Hurray for Prozac

Prozac finally kicked in!! Took about a week and a half.  Finally, my sense of humor is back.  I'm also 5 days in to quitting smoking again.  Craziness brought me 2 cartons of cigarettes and 10 of the 20 lbs I had lost.  I hate my brain!  On the bright side, Prozac works for me, and it's a generic med that's easy to find.  If this happens when I'm on the road, it will be an easy and inexpensive fix. 

I was doing my countdown to departure 4 days ago, during a meeting at work.  I've been saying "in 2 years" since I started my planning.  Now, I'm < 2 years (21 months) from departure!! 

I have a new obsession.  I'm not admitting this to anyone else except blogland.  I can't believe I indulged in this guilty pleasure.  I actually purchased the live feed for Big Brother 12.  I'm so nosey and I love watching people interact, it's just made for me.

Hope everyone is well.  I've got to catch up on the blogs I follow during my next days off.  Working today and tomorrow. 

Grateful for:
  • Psychiatric drugs that help keep my brain in line. 
  • Freedom to live my life in an RV if I want to
  • 2 crazy dogs that make me smile every day
  • Nicotine lozenges so I can quit smoking
  • Support I have in blogland
Take care and be gentle with each other.

I'm so glad you're doing well, and that the meds are kicking in! You're doing great! Now, don't you worry about your guilty pleasure :) I watched every season until this one, and would have LOVED to see what those fools did 24/7. It's just fun!

Thanks for following, you probably won't need the Prozac once you are out on the road. It seems to me that it is a mind altering lifestyle (for the better of course). I hope that it happens for me sooner than later and for you on your schedule.

I was on Prozac for several years. During that time I learned how to deal with "myself." I had a horrible doctor and had to do any therapy n my own. I decided when it was time to get off and now I think I'm quite OK!

Good luck, and remember you can always e-mail me on the side if you need any support the bloggers or your other connections can't give.

PS: I think they should put it into the water supply!
