Re: Square dancing and Effexor Willow

Willow - The square dancing at least got me off of my butt and actually doing something. This Effexor is turning me into a "couch slug" (like a couch potato, but is able to roll over to sleep better). It does take some effort to initiate projects (mowing lawn, weeding garden, etc.), but once I get going I am okay.

This hasn't helped my karate. I am supposed to be preparing for my black belt test for next spring (believe me, that's not enough time under ordinary circumstances), but I will probably have to postpone it for a year.

Actually, although I feel as if I have the "brain-fog" that is talked about, but I find that it is not that hard to think through this fog; thoughts seem to come more effortlessly, than when I was depressed. I find now that if I don't try to think about something too hard, the answer I am looking for seems to come to me.

BTW - The weather for Stampede was HOT!! Three days in a row of +30 C to +35 C (about 200 F for you yankees). Try dancing with sweating old ladies in 90 F heat on cement and ashphalt, with absolutely no shade. You have one hand on her pulse (so you can watch for heat stroke) and at the same time you are trying to follow the caller, while you try to open your sweat-induced, stinging eyes.

This is made particularily worse by the daily pre-dance ritual of having (at least) 3 beer before 9:30am, go dance, and then replacing all the body water you lose with more beer. I do not like how I feel drinking alcohol with Effexor. I really don't seem to get drunk, only bloated and blah.
