Hey Guys,
Wow! How busy I have been. I went to work with my dad working on some client cases with him and also went to my boyfriends to cook him dinner because he is in the middle of his law school exams. His computer crashed so we had to run to my house change out computer parts and all sorts of crazy stuff. I am now just warn out! I went to the psychiatrist today and told her my PMS whoas. She prescribed me Klodipin to take once or twice a day the week before my period as needed. She said it would take the edge off my depression/anxiety during this time. She also told me to take a good vitamin B complex and get a lot of excercise! Well hope everyone is doing really well. I am going to bed and will talk to you all tomorrow!!!
Love ya
Lexy

Hey Lexy...glad you are doing better....that sounds like a plan that is what my dr said also to take xanax at those times when I'm having a hard time from the hormones...I know that Klonapin lasts longer than xanax...I hate meds so I usually dont take any besides the lexapro but I know that I can...So you must be soooo happy to be home and with family and the boyfriend..yahoo...Well I'm off to work just printed out some great pics so that i can show all the patients hahahah...Take care everyone..Luvya alllllll Mystic

Hi Everyone!
I'm sorry I haven't been posting. I read every day and love hearing how everyone is doing. I've been thinking about you & your babies Mystic! Is there a hospital website we could go on and see his picture or would that be too much a violation of anonymity?!?!? I'd love to see that little cutie pie!

I'm doing okay, had a couple of rough days right before my period last week where I got very obsessive, anxious & depressed. I'm just tired of it. I'm also still very tired, speaking of tired! I feel sleepy as well as foggy. I fell asleep - sound asleep - at a stoplight the other day! I also rear-ended someone at an intersection this weekend (not bad, I was just rolling to a stop & didn't stop far enough away from her van!) due to feeling foggy & not paying attention. I gradually switched taking the Lex to mid-afternoon since that is when I am most awake. The switch seems to have helped with the insomnia, thank goodness. I want to call my doctor, but feel like I'm just being a whiny hypochondriac and should just deal with it! But the 2 above incidents make me think I better do something.

I'm also sick of the weight gain. I've gained 15 lbs since December and I am a person who has always been underweight and never had to diet. So, this is very unusual & I think it has to be due to the meds. I know I am 40 & perimenopausal so weight gain is inevitable, but this was a big jump in a short time. I'm walking 20 min. on my treadmill about 4 times per week & that makes me feel better.

Sooooo, other than that my life is fine. My almost 8-year old is really improving in her behaviors and her attention in school. There are still some issues there, but I don't think they warrant special services. I have a tutor for her and that seems to help her reading. My ex is being a pain. He changes the days he sees Lizzie every week and doesn't see anything wrong with that. It wouldn't bother me except that it's really bothering her. I've been very flexible over the past 7 years and I've just had it now that it upsets Lizzie to have such uncertainty each week. She gets very homesick for me & our house when she's at her Dad's. His house is not very homey and he has 2 male roommates (they are decent guys, but unstable like her Dad).

Work is busy but tolerable. We're still short one person so I am recruiting for 2 territories and not doing a great job for anyone. Hard on my ego as I am motivated by pleasing vs. money!

My husband & I are getting along great, even though I have all my insecurities & problems. We've been married less than 2 years. He graduated from an MBA program in May 2003 and still hasn't found anything steady. He's pretty depressed about it which is hard for me because I can't "fix" it for him! It's a big ego thing for him since I make the bulk of the money. But even with that weight on him, he remains very calm, practical & steady, thank goodness. He teaches marketing, does a few mortgage loans - but nothing solid or at the income level we need. Thank goodness for my job. Which I better get back to now!

Thanks for listening. It sort of feels good to write out all the stuff that is going on. Anakin, that is sooooo cool about the Packers player. What a gift!! Lexy, I'm glad your p-doc gave you Klonopin. Let us know how that works on your next period. Mag, how is your "lub" life? You are such a bright spot! Simus & Jlynne, thanks for all your wisdom, even when you're not feeling well yourselves! Mystic, thanks for keeping us all togther and caring so much!! I'm sure I left someone out, but I think about you all & read all the posts, sending good thoughts your way!!

