I left my husband in November and since then I've had a fight to stay out of the pit. It is there, hovering at the edge of my mind like a ghost you can almost see if you move your head fast enough. I don't want to be depressed again. I'm taking Savella for my fibromyalgia, but my doctor said it was a pretty low dose so if I need more help to let him know. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that diet, exercise, SAM-e and keeping busy will help and keep me from having to take more antidepressants.
I moved into my new house in November and I've focused on keeping it clean and presentable. Sometimes it feels like a lost cause with two teens and my young adult son all intent on destroying it. But I won't allow them to do it. I want a house that people can visit without me feeling too embarrassed.
I'm working full time and considering taking night classes. Right now my company is about to split and there is a very real possibility that I may not have a job in a year. I'm thinking of taking a class to help me pass my pharmacy tech exam. After all, as I know, prescriptions will always be with us. I think we'll continue to need more, not cut backs in this area. So as I told my son, I'm done with software, I think I'll get into drugs!
