...I take wellbutrin and would be completely unable to function without it. I starting taking it when Liza was diagnosed with her last recurrence and it helps me to to be organized in my thought process and vertical in all things, rather than horizontal and catatonic.
Liza died three weeks ago today and it feels incredible to me that I have lived through this much time in so much pain and have survived-am surviving- to live another day.
I believe in the efficacy of antidepressants and am an advocate for their use. They regulate chemicals in the brain and thank god for that- I know that without Wellbutrin , my brain would be as awash in poison as Liza's body was at the last.
There is no reason for people not to avail themselves of advances in medicine to ease pain-talk to your doctor about what they feel is best for you.
