Congratulations! Time for a celebration...maybe i can make it too right now i dont feel like i will make. its been 2 weeks but i will keep on glad you made it good luck gloria
Hi Therese you obviously got the wrong end of the stick I'm not self righteous at all !! I've had a rough ride too coming off effexor cold turkey and now just saying slow is best !!! Lorraine
Just a quick note to say hi! I relapsed....I lasted 9 months then started my first full time permanent job as a teacher. I couldn't cope with the stress and anxiety.
Thank you for everything!
Please let me know how you get on.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Please be my friend.
Go for it - try a dummy, its great to suck on.
Anytime, and you're very welcome.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for taking time to read and response to my posting..I will keep trying..Have a nice day..
You deserve a big bear hug! Thank you for replying to my posting on the forum. I have replied to you. Wish we could all feel positive about not taking medication. I accept now I will take it for the rest of my life. I feel well now, and don't want that to change. I have Effexor to thank for that.
Hi, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones, no side effects from either. Some things take a little longer...if you know what I mean, but otherwise it's doing the job, which has not been an easy one.
Always good to hear from another member!
I'm thrilled it gave you a boost. I do so remember those feelings, big time. They were devastating and seemed insurmountable. I'm here to tell you they are not. Life is and can be amazing you know. One day we see black and no hope and out of nowhere someone does something that lifts you and things get on a roll. Other times of course...... but we already know enough about that don't we? All the best for today and let's hope it is the start of new things for you.
Thank you for everything! Thank you for your message. Yes my dear little dog was unwanted, but I love him to bits and would not part with him for the world.
You're very welcome. I'm always here if you need to talk.
Thanks! I've been doing other things since my meds started to work. Been helping my daughter to move out of our house. Lost a daughter gained a room. My son quickly took it over and we moved our ferret cage in his old room. Our ferrets need a play room. That's another work in progress project.
I sub many art teachers. Subbing should roll in very soon. I need the money. I took a whole month off in November so my meds would settle in because I didn't want a repeat when I was on that mood stablizer in early Spring. Took a trip to see my mom in Massachusetts. I had fun with hubby but now I'm broke.
Thanks thinking about me.
I was reading one of your post....what do you teach?
Thank you for your comments therese83..you will also be in my prayers to be able to overcome all things with help from above...Hope this day brings a ray of sunshine into your life...
Just a quick note to say hi! She is doing wonderful. She was kind of quite for a couple of days, but now she's back to normal. Thanks for asking!!!
Thank you for the reply, makes me feel better hearing from others who understand! i think i'm going to look into finding a doctor who can diagnose me and starting getting my life and moods together! unfortinitely i know i'm going to bounce back and forth between picking up the phone and actually doing it!
A great deal of harm was done at this end though. Hilda having stage four lung cancer, being correctly supportive is something pretty important to me right now.. worrisome, for sure. Some say don't discuss it with the patient, some say don't hide the fear. That's okay, I'll get over it, I'll just keep doing my best. Actually, since my Hildy is also Hispanic, that "he's probably a mexican anyway" comment ensures I won't worry too much about the opinions of that particular group. Hopefully your day is progressing well.
No sweetie - thank YOU for all the work you're doing! :-D
Hi Therese, how are you doing?Thanks for your note.
No need to thank me - YOU'RE the one doing the actual work, so give yourself a big pat on the back. :-)
here is the link to help you both.
this one is marriage
thanks! lol normal no way, dont like it any how!! I'm a @ home mum of 3 little ones!! my sanity is on weekends mostly when I can run away and do things I like! I just learned that I have asp. and my son maybe. Its a big weight off my shoulders!!
I don't think so, she is obviously showing signs, plus it runs in the family. As well she has posted in a different community regardng OC. Even if she stays on it temporarily it might help. She has a therapist
. I'll paste her post. I'm glad to read people's comments and see that i'm not the only going through all of these things. :). I suppose at one point or another, everyone has problems with anxiety. But for a while now, mine have been extreme. They've driven me to major depression, mental breakdowns, and suicidal thoughts. I'm going to look into medication. I wonder if my anxiety is a chemical imbalance in my brain, or, something i'm just struggling with at this point in my life.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thank-you so much. We have done some research on other diagnoses, but really don't get anywhere with a doctor who is not willing to do the same. She has a lets wait and see in six months attitude, but in the mean time this person is on medication that may not need to be prescribed.
Thank you! Merry Christmas!! Please keep me updated on your pup's progress. Too bad the natural diet didn't work for him, at least he is getting the help he needs. Abby is now a happy kitty :)
Thanks for speaking up regarding people's english being criticized. I have a degree in English Literature but who the heck am I to tell people how they write. If I don't understand something I will read the post again and again, and if I still don't understand it, I will ask the person in a private message. Anyway, thanks for making the point too. We all come here in a fragile state, not to have our writing critiqued. Cheers, Toby
some folks are so stuck in what they are going through, they lash out, I'm guess that's why she did that. No excuse though. I'm always one to stick up for others, you have a right to post regardless of your first language. Mine is french, though, being in canada, I don't use it anymore, so it would hard for me to write it these days. Know your words are just as important!
Hi Terese! Thanks for your note. I am glad to hear you are feeling so well. I am feeling a lot better than I was the other day. I am starting a new anti-psychotic tomorrow that is new from the U.S. Unlike Risperidone, it won 't lower my metabolism, or increase my cholesterol. The only hitch is that I have to pay for it myself ($361 per month). That is a lot of money for me, but I am going to give it a try. I really like my psychiatrist. She is very nice and empathic. I am glad to hear you like yours too. I still need to exercise more. My doctor says if I get in more workouts then I can reduce my Effexor a bit. Do you watch your caffeine intake by the way? Seasons Greetings by the way. I bet Vienna is very pretty this time of year!
