No. of Recommendations: 0
Another exhausting weekend coming up. Friday have soccer all day, then Braden's birthday party, then Sunday a cousin's birthday party. Tonight I have to take Aaron shopping to get Braden's present, tomorrow night take the boys shopping to get their cousin's present. Maybe one day I'll get to rest. . .

It sounds as though you're on a miserable treadmill. Does it have to be Prozac, or would your doctor recommend another drug in its place? Some of the new ones have fewer side-effects. I know you hate taking the medication, but it sounds as though just now you need it. It might not be forever - sometimes there are hormonal changes at a later time - but it sounds as though you're losing control, and need the drug.

It also sounds as though you need a day off. I took a half-day from work on Tuesday, and went to the flower show. Is there any possibility of taking a day off, to do something for yourself? Getting into a rut is not good. Some time to yourself, for a special treat of some kind, might help alleviate some of the stress.

I've noticed the correlation between PMS, depression and migraines as well. This is clearly the worst of times for you. I hope things will improve.

Hang in there. Life will improve.
