Wellbutrin good....

... Wellbutrin very good.

Actually, its not technically Wellbutrin. Its bupropion hydrochloride extended release tablets, and they're purple. And they're good.

The first day, I didn't notice any change at all. Nothing the second day either. Actually the second day I had a bit of a breakdown, complete with guilt and inner rage. I had that internal monologue that only the depressed understand: 'I'm a failure. I failed. I'm terrible. I'm worthless. I am destroying my children. I passed on these awful genetics, and its not just the long face and flat dishwater hair.'

The third day was a little better. I panicked when I had to leave the house, but it passed quickly and I was able to talk myself down.

I don't remember the days between then and now, but I do know that right now, at this very moment, I am myself again. I didn't scream at the children today, not even once, unless you cout hanging out the screen door, screaming for them to come in and get dinner. I made dinner today, and a fruit pizza, which if you ask me turned out pretty damn good.

I watched Keith Olbermann and laughed out loud, and participated in my favorite online community.

Yep. I gotta hand it to the folks at GSK. Ya done good.
