I went to my psychiatrist today and told her how I felt. She told me I should continue taking zoloft but to also take Wellbutrin. Have any of you taken Wellbutrin before? She is putting me on a low dose of it. I'm worried about weight gain but she said that shouldn't happen with Wellbutrin. She said the Wellbutrin will help me with being motivated and less tired. She also told me I should be more assertive with my parents and try to change my thinking patterns when I don't feel good enough, pretty enough, smart enough etc. I hope the Wellbutrin will increase my energy and concentration. If anyone has taken this please let me know how it worked for you! Thank you!
I am glad you saw your Pdoc today and that your adding wellbutrin as sometimes a combo of the meds will make the difference.
Do you see a therapist also, someone who can help you learn to feel good about yourself as a persona and not let your parents comments keep putting you down.
I can imagine the stress you are under. Please take care and know we are all here for you and reading your posts.
I imagine how hard it is for you Confused knowing what you are going through and not having your parents be very supportive of you. Did I read in another post that you are going to a community college right now? It sounds like your parents want you to put everything in the past and push on. I know that is very difficult at this time for you. Try not to let their opinions get to you. You know that you are doing the best you can providing the circumstances. In fact I think you are doing quite well and deserve to pat yourself on the back!

I think you need to make a decision as to what you want to do with your life. If your parents keep telling you that you cant do it, then make it your motivation to prove them wrong. I have done this before. When I failed my first year at college, I said I was going to take a year out and then return to college. Everybody (Including my parents) told me that I would like the full-time wage too much to go back to college. So I motivated myself by proving them wrong because I believed in myself.
I thought I answered your post last night, but maybe I didn't submit it. Who knows, that is me for you.
I wouldn't dwell on what you said. It was an accident, so to speak. You said that he smiled at you so I don't think he thought anything of it. So dont' be embarrassed. Who knows maybe you will become friends with him. In fact it sounded kind of cute. I can just picture you saying that. So don't let it stop you from going back to the gym. Just go back as if it didn't happen.
I think that we all do that at one time or another, I wouldn;t worry about that too much, and please don't let it stop you from going back to the gym. It is different to me though that they use fingerprinting. Things change though and I probably am not up on the new changes.
I hope that you have a wonderful day. And as always email me at any time. I love hearing from you.
Have a wonderful day,
peace and hugs, Karen
That is something to be so proud of, I commend you for that. I think Confused is struggling because she has her parents dictating everything and hopefully with the help of her counselor she can achieve the same as you. At least to be doing what she wants with her life, without her parents telling her what they want all of the time.
Everytime I read your name I think of an Elton John song. Sad songs they say so much. LOL
I too believe that our journeys do bring us to a good place in life. And I have found that there are all kinds of little journeys throughout our lives. I feel as long as I am doing the best that I can, and it doesn't have to be perfect but just to try, that things will work out okay for me. And even if it is small, the journey is still a significant part of me and my life.

It sounds like your therapist is really on to something and I believe that this will be good for you. I would do what he says. And keep working with him.
You sound like you are doing a lot better. I know what those guys did to you hurts. But there are just some bad people out there and hopefully you wont get used anymore by them. I am really proud of you. You are doing a good job.
Luv and hugs Karen
