Hey kids, i've been gone for a while. been getting my self better. I currently take 20mg. Have been weaning myself down. Last fall and early winter i had the blues real bad. i asked the doc to put me up to 30mg and she put me on 40mg. don't know if it was the SAD-lack of sunshine-or just family situations that caused me to slump.(daughter went off to college-now empty nester). Probably a combo of the two.
So, now that it is spring and i will be turning 49, i have committed to be fit, fabulous and 50 in a year. Walking on the treadmill i bought last summer and am on the SouthBeach diet. Feeling like am doing something positive. I actually am kinda fun to be around. I think! Oh yeah, I getting braces on my teeth too
I don't think that i will ever completely get off the Celexa. I have a genetic disposition. If i am careful and not drink too much caffiene at work, i am easier to get along with. Otherwise i tend to be confrontive and then have a fear of losing my job. I really think that my condition is more anxiety than depression, but i think both are very interelated.
