New Beginning 989
The anti-depressant Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor indicated for outpatient management of depression, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, premenstrual dysphoric disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (when combined with cognitive behavior therapy). Adolescents on Zoloft have increased risk of suicide.
My doctors: Zoloft = Wonder Drug
Mom + (me + Zoloft) = suicide watch
Me + Zoloft: Eh
As in: Someone: Lottie, your hair’s pretty. Me: Eh.
Lottie, we want to skip you forward in school. Me: Eh.
Lottie, your beloved Grandpa died. Me: Eh.
Those tiny, superabsorbent, emotion-sponges soak up all the joy, all the pain, all the feelings that are part of being alive. Sometimes feelings hurt—maybe even way more than they should—but when you can’t feel anything you’re dead. Right?
Good thing not all emotions are sponge-worthy. I still have greed, sloth, envy . . . And of course gluttony. Zoloft is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor with major munchies as a side effect.
Me + Zoloft = no Oreos for you
