  1. Has anyone ever done a med wash? Was it IP or IOP or at home? Did you come off all of your meds completely before restarting any? How long do you have to be without meds? How painful is it?
  2. It feels good not being alone in this fight, but I’m really sorry you know how this feels. I hope you are ok. Thank you iceberg. You are good stuff.
  3. I’m sorry for deleting my post. I feel very nervous because people near me are watching me and taking pictures of me. So I feel like I can’t post a lot unless it’s private because those people are watching my every move. I wish I felt safer. I can’t even check the mail right now.
  4. I hope your tummy stays happy on metformin too! I have been more consistent with taking my fiber supplement (I had been skipping it). Now I’ve *knock on wood* had less tummy/bathroom woes for a few days and I’ve realized that maybe I need to be better at that so I can stay on the protective metformin. (Since I’m on a ginormous Zyprexa dose) good luck!!!!!
  5. Been there with being in bed and having an accident. Luckily I only ruined my pants. I’ve been fortunate because nowadays I’ve gotten very good at feeling if I’m going to have diarrhea. So I can get to a bathroom quick. Geez. I sound horrible. I’ve put up with this because I’ve been terrified of getting diabetes. And I’m not assertive and my self esteem sucks. I need to be honest with my dr, I suppose. Geez.
  6. I have diarrhea too. I thought it was me getting IBS like my mom but I’m not sure now. I haven’t had my blood sugar tested in almost a year. My fasting glucose was ok according to my GP (it was borderline high according to the chart). My A1c was never tested. Or if it was last year it was normal.
  7. I don’t know what metformin is doing for me now. I got on it for weight loss, when I was on seroquel. It is maybe/probably causing my tummy/bathroom woes now that I connect the dots. In a week I see my Dr and I’m going to ask to try going off of it. My concern is that it is helping my blood sugar and A1c. If I’m diabetic though, I’d like to know. Honestly. So I can treat it. Anyone know what to expect with getting off metformin? Such as withdrawals or if I have to expect to taper it down slowly? I’ve been on it maybe 2+ years? I put up with the tummy woes because I was desperate to lose weight and I was worried about getting diabetic. I know I’m dumb and not assertive.

  9. I should not have tried to help out. I guess suffering from severe schizoaffective disorder makes my opinions and my life story/experiences lowly or worthless or inappropriate or what have you on a MI/MH website of all places. I was only trying to help yet I get slapped in the face. Stigma is alive and well CB-ers. Even within the MI community, it seems (as is blatantly demonstrated here).
  10. Well shit. I never thought about the idiots who could lie about this. I’m sad now. This sucks. People will lie about being vaccinated. It will happen. I’m worried now. Very worried. I’m anxious about very bad outcomes. And the no mask aspect scares me still.
  11. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html?fbclid=IwAR1jR14BoEnXMf_1oPeXtOif2IErgrrBHHukGBvGT2pOe-YJCtK6rykHWE Did anyone read this yet? Or see this? CDC says that “Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.” Namely….. “If you’ve been fully vaccinated: You can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic. You can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required” I’m fully vaccinated and I’m so glad I am!
