Newsflash: Skindecent saves woman's sanity

Today sucked. I'm out of my antidepressant and for some reason, my Hyphenated Corp. health insurance is suddenly invalid, today was my first day back at Mom's office and I had to do payroll taxes, and the icing on the cake is when I got home and discovered that one of the dogs chewed up at least one of my rubber duckies.

If it hadn't been for my pre-layoff Skindecent order on my front porch, I probably would have totally lost it. As it is, I'm opening it as I listen to the stupid hold music for A(ssholes)E(at your)T(ime and give you)N(othing in return but want)A(ll your money) insurance's so-called "Customer Care" line.

I'm on the verge of tears, as I have been since I left the pharmacy without my Lexapro, but right now, they are more tears of gratitude for the kindness of Marliss, the genius behind Skindecent. Not only did she send samples of the Lush dupes for Sultana and The Olive Branch, she sent me an entire Girlfriend's Stress Relief Kit. Marliss has always provided amazing products and customer service, but this kind of thoughtful detail is truly amazing.

And now, since the insurance person wants the pharmacist to call and the pharmacist is being snarky about not wanting to call, I'm going to go huff bath products and hope that tomorrow is a VAST improvement over today.

Well, one rubber duckie gone just means room for TWO MORE...

*sigh* do not know what to do with chewing dog. I have a peeing cat. Trade? ;)


For what it is worth -- check with your docs to see if adding SAM-E to your pills would be bad (can't think so, but you be sure). It isn't a full fledged anti-depressant, but it does help keep the moods a touch more even and I'll send you some from my next Costco trip. I mean, when you are outa magic pills, that's the WORST time to have to deal with people preventing you from getting your magic pills. So a semi-maybe-magic pill will keep anyone from being killed.
