> Was the Wellbutrin the sustained release form? When it was the old immediate release form there were a lot of complaints about jitteriness, but with the sustained release form, not so.

I don't think so. At least it didn't say it on the box. That was the only med offered to me as a sample. I do remember they were large hard to cut pills..And it was almost exactly 2 yrs ago. After that my tx was just to take klonopin and "try to relax"...

I NEVER NEVER NEVER WANT TO RETURN TO THE WAY I WAS POSTPARTUM AND THREE YEARS AGO! I know I would fall over the edge this time. I'm pretty sure hormones had something to do with it each time. After all a good part of my life felt like being in front of a firing squad and sometimes I slept and survived... Or maybe it was just coincidence?

On that topic, the only other medication I take is the small amounts of natural hormones--since last summer. I don't know if they are helping but I am terrified to do anything that might take away the sleep and lowered anxiety. The synthetics (Provera and Premarin) were precipitants to this tumble into the depths 3 yrs ago. I have been struggling with the new ins co for the last 2 wks to transfer scripts to them and as it turns out, since they are compounded (estradiol and progesterone in oil), they are considered to be NON PREFERRED!! What else, huh? I am so tired of all this bargaining with the ins co that I will probably just stop taking them. With the Remeron that is 3 non-preferred meds=$75/mo=around $1000 a year. What if anything else were to come up? Every time I called I got a new person and a new story...

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

I told them(EMDR) I lived near Durham, Dover, Portsmouth, Exeter and so that's all they sent me. I would like to find someone I could trust and who is experienced --who has background in more than EMDR--something that will allow me to start struggling uphill toward what other people around me seem to come by naturally?

I don't know why this is so hard for me...I think I have lost some trust in the mental health professions in my area because of my experiences over the last few years with the nice but not very helpful doc. And, it was so nice to go in to the therapist--to be able to cry, to be listened to, cared about and nurtured--to feel some humanity. But I knew soon enough that there was more for me to do than that-
