I feel SO. MUCH. BETTER. This is totally not the way antidepressants are SUPPOSED to work; isn't it supposed to take weeks for them to build up in your system and, theoretically, to exit it? Maybe Pristiq is an exception to that rule, maybe (well okay, DEFINITELY) I have a freaky metabolism, who knows, but I swear I started feeling better after I took the second half of yesterday's pill and today I feel pretty much normal.
Yesterday though? Yeah, THIS was me:
Figure One: MFA Mama without Pristiq. Actually this is Zombie Chicken, formerly known as "Baldy" a.k.a. "The Bald Hen." The others have plucked her some, as you can see, and she's also Paul's favorite, which means her back gets a lot of wear and tear from his spurs. I have trimmed his spurs and filed the points off of everyone else's beaks (not to mention butchered the worst of the culprits), and she's actually looking a lot better than she DID. Still terrifying though. If the other hens are on the nest when I go to get eggs I just nudge them over no problem. Zombie Chicken though...yeah, she greets you with THIS face, and she pecks, too!
