Chez, We ALL need to moan every now and then... It can be very hard on relationships when family comes to visit. Remember though that you have support here. I know I am new and I am not very good with knowing the right things to say... (Part of the reason I have no friends I guess...) But I can say this... I can tell by your responses that you are a strong person... Keep your focus...
I think my appointment went very well! He also said he has heard good things about the new therapist I am seeing next week! DOUBLE BONUS!!! He took me off of Risperidone and put me on wellbutrin and lamictal... Not sure of the doses yet cause it is at the pharmacy so I will post after the pharmacy... I had to come home for a few to cool off before heading back to the pharmacy and grocery shopping...
All in all, I am trying to be very positive today as I am positive the med changes WILL help... They will they will they will! And having a new therapist... All good things... Right???
I hope all are doing well today and staying cool!View Thread
The weather here in IN has been very hot... We only have air conditioning when sleeping in our upstairs bedroom so, being downstairs during the day is rough. I will admit it has made me quite crabby and hubby and I have had a few words here and there. Fortunately, we shrug it off pretty quick as he knows I do not handle heat very well.
Like others have said, you are on the home stretch. I do not know much about you as I am new here but from the responses of others here, they are here to support you in this endeavor. Just so as you know, I am here too. We all have to be here for each other.
Taking 6 of those is a lot from what I know of that med. I as well as others have said hope you got some rest and just keep looking towards the trip home... It is not that far off...
On a kinda good note, you may get some rain today... They are calling for rain north of I-70... (I am south of there so no rain for us) Down side is that means humidity and they said the storms could be severe...
Stay safe and give a shout out here if you need anything!View Thread
I got to less than a half a pack a day a couple years ago, but... Lately, I find any excuse I can to smoke. I am only allowed to smoke inside if I am in the bathroom, so... I do not mind drinking a lot of water cause that means I pee more which means I can smoke more. I like to sit outside a lot cause again, I can smoke more... I like to take the dogs out more cause again, I can smoke more...
I gout out my e-cigs the other day and found my charger for it so... If all goes well with the psychiatrist and therapist, I hope to feel comfortable enough to try and quit... I know I need to, but, I am just not ready right now. And with Sarcoid, Asthma etc... Smoking is the worst thing I could do...
Ok, ok... I will admit this about smoking... I feel I do not have the guts to try and commit suicide, but sometimes... Well... I feel that smoking is a way of shortening my life and ending the pain.
There... I admitted it to someone... Ugh... View Thread
My husband is truely my rock and whenever he can, he always makes sure I get what I need. Today is his day off and it has been so nice having him home today. He has a GREAT Employer and their assistance program is awesome!
My appointment is at 10:40 am but depending on how it goes, I may stop by and see my Grandma afterwards. She has like 50 grandkids, great grandkids, and great great grandkids and she says I am the only one that comes to see her on a regular basis so I try to keep up my end of that as much as I can. We all know she will not be around forever and she is truely the nicest person I have ever known in my life! So, IF my appointment goes well, I will visit with her, but, if not, I will probably come straight home.
I spoke to my youngest son earlier today who happens to live in WA and lately he is all over trying to get us to move out there. Today he told me he knows a woman with only one lung that lives out there and she does fine so he thinks I would as well! (I have both lungs but I have Sarcoidosis, Asthma, Allergies, & COPD so I have a lot of breathing problems. And yes... I am a VERY VERY VERY bad girl... I am also a smoker Pittifull I know...)
I will definitely post how it goes tomorrow!
Geezers... I cannot get over how nice everyone is here and how friendly everyone is! I am SO GLAD I found you all!
So glad to hear you are happy with your psychiatrist. I hope I like him
This last therapist, I only saw twice and was DEFINITELY not a right fit for me!
That IS hot for MI. When we lived there I do not think it ever got that hot there... We are in IN right now and this is just miserable. When we lived in AZ, we came to expect it... Not that it made it any better though... I got sick of hearing "But it's a dry heat"... I did not care... It was STILL hot!!!View Thread
So, my husband employer helped me find a new therapist to try AND... Gave me 6 appointments at no expense to me! Whew... I hope this one works out! I cannot bear the thought of going to another one like the last one!
I have my first Psychiatrist appointment tomorrow... I am a little nervous but know I need to do this.
I hope you are all staying cool today... It is 106 here today and I am MISERABLE and trying really hard not to get irritable Sad part is, we are not supposed to get out of the 100 temp days for days yet! UGH!!!View Thread
I have to second the above... Chez1 and Alaska_Mommy have been awesome to me today and the other day andI have only just got started here. It really seems to be a good community and I can only hope to be as positive as they are... View Thread
