I dare to defy Tom...
Ha ha! Screw you, Tom Cruise! I got a prescription for anti-depressants today, and I plan to use them and feel better!

Anyway, I went to my doctor today, and I'm just fine, she said. I actually saw the dr. instead of the midwife I was scheduled to see, which was strange. However, she was pretty cool. I told her how I've been losing my mind lately, and how my temper's been getting shorter and shorter and being a mom is getting harder and harder. We both agreed that I'm not depressed, thank goodness, but that I do probably have postpartum blues, which I already thought. So, she hooked me up with some samples of Lexipro, and a prescription, and I'm supposed to use it for a few months till I can get my brain back in order. I hope it works. I would love to be a happy person all the time! Like, when people ask how I'm doing, I'd love to say, "Fine, thank you," and mean it!

Oh, and I got my letter filled out, so now I can get unemployment again starting Sunday. Hooray! I feel like I'm a little pathetic being so excited about getting unemployment, but hey, I paid for it! Plus, being able to pay some bills and eat is always worth getting excited over! I think I may have a job lined up for when it's done, too, that will work with my schedule and I'll still be able to be with the babies most of the time. We'll see...

Oh, and you gotta see Taryn. She is dressed in her new outfit...brought by the clothes fairy Renee. I had these little duckie socks, and I was so upset, b/c I didn't think I'd get to use them with a matching outfit (I have a duckie onesie, but it's for when she's older). "Fear not," Renee said, "I have just the answer!" She looks SO cute! Oh, and there were lots of other completely adorable outfits, too! I'm so excited, I may just change her clothes ten times a day now! Thanks Renee!

Oh, and Curlytrouble's blanket is getting quite the use around here as well. My mom loved it when I took it to her house, and Taryn does as well! Thanks Tammy!

Okay, talk to you later! Have a great day!

    The entire cruise family is praying for you, in a weird Scientology way.

    My mom took Lexapro, and she said it made all the difference in the world for her. Prior to that she always kind of poo-poohed the idea of antidepressants, saying she didn't want to become dependent on any pills, but then when her dr. finally talked her into it, she felt so much better so fast, she told me she should have done it years ago. Good luck with it, I hope you do as well on it as she did.

    Oh, and I saw my name on your blogroll (thanks, by the way!) and just wanted to point out--my name's not really Karla B, because Babble's not my last name. karlababble is just what happens when Karla starts babbling. Well, that, and people usually leave the room.

    Glad you got some meds, Christi! You'll be a better Mom because you'll be at least slightly sane now. ;) All children deserve happy mothers, anti-depressants or not. More power to you! (And damn I hate Tom Cruise!)

    Cute pictures of Taryn! We need to meet up sometime soon. :D

    Lexipro is GOD when it comes to drugs. Me and the BGS both are big believers in it! I think that you will absolutely love it. It tends to even things out without making you a zombie, which is important. I have to send some stuff to you too, and I'm patiently awaiting getting your return address so I can stalk accordingly! :-)
