I started on Lexapro last weekend, and this stuff has me all jacked up. I'm hungry all day long but when I eat I feel like I'm going to ralph -this was a real bummer on Friday when I went to a $50/plate lunch. The food was stellar but every bite made me nauseous. Thank goodness I didn't pay for it.
What's most annoying, however, is that my sleep is getting messed up. The past 4 mornings, I've woken up no later than 5:30, and that's just not fair. This morning, Ace was nice enough to sleep in till almost 8, giving me over 2 hours to toss and turn. I got up for about half an hour while Drew met with the Dish Network tech, then snuggled back into bed for about 2 hours. I tossed and turned till around 11:30 and got up feeling awful and jittery. I spent the next several hours staring blankly at the tv, enriching my life with episodes of MTV's "True Life."
After Ace went to sleep, Drew pulled out a new version of his favorite board game to learn so we could play as I'd promised. Unfortunately, I didn't hear a word he said as he told me about all the new rules. He finally said "do you just want to go to bed?"
Poor guy looked so disappointed. I split tonight's pill in half so maybe I'll get more normal sleep tonight and be able to play Drew's favorite game with him and not write such mind-numbingly boring posts on my blog...
