  1. I'm pretty sure a bullet has worse side effects than whatever this may potentially have. This is a treatment that will be used once more conventional options have been exhausted, similar to ECT which is itself known for having shitty lasting side effects. If you haven't been repeatedly hospitalized for suicidal depression, you are most likely not a candidate for this treatment.
  2. A few users have recently reported problems logging in. If that's happening to anyone, I apologize for the inconvenience. I tried to find a short term solution that wouldn't break everything else and failed. I'm working on rebuilding everything on a new server with new versions of everything and hope to have us migrated by the end of the week. My number one priority is to make sure I don't leave y'all with something less functional than we have right now so it's taking a little bit of time to make sure I don't screw anything up too badly.
  3. Yup, very much so. https://www.epilepsy.com/connect/forums/living-epilepsy-adults/morning-seizures-after-drinking

    Can't do advanced searches

    I've been working on it and will try and have everything working soon. For now you can try this to use google to search the whole site: https://www.lifewire.com/google-search-one-website-1616499
  5. Is it sustained release or IR? A crash at the end of the day with IR stimulants is common. My mood usually really tanks for an hour or two after that. You might want to try a sustained release preparation that wears off more gradually.
  6. That was my regular dose for years so you're probably OK.
  7. There's also this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin_shock_therapy
  8. More general searches should work but if you get really specific it might time out before returning results.
  9. I am pretty sure I know the cause of that and hopefully will be able to fix it soon.

    SSRI time to kick in?

    I generally wait at least a month between dose increases. It varies a lot from med to med too. Prozac notoriously takes forever.
  11. I've still got this thing running on Wheezy, the Debian extended long term support branch. I've got to upgrade all the way to Stretch which involves major apache changes as well as the MySQL to MariaDB transition before I can upgrade to the new major version of Invision. I don't want to put a lot of work into a chat solution if I'm going to have to redo a couple months later when I do the other upgrades. I'm looking at some very half-assed temporary possibilities as well. My PNurse currently won't give me more than 8 hours worth of Adderall a day and I've got some other serious stuff going on my life that I'm having to with as well as getting this thing to where it should be. I can't really hire anyone else to work on it because the damn thing is over ten years old and littered with that many years worth of cruft and kludges. I'm getting a MRI of both my left hand and elbow next week. I'll know a few days after that if steroid injections are a possible short term solution. I only have two working fingers on my left heand so obviously, I have to do something. I'm hoping to get one of the self-hosted Blab! flavors to work with IPB. If not, I may just pay for it. Comet Chat would be stupid easy to get working but the entry-level plan is $50 a month. It's unclear what the different levels of ArrowChat provide which makes me nervous.
  12. We need something that ties into IPB so we can be sure of who is who and don't have trolls dropping in claiming to be someone they are not.

    Sleep study results

    I just had a home sleep study that showed no apnea but that's all.
