No doc knows **** about mental deppression. I will be my own doc and start calling the shots. First dump all meds. Second just take BP Blood pessure) not (bi polar) med and Paxel with ativan whan needed. I bet it works. What you think?

Jikan.....I too, suffer from chronic pain from a bad form of arthritis. I understand about the irritability. They can take my pain away, but I am left so doped up I can't function, so I just try to keep my lousy moods under wraps. Very difficult at times, isn't it? People are always asking me if I'm OK and sometimes it's all I can do not to snap their heads off and yell "try living with constant pain for a few days and see if YOU have a big smile on your face!" But I don't. We just do the best we can with the hand we've been dealt, eh?
Peace

tammy said thanks for the happy birthday! yea anxiety is so strange you can be having a great time, and just out of nowhere here comes our old buddy anxiety. so strange ain't it? and even though we know most of the time it is just panic we can't help but wonder 'what if' then it turns into a disaster.i think the what if's are what makes it stay so long at a time.

Good Morning! Yes, I made another post, wish it was under different circumstances. After a few months of no issues, other than nervousness, I had an attack on Sunday. It has made me feel like I took ten steps back! But what I will say is that, it hasn't made me avoid going out or working, so I guess that is good. I had a Dr. appointment yesterday, I have been having some headaches, and a tingling sensation on the left side of my head and ear, so I am having an MRI tomorrow to check that all out. I have also scheduled an appointment with another therapist, I liked my last one, but I am not sure that she was the right one for me and what I have going on. So things are moving along, and I will be happy to have some answers soon, on these daily headaches. My gut tells me it is the medications!

Unfortunately, I started smoking again.   I had a wild mood swing on Sunday and lost my temper terribly.  I thought about drinking alcohol, but luckily I just went for a cigarette, although not a good thing, I really flew off the handle.  I am looking to get back to work, being so heavily medicated for so long i just couldn't get a job and keep it (although I have always had trouble in the work force) I don't know where I am right now, but I'm trying to deal with this stuff, and I know that my anxiety comes and gos like the wind, but I'll never know unless I try w/o medication.  I think maybe they misdiagnosed me (not sure yet).  I really appreciate you asking how I'm doing, I guess I have always been one to withdraw sometimes.  It really helps to come out into the open about smoking,

Hi Michael,  Thanks you are very considerate and kind!  I'm hanging on in there trying to keep up with the PMA.  I saw my pdoc yesterday and she has prescribed me carbamazapine, she is supportive of the alternative treatment I am following of multi-vitamins and omega 3 alongside a healthy diet.  Today is my quit day for smoking and so far so good, I am using patches to help with the withdrawal.  Hope everything is going ok with you.  Helen

if you would like to hear some of my songs if you go to.

www.anxietytribe.com/tommylee333

that is also a good sight for people with anxiety, i told several people here about it and they love it. but if you go there on my page there is a jukebox and if you scan down the song list at the bottom of the list it says tommy lee register and they are some of the songs from my cd. i played all the instruments on it,wrote all the songs and did all the singing.
you can also see my wifes video if you go to.

www.myspace.com/tammyrenee333

and her video is on the top right side of her page.

hi Michael, curiosity killed the cat! :) Yes, I was randomly reading the forum for Anxiety and read your response you sent to Chris regarding his stomach anxieties/panic attacks so it was act of choice and reason.  Of course, you can't reach everyone in the world, but as I stated, in life's journey it's a wonderful experience to just reach out if you can.  You happen to be the first contact.  Namiste.  Katy

Hi Michael,  I was thinking of you just the other day.  I hadn't seen you post and I know that you tend to help out here so often.  I forget about these little notes you can send.  I'm doing ok.  I was actually so sad last week, I was frightening myself.  Due to that, this week is going better.  Work today was awlful, but came home to my oldest daughter who gave me a surprise of having the house spotless and several little extras to go along with it.  I must say she has made my day. (being a single working mom, my trying to get some help around here has been like having another chore)  So to come home to that and then to sit down here and see your note, it really made me smile!  I hope you're doing well and had an enjoyable day today, I'll be looking for your journal...Tracy

Does that mean irritation = sanity?  The times I want to relax and do nothing are usually the times when it gets really noisy or something has to be fixed.  I read a lot and find that relaxing; same with some TV.  What is bouldering?

My mood stating I am leaving is a bit disconcerting.  Why?  There are a lot of reasons for leaving - dentist, family problems, etc. I didn't say I was leaving for good or leaving to hurt myself.  I had a really bad day today and I was leaving to go and have a nap.  Leaving doesn't necessitate something harmful.
  
In the past, my Profile has said, "lonewolf thinks nobody really understands."   I still feel this way.  I have always liked you, ever since you came to MH.  Let me assure you I am not psychotic and that sometimes the people here can be overwhelming and I have to take a break.

I appreciate your concern.

Hi Michael, thank you for your post.  I have been told that I am bipolar, I'm just seeing how I feel without the medications.  I have been feeling more emotional, I couldn't hold a job with my medications constantly changing and now I just can't get a job.  I feel so ashamed.

went to the doctor today he said he thought the tightness in my chest and the hard to breath might be my heart. you see i have a small blockage in the right artery of my heart. he gave me some nitro glycerine. said if it happened again take one . in about 2 monthe they want to do a stent. but i think it could be my anxiety because i've had this before it just lasted longer this time. been working on some videos with my band i have a band with 5 girls and me. it will be about 7 to 10 months before i start to release any of them. hope you are doing well. God bless!

I can't remember what I said  = (  My total income is just over $700.00/mth,  we get a drug card and dental card.  The amount of money - I don't know what to say.  After paying rent, phone/internet and a bit of food, there is nothing left over.  Some people know how to "get around the system" but I don't.  The drug card doesn't pay for a lot of meds; there have been articles in the paper about that.  Same with dental.  Last summer I had some dental work and Disability didn't cover it so I made an arrangement with the dentist about payment.  I still need more work done.  It does make depression and anxiety worse and it's not just me.

Wouldn't mind winning the lottery  = )

Where is Brisbane?  Most of my family lives in California.

hi my friend, how are you today? is your back feeling better? i have gad so the anxiety is with me on some level all the time. sometimes like today though it's worse. i figured my blood pressure would be through the roof but when i checked it, it was fine120/78 pulse 71. i need to get out of the house and do some shopping but i hate to go anywhere by myself, so i must have myself worked up about that. i think i'm more mad at myself for not being able too. do you go through this also? thanks so much for leaving me a note, your such a nice person. take care. corena
