If you are a long time reader of my blog, you know that I struggle with depression. I have tried many things to “beat” this thing…but alas, the Lord has allowed this for me for His purposes. Understanding that He is in control and that He truly has a purpose in this for me has been a tremendous encouragement to me.
I have tried various meds, you may remember. It seems that my body emotionally really likes lexapro. This is what helped me 4 years ago, and now it is helping me again.
But, physically, my body does NOT like lexapro so well. Carb cravings, craving all that soda again, eating a LOT…and ya’ll, I’m already gaining the weight again.
That is enough to lead you right back into depression, ya know what I mean??
For now, my emotional well being is taking precedence over everything else. I just canNOT live in the depression and be who I’m supposed to be as a wife, mother, homeschooler…so, I’m taking the meds. I am trying to be more active. Trying is the key word. I’m doing fairly well at doing some good walking a few times a week, an exercise video on other days…
But, it’s not helping. Yet anyway.
So, any other tips for surviving the cravings and hunger? I have googled around a bit and this seems to be a pretty common problem. Ugggg….
