Hi there kiddo.
I was so happy to see you've posted, been wondering about you..........
looks like you've been to hell and back. I'm so sorry for ya, your such a special babbler. :-)
Greg pretty much above said thoughts I've also thought. Be kind to yourself.... don't take on too much, good or bad. Let yourself stabalize somewhat, take care of your health first and then decide what's next.
I can't imagine the pure torture that must be, trying medication after medication......... I've only tried 2.. and couldn't handle the side effects or withdrawals of either one so I never went back to try again. Just talk therapy is it for me. I'm too chicken. So maybe this'll be best for you..... sort of wiping the slate clean and trying again.
So........ are you in texas now????? Still have the boyfriend in cali?
If you get a chance..... please let me........ all of us, know how your new pdoc and appt. go. Can ya tell... so many worry about you..... you've touched a lot of people with your wonderful personality.
Please take care of yourself. W/love, Kristi

hi! how are you?
thanks for your kind thoughts & words, they mean alot to me. i'm awright now, i think. i never know. i've never been all right, really--i'm still trying to jump on that path to Becoming All Right. i've scarcely got a foothold!
i've been to an extremely weird place, the cold state hospital, but it wasn't hell; it was terrible but interesting--the majority of my unit was paranoid schizophrenics, and they cottoned to me, they trusted me, told me their stories. i feel more human somehow...
everyone there pegged me as "happy-go-lucky," they could not fathom why i'd tried to off myself, and i offered no true explanation: i wanted only to be released. i laugh alot, i put on a wonderful facade, i seem normal! i did not let the pdocs to get to the core of my being, and because it was a state hospital, they were too rushed and hurried to even bother trying.
my boyfirend is here in austin, i'm wondering where you got cali from! i was born there, but my boy has been in texas for years. he takes good care of me; i am in love, and the day after i got out of the hospital he took me to a fancy restaurant and told me that her likes me better off meds, that this is the Sar he knows better--which baffled me, because i am going through med withdrawal and at the height of strange anxiety--my hands and legs all tremble, and i want to be on prozac and klonopin again.
and how are you, sweet baby? i'm at the library and internet time is limited to 30 mins, otherwise i'd dig through PSB and read up on you; however, these meanie librarians are curbing my internet addiction by proxy. it is their job.
please keep me updated: i miss you!
