Tips for Better Mental Health
and who couldn't use a bit more of that?
It's a beautiful day in Boulder, Colorado. Crisp blue skies, golden sunshine, hyperwhite clouds drifting way up high. And I'm in my soon-to-be-forclosed-upon condo bondage with all the blinds drawn, drinking coffee and taking the maximum recommended dosage of Effexor XR® from Wyeth®, which I just now learned has a website specifically devoted to this amazing seratonin-and-norepinephrine-boosting antidepressant. I was a little disappointed that the site doesn't describe the North American distribution deal it cut with the Medellin Cartel (a mistake in my view, as this was an absolutely brilliant business move).
I was, however, surprised to learn that, in addition to having my depression antied, I am also undergoing a radical sex change (see graphic, above right). I had suspected as much for some time, but it was a great relief to be officially informed. How else to explain my sudden need for a 38D sports bra?
Yes, well, all pharmaceuticals have their little side effects, and I can't say this one is entirely unwelcome. Given Boulder's overall gender-preference profile, I find that women are now paying much more attention to me. Before Effexor XR®, they never gave me a second look. But it was tips of a different sort I promised you, and tips you shall have. I pass along the following remarks from the Wyeth product site, having found them unusually insightful and compassionate towards those of us who suffer from depression. Do take a moment to scan the following and let me know if you don't agree.
