Hi you guys. I missed you. I didn't have much to say because I was working on improving. You know, I called my doctor (of course in a panic) and told him what was going on (not sleeping even with Ambien..on the verge of a panic attack) and he straightened me out! This always amazes me--when a pinch or two more or less of a med or an addition smooths out the wrinkles.

He upped my dose of Lamictal to 250mg. And he prescribed a benzo (I forget which one now) for sleep. I feel like normal again--sleeping on my own at a set time, and waking up after a full nights sleep (without the benzo now). Phew!!

Barbara--I'm so glad you are better!

Katia--I know you can get through this--this is kinda the icky part. I'm thinking about you.

I've almost entirely quit drinking (and smoking) for the past 4 months. And I can't tell you how much better I feel. I sure don't miss waking up feeling like---what was it?--a wrung out turd?--I like that metaphor. Anyway--I struggled with it first--I had some binges coupled with hypomania that were pretty enticing while they were happening. But after about 4 or 5 binges, I gave it up, and I just can't believe how much better I feel. Good luck with that Katia--it's a difficult hurdle (as though you hadn't had enough of those lately)

lovins to all--

Katy