~ Lynne

> I took paxil for awhile and switched to lex for the weigth gain on paxil was insane for me...Lex is ok for me so far....how long did u take it?

I took if for about a month. Weight gain was minimal, however I found myself unmotivated and reticent, also not inclined to engage socially. It was more benign than Luvox for sure. Just didn't seem to be doing too much for me and I was sleeping way too much. Phil

Hi everyone, I have not posted in awhile and feel so out of touch with everyone. Life has really taken on a frantic pace and I am having a hard time keeping up. I called in sick today just so that I could get caught up on all the things I have let go around the house. I am writing a paper for my abnormal psych class and also trying to study for a final next week. The kids are starting soccer and finishing up dance. The dance is a killer because recital time is coming and they practice almost every day! Soccer is three times a week sometimes 4. I'm dying! I went to the doctor today for a recheck on upping my dosage to 20mgs. My blood pressure was 140/70. That is high for me but she did not seem concerned about it. I dont have to go back for three months. Of course, I spent almost the entire day in a black mood worrying about my blood pressure. If anyone has some knowledge in this area I would appreciate any comments. My obsessive personality is screaming out for help with this. Hopefully I will be able to "let it go" soon. Well, that's it for me right now. I hope to hear from some of you to let me know how you all are doing. Luv to all of you. Mrs. C

I have high blood pressure, at one time it was 150/100...No one seemed to be too concerned about it, but when I lost some weight it went down...it is probably back up again though,,,, usually they try diet, no salty or really fatty foods first to try to monitor it before oing anything drastic like meds... Dont worry, I am always dying of something too....I love to tan but am convinced i will have skin cancer, I smoke, but am convinced i will have lung cancer, and I probably will...but until then...

Hey Ya'll
I have been emailing with a great lady who is taking lexapro for anxiety, I invited her over here for friendship and support. She is great, I believe her posting name will be anxious babe. I am excited she is coming and will be a great yo yo addition.
I hope everything is going well. I am doing pretty well, still trying to unwind and allow myself to realize that I am back home with my family and boyfriend, and I finished my masters degree.
Sadly, the job I had been hired for may fall though, I really hope it does not so please say a little prayer for me, my alternitive job is working as a therapist at an inpatient child psychiatric hospital which would be wayyyy more stress but a good experience. Oh well, I am just praying for everything to fall into place.
I went to the pdoc yesterday and she said that it was cool to drink a little wine on the medication and gave me Klodopin to take before my period to help with the mood swings. I will give it a try next month.
Oh and on a good note, I went into a boutique today and the owner asked me if I would model for her shop. She is going to do a few local commercials, magaizines and newspapers so that is really exciting, it gives me good incentive to get back to working out!!!
Hope everyone is well, love ya
Lexy

Hey Anakin, your post really made me laugh. I quit smoking because I was so afraid of the diseases that I was warned about. I also stopped going to the tanning salons in the spring because of skin cancer but I will tan in the real sunlight! I'm weird that way. I have a mole on my leg that I have been worrying about lately and I put sunscreen all over it when we went to fla last month. Now I have this little white spot on my thigh! Pretty silly! I still worry about all of these things! My doctor today told me not to worry about the blood pressure because mine is always normal and I was probably just nervous. I had to laugh because telling me not to worry is like telling me not to breathe. I am in therapy now to try to overcome this problem. Thanks for replying. How's everything with you these days? mrs. C

> I fell asleep - sound asleep - at a stoplight the other day!

When I was on Lex, I nodded off actually driving down the road more than once. When my head dropped, it would wake me up. Thank God I neither hurt myself or anyone else! It was wierd. There was little warning that I was tired enough to fall asleep.

> I also rear-ended someone at an intersection this weekend (not bad, I was just rolling to a stop & didn't stop far enough away from her van!) due to feeling foggy & not paying attention.

I hated that foggy feeling, and I was afraid of causing an accident too.

> I want to call my doctor, but feel like I'm just being a whiny hypochondriac and should just deal with it! But the 2 above incidents make me think I better do something.

Please do something. It's better than looking back and saying, "I wish I would have...".
