Where Is My Mind?

(You know a blog post is going to be awesome when it begins with this gchat conversation:

Sent at 5:44 AM on Wednesday
 Dan:  sigh
 Sent at 5:58 AM on Wednesday
 Dan:  how's the post coming?
 me:  sorry, i was reading this really intense ghost story
so...not well, i guess.

Jesus Christ...Let's try to move past it.) 

- So that's happening. That's a very real problem in my life right now. It feels like fucking Barbados in my apartment and I'm sweltering despite the fact that it's physically impossible to be any more nude than I am right now. I don't know what to do about it. I mean, buy a fan, I guess, but the thought of getting up, putting layers of clothing on my person, walking to CVS, interacting with human beings, and walking all the way back to my apartment is exhausting. I had to walk to the bathroom to get my phone earlier and by the time I got back to my bed, I might as well have just been doing jazzercise in Dubai for all the sweating and wheezing that was going on. Because it's not just hot in here; it's humid. The air is heavy and wet and dank and horrible. I feel like I'm living in a terrarium. So I just lay here all day trying really, really hard not to move. And wait for someone to feed me crickets. Again: it's a problem.

Ughhhhhh, the battle of Meg vs. Antidepressants has taken an obnoxious turn. As mentioned, I've been on 360mg of Effexor for a little over three and a half years and am currently attempting to wean myself off it. (Fun fact!: 360mg is 10mg over the maximum dosage. I found this out via the Google shortly after my doctor in New York prescribed it to me in 2007, but I never brought it up with him. Wanna know why? Because his office was down the hall from Flyleaf's record label. I swear to God. I didn't ask about my questionable dosage of medication because I was impressed that my doctor's office was down the hall from the record label that represents Flyleaf. And I'm sorry, self, but WHAT KIND OF FLAWED FUCKING LOGIC IS THAT?! I don't even like Flyleaf! And yet I distinctly remember being like, "Oh, shit. Flyleaf. And there's a Dean and Deluca directly next door. Mehhe clearly knows what he's doing. DOO-BE DOO-BE DOO! POPPITY-POPPITY-POP! WHO NEEDS A LIVER?! LA LA LA!" I realize I have an anthropomorphized camo hat and a soft spot in my heart for confederate flags, but it's still shocking how country I am when you get right down to it.) I managed to work my way down to 37.5mg over the last several months without any problems, but I started 25mg last week and it's not going well. I'm withdrawing hardcore, and let me tell you guys somethingEffexor withdrawal is no fun.

One of the many Christ-awful withdrawal symptoms of Effexor (you know, besides brain shivers)
is rage. I swear to god: straight-up 
rage. I sit here in my little humidor and I rage, rage, rage against the dying of the light! Except yesterday, the dying of the light = a brochure I got in the mail for a technical college in Philadelphia. The brochure is for CHI Institute (Franklin Mils campus) and it came addressed to the informal Meg Rowland in a handwritten envelope and had a business card stapled inside with the recruiter's name and phone number highlighted. I was so confused. To my knowledge I hadn't consumed a box of wine and decided to pursue a career in insurance processing (although, to be fair, that wouldn't be completely out of character), so I assumed someone must have put my name on an info request list as a joke. And if mail shenanigans are in play, there's really only one suspectTulane Chris.

Now, under normal circumstances, I probably would have thought to myself, "Ha ha. Oh, Chris! That delightful little 
scamp," and gone on with my day. Unfortunately, that's not what happened. Instead, I grabbed the brochure, raised it heavenwards with a shaking fist and thought to myself, "That son of a bitch! HE DOESN'T THINK I CAN BE A WRITER?! HE THINKS I SHOULD PURSUE THE FINE ART OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATION OR RESIDENTIAL/COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL WIRING?! Well, I'll show him. Oh, I'LL show him. Baha. Ha. HAHAHA. HAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAA!!!" and kind of continued to cackle like that for a few minutes until I thought I was going to pass out from heat stroke and had to take a cold soak in my bathtub with a grape-flavored Freezepop until I calmed down. BUT THEN...I retaliated. 

About an hour later when I was feeling somewhat less, you know,
 crazy, I thought I'd confront Chris and see if he was indeed the culprit. Aaaaaaaand as it turns out, he was not. In retrospect, I probably should have been an adult about the whole thing and confirmed that fact before I retaliated. Which is another way of saying: Chris, I'm very sorry that I gave all of your private information to the Church of Scientology and told them on your behalf that you've quote, "got more questions than Catholicism will ever have answers." **~~~~Love you, biffles!!!1!~~~~** ;) ;) ;)

- I made this image of the DC flag with NBC news 4 anchorman Jim Vance heads instead of stars for no reason other than I just genuinely feel more comfortable living in a world where it exists:

I'm a hardcore Vance-head. My sister and I like to play a game called, "What Do You Think Jim Vance is Doing Right Now?" It's fairly self-explanatory. We get together and occasionally turn to the other and pose the question, "What do you think Jim Vance is doing right now?" More times than not he's playing golf or doing sudoku. If you catch me when I'm in an especially good mood, he's listening to Waka Flocka and writing in his dream journal about what a bitch Doreen Gentzler is.

