A Walk in the Rain

It’s been raining a lot here lately, with many roads flooding over in places. I hadn’t had the chance to get out at all the past few days, and despite the weather, I decided to go out for a three mile walk (~5 km). It was very nice.

My mind’s still getting used to Prozac. Like with other medicines of its type, I feel a sense that life has the volume turned down. Feelings are muted. The world is in blander colors. Not literally. Figuratively.

As it stands, I think I’ll be happier when I fully adjust to the new head chemistry. Things are going a lot better on Prozac than it is on anything else. I really don’t want to go to a higher dose. I’m able to function and create, while at the same time things in my life don’t run me over as hard.

One thought on “A Walk in the Rain

  1. Several years ago I had an extremely unpleasant experience at work … so bad, in fact, that I took disability leave (and ended up taking early retirement). The situation disturbed me at my core and it wasn’t long before I knew I was in a depressive state of mind.

    I started seeing a therapist and was prescribed Prozac. Quite an experience. Not in a bad sense … just that I got to a point where life was “fine.” No worries. No crying jags. No moments of self-defeating thoughts. I used it for about 3 months before I finally weaned myself off of it.

    Naturally I realize my circumstances are/were much different than yours, but I wanted to share my experience in hopes the medication ends up working as well for you.
