  1. I think I took 2mg in the morning. I was in college and not overly med compliant due to a lack of funds. Plus roommates thought my meds were poisoning me so they threw them out.
  2. I was briefly given Navane at low dose and it seemed to work well and for anxiety.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Sorta depressed

    Survived mom's visit, mostly

    I have trouble with my family's stance on MI. When my mother was told by a teacher that I was in distress she replied that everything was all my fault. She let my brother beat me and laughed at it by saying I was the crazy one and they were going to lock me up. That antagonistic environment in itself was enough to drive anyone crazy. My family is clueless. They think nothing of the sort has ever happened. With age I have started calling bullshit on things. Why do I not want to spend a lot time with them? Let me explain... and the stories are easily forgotten like everyone has amnesia. And my mom's hypocrisy is laughable.

    I am going through some stuff. I dumped an ex of six years. He was emotionally abusive and did some awful shit. When I confronted him on the issues a switch went off where I just thought, "no more." And to think I loved him. I felt much better when I cut him loose. He tried to contact me. He developed depression and asked me for tips. He then developed more serious problems. When I spoke about our past to him I mentioned that him speaking to me was not a green light for his abuse. He could not answer nor could he apologize. That was the final nail in the coffin. I have heart ache from a few things but I take my time working through them.
  6. I was honestly a bit confused about what happened here. Simon took advantage of you. It may be your kink but it seems he crossed your boundaries as well. I don't know what to call what happened there. Maybe I am out of the loop. I can understand just coming clean and just wanting to put it behind you, I hope your partner forgives you, and you can move on.
  7. I have a burning desire to connect with someone from my youth. He watched me descend into complete and total meltdown. I am wondering what he knows of the cause. I wish I could talk to him. Found his facebook page and just gave a very brief hello (mentioning that I don't want to intrude because he has a wife and kids now). He never replied. I sometimes wish to reconnect because I wonder if it will just make me feel a bit better. I went through some awful things aside from mental illness. I wonder if they blame me or think I am exaggerating on what happened to me. I often just feel very negative and just feel there is nothing I can do, or I am at fault for what happened. It's an odd pain, and I don't know if I am just stuck on a person because they were a witness at the worst of it. I hate to seem like some weirdo stalker.
  8. I see my psych in a week so I will get an opinion then. I see her next wednesday.
  9. To be honest I don't think anyone knows what the fuck they're doing. I asked my family doc if I could just come off the Lyrica which I take 150 mg 2x a day. After telling her this (until I was blue in the face) she wrote a bizarre scrip into the pharmacy suggesting I take Lyrica 225mg plus 2x 25mg tablets all at once, at night. Either they think I'm selling it, or fuck it, who knows. Will bad shit happens if I just stop by missing a 150mg dose?
  10. not really, but I am still not dropping the dose until I see her again. She advised I take seroquel earlier in 100mg does 3x a day. See her next week.
  11. I take them together. I'll try in the morning to see what happens.
  12. No. I was thinking I was getting depressed when I was on zoloft and lyrica. It's hard to tell though. My workplace was genuinely shitty, current relationship legitimately sucks, and maybe I just had a hard time sleeping because I sleep next to a chronic snorer. I think I got somewhat depressed. Hard to tell what is situational and what is disordered and I feel I am getting symptoms that are new and while and maybe an indication of my meds not being right.
  13. I don't think the seroquel is helping enough and I think that adding a mood stabilizer and coming off Lyrica would be best.
  14. I am currently on 300 mg of seroquel for bipolar II (mainly depression) and 300 mg Lyrica for anxiety. I want to come off the Lyrica because I think it might be causing rage and it always seems to happen after my morning dose of 150 mg Lyrica, and 100 mg of Seroquel. I take 150mg of Lyrica at 9am and then again at 5pm. My Seroquel is taken at 100 mg at 9am and 200 mg at 9pm. It is Extended Release. The Lyrica is in capsule form. Any thoughts? I am smallish 44 yo woman.
