    So, yesterday, I finally managed to get my fluoxetine antidepressant prescription pills. My psychologist told me to just go ahead and start at 20mg (1 full pill) right away. Oftentimes the doc will have you start at 10mg for the first week, then work your way up, but...whatever.

    I took the first pill yesterday, and I don't know if it was the pill or what, but my stomach started hurting like fuck, and I got a headache. Sleeping went ok, though, and today I've just sort of felt "high" most of the time. It's been kinda weird, I think it might actually have something to do with the increased anxiety many people report feeling the first week on fluoxetine. Another thing is, some people say fluoxetine doesn't do it for them, while others say it's a godsend, and I think for me it's the latter. I KNOW I have a crazy low tolerance for any mind-altering shit, and I know it's probably a good dose of placebo as well, but I seriously felt a bit happier and more motivated today. I'm still feeling like a zombie, which is basically a feeling of "why even bother getting out of bed", but I think I felt a tiny bit of happiness - and more importantly, motivation.

    I'm gonna go to bed in not too long and try to start off my day pretty early tomorrow with a gym session before going to school. If I manage this, it'll be the first time in months that I've managed to do both things on the same day. A lot of this is just me pushing myself, but the depression I've been suffering from has seriously made it impossible. Now that I'm on these pills, I feel I have an extra boost to help me, so now is the perfect time to give it 100% and get out of this fucked up funk.

    I'm glad you seem to feel better today Gary. I hope this continues, and you can get to a point where you can stay being happy.

    Gar, seriously, I hear it's best to chop that shit up and snort it. You will thank me later. All the kids are saying it, feel the Bern.

    well this is weird, but thank you. It's now or never. I can either give this year my 100% and achieve something in life, or continue down this horrible path and end up at the bottom of the food chain with the most insane list of thrown away opportunities you'll ever see.

    There's never a magic pill to solve ya problems Gary. You just need to find the right outlet for your pent up energy emotion and a 30 yr load.

    30yr load? Garbear is still in school, yo!
    Magic pill, Gar, try taking 2 of your pills tomorrow. And increase the dose by 50% everyday. You will be much happier and soon you won't feel anything.

    Don't tell him to do that. The chemist will never give him another script! He barely got this one.
