The Prime Minister here; I want to apologize for my lack of communication over the winter.
I have been treated for depression for about 5 years after a severe episode. My psychiatrist and I had found a good med combination of two pills; celexa at 60mg daily and wellbutrin. Last year, the FDA came out with a recomendation that people not take more than 40 mg of celexa day. My psychiatrist accordingly reduced my dose.
Since then, in addition to the fall and respiratory infection, I have been struggling with increased depressive symptoms and fibromyalgia pain/fatigue. While I am in no danger of doing something I should not, I have having increasing difficulty taking care of my minimum requirements at my job and maintaining my household.
Another thing that happens is that my creative voice gets gagged. I have had several ideas for storylines, but cannot get them down. I am not painting and doing assemblages, etc. I am not going out as much. Those of you who know how much Judaism and my congregation mean to me will realize how bad this is when I say I have not been to synagogue since the High Holidays back in September.
So, know that I continue to follow all of the blogs of beings I have come to know and love. But responding and posting is overwhelming right now and may remain so until I can find a new regime with my doctor. Thank you for your patience and hopefully I will be back soon.

We are so sorry to have been absent from blogspot for so long; the PM has been having a rough winter between med changes, falls and, most recently, a 'killer' respiratory infection. We have been following the updates of those we know and love, but have not been up to doing much posting ourselves. We hope to be back with all of you soon.
