> Snapper - what do you take now? And (sorry for not doing my homework) do you see a T? My dx is very similar to yours.

> I know this sounds like I'm on a crusade, but I was floored by the effect EMDR had on my anxiety and 24/7 panic attacks. I was NORMAL for 1 1/2 days. (I've just started it.)

I was seeing a T.and also had some EMDR 6 to 7 yrs ago but don't remember if it did me any good. it was back when i could semi-afford it and my overall life-stresses were continually stressful, running my own business, still drinking quite heavy, totally jscked up sleeping etc. right now because I am having ECT, i am very ltd. in the meds that I can take as not to interfere with the benefits of ect. I know that sounds crazy. Ambien every night....10 to 20mg.in divided doses and Gabitril...on the days i have ECT. It is a hard schedule to try and explain. No Gabatril the night before as it would mess up the seizure threshold...which is the whole purpose of the treatment to begin with.... I am in such a precarious situation.....constant anxiety/depression/constant depression about the continued intense anxiety..... it sucks......thank God for the Ambien. I wish I could sleep more like 14 to 16 hrs in every 24 hr period..instead of 5 to 6 of not so restful type sleep. I was taking Remeron and Klonopin at one point in last six months and it seemed to help a little more than the current protocol. but my memory is so bad that I am not sure if I was just thinking it was more effective or that I truly am more subjectively impaired. It is so hard to sort out. Part of me wants to throw in the towell and get back on Effexor, Klonopin, Ambien and maybe Remeron and just say fooey on the ECT in hopes of more complete remission.I wish I could make better decisions and did not have to reley on other peoples thoughts and opinions (DR. and familys') in respect to my mental health.I refuse to submit to hosptialization (again) and I know that I must continue to be my own advocate...least they lock me up and throw away the key (doughtful, but none the less a very scary thought)lol
