after my psychitrist said i was moderately depressed, which isn;t mild but isn't severly depressed, which is a good thing. I think alot of my depression comes in my standing in life and some other things like my dad dying and the stoppage of marijuana after 10 years, which i used the marijuana to help cope with his death and to numb myself. i took 1/2 tab today in the morning along with 3 tylenol pm, and slept a full 8 hours, which usually doesn;t happen because i always wake up or something. only time i woke up was when my fiance kissed me goodbye before she went to her sisters house for the night. but right now i have no feeling from the lexapro, but then again it's day one. my psychitirst told me to take tylenol for any headaches i get, but i think im going to just take it in the morning before i go to bed along with the tylenol pm just so im knocked out for the day. he also said i could take nyquil, but to not do it that often just when i am restless, which hasn't been a huge problem of late for me. seems like sleep is getting esier, because i am controlling my brain with the anxiety i feel. i just make my mind go blank. but i think finding a new job, with regular 9-5 hours is only going to help my sleeping, as it is very hard sometimes to sleep in the day time, especially when my fiance is home on the weekends and i would like to spend that time with her. i almost feel guilty going to bed. anyways, sorry for the rambling, just letting everybody know my experience so far. anybody else know someone who works graveyard who has problems like i do? please write back and let me know, thanks.
