Thank you! She committed suicide February 6th of this year. I'm happy for her that her battle with depression and addiction are over, but I miss her. I am looking forward to giving her a great big hug in heaven and hearing her laugh again. She had a great laugh and could always make me laugh, no matter what.

Though I still can't believe it's real at times.

I hope you make it to your meeting tomorrow! And that you are able to decrease back down if that's what you need.

Hi Mari That's both scary,and aggravating when you have a difficult time in synchronizing a medicine to be helpful,and not harmful. I hope that you figure out what dose is best for you. I hope that Tuesday goes well for you. BF

Default not high enough

This is the same problem I have had with other medications -- The dose I take does not help. When I raise the dose, the side affects are difficult. I am sticking at the 400 until I no longer feel stoned. My goal is to get to 600 so I can evaluate if the med is helping for nerve pain and anxiety.

Default Cannot go to bed.

I am afraid to go to bed more than I usually am. I do not know what is happening.

I want to avoid dealing with the bed. Maybe it is too much trouble to brush teeth, wash a little, put on bed clothes, check this, check that, write notes to myself about what I have to do tomorrow.
. . find ANY WAY I can to distract my self and find something to do other than go to bed.


I am sooo totally losing it. I am not o.k.

Mari It sounds like fear,and obsessive mental activities combined. Checking things can go hay wire in the mind.

My ocd was getting worse when I checked things in my wallet,then it exploded into other obsessions about all kinds of things. I would think about something,and it would become a large problem in my mind,and distort in my mind.

I have a digital recording device with 18 worries/burdens recorded in it. I actually have 2 of these recording devices. If it's something that needs to be taken care of very soon,I write out a note,and tape it to the computer monitor.

Mari. The things we go through. Good luck at this meeting. Whatever happens,you will get through this. BF
