A bit of whining I suppose...

I've been on 20mg of Paxil for OCD now about a month. Though it has helped me get some sleep and get back to eating, my thoughts are still EXTREMELY obsessive. I haven't called in to the dr because I have an appointment tomorrow and I kept telling myself the meds were new and I had this appt coming up. I'm really really hoping that an increase of change of meds will help because I don't feel like myself. If not, I'd like a slower brain, please.

And my other complaint. This has been awhile now I've been at "getting back to normal"... it truly was a fight when I started, so I guess I got a little break and now I have to fight again.

To end on a positive, cooking seems to keep me busy, but every recipe so far is bland! I guess that's from growing up in Louisiana? :) I feel like it all needs some cayenne.

Therapy today, doctor tomorrow... one day at a time.

Yep, one day at a time. It is all anyone can do.

And yes, it is a fight to beat any kind of mental illness, but it is a fight worth fighting and one that can be won.

It might not feel like it my dear Bean, but you HAVE improved alot...that doesn't mean you may not need a little extra help...going up in dose is usually the first step...

I hope you have a productive day with therapy and doctor.

PS we add a little crab boil to a lot of our dishes (just a little!!) and of course Tony Chachere's to give it that lil boost

How about that game?? Pathetic!!

I learned to love ceyenne pepper form my first husband who was from NC... I like it better than any other pepper. So if you are use to it and not using it, I imagine things would taste bland to you.

I hope that you all are having a good day. Take care all...

PS Courtney,  maybe a mood stabilizer would help.  I use to think way too much and it slowed that process down.  I am still alert, and okay, just no obsessive thinking...

Thanks everyone

Karen, I will ask about mood stabilizer tomorrow at my visit, thanks for the suggestion. Guess it's just been a rough couple days. I know counseling and spending the night out of town will help today.
