I think it's finally spring.
Thursday, April 18, 2019
Sometimes if I leave the window open too long I get sneezy. Spring has sprung. I'm enjoying my time outside though. After being cooped up for a month being able to go places and know the fuel gauge is working is great. It's weird having a ride you don't have to fix all the time.
Last week my therapist told me she's retiring at the end of May. I'm sad about that because she's helped me a lot in such a short amount of time. She's trying to line up a replacement but I might be on meds only after my last two appointments for a while. I'll keep trying to improve on my own if I have to, but it's been nice to have an outside perspective on things.
My clothes are fitting better again. I don't feel the urge to snack as much anymore and I feel like I'm getting full off of smaller portions. It might be the antidepressants but the usual side effect for Lexapro is weight gain. It might be getting more of an intermittent fast effect now. Before I would eat dinner later in the evening or want to have a midnight snack before. Lately I've noticed once I brush my teeth at night I can go without eating until morning.
Other than that I've been binging dog and cat videos like mad. I usually don't approve of smushy faced dogs and cats even though I think French buldogs are cute (I feel like breeders go overboard for the look and not health to get money from people that will dump their pet when it gets serious...rant over) but I've been watching English bulldog and pitbull/Staffordshire terrier videos. On Youtube there's a bulldog named Reuben that lives in NC and he's a character. He couldn't get in his dad's lap and went to the corner and tossed his toys around. It's wildly entertaining when I want to take a break from the news.
