A Quick Note

After last week, I didn't want to disappear without letting people know I'm ok.

I will be gone from Wednesday through Sunday, so I probably won't be posting or checking my email until Monday (I may be on Twitter, because I'll have my phone with me).

I talked to my doctor. He recommended meds, but said it was up to me, so I decided to hold off for now.  I think I'll be alright as long as I prioritize getting enough sleep and taking care of myself. I see him again in a few weeks and, if things get bad again before then, I'll probably go on something. I'm still hesitant because I did pretty good on Prozac before, but Zoloft really messed me up when I tried it. We'd go with Prozac this time around, but I'm still skittish about taking anything.

I think just working on staying active and getting rest will help a lot, because the bad days seem to be when I'm going on 2-3 days with little or no sleep. It's just hard to get it, because it feels like night time is the only time I really have to myself anymore, and I don't want to "waste" it by sleeping.

  1. Sleep is not a waste of time. Sleep. You need sleep. I found your blog from The Muser. I was extremely close to doing what you did and I know a lot of it was because of sleep deprivation. I had severe PPD/PPA and a baby who wouldn't eat or sleep. Truthfully the only thing that stopped me was that I knew my life insurance policy wouldn't pay out on a suicide. It's hard. It effing sucks. Having a spouse that gets pissed instead of being supportive is enough to push you over the edge. I've been there too. I can't say anything to make you feel better..but I can tell you I know how you feel(felt). I'm praying for you....
