So I’ve been taking this medicine for depression. Well, it is a study med. Well, the rules say that after 12 weeks being on the medicine that 1/2 of the study people would be started on a placebo and the other half would continue to receive the real med. Well, I ended up being placed on the placebo after the first 12 weeks. No good. I went on that nearly 4 weeks ago. Needless to say, I have not been very fun to be around lately.
So I could tell that I was approaching a point where I needed to either switch to a prescription med or something. so I e-mailed and told them what all was going on. Within about 30 minutes I was getting calls and e-mails. “Can you come in today?!?!?!?!? We can switch you today!!!”
So I zipped over to the doc’s office. Got blood taken, EKG (which was normal), blood pressure (it has never looked this good), and weight. Weight? Wait!!!!
Not to fret. I jumped up on the scales…yep, down to my 220s. I tried to push it down to 228, but it kept topping out, so 229 it is. That’s right folks…To date, I have lost 36 pounds and let me tell ya. I feel much better about my weight.
