  1. You'd certainly feel it if the building didn't have sufficient damping built in.
  2. I wonder who would win in a fight to the death: a kangaroo or a howler monkey?
  3. Extremely anxious. In the middle of an unpleasant task that has to be done or else it gets even more unpleasant tomorrow.
  4. I live out in the sticks, but our interlibrary loan system is state wide. I can even get books from college and university libraries.
  5. Well, I'm not gloating because I know there will be a round 2. We can only hope that the bill in round 2 will be more favorable and will force the conservatives to compromise.
  6. The ultra-conservatives wanted to completely gut Obamacare while the more moderate Republicans wanted to retain some features such as coverage of maternity expenses, coverage of pre-existing conditions, etc. And even some moderates didn't want deep Medicaid cuts. They are at loggerheads and will have to compromise if they want to replace Obamacare, but the ultra conservatives are known not to want to compromise on anything.
  7. Anxious and sleepy
  8. This just goes to show that the Republicans were just anti-Obama and didn't really have a plan of their own. The so-called Trump bill was cobbled together at the last minute and was so bad that even Republicans themselves couldn't support it. The anti-Obamacare rhetoric was just blind hatred against Obama.
  9. I just noticed the Tylenol 4. As has been said, be VERY careful with it. It is addictive and if you take too much Tylenol your liver will be shot. It's not a med to play around with. Neurontin, on the other hand, is not metabolized by the liver and is useful for both anxiety and pain,
  10. Well, Neurontin is often used as a non-benzo med for anxiety so if you have a lot of anxiety then it makes sense. ETA: You should have no liver problems with Neurontin. It's not like Depakote or Tegretol.
  11. 1. Citalopram is the only SSRI that works for me, and I've tried them all. I doubt I would find another. 2. A cross taper is fine, and it works, but I found that even if I just switched from one SSRI to another even without tapering the withdrawal was not bad. It was only when I switched from an SSRI to a completely different type of med or just went off my SSRI that I had problems. You should be fine going from SSRI to SSRI. I'm not a doctor to judge, but I think, in my non-medical way, your doctor is doing things right.
  12. I see no reason why 9 mg would be too much Invega that it would give you a really hard time coming off as long as you came off slowly and not all at once. Though to be honest, I came off 4 mg of Risperdal (parent of Invega) cold turkey and didn't really suffer much withdrawal. Testimonials are just that - testimonials. They aren't studies and they don't give you an idea of the statistics involved. People who have problems are more motivated to come online and bitch about it than people who have no problems at all. This is the bias of the internet. Also, keep in mind that some of the people are anti-psychiatry and they post testimonials in order to demonize meds.
