It is so great to hear your success story! I can tell, just from your posts, that every day is getting better for you! Congratulations!

Re: the weight loss thing. I have lost only 3 pounds. I'm only 5'2" and 120 pounds, so 3 pounds feels pretty good to me. I would love to lose those proverbial last 10 pounds, but I haven't weighed 110 since the 5th grade! ha ha Anyhoo, I *have* noticed some loss of appetite, especially at night. I always eat a big breakfast, and then smaller meals as the day goes on. I am rarely hungry for dinner now, but I do make myself eat something. Dinner used to be my largest meal before Celexa, now it's the smallest, and maybe that accounts for the few pounds of weight coming off.

Here's a funny story -- I haven't told anyone, except my ex-boyfriend who is still a good friend of mine -- the Jerry Seinfeld/Elaine Benes syndrome -- that I'm on antidepressents. But I got my hair cut the other day, and as I walked into the salon my hairdresser, Kevin, says to me *Wow, things must be going well for you. Are you getting l--d?* We always talk a little trash with each other, and he knows I've been boyfriend-less for quite a while now. I replied no, but I started taking an anti-depressant and I feel great! And he said he noticed my voice was lighter and my eyes were happy. This blew me away, that somebody could actually tell this! Then he said *why didn't you try St. John's Wort first?* I said "been there, done that, for 3 months." He seemed surprised that it didn't work.

Anyway, people should be reading OUR THREAD for success stories, since so many poor folks in here do not seem to be winning their battles.

My best to you! Let's definitely check in with each other, my giggly, nature-loving, head-banging -- musically of course -- friend!
