    I haven't moved much the past couple of days. My psych. adjusted my meds and I am slightly out of it.

    I think she wanted to calm me down by increasing Trazodone during the day...I've been having horrible anxiety/crying fits and we're trying to avoid the depression from taking hold again.

    Anyway, I don't know why I felt the need to post this....Just bored I guess. I'm going to try to stick it out for a week until my next appt, hopefully the sleepiness will lessen w time.

    hermitlady:

    Give it some time. Medication changes take a while.
    It will pass, but give the doc good feedback.

    You will make it. I know it will take patience, but it seems you have that.

    Don't sweat the small stuff (the title of a book).
    You will be OK.

    Keep the faith!

    I'm drinking a strong cup of coffee right now, trying not to take a second nap so I can sleep tonight.

    Yes, I do admit I'm in the peri-menopause phase...my cycles are only 21 days apart these days. In fact, that's one of the reasons I'm aching so bad right now, waiting for Aunt Flo to arrive any minute now :) I do use topical Progesterone cream which seems to help the psycho PMS days somewhat.

    I just planned to take it easy this weekend and not worry about it, but feeling a little down today. I've been thru so many meds that make me so zonked, that's typical for me.

    Thanks for the visit, definately could use the company today.

    Hi SK....

    Been looking for you, sounds like you've been in the same boat as me. We went to Vegas last weekend and I totally overdid it, so that's for sure one reason I've been laid out this week (even before the med change)...

    I just forced myself to keep moving to keep up w the gang I was with. I ended up having several crying fits in the casino, restaurants and in the show we saw. My sisters were really worried about me, they don't see me very often and were surprised I felt so bad. I tell them....THIS IS MY LIFE, isn't it fun???? LOL

    So, you have a horse??? How great! Are you able to ride?? We have 2+ acres and have room for one, but I don't know anything about horses and haven't ever ridden much. Right now the dogs and cats are enough of a handful, not to mention my 2 wild children!

    Come back and visit me when you get a chance, good to see you. Glad you're getting out today, I haven't been out all week except to drop my son off at school and pick him up. If at all possible I avoid getting out of the car cuz I look like Death Warmed Over....thank goodness for tinted windows:)

    Hi Hermie,

    Just dropped in for a quick hello. I did way too much today and now I am miserable.

    I hope this new medication is a good fit for you. I know how boring resting is but give this new med a try. You probably need to catch up on your sleep.

    hugs Redwillow!

    Just cannot fall asleep! I could barely keep my eyes open all day, and now I'm wide awake. It just doesn't make since how my body acts sometimes.

    Redwillow and Seakitten....I hope to see you tomorrow. I'll check in and look for you both. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I read your latest post here a few minutes ago and now when I came back to post it is gone! Lost somewhere in cyberspace I suppose.

    I hope you're ok, been thinking of you. Checked out some of your posts over on the worship board, sorry your heart is being pummeled. come back and see me.

    OK, I just went back searching for Seakitten's other posts and every one of them is gone...could she have gotton banned and they poofed all of her posts??? I've never seen that happen here before....I'm confused.[This Message was Edited on 10/09/2006]
