Drugs & spray paint

After doing a study at UNC for 6 months on PMDD (Pms on steroids) I was given monetary compensation and an rx for a low dose SSRI to take for the 7 day “danger zone” called citolapram. It was explained to me that a common depressive dose is 30-60 mg daily, while mine would be 5mg.

Ahh. I have to admit, it helped immensely. No mood swings, of mine were usually homicidal anger/rage, no 45 minute crying spells in the kitchen/shower/lowes home improvement, no intense blinding migraine. Just a general sleepy apathetic feeling. Which is very enjoyable.

One thing it did not curb was my enthusiasm for sugar. On a normal day, I love sugar. It’s pretty much my diet.

But last night we had a little shindig at the house, and even though Shane made me this delicious lobster tail

I made myself eat 4 and a half Persian cinnamon rolls from Walmart.

With a cinnamon bun in one hand and a can of plastic spray paint primer in the other, I once again looked like a crazy person on my back porch

I had to reprint Mr Peanut Butter cups again, as I just cannot figure out what awesomeness he deserves. I think I’m gonna do a Noh theater mask, because Japan didn’t have facial tattooing as I had done on him before, nor did acupuncture originate there so damn.

I also picked up some missing eared beauties and some toy soldiers and dinosaurs from the free bin at the Durham mission thrift store

    I take 60mg of Citalopram (Celexa) and have done so for almost two years.

    I have PMDD, and find this drug completely inconsequential in alleviating the symptoms.

    I mean, I guess I’d call it 50% worth a damn. I haven’t killed anyone since I began taking it. 🙂

    Eat those cinnamon rolls mama! A woman after my own heart. You live once. 🙂

    Sugar pacifies the mania momentarily. If I had to choose between meds or desserts, I’d choose the hot fudge sundae every time.

    Since I can’t choose, I have both. Every time. 🙂

    Love ya!

      I’m trying to be really cognisant of it, and not think of it as a miracle drug, I honestly didn’t think it would do jack crap, but as I am a completely different person when I go thru the Pmdd crap, like I am a maniac, constantly irrationally livid and/or bawling.. It has really made a huge difference. Great example..checked the mail Saturday. Received a lovely note from the IRS saying I’ve been audited and owe what amounts to 2 1/2 weeks of my paycheck because of some 1040s my husband didn’t think to give me. Normally, not only would I have completely flipped shit, I would’ve had his head on a stick. I still don’t feel phased by it. So mentally, I find it helpful. For now. I still have another 5 days of pure hateful to fight. 🙂
