Hey Everyone of my darling Yo Yos
Hope everyone is doing really well. I am doing pretty well myself. Been at the beach for about the past two week. I am feeling tan and pretty great! It is wonderful to just escape for a little bit. How are all of you doing? Bride, happy birthday...the big day has got to be approaching, how goes the mood swings...where are you going on your honeymoon??
How is everyone doing on their meds, any big drama while I was gone, I had like 300 emails when I got back and as much as I love you all, there is just not enough time in the day to read all those!!!! I have cut down to 10mg of lex and am feeling pretty well. Less irritated then I did when I was on higher doses. Its weird I did feel 1000000 times better on 20 than I did 10 and now I feel better lower. Meds are so weird.
My period should come around the 29th so I am kinda waiting to see about PMS this month. So far so good, Ive got my klodipin in my purse just incase I get all emotional. Well that enough from me...ya'll write me when you can!!
Love ya...
Lexy
So when are we going on the Oprah show?

B--
Woo-Hoo!!

Let me tell you, though, you need to mention this weekly for two months PRIOR to the big event! That's what I do!

At any rate, Happy Belated Birthday!!
I hope 23 is a great year, and, I assure you (IMO), it'll even get better!

Shar

Good to have you back!

Do you think that maybe your lower dose is because of lower stress in your life? Just wondering...

God bless.

Hey there Lexy,
So great to hear your southern accent again! You have been missed. It's great that you feel so happy and healthy. I am happy for you. I feel pretty darn good myself!! A few of our friends are not doing so well though. Mystic is having a hard time with her increase. She hasn't really felt the effects of upping to 15mgs yet. Anxious Babe is also not feeling her best and is afraid that her lex is not working anymore. We all need your input and advice. Looking forward to reading your posts. Have a great weekend. Mrs. C

P.S. I got an A on my paper and in my courses. Thanks again for the help you gave!

Hi Mrs. C.,
I am actually feeling pretty good - I am actually having a glass of wine and trying to unwind, I went shopping with my mom and daughter tonight and I am waiting for my husband and son to come home- they had to work about 4 hours away today and traffic is a nightmare so they just called and said they would be home in another hour or so.

I have to admit, as much as I miss them it's nice to have some time to yourself. I really enjoyed it! :) They will be gone again tomorrow because they have to finish this job by Sunday so I am looking forward to another free day with my baby. My husband owns his own construction business.
I was inquiring about those Foxglove flowers and my parents have them but my dad said they are poisonous- is that true? I guess I won't get any this year since my daughter is still so little and puts things in her mouth.
So what are you up to tonight? How do you feel?
Babe

Hey Mrs. C.
Congrats on your A - that is great! Maybe you and Lexy can convince me to get my butt back to school. I am always afraid of having anxiety in class.

God Bless,
Anxious babe

one day at a time.... tell your self each night when ya go to bed tomorrow is gonna be a wonderful day... positive attitude helps tremendously...yex i am on lex and welbutrin. 20 mg lex 150 mg of wel...pray level with GOD and tell him ya need his help... my down fall was i thought i could do everything with out anyones help.. and in actualality we can't do a thing with out the LORD our GOD. so in order to receive we must ask.. knock and the doors will be opened for you!!!that is how i have made it thru the life i have. we have to reprogram our brains to be happy.. positive! happy! i was once in such a bad way that i finally desided to expeiment with my subconcious mind. i made a tape speaking softly to me saying all positive things... i am happy, life is beautiful, i love me, people good, etc... and i played it as i slept... on one of those tape players that keep flipping them selves over and over all night while i slept. it gave me a positive attitude and you can tell your sub that you are happy and it will reprogram you. if ya don't believe me think back to school days, when people made fun of ya or called ya names, it did something to you deep inside didn't it??? this is a way to reverse all the negative and bad things that have made you feel less.. do you understand?? sometimes i don't explane things real well..

Hi there everyone. I hope that you all are feeling good. I myself am feeling terrible. I feel like I am slipping into darkness. THose are the only words that can really describe how I am feeling. I was doing so well and now I am depressed and kind of confused feeling. I will keep the faith and keep on and hope I dont go crazy. I am so very tired of feeling this way. I am also sorry I dont post alot. I do pray for all of you everyday. You all have been so wonderful . I am just sick of feeling bad. I was looking so forward to my vacation which started yesterday, 10 days off of work. Now I feel yukko!! Please pray for me and ask God to please help me and all of us. I want to actually have a decent week. THat isnt really asking too much. Well I am sorry for being so negative but I am not doing good at all. May God bless and keep all of you in his grace. THanks again for all your words of encouragement, Ali

Mystic,

I thought your message to Sandy was beautiful. Thank you for reaching out, especially during such a hard time in your own life. Unfortunately, as many life-preservers as we throw out to someone, we still can't make them grab onto one... (((Mystic)))

God bless.

Hi, I know that foxglove can make you sick but I am not sure how much you would have to ingest. You are right not to take any chances with your little one. They are pretty flowers though. I am getting ready to go to bed but I thought I would check in on everyone. I am worried about Mystic because I haven't heard from her in a few days. We write eachother everyday using our personal email addresses. I hope that I hear from her soon. I am going to Niagara Falls tomorrow to the casino with my sister and some friends. I am looking forward to the day out. I'm sure that you can relate to that. Enjoy your day with your baby. Mrs. C

Ali, I am sorry that you feel this way. I can relate so well to how you are feeling and I can tell you that it does get better. You may need an increase in your meds or a different med. Just don't give up.You can make it through anything as long as you have hope! I will pray for you and for everyone. Mrs. C

I've had two anxiety attacks--one of them massive--in front of 20+ college students. And I'm the teacher. You can do it.

Hey trucker just read your post on the tape and listening to it as you sleep wow that is great thinking and I have heard of that before ...I'm supposed to be starting something called EMDR which is a type of hypnosis I think that is rapid eye movement and goes back into your childhood or whenver these terrible experiences happened and trys to reprogram your brain to tell it how you wouldve felt as an adult being able to say no and react instead of a child..not sure but it is a man that does it and not sure about that with the things that happened to me as a child but I think I'm willing to try it out....

I have been feeling just horrible lately it has been 1 week on 15mgs and I just thought it would kick in sooner than this..I'm just sooo sick of waiting I just dont know how much longer I can wait to feel better...i'm soooo down and feeling no myself...But I hope that everyone is doing and will catch up when feeling a little better...thanks for the idea trucker it was a very good one!!!!...luvya Mystic

Hi Girls
Really sorry to hear your anxiety is making you feel awful and that 15 does not seem to be "kicking in". I just read the post about Trucker doing the tapes. My dad uses these relaxation tapes on all of his clients who have anxiety. He and his clients swear by them. I will find out there exact names and pass them on to you. They are a set of 4 tapes, which teach you how to relax by using muscle groups, each tape lessens your anxiety and the use of muscle groups and the final goal is that you are able to relax by simpley telling yourself too. As my dad says you cannot be anxious and relaxed at the sametime, you must teach your body/mind to relax and be more comfortable in a relaxed state than a anxious state. Good luck, I will write with the names soon!!!!
Love ya
Lexy

Anxious babe,
I tried the 10mg. & the side effects wouldn't go away so I backed down to 7.5 & have done great. Everytime I would try 10 I would be anxious & nervous-the thing I was suffering with from the beginning.
