Time to Change

I have totally been avoiding the computer for the last few days. I have not turned on the laptop at home since the last time I posted. Avoidance is good for me.

I went to my therapy appointment on Friday and I was honest. I said that I have really been struggling and some thoughts about how I just don’t want to continue on anymore. It felt good to get it out. I have a med doctor appointment on Friday and we think it is a good idea that we reevaluate my medication. I have been on the cocktail of Prozac and 2 Wellbutrins for a while. Maybe it is time to change.

I went to the animal shelter today. I had taken my 6th grade nephew with me and we looked at cats. Since it was kitty clearance weekend and by Sunday afternoon most of the kittens were gone and I just could not decide between take a Mom and her daughter or two brothers. I wanted them all. So I left without any kitties. I will continue to think about it. I just was not ready.

How was your weekend?


  1. Jen, I'm really glad you are reaching out for help. Your readers are here for you, too!

    I can understand not being ready for another cat. You will know when the time is right.

  2. I'm glad therapy went well! Changing the meds can definitely be a good thing sometimes.

  3. I'm glad you were honest in therapy and I'm glad you're seeing your med doc.

  4. I'm proud of you Jen, for being honest with your therapist and telling (him/her?) how much you have been struggling. I know that is not an easy thing to do.

    Hang in there and keep fighting. You are so worth it.

    It is hard to make a decision about a pet. It's a really long time commitment and I don't blame you for wanting to think about it. Hopefully you'll come across just the right one for you soon.

    Hugs. : )

  5. I'm glad you had a good conversation with your therapist. I'm on Prozac, and used to be on Wellbutrin. I think they can be similar in their effects in some ways, but chemically they are very different, and they deal with different neurotransmitters so they might not result in the same effect, or at least, scientifically they're not supposed to result in exactly the same effect. I switched to Prozac because it can help with OCD, which I have as a secondary problem to Schizoaffective Disorder. I wish you the best of luck in finding the right cocktail that works for you at the right time.


I love your comments!
