Long holiday weekends mess up my sense of time -- it doesn't matter that I rarely do anything worthy of note; they still leave me vaguely out of kilter. I decided that instead of of just dismissing the antidepressant the doc gave out of hand, given my past experience, that I would be a good little old gal and give 'em the old school try. So I took the required dose before I went to bed and slept 9 hours straight -- which for me is rather long. Bet y'all are thinkin' 'Great! She finally got some good sleep!' and y'all would be wrong. I was groggy and disoriented alllllllllllll day. I felt bad about it, too, 'cause Bryce and Gracie came over and I really didn't feel well and was teetering on the edge of an anxiety attack most of the day. I was truly frightened.
Needless to say, I didn't take it again last night and was just fine today and even did a few errands and cheered Gracie on as she rode her bike for me. I swear that 60% of the women I know over 50 are taking anti-depressants and about half of the prolly don't need them. I don't need them either with the reactions I get from most of them. And no, I'm not wildly thrilled with my life but I just have to find something that will keep me busy and engaged on a limited income -- and that's a challenge since I'm pretty burnt out on volunteer work right now and would rather take a step back and recharge for the 2012 elections which makes sense to me. It's just a matter of finding the right thing. I'll be on the phone to the doc bright and early. And no, I don't want another damn scrip, I'm just letting her know how it worked.
And oh yeah, I have another petition for y'all to sign here and pass it on, Justice Clarence Thomas is heinously violating 'conflict of interest' rules and accepting money from the wrong people. (Can you day 'Koch'? I knew you could.)
Glad y'all enjoyed Jimmy Cagney -- he's an all-time favorite of mine, too! Here's four minutes of fun with Jimmy and one of the best choreographed videos I've ever seen! It's a guaranteed grin!
The fireworks that have been exploding for the past few hours seem to be over so I can watch my Steve McQueen film festival in peace -- God knows "Bullitt" and "Papillon" require quiet to savor their artistry -- right? LOL
Hope y'all had a great holiday!!!!!!!!!!
