Dammit, I really really wanted not to miss it. But I missed it anyway. My last journal entry was my 1,000th.

Which makes this my

1,001st!



Woot!

Anyway. About my brain being different...

Fifth day on Lexapro. My first day at 7.5 mg, a dosage I made up cuz I felt like it. Tomorrow will be 7.5 mg too.

I'm finding it easier to be assertive without being aggressive. It's much easier for me to find my own motivation, do what I want to do, which means when I ask other people to come along, it's more authentic. I'm finding it easier to look myself in the eye.

I'm finding it more difficult to concentrate, actually, my attention span has diminished. I think I'm just more responsive to my own feelings of boredom. I stopped the movie halfway, I put the book down midchapter. Nothing ADD, but it's not my style to give up on a story like that.

Still working with the anxiety issues, they're easing but I hope they'll get easier. My depression was much easier at 5 mg, but the medication seems to be bearing out my doctor's diagnosis: my anxiety issues are more serious than my depression issues.

Hrm, I think that's the first time I earned the "Listening to Lexapro" title in the original "Listening to Prozac" sense, and I didn't even title this entry the same way. Ah, life's little ironies.

anxiety?

I never have thought of you as the anxiety-ridden kinda person. It surprises me everytime you mention it. Maybe the next time we meet up, we can talk more about it! I hope that the meds will make a difference in the way you need it to. Thanks for posting about this. Lots of hugs to you!

Re: anxiety?

Yeah, I'm working on the whole "showing what I feel" thing in therapy.

Call me, I want to fill your brain with information.
