I feel like I've stopped taking a "make me sick pill." This is the second day that I'm doing without the welbutrin and I'm on the dose of effexor that's supposed to sustain me, and people, I feel so much better. I'm actually in a good mood all day long and I don't mean hyped up, but nice and pleasant and relaxed. It's a great relief and more than I could have hoped for, because I expected some withdrawal problems. It seems that I wasn't on the welbutrin long enough to have any of those, as it is with people who use it to stop smoking. I can't believe they prescribe this medicine for people to stop smoking, when you realize the sort of troubles you can get into. I wonder how many "accidents" happen because of it? Well, never mind, I'm off the stuff now and not too soon. It was like being on a bad trip.
I took a nap from 4 to 6 pm and still feel the after effects of it. It's like I never woke up properly and I could go back to sleep in an instant. I'm already looking forward to bedtime, but it's a little bit too early for that now. Instead I took Tyke for a walk in effort to blow the cobwebs out of my head and we ran into a man with a very little dog and a very big dog. Of course, Tyke was very interested, but the man acted like he was taking the crown jewels out for a walk and didn't give them so much as a chance to sniff each other. This opposed to this afternoon when we met a woman with two dogs, one of which was a keeshond and he and Tyke hit it off great and embraced each other numerous times. They were the same age and it was very funny. The woman is one of several people now who has asked me if Tyke is part poodle, which leads me to believe that he is a cockapoo and not a long haired American cocker spaniel. He does have some aspects of a cocker spaniel, but he doesn´t have that long nose or extra long ears.
I think I´m going to bed after all. I will read my book for awhile. I´m not making much headway in it and I would like to finish it one of these weeks. It will be so nice to go lie down in bed and be comfortable under the clean duvet.
Have a good evening you all. Or a good day, which ever applies.
