Hi Mystic,
Just a quick side note, my cycles have gotten progressivly better and hoping that one month soon I will forget that my period is coming up so I can stop freaking out when I anticipate it! Good luck this month, also, I know when I was first starting lex I kept waiting for things to get worse when I started to feel better, you know what, a lot of times I have a day where I am feeling off, however, I have been able to bounce back, since upping my dose, those days seem to be fading and I am feeling much better. I am looking forward to seeing what 20mg will do for me as I just started today. Good luck, sorry your feeling bad, as a therapist I might suggest that you keep a symptoms and feeling scale journal. Each day write your physicial feelings that this depression/anxiety has given you, I can give you some examples of mine, feeling broken hearted, feeling numb, having very negitive thoughts present in my brain ect, also a scale of 1-10 how you are feeling that day overall. Slowly you will see your symptoms fade, unfortunetly fighting this disease seems to be such a process which takes time and as much strenght as God will give. You will start to feel better, I know we are all going to come to a day where we wake up and feel comfortable and happy in our own skin.
God Bless.
Lexy

> P.S- Jlynne, i think i might be crashing too, i dont really feel the drugs anymore, is that good or bad? i seem to be obsessing a bit more than i did last week...:S, i am on day 13 at 5mg of Paxil...i guess i'll wait and see.

Magdalena, you have so many things going on inside of you, I am not surprised that you feel this way. You are also anticipating the first visit with your therapist, am I right? Maybe you are a little apprehensive? That would be understandable; that little girl inside you feels very vulnerable.

Also, you have some intimacy issues - how are things with your boyfriend?

Maybe some of the others here can speak more specifically to the Paxil - as I wrote to you previously, I had a bad experience with it. But it does seem that you are still doing so much better than you were a week or so ago. Am I right?

Sleep well, little one. I would sing you a lullaby, if I could:^) ...jlynne

Good Morning Magdalena...Thank you soooo much for your kind words number one...You are special...You are not feeling great and you reach out to someone else...now that definately should tell you about yourself...YOUR AN ANGEL...And number two...I was the one on paxil and it took me exactly 6 weeks to get good results..actually to really look and say wow I feel pretty good..and I had great results on Paxil..but the problem with the paxil and lex and everything else is we do expect it to just kick in and we are going to feel great...and jlynne was right you probably do feel better than you did last week but we are so wanting to be perfect...So hang in there girlfriend and it will kick in..you are also on a very low does... very low...I think in the end I was on 30 but it was good experience I had no panic and my depression was good..I was on it hmmmm 7 years...and EM was on it also and I think that she liked it too...So hang in there and I know you are going to get better maybe an increase would help...I do also know that when I was on it I had to take xanax a couple times of day for the anxiety and it helped greatly...As you already know we are all here for you and want you to feel better and you will...Have a great day and hope to talk to you soon...A friend Mystic...ps thanks again for your kind post...

Hey Em...I'm on the 10 for now wanted to get through my daughters baby shower which is next sunday then maybe will make a switch i have been feeling good until now I'm really feeling bad the last couple of days...I hope and pray that next week will be good..I can take anything right now just I have to get through next sunday...But I think that at that point I might go up to 15mgs..but you sound good and you are getting some improvement...like i said the drs and everyone want you to think that this is a miricle drug and will kick in way before anything else did...and it is not true for us and that is ok we can wait for the benefits and we are sooooooo close...so hang in there and talk to you soon..have a great day and let us know how you did today....A friend Mystic

Omigosh - I'd almost be afraid to wear it out in public, in case I'd get mugged!!! It sounds gorgeous and sparkly. I hope you get the ring (& man, of course) of your dreams :-)

Hey Girls,
> hahaha, I am really excited and wish I were running around with "the ring on my finger". The ring that I like the best was a 2.00 carat Asscher cut (its like a square emerald cut named after the man who cut all the royal jewels) it has a layer of 24 smaller diamonds that go around it and 24 diamond on the sides and fron of the platnium, even the prongs have diamonds!!!! My hand was shaking when I had it on... BLLLIIINNNGGGG, just hoping it will be mine someday.

Hi Mystic - I read your post from Thurs. night, sounds like you are a bit down. Remember it's just temporary & probably very effected by your dental work, plus worrying about the shower -- that is normal stress. Unfortunately, in our "delicate" transitional conditions those events can effect us more deeply. But, little by little, you will be able to bounce back more quickly from your worry. Pretty soon you'll be able to take it all in stride and actually ignore those worrisome thoughts!

