Poet-
Did you take the day off? if so how did it go??
great idea to do the water aerobics...that sounds like a great exercise program

i know what you mean about not wanting to up the meds...i always struggle with whether or not to up my lexapro..im only on 10 mg...my girlfriend is on 20 mg so i know i could go up if need be..but i have a really hard time adjusting to the meds in the first place, so i guess i just figure i would rather not up the meds..i like to keep that option as a safety valve in case i really really need it...helps to know that the option is still there if i need it
