Playin’ Catch-Up!

Got a little preoccupied with life lately and have seriously neglected this poor little blog of mine. Time to play a little catch-up!

Zoloft (generic) seems to be working well for me. My anxiety is at manageable levels. Side effects are minimal. I feel relatively “normal,” whatever that may mean. I’m definitely feeling less “outsider-ish” in my own life. BONUS: I think it’s actually causing me to lose weight. That could be a negative side effect, I suppose, but since I had been trying to drop some weight anyway, I’m just lovin’ it!

I opted to stay on 50 mg because it’s effective enough at this point and there’s no point to over-medicating. I don’t want to end up zombie-like with no real range of emotion… I’m happy enough just having my brain be quieter and less cruel and I think feeling some anxiety is completely acceptable. It was the incapacitating anxieties that were an issue for me. Sooo… going to continue with it and see how it goes.


Sorta, kinda dating someone. She has amazing eyes. Not really expecting it to go too far though but, enjoying  being able to get out and have some fun 🙂
