TG,
Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you. I see my T on Friday so I've been try to get my thoughts in order before I go. That's not an easy task! I usually try to write things down because if I don't, I end up forgetting things I really wanted to talk about.
How is the xanax working for you? I've been taking ativan for a long time. I works really well for me. My T lets me adjust my dose when I feel I need to. She knows me well enough to know that I won't abuse it. If I need it, I take it. If I don't, I don't. It helps with PMS. It's pretty similar to xanax so I just wanted to mention it to you as an alternative. I've had a lot of problems with meds. A new med is what led to my first migraine 2 years ago, sending me to the ER and getting shot up with morphine and demerol. I went off of the med but I had to make another trip to the ER for the same thing. This was before I started seeing a neurologist. She's a fantastic doctor and soon had the headaches under control. I don't know what brought this one on but I'm glad it's over. Well, enough about me. I think it sounds like you've got a good PCP who is willing to work with you and your T. Some doctors try to do more than they are qualified to do. After my mom died is when my depression started(actually, it started years before that but I never did anything about it.) My PCP prescribed 2ADs she felt comfortable with. When they didn't work or I had side effects, she suggested therapy. That was the beginning of a beautiful 9 year relationship with my T. When the migraines started, she immediately ordered an MRI and referred me to a neurologist. I have a great deal of respect for her because of this. I hope you have a relaxing weekend and I will continue to follow your posts. Please let me know if I can do anything for you. HUGS
