something fun at The Mart. Like a pair of really tacky flip flops. That would put a smile on my face. :)

  9. Yep, Blue Wagon Express. Tons of What am I doing? Who am I? What am I? Why am I? etc... going on chez nous.

    The showering thing sounds novel, maybe I'll give it a try. xx
