  1. Hey strangers.. I gotta say, I was disappointed when I checked in a while back and found that the chat roooms had been closed.. A lot of things have changed in the last few years and wanted to share with my fav people..

    I’m still working as a sleep tech, loving it., I work in 2 different locations, in different states even ... 

    ATM   I am over 2000 miles from home, traveling 8-12 hrs a day, With a friend who is moving cross country for a job that is no longer available due to current circumstances.. 

    I was just laying here, thinking about all of you guys, and thought -  IT WOULD BE SO COOL TO MEET SOME OF YOU IN PERSON.. just for coffee, but there is nowhere you can go and sit to enjoy a cup of coffee or someone’s company.. 

    Anyways, to put an end to my sharing, I am currently in Toledo. I would love to ask all of you to send me a friend request on FB 

    I am unable to share certain pics and info on FB due to my blood relatives knowing nothing about what is going on, but I am sharing some of the pics here....

      Iv'e struggled with meds. being on them and off them for over 15yrs. Sometimes, when none are working any more, it's time to take a break.

  3. get outta my head. I have no vacancies

  4. I've been right where you are. You feel like nobody is there to help, you can't explain your feelings and emotions to anyone bc they won't understand. I self medicated with mj for over a yr (with my pdoc's knowledge) and then one day, I just didn't have that NEED to do it. I've never been hospitalized, self injured, or overdosed. I'm 35 and have only been correctly diagnosed for 4yrs. I am still tweaking my meds for the right combo(just increased seroquel to 300mg). I like to spend time in chat bc I feel like I have real friends there. I don't have to participate if I don't feel like it, but they are still there and that helps. Hope you find the help you are looking for. If you have any ?'s for me feel free to msg me.
  5. I am BP with anxiety NOS, and depression. Not to mention ADD. I would suggest you start monitoring how much you smoke. I noticed that I too get nauseated and dizzy with the ringing ears if I smoke too much. Now it doesn't happen all the time, but if I haven't eaten or my blood sugar is low, it's more likely to happen. The more depression and irritation comes from part of the 'need'. It is similar to a withdrawal symptom, especially if you do it daily. I do enjoy smoking, and I find that it helps more than any benzo I've tried. Everyone is different. I told my pdoc that I smoke and I would highly suggest you do the same and let them know what you experience. I got excessively bad ringing ears and nausea and lightheaded while I was on lithium. Smoke in moderation. Don't go overboard with it. You want to still function, not be uh.... oh... yah... Hope this helps.
  6. glad to have lived my life with 'oh well' rather than 'what if'. looking forward to many more 'OH WELLSl

      thx. my anxiety was a lot better than the days leading up to it

  22. wanna feel like me

  23. changing meds is a nightmare

  24. I also have a fear of everything. For me, its simple things like taking a shower, going from one room to another. I have a constant scared feeling that relates to nothing and everything. There are random times that I do 'forget' or not notice this feeling. It is very uncomfortable and unsettling. Other than letting you know you are not alone and that you can find support here, I have no advice for making it easier to bear.
  25. happy to have my new bathtub in. even if it is leaning on the wall
