Okay, life is building up and I am ready to throw in the towel and go back to bed till Spring. We found out we have to move (cannot pay rent here), in two weeks. The place I work is moving the same time. Which involves painting,etc, and a rent increase. All of this is the same week as finals. And dh got laid off the day before Thanksgiving. I think I have become immune to Prozac. And in a couple days I will be out, and we have no money to refill it. Blah, blah, blah. I am really not this completely hopeless, but I need to vent as I am working myself into a brain-numbing stressed out state that I am worried will freeze me up. Thanks for listening.

Oh my gosh. This is definitely not the time to go off meds. Can you talk to the doctor who prescribed them? He may be able to give you samples to hold you over.

Do you still have health insurance?

That sucks, I'm so sorry everything is piling up like that. When I went on Lexapro, they had tons of samples. Hopefully they'll have a sample of Prozac or can direct you to someone who does. Or, if you think you might be immune anyway, you could talk to your doctor about considering other alternatives. Lexapro has been great for me, the only drawback to changing is that you might have side effects right at the time everything is so busy.

BTW, you mentioned finals -- sounds like you're a student -- do you have a campus health center you could ask about freebies?

Good luck. I am sending you positive vibes....

Thanks guys. I got enough samples by calling around to get me through till financial aid comes in. I really am not quite as down and out as I sound. I just hate that feeling of losing control of things, when life takes turns like this. On a bright note, I got a gift certificate in the mail yesterday from a MDC mama I don't know, large enough to take care of all Xmas for Everyone. Amazing people. And although it sucks that dh is laid off, dh, myself and dd all slept in this morning (well till 8am, but we usually are up about 5:45am). It was nice having him here. Anyway, thanks you all for the advice and healing vibes. Off to drink my coffee!

My heart goes out to you JoJo. I'm glad to hear you got more meds, but keep in mind that for some people, their bodies become better able to metabolize it and it becomes less effective. Perhaps you should talk to your doctor and see if s/he thinks it might be time to switch meds. Also, typically, the side effects of switching meds is pretty insignificant, and nothing like when first taking them. I had absolutely no problems when I went from Lexapro to Zoloft.

I hope things start looking up for you soon.
