I hadn't mentioned it before, but something of note: I've been on Wellbutrin for three weeks, most noticing its effects over the last week and a half. I haven't written - haven't felt the NEED to write.

All is calm. There are no ups and downs, only a single even line. No need to wake Jesse up every other day and tell him I need to go the psych ward because I feel like hurting myself. No need to write obsessively trying to track the wildly undulating moods.

Just quiet. Quiet outside, quiet inside, quiet...me. I do miss writing, but I do not miss the swings. If this is the "zombie" feeling so many other people report feeling, then being a zombie is pretty fantastic.

I'm sorry I didn't try this earlier. Might have avoided more than one psych stay if I'd had.

I am really glad you are okay, and glad that you are on a level. I hope the desire to write comes back soon, your talent and your interests are still there so I trust it will. And taking care of yourself and being on a level is good. Keep taking care. X

I was thinking about you today, because it's so strange to not have heard from you for a few weeks; glad you're all right!

I never took Wellbutrin™; I always had SSRIs prescribed for me, mainly Zoloft™—which made me fart, and eventually stopped working. It was so difficult to get taken off it by a professional, I had to get switched to another drug in the same class—which didn't work—then went off that one cold-turkey. The doc at that time was a psychopharmacologist, and he seriously didn't care; he practically told me not to let the door hit me in the ass on the way out.

Sunlight has been my antidepressant for over 15 years; it's not that I tan—I never lie out in the sun—but because I walk in the sun for several hours each and every day, I seriously haven't been depressed for years. It's a relief.
