My Pristiq was increased on July 15. This morning, 9 days later, I got up and I am a new woman! The relief from deep depression is just awesome!

It means so much to me!
  • improving my relationship with Albert
  • no sex due to meds but right now that isn't necessary
  • more energy to keep the house cleaner
  • looking forward to making good progress in therapy with my depression not being an issue
  • willing to be more active which will help lessen the depression even more
  • willing to be more active which will help me get back to my weight loss program

I can't fully express how good I feel today. This morning I was asked to sing at church next Sunday morning and I said yes - and I'm really looking forward to that.

I hope and pray that this good feeling stays around for a long, long time.

I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart.  Have patience with me as I heal.
