Kat is back (again)

Posted by ChicagoKat on March 6, 2013, at 16:09:51

Hi all, I haven't been on babble for a while, mostly because my mood is like a damp squib, whatever that is :)

Seriously, I have been SOOO anxious that I can't take Ritalin even at very low doses. So I'm incredibly depressed as well as incredibly anxious. No fun when you get the double whammy, as I'm sure a lot of you know.

Can't take benzos b/c of super-physical addiction. Doc rx'd a real oldie, Miltown (meprobamate). It's what was used as an anti-anxiety med before valium hit the market. It definitely does not help near as much as a benzo, but it helps a little bit.

Oh, we tried upping my Elavil dose, and I had several hallucinations, and became incredibly confused and at times hostile. I was plain weird. Tapering off that now, and starting Lexapro which has helped my anxiety in the past.

Anyways, I've missed you all on babble, I was just in such a dark place, even picking up my laptop seemed like a real effort.

Hope you are all well, and Jono, if you find something that's great for anxiety please let me know! And, even more importantly, explain to me what a damp squib is!! It sounds like some kind of sea creature that likes to crawl around on the beach in a wet t-shirt.
