  1. I know that news paper! (In your display pic) I don't really have anything to say beyond I saw The Stranger and got nostalgic. I get to move back there in another two years! Sorry for the random comment.

  2. sometimes I need to intervene on myself ..now is one of those times I declare a media/internet break ..and a therapy tune up ....starting......now

  3. I am sorry my point was confusing and rude ..It is not the ciltaopram it is drugs in general when I got this recall I had just read a post where someone had taken someone elses medication ..this happens a lot and folks talk about it freely ...either they order online or borrow drugs from friends ...this is just one crushing example about why people should not do that ...people post this off handishly and .."I tried my friends medication" or ordered drugs online ..really it is just so dangerous ..you know I had second thoughts as soon as I posted it and that I should explain and then when I did
  4. Is anyone set off by strobes? no hormonal fluctuations are the aboslute reason for my migraines they ride the moon right along with me ..and significant weather changes will trigger a horrid migraine...like now after a long gloomy season ..when the sun finally returns that is pretty much a given I will have a full blown migraine the first sunny day after this long period of gloom Do you get a postdrome? yes but it usually lasts just a few hours and if I drink tons of water it passes easily..when the migraine breaks I am so relieved the prodrome is just a reminder of how much the hea
  5. I just wanted to say I apologize and had second thoughts about posting this because of anxiety triggers..but sometimes you guys trigger me too with the way folks get drugs ....are a LOT of ways people get drugs on this board..not just through a regular pharmacy and not always with their names on the bottles ....you post you do it!!! and that is why I felt compelled to post this ..not for the majority but for the minority few this is a PSA from an poorly contained Wondernut now I get recalls all the time and honestly check my stock and move on but I have read about folks ordering onl
  6. I am not sure this is appropriate here but really a lot of folks on this board are taking this drug and I do not know how quick the doctors are at getting this info out I automatically get all drug recalls and so I thought I would post the FDA link so you could at least check? http://www.fda.gov/S...s/ucm248595.htm
  7. I am glad you like it ..I just keep watching it because she is so engaging with him as well and he is so funny! I kept hitting "next" and there is an guy making Naan in an Indian restaurant check it out ..I guess it is an endless series of videos some are kind of dumb but some are fun the dog however is hysterical my dog adores swimming in the ice cold Puget Sound but a warm shower/bath and he goes limp just like that I have to slide him across the floor like she was doing and he just looks at me with that bully smile and the minute I let go he is gone!
  8. Ok I have pit bulls not chows ..and I am not this woman ..but I am small my dog is a solid 65lb meatbag and trying to get him to the shower...well my husband found this and it is just like the drama I have getting him to the bath!!! I of course do not have this beautiful place to bath him ...but he does this exact thing! I had to watch it several times it was just so flipping funny! I do this exact same thing once a week with pigpen and he goes limp just like this dog ... I hope you enjoy it! http://www.wimp.com/bathtime/
  9. the face washing helps huh? if you add a few drops of baby shampoo to the warm water/washcloth it loosens the sticky pollen from your eyelashes and eyebrows ...that stuff just sits there and continues to annoy your senses BPLB thank you ..this was horrid and I appreciate the empathy I think it was the mold from the strawberries being so clumped together and all the rain ..there were fuzzies all under the plants and while I for sure have pollen allergies but the mold is the worst for me .I just never had the wheezing and hives before ..a solid week of wheezing and itching ...I have to p
  10. Other than taking pills ...and thank goodness we have them huh? if you can find someone to help you learn guided imagery (you can actually borrow books and dvd's from the library on the subject so do not invest before you try it and see if it is for you) I have found this to be the single best mental exercise to help with crippling panic attacks ..I had a wonderful doctor who actually was a family practice doc ..teach me to breath and visualize ..it is not perfect if you are in full blown panic it does not work but it can help when you feel it coming on to just stop and breath then u
  11. there you go! That sounds perfect ..try it then! Nothing to loose that is for sure all I can share is what you asked for..that being my own experience (and most of the time I wonder if I should even answer these posts because I do not want to discourage anyone and folks do very well in support groups..I completely flounder in them to be honest) and for me it was just too much overload ( I did go to more than one meeting I attended for about 4 months but was so depressed as a result I had to stop) ..Like I said for most folks it is a good thing and the support is wonderful
  12. have your vit D levels tested I did do that and found out I have almost none! My doctor tripled my dose last week so maybe relief is in sight ..if you live in a gloomy place like I do with no sun and the sky sitting on your head there is no sun so lighboxes seem to work for some ..I started a hydroponic garden this year and grew some food indoors it was fun and the lighting is nice ..but this has been a horrid year for most folks where I live so I can not single myself out walking helps get you going but if there is no sun ..and BPLB can share this agony with me ..we literally have had the
  13. I think if you are comfortable with an "A" type program where you follow the 12 steps (you can google them) then it is a good thing I have had patients do really well with it myself and my own experience ..well I may have attended the wrong group and I have serious issues of control so for me by the time I left I was very depressed from the stories I heard ...I hear stories all day at work and then when I go to support groups it just wipes me out to hear more ..even coming here is hard for me a lot of the time and I feel badly that I can not contribute as much as I would like to ...I do no
  14. and we all know there are no cliques formed just from people gathering right? good grief this is already a very (benign) but really cliquey place...I am not sure people can gather with out cliques!? I do not think repping has anything to do with forming cliques I like that you can rate a thread but repping individuals can demolish an already fragile self esteem even if you do not think you care if someone reps you Andy ..people do care if no one ever does and it does hurt
  15. well since I have not officially survived it yet I can not tell you! we have had one rainy day after another and the misery is pretty thick around here so ...Sanddune I have to say if it were as easy as a walk out side I would be fine! I walk outside all the time and it has not made a dent in this dismal weather I do think it helps ..but it has not helped me this year for me it is a matter of getting through ..taking what I need to take and trying to remember there is a light somewhere but in the past year the sun has been a complete stranger here where I live so the reality I just hav
