Discussions that mention prozac

Addiction & Recovery board

Hey Mags - Sorry, I haven't abandoned you. I've been doing more reading here than posting lately. The last couple of days haven't been too great. Yesterday I didn't take any vics and I was feelin' pretty low, physically and mentally. I just couldn't get it together......I did force myself to get out of the house for a couple of errands, I think I mentioned that in another post somewhere - maybe here! Um, okay, can we say SCATTERED!?!?! :dizzy:
Once I got home, I was drained.........bad.......

Today I went to the Dr. and got Prozac, which I'm happy and optimistic about, but I woke up with the worst back pain this morning and I finally took a vic about 2 hours ago. It feels like someone stabbed me in the back. I think I slept funky last night. The vic has had no noticeable effect on my pain or my mood. I just feel like crap! I've been on the heating pad and now ice......I just want to cry because I feel so helpless and I have SO much to do around here!!!! I hope the pain is gone tomorrow morning and I won't have to take anything for it.

How are you doing today sweetie?? Maggie got Arby's roast beef??? Yum! I spoil my girls like that too, although, a lot of people would argue I'm killing my dogs by feeding them human food - I also cook for them, boiled chicken and vegs, steak, ground turkey........I made them litle hamburgers the other night!!!!!! No seasoning or anything - and they loved it. Plus, as long as I give them their vitamins every day, I don't feel so bad. And they do eat some dry Eukaneuba food, which they seem to like. They need the dry food to help keep their teeth clean, so....it all works out! Insert puppy icon here!!! :p

I'm still struggling with the whole meeting thing. My biggest fear is that I'll go and just sit there and cry!!!!! My emotions have been so close to the surface lately (some days/moments) better than others.......I just don't want to look like a fool in front of strangers. At the same time, I think it would be nice to be with others who have been through it - like coming to this board with all of you! I did find out yesterday that one of my friends has been through this!!!! I don't know the details yet, but we are getting together Tuesday night (my first official "outing" since starting detox.)
It's really good to talk to her and know that she understands and supports me!

Oh, girl, I have to go lay down........my back is killing me. Write back and let me know how you and Maggie Mae are doing and if you've made any plans for the weekend!!!!! Chat soon! :wave:
