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.

soaping up a storm

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:
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!
