Well life will feel different, and in my case so much better. I now live a life that no longer features an obsession with my own death and no huge monster load of life resting on my shoulders. Funny i just finished a tour in kuwait back in the Jan-may time frame. SO nice to meet you, hope you are feeling better, and what kind of writing are you doing?
Well i can understad a bit, i am a military firefighter and there is a huge stygmia attached here also. We are supposted to super tough and never have any feelings or problems at all. The truth is that we are human, with all that is involved in that.
I to write fiction, mostly scifi but fiction none the less. Hopefully you will spend time here and share some of your stories, i for one allways look forward to hearing about new things. Plus i am a big believer that the more you air your problems and sadnesses, the easier they are to bear. Those who never talk bear the greatest burden of us all.
As for weird little country, my experiences in the military were of a distinctly "military" sort of weird. LOL LOL LOL

I just recently was given Zyprexa, it has been great so far. This is medication #9 as I have a bad time with the side effects. You are so right, you have to stay positive and use the gifts you were given to there fullest, even if they seem unimportant to you, they may be of great value to someone else. People never stop to think that even the smallest act of kindness can have a great impact on someone in such a positive way. At point, I went off all my meds, as BP's are famous for doing, and tried Ayurvedic Herbs. Now I am sure they work for some people, but they sent me spiraling into depression like I have never experienced given that I lean towards mania and rapid cycling. I wanted to go all natural, I wanted to believe that I did not have BP, I wanted to make myself well by sheer will. But none of that happened. Just accepting the fact goes along way to be med compliant, do everything you can to feel well and stop taking yourself so seriously as I have a tendancy to do.
Be well, talk to me soon and I will talk to you soon.
shebsy feel free to check my profile and send me some reading material. I would love to read what you have written. Funny all my doctors are Indian and i have found them extremely helpfull and much more attentive than american doctors. Gofigure
It seems you have found a home here, hopefully we can keep this board hopefull and filled with love and help for others.
Thank you for responding. I really am smart enough to know that there is a "snakeoil" salesman on every corner. I guess I was just grasping at straws, anything to keep me from realizing the truth. But I have come to accept it. My new med is doing great but this morning i have a rash on my neck and chest but I changed soap last week also, so I am thinking it may just be contact dermatitis and hopefully not a react to the med. I will give it a day or two and see if it clears up then call PDoc if not better.
Have a great day and I will talk to you soon!
