Hello All, I hope everyone is doing well. I really
like the unity of this list--one of the few places I
feel like most everyone understands and accepts me--
many of us have similar problems and experiences.
Since I have isolated for years, this list gives me
some social connection--I appreciate it. Ok, I'll
stop gushing--just had to get that off my chest.
I want to relate this experience: I was up to full
dose of 300mg of Wellbutrin for about a week then,
because of all the itching, I was to drop back to
150mg a day and then stop. Today was my first day
without it. I'm still taking the 1/2mg of Risperdal
a day and 1mg of Klonopin roughly every day or every
other day. I mainly just wanted to relate that my
awareness seems heightened, I think this is what it
feels like to not be depressed,I'm not sure.
I feel less content to just isolate, like I am more
'alive' than before. Maybe it is my energy coming
back. I am still sleeping too much, but hope to get
on a day schedule soon and start interviewing for a
job. Anyway, I guess it is residual effect from
the Wellbutrin making me feel a little better although
still quite anxious sometimes. Later this week, if
the rash is cleared up, my Doc will probably start me
on Celexa. I hope for some stability of my mood.
I appreciate being able to share, wish me luck, and
good luck to you all.
