    I'm a bit of a geek who loves Star Trek, computers, reading, singing, studying the medical field, perusing theories of Quantum mechanics, rainy days, good wine, and attempts to find meaning in an otherwise dreary existence.

  1. Some DV (domestic violence) shelters have it down... but most... well, they just remove all access to the internet except for staff - who of course use things like facebook and other IP logging, GPS using, sites to their heart's content. Even to the extent of disallowing parents to continue access to homeschooling programs. Why? Cause computers show your location.... No - they show your IP, and someone has to know how to log into a site that shares it openly to even view it... and then, it says the city. I get that... if the person you're hiding from is a geek that knows how to get it. But that's not an address. Also -- your cell phone has an IP too. Not as specific. But good enough if you're changing states. So, rather than allowing internet access (needed), or getting a VPN (like smart shelters do), they just deny wifi and let people use cell phones in any way they like. It's lazy. It's stupid, and when someone who knows this shit comes around... they don't care to hear it... So you hear their bullshit and very wrong and laughable explanations on how tech works, and not only get angry... but also really worry about the person that comes here in the future that is hiding from someone who's actually tech proficient, and what may transpire because of it.
  2. Fine.. On a different note, I noticed the Etodolac mention in your sig, and I'm curious how it compares to rx level Naproxen for you? (One of those is roughly the equivalent of 2 1/2 OTC Naproxen pills) Is there really a major difference in effectiveness, or is it more minor? I'm wondering because the ER here pushes a similar med, Toradol, as if it were the equivalent of 1mg IV Dilaudid...and I'm wondering if the stronger NSAIDS really are significantly better (minus that obvious hype). I have to refuse them because I won't take the risk of causing a MAOI-HTN event to be mysteriously untreatable. But I do wonder how they actually perform...

    Can you overdose on Neurontin?

    That's not inaccurate, but please understand, there's a good reason why MI med toxicologies are either misrepresented or hard to find. The majority of people can be helped out of of their depression/suicidal thoughts. Most suicidal attempts end in gratefulness it didn't work. It isn't overall beneficial to point to flaws that could prevent finding real help.
  4. I know they're there, I've found them before - and for my MI, it works. But I've gone from a high end Mayo Clinic Psych who naturally understood that, to a Resident --- and she can't seem to find any viable research showing that dopa-agonists work for treatment resistant depression... her exact words, it only works for Parkinsons (or other brain dxs). (What other brain dxs???? A) For one..?) B) I know she's wrong, and I found and have the studies on my old computer, but not with me.. and I no longer have access to my university study database either. If anyone can send me copies of the research to give to her (Mirapex is mostly named), I would be deeply grateful! Thanks! P.S. I'm going to cross-post this into the MDD forum just in case that may turn up other results, so please leave up the duplicate long enough to get additional responses. I'd appreciate it, thanks!
