Music Monday: Moving Right Along

I mentioned a few weeks ago how my therapist wanted me to consider going back on medication for my depression. I thought about what she said, that since I've been depressed off and on (mostly on) for over twenty years the root cause is probably a chemical imbalance that lifestyle changes alone won't take care of. She might be right. Lord knows I've had trouble keeping any momentum going even with things I love to do, so I talked to my doctor and started Zoloft Friday.

I had some nausea and dizziness over the weekend, luckily I think that was just my body getting used to it because those symptoms were gone today. It'll take a while for it to really kick in, but I'm hoping that knowing the medicine is there to support me will help me get a move on and keep going. Wish me luck!

Now, let's do some music!

Ya know, with a post title of "Moving right along," I was expecting something about muppets (just saying).

Here's to your bravery in giving mood meds a try. I still go back and forth on that front.

Good for you! I started Zoloft when I was dealing with my post partum anxiety and I stay on it to help with the lingering anxiety and my PMDD. It has helped so much. They can take my Zoloft out of my cold, dead hands.

Jon: I do like a good Muppet...

Jeri: Well,after four years off the stuff with wildly fluctuating moods I figured my doc may be right. Plus, giving it another try can't hurt.

Tracey: That sounds like a recommendation!
