Are you feelign better today? When is your next Dr's appt? I have felt the way you're feeling, and usually adjust my meds (my pdoc usually disccusses a plan of action if I "go south" so I know how to adjust) It would appear that the past couple of days have been hard for a few of us. Hang in there.
With all the SSRIs you're on and at the ridiculously high dose of Effexor, I'm not surprised, but yes, taking them later than normal will start the withdrawl process, esp on the Effexor. You shuold set an alarm on your phone, or something you can carry in your purse or someting every day or just take them as soon as you wake up and Shannon is right, we've all been having a bad time of the irritability, including me, my stable good mood of almost 3 weeks went in the toilet this w/e, no sleep, tired, and irritable, snappy to my poor husband, picking little fights, god, just like before meds, but not nearly as intense, thankfully!
Thank you Nick, I needed that today. Woke up great, now all emotional, between the classical music, the beautiful dark thunderstorm outside, words of encouragement and affection, and the fact that you have finally gotten the rich reward of stability and are finally happy I am crying, but in a good way. you know how it is with teh good tears. Thank you! And thank the powers that be for my precious husband, who does lose patience like any human being would, but loves me intensely in spite of and he said sometimes BECAUSE of being BP because of all the good things, too. I am a truly blessed person and I am thankful every day of my life.
I'm very sorry to hear of your friends dx, what stage is it? How old is she?
God, your friends always seem t be having some kind of bad problems, bless your (and thiers) hearts! I hope they turn out ok, esp the cancer victim. I don't know too much about cancer, totally out of my realm.
Well, yesterday was just a precursor to today, totally on the ground. Booom, down i went. up at 4 a.m., still up, exhausted, weak, depressed I hope it doesn't last! I'm going to bed now, will look forward to hearing from you. You sound ok, still doing good?
Talk soon, love ya,
