Hi Kara,

Sorry I've failed to keep you posted on the Braverman stuff. I've kinda been stuck in neutral for the past month. I finally managed to muster up enough motivation to go back and see him.

Anyway, I pretty much had decided that I wanted to try pushing the dopamine/norepinephrine, so I mentioned Wellbutrin to him and he agreed completely. To give him credit he actually told me the first day that dopamine was my problem, but for some strange reason I decided I wanted to give Zoloft a try?

We'll see what happens. Like I said he really helped my friend. The poor guy was told he had chronic fatique and was on disability for almost 10 years. Braverman put him on Lamictal and told him he had to keep taking it. It took a few months to kick in, but now it's 10 months into it and the guy is a new person. He even has his girlfriend going to see Braverman. Unfortunately, my Brain Map and personality profile came out totally different from his so I'm not sure Lamictal would help me.

Right now I've got the new drug jitters. Not because I'm worried it'll mess me up, but that it won't work. I will definitely let you know how it goes...
