Mental health update

I know I just blogged, but I wanted to post an update on how my mental health has been lately. I’m currently going through the most stressful time in my life right now, and I think I’m handling it pretty well aside from occasional snappiness at people. I do admit that most days I want to just scream, but I think that’s normal for what I’m dealing with. I think the medications I’m on are working really well (for now). I’m on 300mg of Seroquel, and 20mg of Viibryd. I am experiencing some stomach issues that could be related to the Viibryd (that’s common) but it could also be the stress. I’ve also been walking every day and am taking multivitamins. I think those have really helped with the depression because I don’t think I’m really that depressed. If someone asked me if I was depressed, I’d answer “I don’t know”. Maybe that’s a good thing. Awhile ago I was so depressed that I couldn’t even shower or do anything. I’m back into a routine now, so that obviously is an improvement. I just wish the circumstances were different concerning the ongoing legal stuff and apartment stuff.

  1. It’s good to see things in an upward trend! :) You’re not alone when it comes to stressed or depressive times. Sometimes I want to scream at the world… Then I turn to blogging or posting on forums. :)

    I hope everything else gets better soon.
