My Sunday Horoscope

Yesterday, my Sunday paper had the following message for my birth sign:

"There is something in you that needs to be expressed."

I don't usually put much faith in the horoscope. I don't even look at it every day. But I think I was meant to see this one. As soon as a read it, my reaction was "No kidding!"

There is something inside me that is fighting to get out, but I can't get in touch with it. Remember the post I wrote last week about being depressed? I am in an impervious shell. My feelings are all bottled up inside and I feel incapable of taking any action.

I've been taking Prozac now for at least 15 years. I don't think it's working anymore. I think I need to try something else. Has anyone else had this experience? What other meds have been helpful? (I asked my doctor, but he doesn't seem to be very proactive in this area... he just increased my dose a bit, had no other suggestions.)

Why don't you check and see if your library has a copy of the book Unstuck by James Gordon - that way you can check it out free of charge.

I'm not suggesting that "a" book is the answer but I think you would find it very interesting. In each chapter he uses real life patient situations which are fascinating and I found many I totally could relate to.

I think it's a fantastic book with very cutting edge ideas about depression with steps to help us heal ourselves.

lots of love always,

i've heard zoloft is good...but i don't have personal experience so check out the side effects, etc.

do you ever think of moving back to philly, or is it just not plausible right now?

Judy, I'd like to write you an email about this subject today. I do have a lot of experience in this area, but I thought that my comment might be too long so an email would serve the purpose better. I can't find your address, though. Why don't you email me and I'll write you this morning.
