Thanks for the update! I'm sorry to hear about the problem with your son and phone calls and all today and all the stress that caused. I think it was okay to lie to him about talking with the gf in this case. He didnt need the added stress of worrying about her right now, and there hadnt been any major emergency. It's very easy to get pulled into other people's issues (paranoid ideas, etc) though... I've experienced that one myself! Regardless of the issue today, it does sound like is getting settled and doing well. I'm glad to hear that.

I suffer from depression only. Never had anxiety problems. I've never found a medication that works for me. I was recently on lithium and lamictal, both mood stabalizers, and the lamictal made my depression worse. The lithium seemed to help at 600mg but I started having panic attacks, and the next lowest dose wasnt enough to get any relief. My doctor took me off lamictal about 10 days ago and I took myself off lithum about 5 days ago. I see him on Thursday and I'm really struggling with whether or not I even want to try another med right now. Theyre just so expensive, take so long, so many side effects... and they never work. We'll see.

I just starting seeing my current therapist about 10 weeks ago. I had a very bad experience with my last T just before switching where shed dropped me as a client and refused any termination while I was in a partial hospitalization program. Feelings relating to that are still an issue. I've been in the partial hospitalization program twice and inpatient once (only for a few days) in the last few months. I wrote a bunch on the psych board tonight about the issue I'm having with my therapist if you're interested, but it's mostly whining!

I see my T again on Thursday. I go twice a week, Tues and Thurs, except for the second Tues of every month (she has a training thing). I'm thinking about cancelling Thurs though just to give myself some time to think things through.

Thank you for asking.. I know you werent expecting that much of an answer! But I do appreciate it.

You and your son are both in my thoughts.
