Well, hang in there, you're definitely NOT alone... you mentioned you don't like asking for help, but that's definitely a hinderance to your health. I used to feel the same way... I mean, me? on a forum? yeah right. Well, here I am. It's very helpful. Don't give in to the feeling that you're a loser just because you have to reach out and ask for help, EVERYONE has to do it, most people have to do it every day.
I don't know how long you've been on Topamax but I know that when I started it if given the opportunity I could've slept as long as I wanted! Literally! I'm now on a stimulant to help battle the sleepys.
But seriously, don't feel bad reaching out... you've GOT to look out for yourself! You've got to... stick up for youself, fight for yourself, cause... if you don't... who will??? I sometimes feel like a dope having to go to doctors and get so many different drugs and have SO many different side effects and I'm surrounded by totally healthy people that make me feel like an alien and of course, doctors don't particularly make me feel like a queen... but that's okay, cause I'm on the path to living the quality of life that I've always dreamed of (as we all are here).
I just said a prayer for you... keep on keeping on!
