I'm On The Pill

No need to worry too much; I'm not on the birth control pill. As a man, taking that pill would just really mess with my hormones anyway. I guess there is a little cause for concern as the pill that I'm on is Fluoxetine; an anti-depressant.
I mentioned on Thursday that I was going to the doctors for them, but I don't know I've mentioned them before then. I've actually been on them for a few months now. I started them when I kept messing up on that diet thing, because my depression was the main reason I was overeating. When I started taking them I was told it would be for at least six months. This past week I discovered that - because this is my third depressive episode - I would likely be on the pills for two years. That's also two years after I start feeling good. It's been four months and my two years haven't started yet.

Things were good the first month I started taking them. The second was better. Then my depression just kicked into overdrive for the past few months, so my doctor decided to increase the dosage. I've gone from 20mg a day to 40mg. I'm also in a position I never wanted to be in. I never wanted to be relying on pills just to live a normal life. That was the reason I was so hesitant about taking anti-depressants in the first place. But that's the situation I've found myself in, and this is what it's going to take to deal with it.

It's The Weekend

Well we all made it through another week, somehow. As for me, I'll be trying to do a good chunk of work so that I can have tomorrow off. I'm thinking about putting in some extra hours at Barnardos and spending some time with Paul. The way my work schedule has worked out says that such a feat is possible, if I work a little harder today.

As a retail expert, I can tell you this is masterful. 

I never really thought about how everyone would sit on the computers 

I need a baby crow 

This is actually remarkably depressing. 

I wish I could stitch. 

Shower beer is best beer  
Judgmental Shiba is Judging You

How I plan to propose 

Schrodinger is in trouble now

I like to think this store has every book. 
No matter what you do this weekend, make it a good one. Until Monday!
