I've had a great 2 days, not manic or depressed, just 'normal'!! I took the kids school shopping yesterday to several different stores with only mild anxiety. We got all the clothes and supplies they need for school and boy was it expensive...lol.
Today, I got up early and had a home visit with my daughter's case manager. I signed up for a 'community based' service to help me navigate the ways of the newly diagnosed ADHD. Got the pets to the vet, paid some bills, put on real clothes for the last 2 days, cooked, and enjoyed.
I bought a baakbag, my school supplies, and most of my school books without feeling sick to my stomach either!!
Of course. It's one of the first stories out of my bag when talk turns to embarrasing incidents!! Yeah, I was mortified but now it just seems like one of those funny 'Murphy's Law' kind of thing. I'm one of the lucky ones that seems to find an embarrasing moment anywhere.View Thread
Those doctors really don't know what medication does to an unborn baby b/c it's illegal for them to experiment on pregnant women. Sometimes, it takes years to see some drugs are just bad for pregnant women. It upsets me to see those ads for Zoloft birth defects b/c I took Zoloft 14 years ago for the first 3 months of my first pregnancy. The only reason I stopped is b/c of severe nausea. My daughter, thankfully, is fine.
I guess you could turn it into a kinda pro-life thing. The doctor trying to treat the living rather than the unborn. Maybe it is a cover for malpractice, meaning if you were to go 'out of your head' and hurt yourself or someone else.
I agree, any drug during pregnancy carries risk. If I were ever to get pregnant again (however unlikely), I'd stop taking my drugs.View Thread
Here's a laugh if you need another. Once upon a time ago, I was a photographer for Olan Mills. I have a family of 4 in the room with me and I'm trying to get them settled. The dad was soooooo hot!!! Well, I got everyone in place and I'm trying to get the 3 year old to look at me. I got the stuffed animal out and was shaking it when my bra strap broke, in front of hot dad and his unamused wife. I had to do the rest of the session trying to hold up the cup of my bra and praying like nobody's business that the other would just hold on. I was so mortified!!View Thread
I've also experienced this although not to the degree you describe. In fact, I was at a pampered chef party recently and asked if a basting brush could go in the microwave. I really meant to say dishwaser. While the pc salesperson explained why it could not go in the microwave b/c of a metal band, I wondering why she's talking about microwaves. After a few mins. it dawned on me that I said the wrong thing. I talked to my pdoc and got an MRI but they didn't find anything wrong. My pdoc changed my meds around and it has helped some. Be safe, get it checked out!!View Thread
This isn't a pair of shoes I've walked in but I would, if you will, like to offer my 2 cents.
I believe virginity is a gift you give to someone whom you care about or love. It is a gift only you can give when you feel you are ready, not taken by force or coersion. The power to give something in the name of love can not be taken from you.
I had ECT when I thought I had another medical issue. I'd been diagnoses with Parkinson's Disease at the time (thankfully, that's no longer the case) and knew that at some point in the future my Parkinson's meds would be competing with my BP meds. I had several treatments and while I'm not 'cured' it did allow me to get off some of my meds and lessened the chances of interactions.
I'm wondering if anyone else had ECT or if you've ever considered it? If you had it, did it work for you?View Thread
