Whoa! It's Been a While!

Holy cow, I haven't blogged in nearly a year. Well, I wasn't myself for most of the last year+. When I stopped taking my Zoloft after my last surgery is when the downhill slide began, I believe. And all of the major surgeries in such a short time seemed to affect me more than I had wanted to admit. My doctor and I agreed I was probably suffering from something similar to a mild case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. So we restarted the Zoloft in late November, 2011. Now that I have been on it for a while I am feeling so much better. Maybe close to 100% back to my old self again.

And it's great. Even when my pain is nearly unbearable I am better able to remain in a good mood, be talkative, joke around. Those are things that were missing from my life for quite some time. And you don't know how important laughter is until you haven't had it for a while. Also I was having trouble getting excited to write or go to Absolute Write, or do anything I normally take pleasure in. But I'm getting those things back as well.

So here's to me feeling better, mentally, at least. I'm sitting in the hospital for the 6th time since October, yet I still am in a great mood, LOL! (It's nothing serious, by the way. Just a little breathing trouble. Some IV antibiotics are helping and I should go home tomorrow.)
