Ya know, when I started this blog I was thinking alot about depression and I have noticed that I have not written about it in ages. Why? Because I finally found a med combo that really works for me. My bestest friends Abilify, Zoloft and Armour Thyroid. I've been on this combo since 2006 and I must say I have not been this content and motivated in decades. Honestly. I've set some goals and have stuck with them even when I've been knocked off course. I went back to school. I got chickens. I got 100's on math tests! 100's! None of this had been possible prior to the med combo. I feel happiness, I can feel pleasure and hope. The dispair and foreboding is gone. The down side to these drugs is now I am pre-diabetic and look like I've been inflated with a bike pump. I've balooned up and just can't lose it no matter what I try. I'm trying to look at it as the price I have to pay to have my brain working again. But I really don't like it.
I feel so happy to be back to my "normal" self again.

Well I've been bitten by the soaping bug again. Stress relief from studying for exams is more like it. But it has been a ton of fun and now I have a bunch of soap sitting around so I opened my Etsy shop again. I hope to bring in a little money so I can keep soaping. So if ya want some great smelling and feeling soap, give me a shout and take a gander at my Etsy here: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5953&page=1§ion_id=&order=
The chickens are hating the cold weather. when I let then out the huddle up by the house and peck on the door. Silly birds. Now I know that it has been chilly here and a few nights have been below freezing but it is Texas after all. It just ain't that cold!
