I also met with my new "Meds" Doc. He was great. He talked with me about alot of diferent issues, unlike the past two "Med" Docs I had before. He started me on Celexa today to help with the depression. He was unsure of taking me off of the Wellbutrin for now. I had a long day at the hospital, 1:00 to 6:00 but I have to say I feel very hopeful and encouraged by the new help I am getting. For once I feel I have Docs that understand my illness. :) I am also going to put myself totally into the DBT program.

> Don't we wish we could just "snap out of it". I really hate when people say that. Or when they say "get out and get some excersize", when you can hardly get out of bed!! I'm alot better now, but I remember when people said that to me , I'd have to bite my tongue for fear of going off on them! Have a great Thanksgiving Everybody!
Hi. I'm trying to link up w/ support as I take my BPD into the DBT. I have missed initial appts. and been late, so have not yet been allowed to go INTO the DBT, but am on probation - 4 wks. not even 5m late. What is all this talk about diagnoses??? I screw up every relationship I have somehow. I cannot lie to save myself, or to save another. I'm on Effexor-XR. At first it wasn't working, but then I read about slow metabolizers, and found that the timing of your second daily dose is VERY important, and you have to find it yourself...it's just before you begin to feel anxiety. So it's working very well. I'm on Neuronton for nerve pain but I guess it helps my mood. Then, only 2mg a day of Klonopin ... which sucks. I am so full of fear that I try to find peeps to go w/ me if I have to go on an errand or to an appt. I don't like leaving the house. When I was about 21 or so, I began having premenstrual dysphoric disorder. That was the beginning of a long trail of love and hate, peace and war,...and now I just want to stop this behavior. Do you think more anxiety med would be beneficial? What is dysthymia? Can you hook me up w/ any '04 posts on BpersonD here? Best Wishes cf
