after miles was born i was prescribed sertraline, but i did not count on it to be a magical cure.
i tried to sleep.
i tried to eat well.
i exercised more regularly than i had in a long time.
i did not obsess over things around the house as much.
it did help, but i decided that it wasn't helping enough for the side effects i now had to deal with.
it made it harder to cry, which can be both a good and bad thing.
it helped me pack on 30lbs which i can't shake.
so, i am attempting to make a go of it without the drugs or at least get on something that might work better if things get bad again.
and i guess i have decided to add in all of life's dirty little secrets, at least for now.
