This is my blog.
This is a new experience for me; I’ve never even kept a diary before. So why now? Because I need a place to off-load, record a journey, and if others find it interesting or even helpful then so much the better.
I’m starting today because today is the day I start taking anti-depressants. I’ve been avoiding them for years but no more. I need to take back control of my life and to do that I need to have a clear head and I haven’t had one of those in years.
I didn’t want to take ADs because of the stories you hear about side-effects and people being on them for years. My ex-husband was on Prozac and Temazepam for a while and that was awful for both of us; but I don’t have either of those. I have a low dosage (10 mg) of some little white pills called citalopram. I hope they work…
