Been Almost a Week

Dear readers, I know it's been almost a week since I last wrote and I'm sorry. I'm going through a really rough time in my life right now and can't think of anything to blog about. You certainlyImage hosted by Photobucket.com don't want to hear how weaning off my meds brought me to a sniveling bundle of nerves that can't hold a conversation due to emotional fluctuations that don't know if they want to cry, laugh or scream, so sometimes they do all 3 at the same time. Went to the doctors today and left with orders to start back on meds immediately and follow-up in 2 weeks. I only wanted to see if I'm going to have to take these long term. I've been on it for 3 years now. Don't you think things would've improved by now? I know I'm a little slow but jeez.....

Ro over at ciaomybella is doing a new look for my blog. This was my Happy Mothers Day gift to myself....a new blog template just for me and my Deerledge. Did you know that Deerledge is the name of my home? I think it has a nice sound to it. Our home is built on ledge and the town's most active deer crossing is right through our backyard....thus Deerledge.

I'm so sorry you've been having a rough time, Sheri. Hang in there...adjusting meds is extremely difficult and taxing.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new blog template!
Hugs to you, girl.

You get as bored as I do with the same page day after day. But I am teaching myself html, so hopefully one day I will be able to build my own template.

I always thought deerledge was part of Gary's hunter side. Uh, learn something new everyday.

Chin up the meds aren't that bad, at least when you take them you don't have to go to bed at night and wonder what kind of mood you will be in when you wake up. LOL

Later

ps. check out the new look of my photo site.

Hang in there, it will get better. Stay on the meds as long as they make you feel better, more level. I can't make anything better but I'm always willing to listen...anytime.
PMS....me too GRRRRRRRR!

Sheri, I'm sorry you're feeling shitty. Email me anytime you need to talk. I know we haven't "met" but I like everything I've read about you, and I'm on meds too, so I know how it feels. When I'm not taking them I am more of a bitch than usual, and get so afraid that I want to stay in my bed in the dark forever. There's nothing wrong with needing the medication. Be well, blogging friend.

Hang in there, Sheri. I have been on "brain candy" for 10 years and am only now starting to think aboug going off of it. Part of the problem is when you are having depression, anxiety, etc. the medical professional's goal is to get you "stabilized" and then once you are stabilzed, they send you on your way. They never help you root out the causes of your problem, only treat the symptoms. Good luck, hun!

Oh how I've been there Sheri. Hang in there and things will work out. I'm not much for taking meds but if they help you to cope with life why knock it! At least you aren't a raving drunk or half burned out on crack...or at least you don't seem that type of a person. Meds can do crazy things to you and when you go off it's 100x worse for you. Always remember that if it gets too crazy for you, just take yourself back to the first thing in life...BREATHING! Deep cleansing breaths do wonders in this fast paced crazed out world.
I love the different looks you put in your blog...I'd love to learn how to do some of them...Like the "feeling" partr in the column on the left and "Thought for Now". Is it too difficult to achieve? You can email me if you'd like...tjkeri@gwi.net...This is Julie and I'm Melody's sister in-law. I love your posts and read them often...keep it up...

Sheri, I'm sorry you were having such a rough time lately.

Hope everything evens out soon for you. I know those choppy emotional seas SUCK big time.

Gina in N'Awlins said...

Girly - I am NEVER getting off of MY meds! Seriously - a pill a day makes me feel "normal" and so be it . . . ((((((((HUGS))))))))

Spirit Of Owl said...

I'm quite late to comment here, but I've just read it. Course, now I wish I'd read it at the time! :}

At least I'm glad to discover more and more of my fellow bloggers are happy pill poppers too. Maybe we should have a big pill bowl on the side, like a pretzil bowl or something, and grab a handful every now and then when we get the urge. Whadya say?

;) Hope you're feeling better. Best wishes to you, and since now your template has arrived, I can tell you I think it's lush.

I'm also massively jealous of your deer crossing, but I'll have to get over it... :D
