I need drugs

CAFFEINE COURT brought up an interesting topic the other day- What are you on?

I was a very proud member of the "I don't NEED a pill to get through the day" club until last year.

I chaired our JL largest fundraiser with half of the normal committee members (had to move the venue), had a child starting kindergarten, had a child starting middle school, ran my own business ( one employee pregnant and another with health issues), my husband made a career change AND we opened an art gallery.

I am now on 10mg of Lexapro every day.
I smile.
I breathe.
I usually can sleep through the night.

I am now apologizing, IF, I have spoken sharply to you or not said "please or thank you" as I should.

I am sorry.

Please do not lecture me on the drugs. I didn't need them until I was 35 with a middle schooler. You just don't need them yet.
Its just a matter of time. I'm just sayin'.

I now have lexapro and Firefly sweet tea vodka. Life is good.

I completely understand. I am on paxil and have been for about four years now. Ever since my oldest was diagnosed with diabetes. It sent me into a tailspin. Who cares what people say. BTW...whare is your art gallery? Would love to come for a look when I'm near Atlanta next month.

Thanks for the warning. Kindergarten is a couple of years off for us, but at least now I know there IS hope!
