My pdoc worked me in this morning.  I should be handling things better than what I am so I called and got worked in.  I have been crying all morning!!  I cried while in the waiting room for two hours.  I am a wreck right now.  He upped my tegretol a little until I can get my blood work done to see what the levels are at right now.  I go back next Thursday for a check up to see how I am doing.  He is leaving the seroquel alone right now and the neurontan.  We will see how this goes for now.  I react to tegretol really quickly so hopefully I will start feeling better in a few days.  I am going to bed to sleep for a while.  My mom is watching the babies for me.

I'm glad you went. Hopefully the boost of Tegretol will help stave off the depression and anxiety a bit. Do you have a back up med for when your anxiety gets overwhelming, like seroquel or ativan?

I took ativan for a long time and my body got use to it. I tried valium but it didn't help so now I am taking xanax. It seems to help but it gives me a headache but I just don't care about that. I can withstand a headache in order to feel better.

Thanks for your support. I know that I can always count on you for it. My husband seemed to back pedal some after I went to my pdoc. He is under a lot of stress too so I know that he was speaking due to it. Usually he is supportive and understanding; I think that today he was speaking of himself and not me unconsciously. After I went to my pdoc, he said that he was glad that I went. Yeah, I wanted to just knock him one at the time.

Thanks,
