She’ll be coming around the mountain when she comes…

3 Apr


I went to see my doctor today, and had my Wellbutrin wish granted. I’ll start tomorrow, since as usual, the pharmacy needs to order them in. (sigh….)

Any reading I’ve done have stated that it has minimal affect on sexual function and weight gain, and that it’s been fairly good at moderating bipolar’s in one study. It can’t hurt. It’s also know to help stop compulsive behaviours, which I can use right now.

Celexa was good for my mood, but man. How can you have a close relationship with your partner when you don’t want them near you? How can you want to do anything when eating any food makes you gassy and explosive?

I weighed myself. Despite my pants being FAR too tight, and feeling bloated as all hell, I haven’t gained a pound in a month and a half. People have confirmed that I look bigger. So what the FUCK?!?!

So I’m crossing my fingers that this will work. I just want my body to do it’s own thing, instead of something else. It seems like anymore, I just end up taking more and more pills.

It’s enough to make me want to grab Rosalyn’s ‘Elmo Bankie” and crawl under the deck.

So, we’ll see. I’d like to get under 250, my weight when pregnancy with Vivian, sometime this summer. It just seems like everytime I start making progress, something messes it up.

Le sigh.

    Aw, I’m hoping this works out for you, or at least takes the edge off enough that your body starts to feel like your own again. That feeling of your body betraying you is so freaking itchy and terrible.
    If it makes ya feel better, I’m still working on putting together a box to send to you, which will probably make it there before the decade is up 🙂

    Although I cannot WAIT to send baby stuff to you. New baby to spoil! WOOT!

    Cool! As long as my doctor gives up the goods, we can be Wellbutrin buddies. lol

    Good luck with the Wellbutrin, Thor. You’ll get it sorted out for sure.

    I’ve (mostly) given up white flour and sugar and it’s making me feel a ton better. I’ve been losing my cravings to eat junk and am losing weight. I do remember being on Prozac and it defintely messing with my appetite, mostly in a bad way.

    It’s probably just bloated. If you start to pee like crazy on the new drugs, you’ll know you were just retaining. hahaha

    I didn’t find that you looked any bigger when I saw you, but… I didn’t measure you or nothing. hahaha 😉

    I am having “I feel fat” moments lately and the scale proves me wrong. Not that I MIND, but… I just see fat people in the mirror. It sucks monkey ass.
