first, i would like to thank everyone who expressed concern and offered advice on my previous post about my zoloft dilemma. i have decided that it is time to concentrate on myself a little more right now and hopefully everyone will benefit. instead of going right back on the zoloft, i have decided to work harder at my diet and make a concerted effort to get to the gym regularly. my gym offers babysitting, which my kids think is lots of fun and it allows me to do something for myself, alone, for an hour each day. my hope is that by taking better care of myself, i will improve my own self image and how i value myself, which will in turn make me a happier person, which will then help me deal with my children and all of the other things that go on in a more positive way. if, however, i find that i am still snappy and grumpy towards the kids (after improving myself), it's back to zoloft.
thanks again for all the kind thoughts and good advice. i really do appreciate it!
