...that my antidepressants have started to work?
Yesterday, after supper, had the urge to go out for a walk.  So my boy and I walked for about an hour, in the rain.
Today, I did an exercise tape!  And have begun the long put off task of organizing some unpacked boxes.
Oh,  I hope this lasts!!

Hooray, lisale! I must say I am bit green with envy as I type this, but that's great. I am happy for you.

I believe my anti-depressants are also working, but I cannot say that I have had the same glowing results you've had. I think I am still in a mild depression, although I am functioning, just not today, however. (Um, it's 4:30 in the afternoon and I am still in my pyjamas.)

Oh, well. Tomorrow is another day.

Hi zinniagirl
I started taking Wellbutrin and find it so much better than most of the SSRI's.  On Celexa, it did ease my anxiety, but I was so "unanxious" that I was wanting to sleep all day, absolutely no energy.  It was very hard on my son.  I feel so guilty about it, but the poor little guy wasn't even getting out to the park on a nice day.
I will be thinking of you; I know how you feel only too well.  And isn't it sad that even though I think my meds are working, I'm worried that I'm being "tricked" and that it's just a temporary respite.  Just have to keep up hope, I guess.

from one who's been there and back several times: enjoy it while it's there. trick you? no. remove the fog from before your eyes? definitely. will it last? who cares? take it for what it's worth. believe me, what you're experiencing is a real blessing for however long it lasts.

That light at the end of he tunnel?  It's an on-coming train.

Thats great news and yes, it could be that the meds are lifting your depression. Expect good and bad days but on the bad days, just remember how 'good' your good days are.

Take care and keep up the good work
