I come back to Pyscho-B this morning & see a Big-Old Welcome Back Kim! Made my morning. Thank you.
Ok, at 200mg, I was cruising along, stabilized, fewer Side Effects, and noticeably not so "AWARE" of taking Effexor. As long as I was eating healthy, getting enough sleep at night (very important) and generally taking care of myself (not pushing my limits of endurance), then I was feeling good. (I have to watch myself on trying too hard to catch up on all my *should haves*.) I had energy in the morning and afternoon. But since upping to the higher dosage, I'm mired back in SE's again. I'll re-evaluate in a week or so.
How's your experience going since upping to 150?

> welcome back! we missed you!!
> this is a copy of a post i just left you over at Social too...
> i know Cher has written you already over on Social... When this all suddenly got upended on Friday night and our posts were getting redirected all over the place, i left you and Willie a post on this site to tell you how to find us, but i don't know if that post is even still here... If you feel like 'catching up' and you've gotten the drift of how the Social site works, on the "master page" at the top you'd have to enter the archived posts for the week of 7/19 (seems that each Saturday that shelve the previous week's posts and start over) and there's a thread called something like 'Controlling men and pleasers' which says it was sent by Dr. Bob but it's really all of our posts inside his post that he redirected over their in his name ... It's very different the way it works there. And indeed it caught us so off guard and RIGHT in the middle of an intense thread of personal sharings, having no idea we weren't supposed to be doing that ... so we just found each other by e-mail and have written like crazy over the weekend (well, i sort of) ... Anyway, we'd love to have you write to Cher's address in her post and join us if you're interested, as an alternative, regardless of what we wind up doing ... In any event we can no longer have a one-site-serves-all kind of place for dealing with our meds and "issues" too ...
> Gosh you went to 300! and i went to 150 last week (and frankly i'm going through an expectation-letdown cuz my energy level still sucks)! i'm dying to hear more about what changes you're feeling ...
> again, welcome back!
