Feeling Better

Last month, I shared about my depression and how if affects my life.  I see my Primary Care Physician (PCP) every month to review my meds so I can get my refills.  **A side note: This doctor has saved my life. I love her SO much**  I talked to her about my moods, and she agreed that I was depressed and it was time to adjust my meds.  I take an SNRI to help with my anxiety and depression.  If you didn't know, they come as a pair.  I (used to) have severe anxiety.  To the point where it made me change how I lived my life.  I had extreme anxiety about returning movies (when it was popular to rent them) and library books.  I love to read, so I was only hurting myself with huge fines.  Ok, getting back to my meds, I take the highest dose of my SNRI, so we had to add another med.  I think it's helping a lot.  I am sleeping less, my mood is improving, and I feel motivated to get things done, although I am not at the point of actually doing it.  I think I will get a lot of things done this week.  It's SUCH a relief!

Remember these guys?

Now I'm going to share with you my bad news.  So last week, I saw an update on the music group Hanson, and how they picked their wives.  Two of them met their spouse at their concerts.  Now all 3 are happily married, and are making lots of babies while they are touring the states in a huge tour bus together.  The BAD NEWS: ever since then, MMM Bop has been stuck in my head.  I can't get rid of it! And it's driving me crazy!  I will be doing random things, like pouring a drink, flipping through the channels or waiting for the computer to start up, and I find myself singing that damn song! So after I hear myself singing this torturous song, it plays in my head loudly until I immerse myself fully into whatever I'm doing.  Then it slowly goes away.  But out of nowhere it will pop up again, and it literally makes me cringe.  When I recognize that I'm singing/humming the words, I make an irritated growling "UGH" noise.  It's seriously driving me nuts.  A song stuck in your head for a day or two, is a normal thing.  This has been a week.  And I HATE this song!  I've never liked it, no offense against Hanson.  I just wish it would stop.  Does anyone else ever have this problem?!

This image also gets stuck in my head!  The older one always has a weird expression, and the youngest one looks like my sister's best friend during elementary school that is a girl.  And that part creeps me out for some reason.


BUT, it's been awhile since those days...
Hanson Today.  Improvement, Eh?
The Hanson Fam
Not sure who their wardrobe management is...
