Shut Up, Jerkbrain (Bored Already) — 7 Comments

  1. I think there’s a distinct difference between being “content”, as you are with your hobbies and family, versus being “happy”. I often find myself content with life inside my bubble but…It’s not genuine happiness.
    That’s when the meds need to be upped,just to make it over that little bit of hill to truly happy. Good luck.

    • Funnily enough, I’ve often differentiated in the exact same fashion. Take for example, one of the things that pushed me into the pit this week. My high school sweetheart apparently blocked me on Facebook, which hurt like fuck ’cause I thought we were friends (though if that’s what he wants to do, I respect it anyways). Now, I was happy with him, but never really content. So in the finest of teenaged fashions I fucked it up royally to try and get him to understand that we could be friends instead of partners… but yeah. Happy is generally the feeling I associate with the brief up periods of hypomania with the golden warmth and what not. I’m feeling that without the rest of the warmth, but otherwise would definitely call it content and leave it be. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Isn’t that the shits when you’re constantly on the verge of tears? I don’t love that feeling. I can cry at the drop of a hat. I cried when Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem! Gah! I hope you get your medication sorted and start the journey back up, my dear. BTW is that your daughter? She is beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m a postpartum nurse and I’ve noticed that my moms who deal with depression are on Zoloft during their pregnancy because it’s compatible with pregnancy. Usually after their pregnancy they get moved on to something a little stronger. Just thought I’d put that out there in case it could be of use to you.

    • Heh, no more kids for me. Husband and I know our limits! I ended up coming off both Zoloft and Seroquel because I wanted to home birth again, and there seemed to be some confusion as to whether or not they could do a suitable (to them) job of monitoring with the potential side effects of the latter. As for the former, the psych that I was seeing at the time felt that Zoloft was not a good choice for pregnancy. It makes me wonder if there’s a bit of a US/UK divide there, because everyone I talk to from the States who has a reason to know has said that doctors are fine with Zoloft in pregnancy.
