Better Living Through Chemistry

Went to the doc this morning; follow-up visit for a nagging shoulder.  Told the doc about the dark cloud that's been hanging around me.  Question and answer begins, followed by a serious discussion.  I walk out with medication.

Why didn't I do that sooner?

I went to the doctor and she told me I was suffering from depression! I didn't realize that I was depressed but she said that sometimes the level of seritonin (?) in the brain is not what it should be and that will cause depression! She put me on Lexapro and I feel LOTS better! I don't know if that is what you are suffering from or not but it seemed like I had a dark cloud hanging over me too! Take the medication! It's amazing how great you will start to feel! Hang in there! http://journals.aol.com/shayshaydc/Golfaholic

Good for you:)

Make sure to give it time to get into your system.
Sometimes up to a month. (I should know)


Happy Thanksgiving!

COMMENT ABOUT THE SHOULDER PAIN:  a friend just went in for tests for shoulder pain ... the doctor has ordered IMMEDIATE series of tests for lung cancer!  A spot on her lung showed up on the x-rays & CATscan.  Time is crucial!

When I was depressed the doc put me on Zoloff. It made me worse!
Good luck. Hope that dark cloud dissipates soon:)

I don't know about the Zoloft haters here, but the stuff has helped me tremendously!
Good luck and Happy Turkey Day!
With peace and love,

Hi! Just stopped by from a comment in another journal.  Please go to my site and click on AgelessXtra.  I call it my "joy juice"!  It's all natural, not chemical, and tastes good, so fun to drink!  I also have my story about how I found it in my entry titled ... Year of Crisis, God, and Oasis!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  
Wishing you the Best!

From time to time, everyone feels the need to speak with someone who can help to guide them through the stress and tumult associated with the ever-changing world we wake up in every day of our lives. Not everyone can afford professional therapy, and if you feel things are growing beyond your control, a priest or minister may not be the right person for you to speak with. They are not trained counselors, despite the sincerity of their convictions. There is an excellent alternative: life coaching. For the price of one session with a therapist, you will get written guidance addressing your specific needs, and 3 telephone sessions lasting approximately 45 minutes each. No phone charges to you, anywhere in the world. Find your true, inner peace. Life Coaching has helped thousands to find their center, and to not only approach their own existences with confidence, but to excel where they were once intimidated. Learn to love yourself, and live free from fear and apprehension.
