Day 18 – Fluoxetine & Wellbutrin.

Sunday (9/15) was a busy day. I preached on Mark 13 (eschatology). I’m not a huge fan of eschatology – it is a difficult topic for me to preach on…I have a hard time understanding it. So did Martin Luther and John Calvin though, so I feel I am in… Continue reading

Days 16 / 17 – Fluoxetine & Wellbutrin.

Friday (9/13) was a decent day. I had counseling and this new counselor is very good, but also exhausting. Afterwards I was so emotionally exhausted I took a 2.5 hr. nap. I didn’t sleep well Thursday into Friday and I wouldn’t sleep well again Friday into Saturday. But my mood… Continue reading

Days 14/15 – Fluoxetine and Wellbutrin

On Wednesday (9/11) I woke up at 7:30 am. I had several meetings throughout the day and did some office work. I was still struggling with the change that had occurred and throughout the day this was evident. I took two naps – two hours, the other one hour. That… Continue reading

Day 9 – Fluoxetine and Wellbutrin.

Friday (9/6) was a fairly busy day. I started off the day at the Langhorne Coffee House with Paul (my brother) – which is always a pleasure…and the food is good too. From there I headed directly to the psychologist I’ve been seeing for a year or so now. He… Continue reading

Days 6 and 7 – Fluoxetine and Wellbutrin.

Tuesday (9/3) was another restless night. I slept from 1 to 3 am and then was up until 5 am. Woke up again for the day at 8 am. Did a bunch of office work and other church related activities and was feeling pretty good. Went to the leadership meeting… Continue reading

When I Ask…

When I ask my psychiatrist if I should be concerned about increasing my dosage of Wellbutrin (bupropion) while also being on Prozac (fluoxetine) and he dismisses it out of hand – I assume that means that there is no reason for concern…Until I experience this. Today, with my cognitive abilities… Continue reading

Well, That Was New.

It has been a busy, yet productive day. I’ll talk more about it tomorrow when I write my usual blog post about the previous day’s happenings, but I wanted to record this specific experience while it is still fresh in my memory. I prepared for a church meeting tonight and… Continue reading

Day 6 – Fluoxetine and Wellbutrin.

Take a wild guess how my day (9/2) started? That is right, with insomnia. I finally fell asleep around 4 and slept until 8. Not surprisingly, I did take a nap (1 hr. 40 mins.), though somewhat surprising is that I only took a single nap and it didn’t match… Continue reading

Days 3, 4, 5 – Fluoxetine and Wellbutrin.

On Friday (8/30) I had a Skype session with a new counselor. He seems godly, intelligent, and friendly – I’m looking forward to future sessions with him and really appreciate his willingness to do Skype sessions with me rather than requiring me to drive an hour to his office and… Continue reading

Day 1 – Fluoxetine and Buproprion

I did not use the CES on the 27th – so the 28th was my first full day without its utilization. I attempted to go to bed around midnight but tossed and turned until 1 am. I was up by 7. I took fluoxetine at my regular dosage (60 mg)… Continue reading
