[7 days]

Well, I have been taking my medication for a full week now. I am down 11lbs in 7 days (which is nice) and all of the things that bothered me about the medication are starting to taper off, as I hoped they would. I am no longer yawning like I was and I am sleeping much more soundly. I no longer feel restless or fuzzy, but I am still sweating (constantly!) I attribute that to the fact that I am moving around more and that I am much more active.

I had no idea how much I have been dragging since Emery was born. In the last week I have played more with my kids, laughed more, felt more positively about myself, and just felt BETTER in general than I have felt in a really long time!! I am starting to become aware that I was living in a fog... and that maybe I really was struggling with depression and didnt realize how much of an effect it was having on my daily life.

I am really happy with where I am... TODAY. I am taking one day at a time.
