I know I often say that I am losing my mind or going crazy or whatever when I am not feeling well or am stressed. But lately I have literally been losing my mind. My cognitive function is HORRIBLE lately. My pdoc switched me off my Zoloft and on to wellbutrin SR because she was concerned that the Zoloft wasn’t treating my depression effectively. I messed the switch up a little bit because I started tapering off the Zoloft but didn’t start the wellbutrin for a week later after I felt like crap and realized that I was supposed to up the wellbutrin as I was downing the Zoloft.

I have been doing not so well with the regular blogging. So here’s an update.
My sleep schedule is messed up. For whatever reason Monday night I could NOT sleep. Was tossing and turning and flitting in and out of sleep until 3 a.m. before I finally said “ENOUGH!” and got up.

He says, “I put it next to you so I could call you in a few minutes to make sure you were awake. I told you when I set it next to you.” …YEAH… I didn’t remember that at all.

My husband worries about me and calls me a hypochondriac because I will take the symptoms that I have and use a symptom checker (Web MD has a great one) and then I will be like….”well…It could be this (maybe hay fever or depression-duh!) or I could have THIS which is probably what it is (Multiple Sclerosis!!!)” (coz I’m a dramatist) No, seriously. that is what it came up with. Now, in all seriousness I know that I don’t have multiple sclerosis, but other possible options were hypothyroidism, etc. Which is totally believable even though I had all my blood work done 6 months ago (including thyroid test) because we were ruling out just that possibility.
