Ep. 79 Midlife crisis or medication change?

The Harvest Moon has Meg taking a turn for the worst. She explains to Casey that she’s having a pre-birthday mid-life crisis. Or, it might be that Meg’s doctor is tapering her down from Zoloft to begin a new medication for anxiety/depression...Casey thinks it’s probably that.  Besides freaking out because she turns 40 in 82 hours from recording this episode; middle school motherhood is getting really hard (not just the math, but the block scheduling and learning an instrument.) Meg’s proud of herself because she’s still able to come up with a High Five Moment despite all of this: her kids, who have all the tech gear, are choosing “worm on a string” and these weird “fidget popper…?” things instead. Casey and Meg are baffled by what the girls are into - yet proud to raise daughters that aren’t obsessed with the internet and being online. Meg also rants about overstimulation at the gas station - ust listen to that part: there aren’t words. Enjoy! Show links: Teens Are Once Again Losing It Over “Worm On A String” How the Pop It!
