Desperate Times

by Aimee on April 30, 2009

call for desperate measures. Or some such.

First, before I get into that, I would like to thank Erin! If you notice, I have a new layout theme and stuffs – Erin did all of that for me. She is also working on getting the podcast up and running again. We loves us some Erin. I am going to stay at Erin’s during TNNA this year in June, so while I will miss her at MDS&W this year, at least I get to see her soon! Erin does a little bit of freelance work on blogs and webstuffs (she is going to help me with a couple projects) so if you have something stumping you – give her a shout – she works pretty cheap while her finance is laid off and she wants to buy a spinning wheel.

Oh and since I started writing this – she got the podcast to work!!! Yes, people, the podcast – which means I will start podcasting again. For now you can access past episodes here and next week I will work on iTunes getting updated again! I have episodes 1-14 up and I will have the rest up later tonight or tomorrow!

OK – so now to the downer. I had to go back on meds. I am not back on Cymbalta, but I am on something else. I don’t consider myself a particularly angry person at all – in fact, I get pissed off like most people and then get over it, like most people. But every.little.thing. was setting me into a rage and that just isn’t me. never has been. So last Wed after a parti bad incident, I called and back to the doc I went, crying my little eyes out. We talked and we are trying something else. I went off Cymbalta because I felt like I just wasn’t being helped on it – apparently the many years on it either made me forget or just changed my brain enough that by day 16 totally off, I was toast.


At least Rozz still loves me, though.

I’m so glad to hear that I’ll be able to hear you again on my constant companion–the ipod. I’m sorry to hear about the meds, but, sometimes you’ve just gotta do what you’ve gotta do. I had to get on some a few years ago because I kept feeling like I was about to have a heart/panic attack (ten o’clock at night, kids in bed, watching TV, KNITTING???!!!! WTH?? What did I have to panic about?) It’s made a world of difference (and my kitties still love me too!)
Glad you’re back!!

I love the new look – but, then, I love pink. The meds are as necessary (to me, too) as insulin would be to a diabetic. I’m glad you’re going to be feeling better once they kick in again.

the downer would be if there wasn’t something to help.. I too considered going off meds. and then thought hmmmmm maybe better to leave well enough alone.
Take care of yourself! I love the new look.

YAY! I didn’t get to check out your podcasts before, so I look forward to being able to listen.

I still love you! I am glad you are pleased with the layout and hooray for getting those podcasts to work! They work going to work today come hell or high water ;) I can’t wait to see you in June!

Some people wear glasses and some of us take meds. Just stuff we need to be our wonderful real selves. You can find the right cocktail and congrats for calling the doc.

I love the new blog, by the way.
And glad you’re back to “normal”. hehe

Will definitely be keeping an eye out for new podcasts. Hope you are feeling better soon!

It is always amazing to me how many of us are on meds just because of everyday life….
