Getting better one day at a time

Good afternoon everyone! Two week absence, not terrible, but still I’m trying not to leave you or myself hanging with my blog. A lot has been going on since my birthday. From me putting in my two weeks to Starbucks and getting new medication for my depression, I’m hoping that by taking care of myself I’ll be happier and not as distant towards everyone in my life.

By leaving Starbucks, I’ll be working at Fred Meyers full-time as well as volunteering at a bird rescue and rehabilitation center. I haven’t had time to volunteer for anything in so long. I enjoy it, because I am helping causes that I support and it helps others (humans/animals/the environment) see what can happen if you lend a hand. Though while leaving Starbucks will be good for me, I will miss my co-workers dearly. They have been some of the best people to work with, even the recent new hires are awesome. I am still working on my secret project for my initial co-workers, I have a few earrings to go due to me not working on them, but they will get them eventually. I plan on working on one pair today.

As for my depression, last Wednesday my doctor prescribed me Cymbalta. I’m on day 5 of taking one 60mg at 6am; after one week I’ll be taking two a day. So far I’m not liking the side effects which I need to send a message to my doctor. These include a sore throat that feels like it’s swollen, getting severely dizzy and almost fainting at home and work, sleeping more, and a few others. Yeah I’m not sure if I’ll want to stay on this medication. But it is a start.

Well I’m going to eat breakfast! Have a great day everyone!
