Deep Thoughts

Do you ever feel like you're not the main character in your own story, or is it just me?

These are the things that I stay up late to think about when I've abruptly gone off of my Zoloft without being under my doctor's supervision*. Bad Amy! Bad! No cookie!!

One would think that after the half-dozen times (give or take) that I've done this to myself, I'd freakin' know better.

In other news, I went and saw this guy tonight:



with Karen and Tammy, on Barb's recommendation. Barb was right, I really liked his show. I'm not too sure that Karen and Tammy did, but Karen's pregnant and she got to eat deep fried pickles**, so it couldn't have been too bad.

This is a lot more representative of his style:



...and here's an extremely brief video of him singing (elsewhere) with a girl I know:



...and now that I look at it, I think that the same girl, Tinea, might've been there tonight singing "Satellite" with him... But although her voice sounded familiar, she was on the other side of the room so I didn't get a good look or a chance to see if it was here - Barbara Dahling, can you confirm or deny?

I need to keep doing stuff like this, stuff that reminds me of who I was and what I was like B.C.*** Because seriously, sometimes I feel like I'm losing myself.

Keep an eye on me, ok?



* See, I went up to Grammaland the weekend before the wedding, and I forgot my prescription, so I didn't take it Saturday, then totally forgot to take it Sunday and Monday, and by then I was like, "Well, I'm fine, who needs it?" and I rode the wedding wave up through Monday of this week, but now things are starting to slow back down to a normal pace, and I think I'm off my nut again. Damnit. So, do I ride it out and figure that I'll be better in a couple weeks (this too shall pass?) or do I go back on it so I don't get worse?

**You heard me.

Go back on the Zoloft!!! You should not stop cold turkey, turkey! It needs to be tapered down just as it was tapered up.

I think you should go back on it, I imagine you'll only feel worse and worse.

I agree you do have to take time for yourself, it helps you be a better mommy when you take time to enjoy non-mommy pursuits.

AMY! Zoloft! Now!!

You're off your nut or you wouldn't even be asking that question, therefore I am shouting to make sure the response sinks in.

Now! Go! Pop the freakin' pill!

Google "Zoloft" and "half life." Then Google "Zoloft" and "withdrawal."

I agree with Pops on this one. You shouldn't be stopping cold turkey.

I am glad you enjoyed the show my dear. I think he is awesome, I just love his live performances. I don't think it was Tinea singing with him though. I will double check with her though. Love you!
