I'm doing better, still with an occasional bad day or bad moments during my day. I have been seeing an improvement in how I feel towards my DH the past few weeks, which is awesome! It makes me so happy to feel the urge to hug him, kiss him and cuddle with him. I haven't felt that in over 3 years, so it's a relief to see it finally coming back. When I first started the medication, I felt better but that is one thing that didn't improve right away.
We're getting ready for vacation tomorrow so I've been feeling a little overwhelmed with everything I have to do. I've been exercising regularly which has really helped with my mood and my energy level. I started exercising both for that benefit and to help lose weight and I've only lost about 5lbs and I've stalled. It's been frustrating because I still have a lot to lose (about 20lbs to be at my ideal weight) and I'm doing everything I should and it's just not coming off. I know a side effect of depression medication is weight gain and I have a feeling that's why I've stopped losing (and it's been a slow weight loss to start with, those 5lbs were lost over 2 months). I'm just tryign to think positive and remember that the exercise is probably keeping me from gaining weight, so not losing is better than gaining!
How are you doing lately Jessi?
