One of the things my Dr did for me yesterday, was to change one of my prescriptions. I was on a very mild anti-depressant, it is fairly common to prescribe these to Breast cancer survivors. I didn't think I needed it, but, I would give it a try. Well, I certainly never felt like I was depressed, but I did notice a change. I am not as much of a cranky bitch and don't even get the occasional "woe is me" bouts. In fact, I am damned near perky! This is what they are changing...the new one has been found to help with the hot flashes - Odin knows I need help with those! My pharmacist, told me that these new ones work a bit differently, on the whatchamacallit, and to take them in the morning as they might cause sleeplessness. Great, I have such luck in that area already.

So I took one this morning, with 1/2 of the old one...yes, I have to taper off the old, while tapering onto the new. I really hope it was just an off day for me, one of those scattered days that you really don't get a lot accomplished, but it feels as if you have been running at 10,000 rpm, while in neutral. So, I had started thinking about a post for today, then I got distracted. Then I started to think about another post for today...this is what you are getting - me rambling on, but, at least I gave you sentences. Shit I hope this settles down otherwise I don't think I will be wanting to take these - I'll be a perky whirling dervish!


A friend made me go out walking with her in the cold Monday night and these are a couple of the photos I took along the way. As it was cold and I didn't have the tripod, they are a bit blurry, but they are the best of the shots.

House across from the complex, that did such a good job a Halloween.

Next block over, they filled the yard and fence and trees, too bad it is so blurry, those are nutcrackers with lights in them on the fence posts.

Love the colour of the blue tree, but the inadvertent streak off in the top right corner - looks like a UFO.

Have a good day all!

Reb, I sure hope you can adjust to the new meds and not be in that "place" you are right now. Frankly, I would love the extra energy, but the running-in-place aspect would drive me NUTS. I'd rather sit in place like I am now. (Not really - I'd rather have energy to actually DO things and then DO them!)

I hope you can adjust to the new meds, too, especially if they help with those hated hot flashes. Perhaps I need to start taking these... wonder if I can convince my doctor I am depressed. Nah, he'd never believe me!!

I sure hope you get things sorted out with the meds. Totally get the distraction thing.

I liked the "ufo" pic.

Reb said...

Kcinnova, I hope so too. I would actually appreciate the energy, but not at the price of being scattered.

Sis, I really hope they help with the hot flashes. Dr.s these days will give you almost anything you ask for - just to move on to the next money maker.

Leah, I have enough distraction in my life without chemical help. Thanks, I like that one too.

Hopefully it's just a transitional phase. But perky and scattered might be an improvement over blah and flashy.. hot flashy that is.

Reb said...

Thanks Hilary, it might at that. ;)

something tells me that as cold as it is here, Edmonton is a LOT colder!

Gary, it probably is, but we are supposed to warm up near the end of the week.
