Thanks for the reply! and a positive one at that. OK, I feel there is hope that maybe this is the one that will help me. I usually always have that attitude but it never quite works out. when I was on Trileptal, after about 10 days my skin started itching so bad that I felt like I had somethig crawling on me! when your eyelashes itch, now that is a weirde feeling.
Thanks again.....I need encouragement! My husband is like, "Another med?" oh well..
Me give up? Never! Serafena thanks for the pep talk. I really have been feeling very very badly lately. My PDoc said (I could not wait until my next appointment, had to go on and go early) that because my mania went soooooooo long untreated and after reading my life's history, all ups and downs and side ways crazy things I have done and that have happened to me, schizophrenia was secondary to BPI and PTSD. He thinks maybe that is why standard approaches have not been met with optimal or even marginal results so far. But I am encouraged with each new medication I try that "this will be the one." If I did not cling to that hope, I would not be the great person I know I can be. So many people, all through my life have told me how strong I am. I just never really saw myself that way. I always thought I was just stupidly optimistic ha ha ha ha ha
Thanks again. I know I can always come here to get a boost of confidence and some on-line hugs
