It Is Fitting Friday

Welcome to my newest blog site … trandymay.com. I encourage you to visit often as I intend on posting regularly. The primary focus of my posts will be in the area of Personal Growth and Development, and will spill over into the Growth and Development of my Internet Networking Experiences.

Hey … What Happened To JUNE!

Hi Everyone, Randy May here …

This is the first post I have been able to get out of my head and into my blog since Ticklish Thursday, May 31st.! There are a number of reasons for this and I don’t need to go into great detail about them, but just know this … challenges arise and we can either cower and fall or we can regroup, focus our senses, and crawl, if necessary, over the Brick Wall that became such a big challenge.

I have had a chemical imbalance in my brain for years and have been taking a small dose of a medication each day since 1989 to help with that imbalance. Now, I’m one of those people that absolutely hates to be a slave to a medicine bottle, do you know what I mean? Just the thought of any form of dependency drives me up the wall!

So, here is my insanity! I go along just fine, feeling great and on top of the world, so much in fact that I start questioning myself each morning when I take my vitamins and my one little pill for depression. First, I just think about taking that pill every day, then I start thinking about how I have to spend my own money to refill the prescription each month. Back in 1989 when I started on this med, there was no generic choice and I would spend $90+ per month for the prescription. Today, with the generic, it costs me less than $10, but oh no, that is still way too much for something that I probably don’t need! You see where I’m going with this … I start screwing with myself thinking, maybe you can get along just fine if you cut your dosage down, so all of a sudden, I’m taking the med every other day instead of daily. Within about 2 months, I’ve decided that I don’t need to refill that bottle at all, and that is that! I feel great without the med and I’m saving like 10 bucks a month … whoopee! Now Prozac is a drug that only works when it has had some time to built up a level in your blood that becomes beneficial. It also takes about the same amount of time lowering the level until the benefits are gone. In my case, between 2-3 weeks. So, given the cut back for about 8 weeks, then complete abstinence for another 2-3 weeks, and oops, I’m in the shiter again!

Somewhere around the last of May, my last post about The Morning Motivator, I found myself without any drive, no ambition and all I wanted to do was to eat and sleep. Excuses ran rampant and I even began feeling sorry for myself, can you imagine!

So, June 15th I refilled my scrip and by golly, here I am writing again! And like any good crazy man, I tell my self, I’m not going to do that, AGAIN! Yeah, right …

The one thing that puzzles me is this. I have still attended each and every session of TMM since my last post, which was Thursday, May 31st., yet I just couldn’t sit down and put together a post for a day … oh well, today is “Fitting Friday” and isn’t it just “fitting” that I’m writing again! There will be more, later, see you soon …

    Hi Randy,

    I understand your feelings toward “being a slave to the medicine bottle”. Perhaps you could look at it as choosing to be happy and healthy instead. You deserve to be happy, healthy, and productive!

    Very fitting post for a Friday Randy.

    You soooooo much like you should be a broadcaster. I know a DJ that you could be a brother to.

    Webcasts maybe? 😉

    See you Monday!

    Glad to have you back Randy!
