Ole Karen's Back!

Feeling hopeful and remarkably productive today! It can't possibly be the medicine my psychiatrist added to the mix, can it? This soon? Regardless the source of my bliss, I am feeling good and I intend to act on it! 

I am back to working on my wellness plan. I got a full night's sleep last night, and I've been eating well. Today, I'm going to do my Fat Burning Workout for Dummies DVD and kick up the endorphins.

And, to top it off, while I've been typing this, I've also been texting my brother. He has tickets to the Potomac Nationals minor league game tonight - behind the dugout! - and Gio Gonzalez of the Washington Nationals is pitching! My day has just gotten even better!

Blogging at the Shrink's

So, here I am waiting for the doctor; and like a car that makes a strange sound until the mechanic checks it out, I'm suddenly feeling better now. 

I'll still tell him about my slump, but...

Gotta go. Just called me...

The Funk Continues...

I'm still in quite the funk! I've been on edge and irritable for several weeks now. My self-esteem has taken a dip and negative thoughts are again cycling through my head. Don't know if this is because the new meds are wrong and Effexor was right, or because of the chemistry change in my head while switching meds. Either way, I don't like feeling this way, and I'm going to bring it up to the doctor tomorrow. 

On a more pleasant note, summer school is going well. I LOVE my classes! I look forward to the day when I'll be able to put it all to use in my own practice.

Well, I wish I had more to share - something more substantive - but that's it for now. 

P.S. - If there is anything in particular that you'd like me to blog about, I'm very open to suggestions! Drop me a note here or via email at:
