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...".

> It sort of feels good to write out all the stuff that is going on.

Nope, my client is a pathological gambler. I had to diagnose him and plan treatment. I think we should be famous though. How's that Oprah thing panning out? Has anyone actually contacted her? Hmmmmm. Mrs. C

Hey Lexy, good to hear from you. My client is a pathological gambler. Easy to diagnose but planning for treatment has me stumped because he is in jail. I have been researching but have been coming up empty for people in prison. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

You go girl! with that modeling job. You must be pretty hot stuff. Oh to be young again! See ya. mrs. C

Hi EM, I have been on lex about six months now. I still have the "brain farts" daily. Is that what you are talking about. Kind of like losing your mind but then it comes back in a second or two!? I wouldn't worry too much about it unless its is really bothering you. Maybe you'll have to try a different time to take your lex or try another med altogether. Just my thoughts. mrs. C

Hi Mrs. C. - I just happen to work for a company that manages the healthcare in prisons and jails. Mental Health, of course, is a big part of what we do. I'm a recruiter. I think you said you are in New York. I can give you the names of some people to contact who can tell what sort of treatment plans are available for the incarcerated. Do you want me to email the info. to you? I think that would be better than me posting all their names and numbers on this site. You can reach me at Ldavis at cmsstl dotcom.

Hi Em - I have the fogginess too. I've been on Lex for 6 months or so. I switched my time to mid-afternoon since that is when I am most alert, thinking that my natural awake time would counteract it. I'm still too foggy for my liking, but I sleep better now, my insomnia is pretty much gone. So, playing around with the time may help a bit. I'm going to call my doctor about it though. I don't want to switch meds either, but maybe there's something else I can add. I'll let you know if I find out anything spectacularly helpful!
