Okay, so my new "happy pills" are delightful.

I've been having some medical issues ranging from sleep deprivation, body aches, anxiety, shortness of breath, frequent headaches, and some other things. I've had so much blood work done, the vein in my right arm is cursing me. After tons of lab work and seeing a specialist, it is determined that I have tension myalgia. I'd never heard of this prior to seeing the specialist. He asked me several questions about my lifestyle and daily living and how I feel. I told him that, yes, I am very busy with 2 small kids, full time job, etc....but I don't consider myself to be any more stretched than most other moms in the same boat. He prescribed me an antidepressant. No, I'm not depressed, but he felt that it would help me not have negative reactions to the stresses of a busy schedule. Oh my goodness. How lovely life is since starting this medication. My anxieties are nothing like they were and my body aches have been relieved. Seriously, nothing gets to me. It's just wonderful. I still have to have an MRI for the headaches but I feel like that will turn out fine. I never thought I needed this type of medication, but I was so wrong.

I have taken Ritalin for 10 years.  Tremendous difference.  Whatever works for you and makes your life less miserable and more productive and easier :-)
