Why don't I get better?

I have been trying to get better for it seems forever. My doctor just put me on prozac about 3 weeks ago. I am unhappy about being overweight and am going to start doing something about it soon. I am not going to have any more carbs most of the time until I lose a good amount of weight. You see my weight is one thing that I know makes me unhappy. I am also unhappy about growing old. I know we all have to go through it but it seems like hell to get old. There is nothing I can do about that. I can't work due to disability and I don't have any energy to do hardly anything including chores around here. I have been on geodon and trazadone for quite some time but was still depressed and he added prozac. Just feel like this unhappiness will never end.

First of all I love that Dancing Cat.

It's hard to find any happiness when you are stuck in a rut like this. I am in a similar rut myself at the moment.

Hopefully when the Prozac kicks in you will start to feel better.

Thanks for your post. It's a low dose of prozac, 20 mg. I felt better at first and now I am feeling down again. I'm really tired of this freezing cold weather we are having, too. Plus my bird is sick and I can't get her to the vet yet because it's too cold to go out there. She could die now if I take her out. I think a nice warm sunshiney day would help.

I agree with you about the warm sunshine Day - I can't wait for spring and the warm air to return!

It's supposed to go up to 40 on Tuesday which is a heat wave compared to what we have had lately. I need for it to go up more to take Lucy out.
