Dogs



Got the job at Operation Kindness - a no-kill shelter. Oh my, they have SO many dogs and cats! It stinks like poo big time and lots of sick animals there. I already see sinus infections coming!

Very worried though, I have to work 11 hr shifts and with my heel spurs and back pain (not to mention the other pains) I dont know how long I'll make it.  Im going cold turkey off Wellbutrin and Cymbalta now.


*Dr called in a rx for Celexa! Ugh! not taking it...last time I did I was sooo depressed, couldnt keep a job, my bf and I broke up and kciked me out and I gained like 30 pounds.

You have a lot of courage to take an eleven hour a day job. I could not even consider it. I hope all goes well for you. I'll say a prayer for you. Take Care, Tuck

Well, I REALLY need a job and have to try. We cant pay the bills and I cant afford my meds.

You should call him and ask if he can give you enough samples of the Cymbalta and Wellbutrin until you can get back on your feet.  He probably will if you tell him your situation.

Yes I understand having to try. I am very, very lucky to have a husband that can support me in all ways. I am going to apply for SSD but until that time I personally have no money. And we all know how long that can take. I ADMIRE YOU. I struggled for 20 years even though my doc's told me I should apply for SSD. I was too stubborn and proud to quit. Well a month ago I had no choice but I'm in my fifties now. There are numerous antidepressants out there. Have you consdiered trying something else besides celexa. I'm sure you know they can take up to 3 weeks before they are effective.Again I wish you the best.