As far as your time of the month, mine has gotten better each month. I would say, after about 5 cycles, I have a few hours maybe 2x during the 10 prior days where I feel anxious, angry, sad, etc. Not bad compared to a full 2 weeks of wanting to scream at everyone or drive my car into the river!

You're getting there, don't give up!

Hi JLynne -
I never did mention how proud you should be of yourself to write about your abuse. I know you know you are not alone! Very brave and I hope you can make peace with it some day.

I too worried about the upping & crashing. I am at 20mg and I think I'm going to be able to stay here. But, to get even better and remove some side effects, I may ask for something else. It is scary cuz I don't know how long I'll be on meds - for only a year? Will my brain get re-trained? Or all the way through menopause to support me thru the hormone changes? Once your anxiety levels are under control, you won't worry about all that so much. I can write that I am concerned about all that, but the good thing is that I don't obsess over it or let it bother me too much.

You will get happy and you will feel more balanced. Just hang in there and keep doing the things for yourself that you know are right!!!
~ Lynne

Lynne...I know that it is hard for people to come out about their abuse but it has to be said..They are not alone and they did not do anything wrong...we all need to work past the abuse and the sickness that was forced on us from another sick person...We were young and we had no control and that is the problem that most of us have is that we have control issues as to not being able to control things and think we are losing control..So it is my belief the best thing for us to do is to get the control back the best that we can and to live our lives to the fulliest and if this medication helps us then so be it...We cant go back we cant make these people feel bad we can only try to make ourselves ok and to know that it doesnt have to determine the rest of our lives...We only have one life to live and I surely dont want to wake up when I'm in my 80's and say shouldve couldve wouldve...I want to be able to feel good..be anxiety free...and to help as many people as I can ...I want to feel loved and make people feel loved as we should have all had when we were growing up...but we can get it now by being happy and hopefully depression free..there is so much out there that we all need to experience and see...Sorry this is the last that I will say on the subject and I truely apoligize if this post has made anyone uncomfortable I dont mean to do that I just want everyone to understand that we are all here to help each other and I'm very grateful..I feel that I have found a whole group of friends that care and that my friends is a great feeling..Take care and lynne thank you for caring....Mystic

I most definetly had problems in the beginning. I thought I was going to go completely crazy. I was very, very anxious. I had the jitters where I felt like I was shaking on the inside. I developed mysterious twitches in my face and my jaw felt very strange. For someone who began lex with problems obsessing over body symptoms being serious diseases, these side effects were very frightening to me. I wasn't sure if they were from lex or some illness. I found this board by chance one evening while looking for info on lex. From that point on I knew that I was gonna be okay. There were others going through similar things and were coming through them and feeling better than ever. I was given hope. That's why I continue to post here. To help others. Plus, I really began to enjoy conversations with everyone who seemed to really understand and accept me for who I am. I think I will continue to come here for support for a long, long time. Hopefully you feel a sense of hope coming here too. Having hope is the key to beating all of this. Hang in there. You'll be okay. Mrs. C

Hi Mystic, I am very sorry to hear about your abuse. I can only imagine how difficult that has been for you to overcome. I am also so glad that you saw someone and feel good about it. My therapist also suggested that EMDR may help me with my obsessive thoughts. It's worth a try! He gave me some websites to go to so that I can learn more about it. If you would like them, let me know. Thanks for caring so much about me and all the others and I hope you know that you really matter to me as well. You have been a bright light thru some very difficult days. Now that we are both doing much better maybe we can work through what causes us to do this to ourselves. I sure hope so. Life is so precious and I want to enjoy it! Talk to ya soon. Mrs. C

Mystic and Jlynne, you are both wonderful and brave women. Your goal is to help others and it truly is a blessing to have you here to offer your experiences to all of us. No one is here to judge anyone else and I applaud you for being able to rise above the abuse you suffered and try to be there for other people. Looking forward to many happy days for us all, Mrs. C

Hi everyone - I posted this on PB, thought I'd leave a note here too. I'll be on vacation from work next week (not going anywhere exciting, but it sure will be a good break!). I don't go on-line at home much so won't be participating next week - didn't want anyone to worry :-).

Have a great week everyone and I know there will be all sorts of new stories and wonderful successes when I get back the following week. Take care!!
