    Even imperfect communication is better than no communication. Although I admit my first urge would be to smack the hubs if he said it looked like I was gaining weight! Hang in there.

    Man, what a long week. I am not in good shape mentally, emotionally or physically so I am grateful for the weekend.

    I have been very tired in the afternoons and that makes me bingey. I am going to add a protein shake back in the AM. I don't think that I am getting enough otherwise.

    I am very tearful tonight, In fact I had quite a sobbing jag in my car on the way home from the gym...but I gave myself a pep talk and made a list of things I need to do to make things better.

    Dont forget to make a column on that list about what is already good. There is plenty if you think about it. Focus on some positive chicka

    I agree that a gratitude list (perhaps daily or weekly?) would be good.

    I am curious: you mentioned getting off the Prozac. I believe you are one of the folks around here who had read The Mood Cure and tried 5-HTP. Correct me if I'm wrong. Did you feel any different on 5-HTP? If you have read it before, I would suggest a re-read or a scan of the symptoms list for the different types of depression. If you haven't, I suggest it!

    I missed that you quit prozac. Were you having problems with it? I am still taking it and I swear to goodness its taking the edge off the current issues I have.

    Yes, I went off Prozac about 10 days ago. I went on it in June to try and curb the binge problem. Yes, at 20 mg it made me feel better, but I was still bingeing. I tried 40 mg and it made me not care about anything. I felt like a zombie. I went back to 20 mg, but then I noticed that I was gaining weight. I went up 20 lbs from June to August. Even when I was able to string together 14 clean days, I never got back to my pre prozac weight.

    Am I depressed? Are some of these overwhelming feelings Prozac withdrawal? I don't know. Things are tough right now in my life. I will know better in a few days. TOM is ending and I hope to get a few solid days on plan.

    I have tried 5htp but I am not sure it helped. Maybe now that I have Prozac experience I will see the difference. I still have the Mood Cure book, which I will re read.

    Thank you ladies for your concern.

    Gratitude

    I have three wonderful children who love me.

    I have a partner who loves me and is a good man.

    I have a solid job that I enjoy and I work with people who are my beloved friends.

    I own a home and land in a beautiful place.

    I have every "thing" a person could possibly need and more.

    I have knowledge of a healthy path through MDA and lovely supportive friends to help me along the way.

    I have enjoyed two wonderful, gifted years since the day I should have died of pulmonary emboli.

    I believe in God and know that he loves me and is personally interested in my life.



    **It just hit me after re reading this list. All the things that I feel are "wrong" are transitory and I can take action to fix them.

    Excellent list. I was thinking of making a gratitude list last night, while I couldn't sleep. I'll probably do that today.

    My daughter, who is a ridiculously upbeat person, often says "that is such a first world problem" whenever someone complains about something. She picked this up after she went to Guatemala on a mission trip. It is basically a mantra for what you noticed about your gratitude list vs. your "what's wrong" list. Congrats on realizing you can take actions to correct the "wrong"

    p.s. I used to write a Thankfulness for the day, every day, not sure why I got out of the habit, but it was helpful to keep things in perspective and helped start the day well.