- We've officially reached the point in the summer where I give up on trying to look attractive when I leave my apartment! I've retired my blow dryer, flat iron, and genitals until October. We're
all excited.

- Tulane Chris' full name is Chris Turner-Neal, but I said it really fast the other day and it accidentally came out Chris
Turtle-Neal. This small mistake has changed my life in ways that another human being never could. I can not express to you how funny the concept of Chris as a cartoon turtle going about his daily business is to me. Chris Turtle-Neal loading the dishwasher. Chris Turtle-Neal going to Wawa to buy an energy drink and scratch-offs. Chris Turtle-Neal avoiding eye contact in the elevator. Chris Turtle-Neal writing an angry letter to the postmaster general about not receiving his phone bill on time. Chris Turtle-Neal making a fresh batch of Crystal Lite. Chris Turtle-Neal all pissed at me because I turned him over to the Scientologists. It's just never not funny to me. Mostly because in my head, it looks like this:

The Asinine and Completely Realistic Adventures of Chris Turtle-Nealwhat will he do next?! (Answer: drink port, play Xbox, and somehow work a joke about the Battle of Verdun into casual conversation. God damn I love him.)

Well, this post fucking sucked and I don't have a conclusion (although I
did write a song called "Who Needs a Conclusion?" to the tune of the 1981 Men at Work song "Who Can It Be Now?", which I won't subject you to), so I'm going to go punch holes in the wall until I fall asleep. XOXO!


Rachel, your sister wife (to be specified because there a lot of rachels up in here) said...

hahaha. I think jim Vance could also be earring shopping. When are we doing lunch as promised!!!

GAH, I know. I'm driving to Philly tomorrow to pick up Chris to do a bunch of investigations and work this week/weekend, then next week I'm going home to help with Diane's surgery recovery, so the week after that?? This feels like it would be more appropriate in an email, but meh. Here we are.

Daniel said...

I'm really glad I both start and end this post (the conclusion was my idea!)

How did this post not include anything about the fact that Dallas is coming back on the air?

And is the reason you're going of the antidepressants because you don't have health insurance to pay for them?? I don't understand why?? Did I miss a post??

Anonymous said...

ooh and ps if it is because of health insurance what happened to the whole marrying someone for it?? one of your best ideas!

I was on Effexor for about two years. I remember when they finally took me off it and they didn't do a very grand job at weaning me off it. So I was a box of crazy for at least a good month after that. This comment doesn't have much of a point beside, I feel ya, Meg.

P.s. Living without air condition is more cruel than any of the egyptian plagues.

Mike K said...

I've given up offering my really great health insurance to Meg...sigh...I guess it wasn't meant to be.

I think we, loyal 2birds1blog readers, need to start a "Get Meg Laid" fundraiser, because it's clear she needs some action.

allison said...

Hope the cold winds start a-blowin' on ya soon, Meg!

Did Mike K just offer to bone Meg? I think he did.

Anonymous said...

You're so damn funny. Another flipping amazing post.

Mike K said...

Well if she won't marry me, it's the least I can do to help!

Margo said...

I might actually need you to blow up that Vance Flag to real-flag size and send it to me. Immediately. I love him and his earring and his motorcycle.

That post may have been borderline pointless, but it had me cackling out loud all the way through. Well done, sir.

As for the Effexor withdrawal, I feel ya on that one, brain shivers and all. And yet, here I am again, 4 years later, back on it again. I discovered when I was withdrawing from Zoloft (no brain shivers but very unpleasant flu-like symptoms) that tapering down and then switching to Prozac and then tapering off Prozac works like a charm. It has a longer half life, so you ease out of it with little to no symptoms. I've heard it works for Effexor too. Ask your doc. It was a godsend for me, because I wondered if I'd ever be done with Zoloft.

The Genius Savant said...

I think most of the guys who regularly read the blog would also make Mike K's offer. #JustSayin'

Rosy said...

Gah... Effexor. I almost couldn't finish the post because I was getting a shadowy sense memory of a withdrawal headache and nearly vomited. But finish I did. Who needs a conclusion bah na na naaaa...

Anonymous said...

Citolopram is better than all of the anxiety meds people listed on here...but still causes horrible withdrawals. Oh wait, I quit cold turkey. My bad. I also had withdrawals from never being consistent with my Adderall. You know you have ADD when you get out your medicine but then are too distracted to take it.

...rage, rage, rage against the dying of the light!

Bonus points for the subtle Kerouac reference, Meist. And bonus points to me for catching it.

I only play "What is that really hot dude who plays Eric on "True Blood" doing right now?" And the answer is always: frantically searching for me on the Google so he can come to my house and declare his amazing love for me. I find that image helps a lot with the rage.

themajessty said...

I can sympathize - it's sweltering over here too.

Yes, it's Dylan Thomas. It's also used in On The Road, if I'm not mistaken. Which I may be.

I LOVE JIM VANCE. I'm so glad someone else feels this way. More than once I have daydreamed about me becoming friends with him and/or getting a full-name shoutout over the air. I want to live in Vancelandia.
