Adventures in Rx drugs

I started taking Pristiq last week. It’s an SNRI – actually it’s Effexor XR repackaged. I’ve never taken antidepressants before, so it’s been, uh, interesting. The second day I rolled all day. Not like a hard roll, but like a medium roll with dilated pupils, euphoria, hot/cold temp spikes, dry mouth, even a tish of jitters, jaw clenching and bouncy eyes. I certainly did not expect that!

But since then it’s been more of a speedy feeling one day and a crash the next. I’m not particularly happy with how I feel, however, I have ZERO appetite. I mean, ZERO. I got sick to my stomach last night because I hadn’t eaten and I still didn’t really want anything. Now that I can get behind. I’ll put up with weird seratonin spikes if I can keep the zero appetite. That will certainly kick start my dieting efforts! I’ll even pay the $200 a month for the shit if it continues to douse my appetite. It’s totally worth it to me for that benefit alone.

Now, on to today’s cuteness! BABY NIBBLER!! Yes, Nibbler (who I’ve determined is a girl) has a little Nibbler who we are calling Son of Nibbler although we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl. Below is Nibbler and Son of Nibbler (sorry for the slight blur in the baby pic, but it was full zoom):
