Lupron Depot- Month 4

Month 4… It began on Monday, July 6th! Almost halfway done now.

I think that now because my body has gotten (more) used to the therapy, my many minor symptoms aren’t playing as large, or at least seemingly large, a role as they did in earlier months. What is now troubling me is my long-lost friend: depression. At first, I assumed it was severe fatigue; until I spoke with my doctor and realized I’ve just been experiencing I guess a different kind of depression and therefore I didn’t recognize it. Because of this, I feel like it’s gotten harder to continue with my normal day-to-day activities and tasks! This Lupron is just plain exhausting!! I am so excited that I am over halfway done because I don’t think I could handle any more time.


Sadly, I will not be able to afford to stay in Tuscaloosa County with my doctor that I adore because I never found a job that paid more than $11/hour (not enough to pay the rent/bills, buy groceries, and pay loans). On Saturday, July 25th, I left to move back in with my parents (hopefully very temporarily) in their home in the northern suburbs of Chicago. I packed all my belongings that would fit into my old Toyota minivan nicknamed the “Blue Bomber”, and made the 13-hour long trip from Alabama in a car without air conditioning. Next step: finding a job and a new doctor, while putting up with my symptoms and dealing with the fam.♡

  1. OH man. 1st…the exhaustion was overwhelming! Secondly, the depression!! OMG. I was NOT expecting that from my Lupron. Nobody told me it may be comin’ and it hit like a ton of bricks! I am so sorry to hear it’s affecting you, too. But, know that it will fade after the meds are out of your system. There’s light at the end of the tunnel!
