legs Posted July 14, 2009 Share Posted July 14, 2009 I can't believe I just quoted a Jim Carrey movie in my topic. Anyway, hi everyone. I lurked here for a little while to find out experiences on a new medication and jumped in the chat room when I was at a real low point, and it was awesome to just rant to strangers for a little. Anyway, life history in brief, I was a childhood DX of ADHD, the inattentive kind (back in the day when it was just called ADD, or, as my mom likes to say "girl ADD, which is different than boy ADD"). Hit my teens and that came with a dx of depression. That's been reaffirmed two or three times since, along with some comorbid anxiety. Lots of fun! I've been on five thousand different meds, and after Pristiq caused me dibilitating side effects after just three days of it, my doc's trying me out on Effexor since I can start it off much much slower. Expect to see me ranting a bit around various boards where there is ranting available, because I just got dumped my fiancee (double e cos yes, she's a she too) who is already "very happy" with another woman, which is something that never helps a great deal and right now we're in the messy process of splitting up our stuff and moving out of home. So yeah. Glad to be here, and I gotta say from lurking there's nothing that helps as much as reading other people with the same stuff going on in life/symptoms from things/problems with meds because it really helps chase away those "only me" moments.
