I have a comemorative John Candy stamp taped to my monitor

Can you tell how interesting my job is?  I also have a funny quote about hotdog fingers from The Office stuck to my monitor to make me laugh when I’ve got some lull time.  Which I have a lot of, because when your organization fires the Exectutive Director and doesn’t hire a new one, somehow the half of your job that was called, “Executive Assistant” just seems to, oh…dissapear.  Go figure, right?  At least now I can use all this free time to take up what I secretly love: BIG GAME HUNTING.  That, or maybe sword-fighting.

I have to say a HUGE thank you to all of the ladies who commented on my last post.  Though I know I am not alone in this medication battle, it’s nice to know some people, at least in semi-real life, who are in the same kind of boat.

So far I’d say I am actually feeling okay minus the meds.  I am going onto the regime of taking 35mg once a day, then skipping a day, which to me is terrifying because Effexor gives you the WWD’s (world’s worst dreams).  Like we’re talking watching someone take a rusty scissor blade to a guy’s mouth and cutting his face open like a puppet from Ballooner Landing.  And if you don’t know what Ballooner Landing is, that’s good, because those puppets were fucking terrifying.  I also know someone who hit the host’s grandkid in the face with a baseball bat.  That’s right, I know a tough bunch of people out here.  It’s pretty hardcore.

It’s been a LOT easier to get out of bed in the morning, and I don’t want to nap immediately when I get home, which is good, because I have to do things like eat and engage Steve in conversation, and you know, play with my dogs.  Napping really cuts into my living time.  Geez!

I’m not feeling quite as sad.  I am just bummed because my job is totally poops right now.  I mean, it’s hella easy, but easy doesn’t make it fun.  You try sitting around at your desk for eight hours a day looking busy!  Wait, you’re probably doing that right now.  Ah yes…we’re all in this together.

I was going to take a minute and talk about the meds that the doctor I saw suggested I try, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what it was called.  She said something about it being good for people who are trying to quit smoking.  Which has nothing to do with depression OR anxiety, which made me wonder how this doctor got a license…hmmmm.  I know it wasn’t Xanax, and I haven’t been able to find another medication that sounded like it, but in our conversation I suggested Zoloft for two reasons:

1) I’ve heard people have had really good experiences with it (ie: Dooce!)

2) The cute little depressed rock in the commercial.

Leave it to advertising to make me say, “awwww, that rock is so sad!  It’s not even enjoying that little butterfly anymore!” when really the rock should be fucking stoked that it’s a rock and is somehow ALIVE.

I don’t really know how exactly to go about choosing another medication, really.  I mean, I’d go on doctor’s advice, but I don’t know this doctor, and she was pretty open to suggestions.  Maybe she can perscribe a gun full of rays of sunshine?  I am a genius.

    I’ve tried all of them and still pretty much live in the pits. Right now I’m on Lexapro and Depakote ER. The Lexapro is once a day, and the Depakote is three times a day. I’ve been on the combination for probably a year now. It’s the closest I’ve gotten to working. It’s also the one that requires me to nap in the evenings. I’ve gotten used to it, though, as it’s better than sitting around completely in dispair.

    The drug you are trying to remember is Wellbutrin. It goes under the name Zyban for smoking cessation. My doctor also mentioned it since I want to quit smoking. Wellbutrin didn’t help on any front, so that’s why I’m on Lexapro now.

    Here are a couple of links about it (just to show your doctor isn’t completely wrong.. LOL):

    From 1997: http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9710/22/smoking.depression/index.html
    From 1999: http://no-smoking.org/june99/06-29-99-5.html

    Was it Chantix?

    I love the sad little rock too.

  3. 3 La January 8, 2008 at 10:44 am

    I think Zyban is a combo smoking cessation and anti-depressant, but I haven’t heard much about it. As far as picking the right meds for you? It’s really trial and error. My ex was on three different ones before it made a difference. Luckily, Zoloft worked right off the bat for me.

    Looks like that party Rocks

    no?

    crap.

    I didn’t expect such a Rocky reception…

    Those Zoloft ads are adorable lol.

    This might help you choose: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSRI
    It’s a Wiki site with all the different SSRI drugs.

    And here’s what my friend the Wiki has to say about Zyban (Bupropion):

    Good luck!

    HAHA, oh Steve, you are great.

  8. 9 ultratoast January 8, 2008 at 11:18 am

    I totally agree about the rock. The fact that it is the first cognative geode in known history should make the thing want to do backflips and get a book deal.

  9. 10 Christine & Giggs January 8, 2008 at 11:26 am

    Have you seen a naturopath? Maybe you’re vitamin deficient or something?

    I went on meds my last year of university. I was BURNT OUT after five years of school and working three jobs. I thought I had mono, but my blood work came back fine, so my doc put me on Effexor. It got me through but I wish I never took it, it was so hard to get off of! Are you getting the tingly lip electric pulse feelings?

  10. 11 Goodboy Norman Featherstone January 8, 2008 at 2:45 pm

    Oh those commercials were great. Woman was at her lowest mental state when those commercials started airing, and she would mutter things under her breath about that “effing rock” and why it gets to be so happy when it’s just an “effing rock.” LOL!

  11. 12 doozy January 8, 2008 at 2:57 pm

    Christine: I tried a few different natural options before I went to hard meds. I tried the suggestion of my doctor to take fish oil pills and see if that worked. It seems that it works really well…at making me barf. A lot.

    I also try to exercise regularly as well, but I still get bummed out. Le poop.

  12. 13 Michelle January 9, 2008 at 7:48 am

    I think Wellbutrin (spelling?) is also one that is supposed to help with smoking. Good luck with the changes and I hope for your sake those horrible dreams stop. That just sounds terrible, I have nightmares like once a month maybe and that is plenty! I can’t imagine having them all the time.
