Yay! This site is working and so is my Celexa!

Posted by Shelley in Seattle on February 2, 1999, at 11:58:18

Glad to see we can share our ideas here once again :-) I like this site (and all of you who post here!) so much -- I feel the loss when it is not available!

And -- after a solid month, the Celexa has finally started working! I say this with trepidation, after reading pej's posts from last month ... but I feel like a truly different person. I wouldn't believe it if I weren't me!

Of course, even good things have their consequences. Aside from the mild-but-tolerable side effects, I have been feeling as though I have mental whiplash. I am grateful (and believe me, so are those around me!!) for the extremely favorable response I am having to this drug. But it is taking time for me to feel comfortable in my own skin again. It feels nice to feel 'even'. And I am getting used to not being such a misanthrope anymore. But it's going to take a bit of time before I am 'settled' into this new/old me.

My attitudes about a lot of things that were wrong with my life (and adding to the depression) have changed, too. I can only describe it as a good but weird feeling. I now feel very clear-headed, but not like a zombie. The difference is that now I can notice that I am dissatisfied or annoyed with a situation and change it or let it go, rather than ruminate over it the whole day.

I actually started feeling good about 10 days ago, but my incredulity that I could experience such a profound change so quickly coupled with the problems with this site delayed my sharing the good news with you.

I hope everyone has a great day!
