So I'm going through the process of getting section 8 housing. Dropped of my paper work (application) at the housing department, went through the interview at the same time. Told I would be getting the voucher in about 3 weeks now. Then I just recently filled out an application for an apartment where my GF lives, gave the landlord a deposit...and boy-o-boy is this stuff stressful. The early move to get an apartment secured is to have a chance to live near my GF. Otherwise I'll wait and see what happens and manage it as it comes... I feel good about my ability to cope with whatever happens, clean-n-sober.

Aside from thinking its best to wait until I have the voucher in hand before I even think about looking for and moving into a new apartment...the prospect of moving from my managed care housing...is weird! But the chance I could live close to my GF is fantastic .

Usually if I miss a few doses, any change in how I feel would be delayed by a week or so. I dunno... the effect of Prozac is pretty subtle for me. Sometimes I'm not sure if it is even doing anything, alteast for my OCD symptoms. Are you sure you're not psyching yourself out, Ananda? Anyhow, I wouldn't think it would take as long to build up as when you first started taking it.

I am so enjoying my $300 battery...

Ananda

I went about a week without my depression meds. On about the third day without them I was feeling very anxious, jittery, short tempered and easily frustrated. My sleep patterns were way off too.

After I gotten a refill and was back on my regular dose I remember being back on track within a few days.

thanks zencat (supper big hug) I'm back on now and i feel some improvment today probably cause with my nighttime sleep med i actually got real sleep last night for the first time if 4 days.

Its odd, cause i still have the same problems and issues to deal with, it's just that without the medication those issues get twisted into some sorta crazy undealable overwhelming ....ahhhhhhh

Today they seem more just like the issues I have to deal with...less anxious and less of that "I'm henny penny and the sky is falling in" sorta mind set

Glad you're feeling better, Ananda.

Up early as usual... my treatment session yesterday went really well. The redundant paperwork and testing was tedious, but talking to the counselor there was great. We really didn't clash at all. If fact he showed interest in other venues of recovery, looked at and bookmarked websites (including SR), and said he would probably be "picking my brain", lol.

I get it. Medication lessens the anxiety and depression symptoms so I can concentrate on working through problems. Otherwise my though process are a jumble of entangled emotions and thoughts.

DK - Glad your therapist is a good match for you.

Hi everyone! Today is day 15 this time around and I'm feeling good. The week went by fast and I've been keeping up with my journaling, reading and meditation practice. I haven't gotten out of my apartment much other than going to work because it's been so freaking cold outside, but it's supposed to warm up starting tomorrow, so I will have to get out, walk around and get a little outdoor exercise.

Today I'm grateful for 15 days sober. I'm grateful for my calm, optimistic outlook. And I'm grateful for Soberrecovery.com and all you wonderful SR people.
