It has been about 6 months since I’ve last written. I haven’t forgotten about my blog, just have had a lot of different things going on in my life that have taken up most of my attention. I do, occasionally, like to add a few updates just to keep it a little lively.
I will start out by saying that nothing major has happened in my life in the past 6 months, but then again sometimes it’s the little things in life that build up to the biggest changes. Continue reading
Hello everyone 🙂
In my last post, I mentioned that I have some kind of big news to share. Well, here it is: I’m officially medication free! It took a month, but I finally stopped taking sertraline (aka Zoloft) and my oral contraceptives (aka tri-sprintec) and I have not felt this great in years. I chose to stop medication because I felt it was no longer doing what I wanted it to do. Yes, it took the edge off, but eventually for me the side-effects outweighed any benefit I was experiencing anymore. I am now in a stable work environment with a cozy, daily routine, so my anxiety has been much better than it was when I was in college. Continue reading
I have been taking a bit of a break from blogging lately. I have had zero interest in writing or even turning on my laptop. I think it’s partly because of the dark days of winter and because I’ve been working a lot on my crochet. I made this afghan for my mom for Christmas. Continue reading
I have been coping remarkably well with the change in seasons this year. The transition from summer to fall happened really slowly for us and I still don’t even really feel like it’s been that cold. I’m not sure what that means for later on in the winter, probably it will be a long and cold one, but so far so good. I’ve found a new hobby, if you couldn’t tell. I’ve been getting in touch with my inner kiddult and am finding how much I enjoy collecting dolls. I actually just got one back today from getting its face painted and I’ll very happily show you it sometime this week. Continue reading
Today was not a good day for me and my anxiety. We had an epic battle. There are sick people at work and while I like this people and consider them my friends, I can’t get past the illness. I expected that she was coming back to work today, so I took an Airborne tablet and a multivitamin beforehand. Even if those things don’t do anything, they make me feel better. Continue reading
Each year that the fall semester of college begins, I feel older and older. I still live in the city where I went to college because K is still studying and I just love this city. It’s absolutely wonderful and is just full of life and culture. Continue reading
I just realized today that I have written over 400 posts on this blog. I have never written that much of anything in my life, so I feel like that’s a pretty big accomplishment for me. I honestly can’t believe I’ve kept up with my blog for over 3 years now. That’s longer than anything I’ve ever committed hobby-wise. A lot of first for me, apparently. Continue reading
For years, I have admired collector’s dolls, such as ball jointed dolls (BJD) and Pullip dolls. I’ve only recently stumbled across Blythe dolls and have fallen in love with them too. As a child, I had SO many Barbies, baby dolls, and porcelain dolls. I miss those times. My mom actually still has my porcelain dolls, I think 🙂 I’d like to see what they look like sometime. Continue reading
I’ve talked about this in the past in my posts My Zoloft Nightlife and Sertraline: The Good and the Bad, but I’m going to bring it up again because it is such a strange thing that happens to me almost every night!
I take sertraline 100 mg to help with my symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Continue reading
