...the scale to measure it the last time he checked to a 7 today. Not good. He is going to prescribe something if it's not better in the 3 weeks until I talk to him again. Daughter having a friend over tonight. She hasn't seen her friends in 4 months
Luvox was a very unfun medicine for me. What are you taking that is causing TD of you don't mind me asking? That's pretty serious! Are there no alternatives that wouldn't cause it? Clozapine is one that does to mind.
I've been on Clozapine for well over a year now. The TD started a long time ago. I've been on so many meds that it's hard for me to tell what started it. We had slowly lowered my Clozapine & now he thinks the higher dose was hiding the TD.
...them returning to school. This happens every year but it's amplified by a million with them being out since mid March & all the COVID sh*t they are going to have to deal with.
Thanks for the hug, Manfred!
...is always rough after the normal summer break but they've been home since March due to Coronavirus. BF doesn't ha e a clue about what they'll do with school. It's gonna be impossible to keep everything sanitized, socially distance, & so much more.
Thanks for the hug, Robert!
...checked her email for a verification. I never look at her email & it just so happened she had started the day before. I asked her why she didn't tell me & she said she knew where the pads were. 😆
Gosh she really sounds like she has her head on her shoulders.
I definitely wish that I had a mom to bond and tell me about my period though. So maybe there's probably much more room there.
Thanks, Lenny, & thanks for the hugs, Pandas. 💚
Luvox was so trippy and hazy for me it was like I was in a constant state of doing shrooms. It was awful...
Sorry to hear that, mik. It was definitely what was causing the dizziness & anxiety. I feel so much better after just a couple lowered dose days. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
💜💜💜 your daughter sounds so cool
Aw! Thanks, Alicia. That makes me happy. She actually is pretty damn cool!
I hope you get the adequate help/ diagnosis soon ❤️
Thanks, Lenny! They called back & we are lowering the Luvox he had raised. If it doesn't help, he's having me reduce my Lamictal. Fingers crossed it works!
Very cool. Yes definitely fingers crossed. I just started titrating lamictal this past March. I'm kind of seeing a difference now. But I'm still wondering if there's anything for those severe moments. You know?
I've been on the same dose of Lamictal for 13 years. All kinds of meds came & went. Hopefully lowering the Luvox will help. I can barely stand this!
Thanks for the hugs, Pandas. 💚
That's so nice! Very happy for you.
Thanks, Alicia! She's been in my life for 15 years & the majority of those were not pleasant. I'm learning to just ignore her ridiculousness.
Yay. Sounds like a change. Progress. X
That's great Manda! COVID has some perks if we search for them!
Thanks, ladies! xx
Thankful to have my sister & childhood friend who were there for the WHOLE mess that started all my disorders.
Thank you, my wonderful Panda friends. 💚
She said daughter doesn't even know reality. I'm still so fired up. Thankfully I was able to talk to my sister & she helped a lot. They are selfish alcoholics that chose their dream life over her children.
Thanks for the hug, Manfred. I can't stop obsessing over this. I don't talk to my therapist until Tuesday. I don't know how I'll make it till then!
so sorry you have to experience this. oh the bright side, you are 100% right and they are wrong.
Thanks, corrado. It is nice to know I'm right. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas. 💚
Try journalling or if journalling is too difficult, sometimes I try to draw how I feel. Or even just draw out the words!
That's a good idea, KT. I haven't journaled in such a long time. It has helped me through so much stuff. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
...waking up around 6-7AM & feeling like I could stay up, but always lay back down. Have had the motivation to do chores. Feeling bored with life. Hope I'm not becoming manic.
I think we could all talk to you forever! But what a great thing to hear from your therapist!
Aw! Thanks, Al. That's sweet of you to say. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! ❤️
Well done! How was your pie?:)
It was amazing! The crust wasn't pretty but I'd say it was a good first shot. Going to make another one tonight because I still have half of the dough I made. Daughter wasn't too big of a fan though.
I've missed you, Albertine! Hope you are well. xx
