Feeling Normal-ish Again

Ok...I'm back :)

I have experienced this depression thing once before (years ago). It was not nearly to the extreme that some suffer but for me it was debilitating. The great news was that Prozac nipped it right in the bud and I sorted my issues out shortly after. The first time I was having some martial problems, doing school, and stressing out over my ability to get a job after I graduated from college.

This time There has been a little stress over work but nothing like it was the last time. This time the depression blind-sided me. I had already made the job decision, the house was sold, David and I were doing fine. The kids were all fine. The weight-loss was great. I really have no reason really except physical things I guess. peri-menopause, something else??

I feel much better again today. Although the last few days have been a two steps forward one step back routine I really feel like the meds are working. They are not working the same as last time (I felt better right away and felt the side effects really early). The only side effect I am experiencing at this point is weight-loss (not such a bad one after all). Today was pretty stressful at work and I had very little difficulty coping.

I hope everyone is feeling good and living in sunshine.

Mood swings maybe? I'm afraid I get them quite a lot. Glad you're feeling better.
