this can happen sometimes even with an antidepressant. And you're not famous for dealing with stress remember? So yeah, i agree it could be a backlash from all that buildup of worry and then finding out that no news was good news and it was "needless" worry. you also chose not to call him because you wanted to get the results in person - do you think you could be beating yourself up about that a bit... shoulda coulda type thing? it's perfectly reasonable to want the results in person. and now you know that they'll call you in if something is urgent. in this post you sounded as though you had energy but it had a negative quality. are you feeling any better now, or any different at all?

anna karenina turned out to be my most favorite book i have ever read. i am back to read junky books although i have a lot of tolstoy on my kindle. i want to read them. i don't know when i will.
just probably a matter of mood and pace. i'm sure you'll read them when you get sauced enough for them. and you will...

i am also tired of dieting and afraid to get on the scale because i have eaten a lot lately. i have been making corn muffins. yummy. i gave up again on eating pastry at the senior center because it really isn't that good. i have been eating a lot of grapefruit which i am now getting bored with.
yummy is right. i wish i could stop by and have corn muffins with you. i am sure they are much healthier than the pastry at the senior center. i've been OD'ing on dark chocolate with hazelnuts. i gained a kilo back. i don't know it could be more now.

dark chocolate with hazelnuts......yummy....better than corn muffins any day.
i am still in a major funk. everything is an effort. a friend wrote me. i thought she was angry at me because i didn't answer her email for three months. then i just sent her a joke...an off color joke about nine inch pianist....
i don't know if the wellbutrin generic is working any more. i will speak to the doctor on the 29th. how is he supposed to know if i don't know.
love you
bobby

Hi sweetie,

are you taking 300mg wellbutrin? I think they can increase it still from there. It will depend on your sx what he will want to do. Do you feel activated at all?

i wish i could send you some of this chocolate but i am afraid of the conditions (heat) it might be exposed to in the mail. my girlfriend once sent me chocolate from florida and it looked and tasted like it had melted and recongealed about 6 times, it was almost one with the packaging and leaky... yes i ate it anyway , at least some of it.

then again it is winter now, and cold both here and there. i don't know if the mail routing will take it through the southern US. i suppose i could try... ROFL.

love

Dear sweet Bobby

I'm sorry you have been so depressed. i was afraid of that. Your appointment is 6 days away now. Like i said i think your wellbutrin can probably be increased... in any case your doc sounds like he is willing to be creative and try different things. i have hope he will find a way to treat your depression successfully.

lots and lots of love to you, and big

thanks so much Waves. I wonder if the generic wellbutrin is working. this isn't a painful depression. it just seems to be robbing me of everything practically.
i still can read. i feel barren and everything seems bleak.
love
bobby
