Hi guys,
Well, today I am feeling great (not manic)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah yeah yeah yeah I maybe feel a little bit of hypomania, but barely!!!
The weather getting warmer around here and snow almost gone has helped SO much. And I have walked 3 out of 5 days this week.
The Lexapro has not had a chance to kick in at all (second day at half a dose). Not sure if the Wellbutrin still being in my system has caused this uplift???  Don't really care what it is, just so happy to finally feel good today after 6 months of depression!!!!!
Only one thing could stop this in it tracks.......................My Mom stopped talking to me and my sister 3 weeks ago, and sister and I have been trying to deal.....I get nervous everytime the phone rings long distance, thinking it could be her and that she is calling to tear into me again, or that she calls and upsets my pregnant sister. SO, I hope that either my Mom doesn't call so I can enjoy this mood change and the weekend, or if she does call I hope we can resolve things.  Make a long story short, she is furious at me and my sister because we invited her ex-husband (our Dad) to my nephew's skating event a few weeks ago.  It's a crazy situation and I just don't need the stress.  I don't want to deal with this, and having too many panic attacks to count........
Anyway, today I am celebrating!!!! turn Thank you for all your support, as always much needed!!!

I hate it when divorced parents are so self-centered they can't put their
differences aside around the children. This is the way I grew Mom and Dad
divorced when I was 8 and they still won't speak to each other and it's
been 30 years!!!

Hi Mogli,

I'm glad you had an up day. I hope it continues. Good for you!

I just had a falling out with my mother too. As far as I'm concerned it's permanent. We just can't get along and she causes me nothing but heartache. But like you, she never could deal with my father (her ex) and couldn't even understand why my brother and I were upset when he died. It was crazy. But anyway, I just wanted to chime in and lend support. Caller ID and email are your friends.

Be well,

Wow, I feel very supported. I am sorry about all of you having hardships like mine with our mothers. It's so awful. I did spend my childhood/teen years afraid of my mom, we could never do anything right and the consequences were terrible and did not fit the so-called "crimes" we committed.

I am not going to answer the phone this weekend if my Mom calls. Serafena, you said it 'caller id..." My bf has been a huge support so I will continue to lean on him this weekend.

I really don't want to have to put boudaries in place with  my Mom but I think that is something that I am not going to have a choice in.

Anyway, it's one hour until I get to go home from work and I am still feeling really good. Thanks again everyone and I will try to check in from home this weekend, our computer is broken, but may get it running !

   Yay, its great whenever one of us has a great time. SOrry about the Mom thing, mine and I went thru some issues a while back but we came thru them and talk several times a week now. She has learned to stay away from several subjects, and i have learned to not be so critical.

    Have a great weekend, here on the east coast we have a HUGE nor-eastern going on here and it is windy and raining like you wouldnt believe.
