> Dear Cynthia,
Thanks for the warm response. It sounds like we are on the same page. I am jsut now starting to learn about my triggers. It's the damn anxiety that has me at such a hold right now. Klonopin is about the only thing that seems to work for me. They have just started me on neurtotin but it is still to soon to tell. I sometimes have my doubts about all this medication shit. I don't know if I feel worse know or before I started on meds. Your right though, it is a never ending battle, I read all the time, knowledge about this illness is power over the illness. Thats how I see it. If I can over power it than I will beat it some day. My wost times are at night. I seem to drop pretty bad at night. Can't seem to figure that out. real bad depressive episodes towards the end of the day. I'll go through these short burst of energy and than bam I fall. Someimes I feel like it is the medication that is inducing it, because I have never experience this before. Convincing my doctor of this is probably a waste of my time. I have been on topamax which I have been lowering my dosage of becasue I am certain that has been a contributor. I have read enough about the drug to know that it increases anxiety. I will give the neurontin time . Anyway, once again thanks for your response. It's comforting knowing I am not the only one out there going at this alone. Ellen
