Starting Zoloft

It’s been two weeks since I’ve made a post. I have ideas rattling around in my head for posts, but when I try to sit down to write them, nothing happens. Nothing much else is happening, either. I don’t feel much like doing anything at all.

I started taking Zoloft about three weeks ago. I had a week of physical side effects like dry mouth and muscle tension combined with a jittery desire to do stuff. Then I had a week or so of outright happiness. Now I’m feeling kind of flat, with a little bit of worry on top. Since it’s supposed to take 4-6 weeks for the effects to settle in, I’m sure I’ll feel differently next week. It was nice for the happiness to coincide with Alchemy because I had a great time and was more social than usual. I’d love to make a post about it all, but, well… this is all I’ve got.

Joshua and I have joked about how Zoloft is the one with the rain clouds in the commercials, so I was going to include a picture of that. I found this one, though, and it is more like how I experience depression: a happy little butterfly outside mocking me while I’m stuck in my dark cave.

Anyway, nothing to worry about; I’m doing okay. I’m just floating along, taking care of myself, and taking care of Dylan, and things like blog posts are a low priority for the moment. I hope to be back at it soon.
