I have a full house this week. Jakes, Jaxon and the three kitties are all home. This morning Jakes and Jaxon were rough housing and there just wasn't enough room in the room for all of us.
I have talked with my Dr about getting off my anti-depression medications. With Jakes out of the house and the stress of dealing with him lower, I think I can handle life without the help of medication. I am the type of person that doesn't want to take any medication if its not necessary. I will take it if I need it. I will wean myself off the meds and if I don't feel like I can handle life, I will go back up on the dosage. But I'd like to try to get off them if possible. There is the chance that I'm not ready yet. I will be smart about this decision and see what happens.
When I told my family that I was going to come off the "happy pills", their first reaction was to make sure I was waiting until after the new year, after Jakes went home after this week. I am glad that I listened to them about waiting a week.
Can you stay upset at those faces?
Tonight we went to dinner with our neighbors and I was reminded why Jakes lives with his Dad. I was kicking around the idea of having Jakes come and stay with me for the summer but after tonight, I don't think so. We'll have to see when summer gets closer.
I am enjoying having Jakes here in a way but I have also gotten used to being on my own with just the animals. So having him here is an adjustment for both of us. Friday will be here before we know it!
