I'm decreasing the Paxil in preparation for Wellbutrin. I think it's making me sleepy.

I have to clean the house in preparation for the family coming over on the 4th. Also have a bunch more research to do for the candidate. And so very tired.

I wonder if I go to bed early, if I'll be awake tomorrow.

I LOVED Wellbutrin! It energized me and completely banished my anxiety. I had a HUGE bad side effect though. My tongue seeped blood! I had to get off it fast.

Wow! Everything I've read says it increases anxiety. Hey, if it gets rid of it, awesome!

I might even put up with a bloody tongue for that.

I was seeing a psychologist once a week back then as well, so perhaps my anxiety was treated by her and had nothing to do with the medicine. My situation was not chemical but situational, so I only needed the meds for a short while. Sometimes the world can fall in on you so fast that you think you're dying.

My life's philosophy: It's not easy to be happy. If it was, we wouldn't need to strive so mightily for it every day, and would never learn to appreciate it.

Wellbutrin! YAY Wellbutrin. I *heart* it so much. Between that and my Cymbalta, I'm a happy camper. (Plus my new and exciting blue Synthroid pills.)

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and the Wellbutrin. Also, re: thyroid--I know you said you need insurance to get it properly treated, but is there any way you could just get the bloodwork done, just to *see* if you need it adjusted? That way at least you'd know, and in the meanwhile could take selenium and evening primrose oil supplements and eat selenium-high foods and stuff to boost it as much as possible. . .

Have you seen what I've been posting about corn allergies? It fills me with woe. :( A complete list of corn-free foods and household products takes up less than 8 pages in MS Word. But I'm gonna try, see if completely cutting out corn makes me all better. :)
