7 Quotes of Encouragement

Reblogged from lossesaregood.com


I’m exhausted from working all day! My feet hurt, and I am hungry.

No, I won’t go the “easy” route. I didn’t pick up a burger on the way home. I’m having tuna with a side of chopped cucumber, some sliced tomato, and crunchy red apple. It sounds tasty, AND I won’t beat myself up about eating something high calorie in a moment of fatigue.

So, I hope you are also hanging in there on those days you find yourself tired and hungry. Stay the course. You can do it, too!

“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea.

Fluoxetine, Generic Prozac. AWFUL For Me!

Lord help me, today is day two (over 48 hrs, actually) since I took my first generic Prozac. Doc changed my antidepressant – convieniently right here at finals time. I’ve been dizzy, super light-headed, and very tired for two days straight. I managed a window of time to drive to and from school today. That’s it. I’m so dizzy that I’m nauseated. How am I supposed to embalm tomorrow afternoon if I’m swaying and swimming?

I won’t take the Fluoxetine tonight! Anything has to be better than feeling this way.

I may just get myself off of ALL meds. I mean, it’s worth a try. I’ve been on antidepressnats and Rx sleep-aids for several years. Hmmm, dunno. As long as I keep my doctor informed, I guess.

Anyone have experience with this particular med?
