  1. thanks. I am going to ignore that person that had me questioning my meds and just be grateful they are working.
  2. Thanks. My pdoc does not follow my labs, but I see an endocrinologist. I take medications for lipids, diabetes, hypothyroid along with psych meds. Everything is pretty stable. Diabetes runs in my family along with the other issues. it’s my own fault. I posted a pic of my morning meds and supplements on a mental health forum thinking people would relate and I got someone questioning my meds. I am not going to stop taking anything but I do question my choices. I did a quick google and am not sure of that http://www.diabetesincontrol.com/ziprasidone-geodon-associated-with-increased-risk-of-hyperglycemia-diabetes/
  3. I have someone questioning my taking abilify when I have type 2 diabetes. They think it may get better if I changed meds. I really don’t want to go through another med trial, but if there is a better option I will ask my pdoc.
  4. I saw a post elsewhere about a 30 day alcohol free “sober October” challenge on spar (an accountability app). You can lose real money with the app. You have to check in daily and if you miss a day it is $3. The winners split the pot. has anyone done something like this? I am sure I would miss a deadline even if I did not drink
  5. Not sure if I am allowed to mention this, but there is a chat room running with mostly people from cb (not affiliated) I am not recruiting just refuting that they all did not work.
  6. Raider giving me his, I am not amused , look
  7. I am glad you have your dog and the surgery and all was covered. I think if we compare a few we may decide on a policy
  8. Yes, I have been doing a bunch of small amounts, too and they do add up. He said he noticed some and was questioning it. I am going to try to put an end to that. i just told him about the insurance. He wants me to try to cancel it, but if we can’t we can get through a year. He said I seem fine, but I have these impulses. I probably sound really backward or something, but I had a time where I was spending because of delusions.
  9. My husband is really frugal and often he takes a long time to make decisions. I usually ask him before spending. We have a joint account, but I have my own credit card. i have bought things like vitamins and clothes, some small splurges. I was cleaning out a drawer and found a T-shirt with my children’s picture on it, I am never going to wear it, but I want to save it. I found someone on Etsy who makes quilted pillows from shirts and I ordered one, mailed the shirt and am waiting now. It is not a big expense but it isn’t something he won’t notice. but, the next is a big deal, and I am afraid to tell. I was looking at discounts I can get through my work, they have discounted gym memberships, but I know I won’t use that. They have pet insurance, a few different companies. I asked my vet and he recommends it and said they are all good companies. I called to get a quote and ended up signing up. The underwriters approved it and I am expecting a notice in the mail soon. I am not afraid, like he is mean or anything, but I am afraid to tell him.
  10. I take both lexapro and wellbutrin. Wellbutrin is more stimulating and has more of an anti-depressant effect for me. Lexapro is more calming and helps reduce anxiety more than works on my depression. When I first took it I felt really weird, speedy, but that went away quickly.
  11. Thank you. I clumped a couple together and got a top 7 i have few close relationships- immediate family, siblings, friends. I lumped those all into number 1. I do try to keep in touch and have good communication. It makes me certain I want to keep trying to be more attentive. stability- financial, mental, physical. I don’t need wealth but I want to be secure. humor and fun peace. Inner peace, less anxious nature- I don’t think about this, but I do enjoy nature wisdom. Creativity interesting exercise. I think I will bring this to my tdoc for something to talk about
  12. What is brown and sticky? A stick How do you tell a boy shark from a girl shark? You give it a fish. If he eats it, it's a boy, if she eats it, it's a girl
  13. The thinking people will get you sounds like paranoia, I don’t know. I feel like I made mistakes and something bad will happen. You are logically reasoning that you did nothing wrong. That seems like a great skill. we had a meeting at work the other day, I thought I might have asked too many questions and irritated my co workers. I knew they wanted to get back to work. I worried about it all night, when I asked a co worker the next day if I talked too much in the meeting, she said no. Sometimes, I need another person to check in with.
