I Know the Way

I am looking forward to going home, I really am, but I am not in the mood to drive home. I am so glad to be off the Clomid(TM). For the 5 days I am taking it, I feel like I am off the Zoloft(TM). I have been on Zoloft(TM) for 9 years due to a chemical imbalance caused by meningitis when I was a teenager. Without it, I have severe depression and I am a little OCD. On it, I am totally 100% myself. For these past 5 days, I felt so...bleck! Today I feel back to normal. When I get pregnant I have some serious things to think about. Zoloft(TM) is in pregnancy class B with the FDA which means they do not know of any side effect on babies. I know of people who stayed on it and the baby was fine. Also, if I am not mentally in top form, well that would affect the kid too. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my pregnancy/baby when I finally get it. Sigh. Oh, well let's not buy the cart before the horse, as they say.
Enough stalling, I should go home now. Til later, goodnight.

P.S. The TM stands for TradeMark. Oh no is TradeMark a (TM)?

Depression can do awful things. You gotta do what cha gotta do. My best friend (who has 3 kids due to IVF) was on Zoloft for all 3, and they're perfect, wonderful, amazing. Her doctor said it was better to be on it, than off. She, too wondered if it was a good idea, and finally decided it was better to be on it.
And I hear ya about the clomid. Here's to this cycle working for you. Good luck.
