Wellbutrin is AWESOME

I hadn't mentioned it before, but something of note: I've been on Wellbutrin for three weeks, most noticing its effects over the last week and a half. I haven't written - haven't felt the NEED to write.

All is calm. There are no ups and downs, only a single even line. No need to wake Jesse up every other day and tell him I need to go the psych ward because I feel like hurting myself. No need to write obsessively trying to track the wildly undulating moods.

Just quiet. Quiet outside, quiet inside, quiet...me. I do miss writing, but I do not miss the swings. If this is the "zombie" feeling so many other people report feeling, then being a zombie is pretty fantastic.

I'm sorry I didn't try this earlier. Might have avoided more than one psych stay if I'd had.

I'm glad you're doing well given the circumstances. After the past several months, extended radio silence has had me fearing the worst. Keep fighting. :-)
Thought like something may have happened on your end because you've been unusually calm over the week...
But as it always is, one has to wait for the explanation that's going to come.
Good to see that once has a rather positive reason for the silence.
This is terrific news - something that actually holds promise of stabilizing things. Well, contributing to that, anyway.

Wellbutrin is also the second-line alternative to Chantix, so I took it for a while and got bupkis for progress. Have you been smoking less, by any chance?
