Waiting for side effects

I didn't get much sleep - looks like the new medication may be just as bad as the last one. It's early yet, so I can't really tell, but if things get any worse or persist after the weekend, I think I can call SSRIs a failed experiment altogether. We couldn't even round up three Bridge players for lunch, but Paul and I gave Chinese Auction a try, and it was definitely an interesting experience. It's fun when you have to strategize based on where cards are as well as which cards they are, and when you can only see half of your cards (and half of the opponent's cards) when you bid. I got a problem at the start of the work day to look at when I had the time - I figured out what it was as soon as I saw it in action and had a fix for it shortly after that. I'm very good at my job.

May I ask which SSRIs they've tried you on? I didn't have any luck and was quite miserable until I got on Effexor earlier this year and it's a serotonin and norepinephrine reputake inhibitor rather than a straight SSRI.

It was Celexa first, and now it's Lexapro. Thanks for the tip on Effexor - I'll mention it to my doctor if Lexapro doesn't work.

Page Summary


Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
