A few thoughts to ponder for me 01-24-2005 - 09:03 PM
I am back to my 'depression sleeping', being tired all day even though I sleep like a log all night, maybe I will start going to bed at 7pm again!!

I am back to binge eating and woohoo put on 15 lbs in less than a week! Just what i really wanted.

Life is no longer careening out of my control. Somehow I have to grab the wheel again and start driving. Feeling sorry for me isnt going to help me out at all. Get up, dust off my knees and try again.

My doctor had faith in me, my DH has faith in me, and my DS has faith in me. They are all purty darned smart men, so maybe they know something I dont??

AS I would say to my son...."Suck it up, sweetcheeks"...Might be time to follow my own advice, pathetic as it may be...lol

I think maybe my road is going to stop having switchbacks, and hills and valleys. Maybe it will level out and not make such darned sharp turns...Maybe the withdrawals are almost over. I almost, almost, felt human today....Did i mention it was almost??

Time for bed, it is 10pm and tomorrow I will be tired again. Maybe I will even try out my trainer tomorrow....

Marathon sleeping, I used to wish I could just go to sleep and wake up when it was all over!! whatever 'it' was. Never seemed to work for me either, but boy I can relate!
Hang in there, Kat, the tone of this post is already showing a better frame of 'mind'

Mei, I had to read a couple of your replies twice...I completley forgot I was quitting, rofl....I am off all meds, including my Effexor, so the down in the dumps was withdrawal from the meds...Depression set in big time and I am struggling through it. I will reread all these posts when I do quit tho!! Thanks....

Stephanie, I am feeling much better. I think the ground has somewhat settled under me. I personally thought 'well havent been on them long, not taking much, how hard can it be!!" Well it was not for wimps I tell ya.....But I feel better, almost as if I can live today and be fairly happy!!Thank you....

It seems like you might be seeing a fleck of light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes we have to give into our self-pity and engage ourselves, just get it out of our systems! I know I have. Then something miraculous happens and we realize we want something better for ourselves.

You have fought many demons. Going off the cigarettes and the pain meds have been a lot to handle. But, you've done it! Not many people have that kind of willpower. Do you realize how strong you are? Worry about the weight another time. One thing at a time. But, calling the trainer sounds great. Good for you! You go girl! You've got my vote!
