Simus - That's a good thought. I was on it about 8 or 9 weeks at 10mg when I started backsliding, so went to 20mg the week after that. I do wonder if I had ridden it out another week or 2 whether I would've been okay. I hope 10 will work. I had a little anxiety yesterday, which was a 10-day. Don't know if it was my imagination taking over or if it was really the decrease!

I talked to my therapist yesterday and she agreed that going down to 10 and then back up to 20 on the day before I ovulate and the day of, then also on the 5 days before my period may just do the trick. I'm excited to get thru the next month and see how it works!

Thanks for your continued support :-)

yeah ive tried 15 for the past 3 days, no difference which leads me to believe 20 wouldnt be that different either...

Bad news, my godmothers husband, my uncle has a brain tumor...he started acting all funny for no apparent reason twice in the past three months, and like passed out, maybe a seizure, and he has a left frontal giloma???Not good. Just in time for the wedding. I hope he is ok, I think sometimes things are worse than they sound. No he isnt going to live 30 more years, but I think the life expectancy is around 5-7...it is a low grade one, if it is inoperable they will treat with radiation and seizure meds....Not what I wanted to hear right now.

Hi Anakin, I'm sorry to hear of your news! I have a good friend who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable astrocytoma, grade 4 brain tumor. She is trying all sorts of treatments that could slow the growth. The newest drug is Temodar. It's supposed to really help. Every year they come up with new ones! The longer he lives, the more likely the chance they'll find something new for him. She's also doing lots of alternative stuff like acupuncture, energy work, massage, diet changes, herbs, etc. It may not cure her of the tumor, but it seems to be keeping some of the side effects at bay. Keep a positive thought and you never know what could happen :-)

Honey anything that is bothering me right now is nothing compared to hearing that your mom has cancer. I would be totally devastated if it were my mom. I don't think any medication in the world can keep you from feeling awful over that. I will be praying for you both. Mrs. C

Hi Mystic, thanks for your encouraging words! She has such a strong personality and such good support, that I expect her to beat this thing!

How is baby Ryan???? Hope you're having fun with him. Are you feeling better? Have you gotten any rest?

I'll be out of town the next several days. Going to Philly for work, so will be out of touch. I'll catch up next Monday!

Take care everyone!

Hey, yo-yo's . . . kind of quiet on the board today, eh? I am feeling a little spacey, myself . . . not really *bad*, just kind of disconnected from the world right now. I hope you are all well - are we approaching 'that time of the month' again? You younguns seem to get quiet during that time (*smile*).

Magdalena, are you still with us?? Seems like ages since you posted. Miss you, girl:~)

I am hanging out in open tonight, in case anyone feels like dropping in.

(((HUGS))) (((Sista's)))

Hey Jlynne, yep my friend arrived this afternoon. How fun for me. My PMS was very mild this month hopefully because of my increase to 20mgs. So far no cramps either. Well now that I have covered all of that important info about me, how are you. Feeling disconnected? That can be good or it can be bad depending on how you look at it. Ha Ha. Anyway, hope you feel better tomorrow. Bye, Mrs. C

hey guys, i am still here and i am doing alright. everyday is still a constant battle but theres really no other choice right? i'm not sure if i should increase because i still get that anxious feeling when i have to go and do something but i guess its not as bad as it used to be. I guess i have just been feeling unmotivated about everything..its really not as bad as i am making it sound but the truth is i feel lazy and still feel like i never sleep enough although i sleep almost 10 hours a night. anyway, besides that i am doing good. :)

Jlynne i know that disconnected feeling all too well, it comes and goes very often for me and when i am there i feel so lonely. what usually helps is a good talk to someone close, makes you feel you have purpose in the world around you, at least thats what it does for me.

Mystic how have you been? i do read the posts, are you thinking of increasing? i want to increase but i still have bad side effect from only being on 10mg...the two that interfere are the oversleepiness and the sexual side effects. :S
not fun.

on the other hand i am very in love and its been so long that i still have to pinch myself to make sure i am not dreaming. There are apprehensions because i am dating someone younger than me, i wonder if i am just leading myself on, but i know i am just being silly, i can see how much i mean to him, i just think i always need something to worry about.

im sorry ihavnt been posting lately but i have been thinking that if i dont post as often then i dont have to think about my disorder as often then maybe it will just go away...lol, stupid i know but maybe if i post just once a week then maybe i will feel better, it is worth a shot.

thank you all for the tremendous support and freindships you have offered, you cant know how much you have helped me:)

i will post once a week to see how things are going, i hope you are all feeling some sort of releif from the unpleasantness that we all struggle with, i am lucky to have found you.

sorry if i am sounding really down but for some reason right now i am kinda feeling down..more of a void feeling rather than sad.

the beautiful weather on the other hand is getting me outside more and that is helping a great deal as well.

goodnite to everyone of you and i wish you all the sweetest dreams.

(a Hug for each of ya);)

Mag

hi jlynne...the disconnection is common for me, i'm pretty much used to it by now. for some it's a symptom of anxiety. for me i think it's a side effect from the lex which i'm still hoping will go away. time of the month is coming and i'm going to FL tomorrow with my BF to go to a wedding, so i'm a bit anxious. hope you are well.

Hey everyone...This doesnt seem to be a good week for many...I feel like I'm just crashing more and more...Everyday for me is a struggle and I just feel like I'm not going to pull out of it this time...I am sick of the ups and downs on this med...I feel like it never is even and that I'm just not coming out of it..I'm scared all the time and I feel like I'm useless to anyone and that I just dont know how much longer I can do this...I know that I'm not helping myself by not going up on my dosage to 15mgs but I listen to other people and it just doesnt sound like it does them any good..and my cycle is like every other friggin week!!!!...I should be happy I have a great great great life I have a great job good pay..great husband...wonderful new grandson...wonderful daughter and I still cant be happy I still struggle and feel like this isnt going to go away ever again!!!!!!!!!!...

I feel like I shouldnt be posting because I dont want to bring anyone down I try to be positive when I post not so negative but I just cant right now..I know that it is my own fault for being so damn phobic about the meds but I convince myself that this just isnt going to work for me and that if i go up I will be worse...My mind is just a terrible thing it works against me so much...

I'm sorry guys I wish for you all to feel good and I appreciate everything you do for me...I pray every night for all of us to find the happiness and peace of mind that we so desperately need..I'm sorry if I bring anyone down and will be back when I feel better and can contribute something to the group...I love you all...Take care Mystic

Hey Mystic I am not use to talking to you here. lol I am so sorry that you are feeling so bad. You are such a wonderful, wonderful caring person. You are always so worried about everyone else. Well now its time for us to help you. You are going to be fine. I also am a phobic about medicine, but you need to try the 15 mil. It cant hurt you it will help you. I will be praying extra for you and I am sure everyone else here will too. You need to try and relax and take it easy and not worry so much. YOu have to give yourself a break. You need to take care of you. I am sure that you are going to bounce back from this, you always do. Anyway God bless and I will talk to you later, your friend forever, Ali
