> man, i feel bad for hijacking this thread, i guess i write too much :(

**Plenty of real reasons to feel bad. This is not one of them.
> interesting... what hormones had the most effect on your energy? was this like lowering your cortisol or something?

**Oh man, all of them except for cortisol were out - DHEA, progesterone to estradiol ratio was very low, testosterone was low, thyroid was low, human growth hormone was very low. The HGH has been the lynchpin in the whole kielbasa. When HGH isn't adequate the pituitary doesn't function very well and all the hormones go to kerfluey and can't hold any correction from outside sources for long. I've been applying hormone creams, taking HGH shots and voila, about 80% better. My naturopath feels as I do that balancing hormone levels is absolutely critical in just about any chronic condition. None of our docs or pdocs seem to get this.

> do you drive like a maniac? ...
**Not anymore. I've gotten pretty stodgy at the wheel since my anxiety level skyrocketed a few years back. Plus, I've been in too many serious accidents. May be crazy but I ain't stupid.

> oh... darn... i was taking lamictal by itself..... perhaps if i'd combined lithium i would have been much much better..... but that's ok, i'm happy with abilify for now :)

**Lamictal and lithium go together like a horse and carriage. I can't do one without the otthhhherrr.
