well, I guess this is my checking in, because I see my last post above was late October. How did I fare? Not as bad as the year before, but I still gained 10 - 12 pounds from late October to January, even with using my Happy Light, and being on the better-for-me Wellbutrin. And still hated Christmas this year
I only started feeling like myself again, and renewed energy and hope to eat better and exercise, in late February.
I have lost the winter weight I gained.
This fall, I need to make an appt with my doctor, and ask for something MORE to help. Isn't there a drug that's supposed to enhance antidepressants? yeah, Abilify. I will ask if maybe that will help. Because right now, I am loving spring/early summer, I am working out almost every day, I am watching what I eat, I'm looking forward to our summer of motorcycling...but I feel that dread lurking in the dark months way ahead.
