I'm gonna blame

my excessive sleeping on my new, comfy bed and the cold weather. I don't know what the deal is. I'm sleeping well into the afternoon on days I don't work (which is a lot because I only got called once last week.) My shrink and I have decided to decrease my Seroqual. I'm on 250 from 300 mg. I'll decrease to 200 again at the end of next week. I'm going to keep decreasing to see how little I can live on.
I feel guilty about the sleeping, but it feels like I have nothing else to do. I've signed up for a college class for the spring semester, so maybe that'll help. I have it two days a week , in the morning. Hubby and I are also gonna get memberships to the gym. We've both gained weight since we've been married and we no likey.
Oh yeah, the reason I talked to my pdoc about decreasing my meds is that Hubby and I may try to get pregnant at the end of next summer (if everything goes ok) I hope to God that I don't have another depression like last summer, but my Prozac has been a godsend.
I just kinda have to get through these boring days, maybe find a hobby, probably post a lot, and make sure I don't get borderline becaue of the boredom. Hubby has vacation until Dec. 1st at work. I need prayers.


  1. The sleeping thing I can totally relate to. It must be the time of year because it's so common. Have you thought about trying out one of those light boxes? I'm going to see about getting one myself. Apparently they work wonders. The decrease in seroquel might also be a good thing for you.

    Take care!

  2. Yeah, I've been sleeping a lot too and I am tired all the time. I am going to talk to my pdoc and get a light box and hope that my tiredness stops there and doesn't spiral into something else.

    Wishing you the best!
