So, before I do anything else, I think it's time for me to take a moment and stop and express my deep appreciation for everyone who has helped me get to where I am now in my education.
Click for a long list of thank yous )
I met with my Psychiatrist today for the first time in months (since I sat out of school Fall Quarter, I wasn't eligible to see her).

She and I agreed to keep me on the Fluoxetine, instead of putting me through another med change by switching back to Zoloft (eek! That last switch was HELL, as those of you who read my journal know!), but we did up the dosage from 60mg to 80mg per day. I'm fine with that, though I just wish the Prozac wasn't killing my sex drive, with a new boyfriend and all...

She also wants to put me on ADHD medication, Vyvanse, which is an Adderall product... BUT... she can't try me out on it until I get my blood pressure back down. It was 150/88 today, which is high for me, though my weight seems to be holding steady at 386. Once I get it back down to 135/85, she'll give me a free month's worth of Vyvanse. AND, after that first month, if it looks like it's working well for me, I'll need to find a way to cough up $150/month. *cough*
