Thanks for thinking with me.
I know about the PTSD. That's why the Seroquel is so high, because of severe anxiety.
My body has become accustomed to the meds, hence don't feel sleepy at all...
I've been in therapy for 20 years now. So far all I've reached is a slight improvement... maybe I should accept that and try to be happy with it??? Instead of hunting after a larger goal -> happiness in general. Out of reach, probably.

But I still often feel hurt, cry at the drop of a hat and am very sensitive to rejection (or the interpretation there of). It's like all 'bullits' (nasty remarks, ignorance) go straight for the heart... Would there be medication warding this off?? Even if it's only a little...
