Dealing with Feeling Down

Antepartum Depression

In my last pregnancy update, I talked about how I was feeling pretty down. I’m tired and feel a bit underappreciated, and everything as just started to really get to me. Even with my medication, things are tough for me right now. The thing is, not many people talk about antepartum depression. There’s this idea …

Drinking Too Much Water?!

You know this. Water is so important, for so many reasons. But are you drinking enough? Or are you drinking too much? While you can drink as much as you want, within reason, of course, the idea that every person needs eight glasses a day is not accurate and if you are stressing yourself over …

Eating Disorders & Pregnancy Weight

Eating Disorders and Pregnancy Weight

Eating disorders. This has been the hardest thing to deal with in my pregnancy so far. As a former binge eater, it was really easy to fall back into old habits. I could justify them with the idea that I’m no longer on a diet. The reality is that more than 99% of women who …

Depression, Eating Disorders, Medication and Pregnancy

Since I found out that I am pregnant, I have been doing a lot of research on the medication I take on a daily basis, and it’s possible side effects on my pregnancy. To be fair, there’s not a lot of information out there. A lot of drugs are simply not studied much, or even …

Pursuing Your Dreams

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a model. Maybe not quite, actually… first I wanted to be a pop-star-veterinarian-ballerina, but once I became somewhat realistic with what I wanted out of life. I was a chubby kid, though. And because of my ADD, I never stuck with anything for long …

Changing my Medication

I have some really big news! I had an appointment with my psychiatrist last week, and we talked about something that is both good and really scary. I’ve been doing so much better over the last few months, but there is an issue that has been bothering me since I did some research early on. …

One Month on Dexedrine

Although I’m not doing them as frequently, I did still want to make an update here and there to these medication posts. I started with Prozac and I have been increasing my dose a bit more every couple of weeks. As I mentioned in my previous post, my eating habits are now officially under my control, …

One Month on Prozac + Dexedrine

I’ll be dialling these posts back now, as they’re not particularly interesting anymore. The big changes seem to have already happened, and anything else that happens will be subtle and will no longer need a weekly update. The one thing worth mentioning, though, is my food problem. It is amazing, I have been able to …

Week 3 on Prozac

Monday: I forgot my first pill. Funny how I was just joking about that the other day. I’ve also been taking a colon cleanse supplement that has been helping with my weight loss, and I also forgot that one. Usually, I keep these things in my purse but today they got left behind in the kitchen. …

Week 2 on Prozac

The lovely positive effects I noticed during the first week have all but faded. I’m making bad food choices again and my hatred for the way my body looks is returning with a vengeance. I should have known that it would be too good to be true.
