>Hi SB,

I'm glad you're relating well to your psychiatrist and being responsible with your medications. It sounds like you really want to change. The best thing is, or the most hopeful thing is that psychiatrists use their medications to get patients to a 'good average' (this is what my previous psychiatrist told me). So I'm thinking people who feel a nice stable 'good' don't feel the need to do recreational drugs. For me, after about 10 days on paxil, I simply didn't drink again (no effort required). Just keep the channels of communication open with your psychiatrist (maybe your dose of ritalin isn't high enough for you).

Me, I'm planning to make a doctor's appointment for the week of July 12 to find a new psychiatrist (I've moved cities). I've been putting this off for months because of one little tiny winy bad experience that filled me with incredible amounts of anxiety (not getting my dexedrine). Do you still party alot?

Take care
