Hi Barb-cat!!

I was worried about you from your last post. I wanted to reply back, but honestly didn't know what to say. I knew you'd figure it out, though, no matter what. Sometimes I still think about you and Katia when I'm staring into space and smoking at night, wondering how you are. Glad to know you are alright.

I"ve been pretty stable lately--much better than before. I'm taking 750mg of Depakote and .25mg of Risperdal. Funny how such a teensy pill has made such a remarkable difference for me. While I was taking Depakote, I was still markedly cycling (albeit more slowly) with agitated ups and disconnected downs. I still couldn't sleep without a benzo, and I was losing my memory due to no REM sleep. Once we added the Risperdal, within a week I started sleeping and the agitation was completely gone. Now I'm considering a switch to Abilify to see if it helps the depressions I still experience. All in all, the mess is being untangled, and I feel much better than I did a year ago.

It's so great to hear from you! Keep in touch miss Barb-cat!

Katy
