Hi there sweetie, Med changes suck.....................I know I have been on so many over the past three years I do not know what works and what is causing what.
I know I do not have the huge problems you deal with daily my friend but I do know that you have to work through this and knowing you I feel this is something you can and will do.
When your fears and depression have the best of you, it is easy to feel that things will not get any better.
Challenge your negative thinking with positive statements and realistic thinking. When encountering thoughts that make you feel fearful or depressed, challenge those thoughts by asking yourself questions that will maintain objectivity and common sense.
My darlin Gems, you know I am a stay in the moment person which I do fall off of the wagon frequently but I try my best to get back up and on my way.
I know you do this to so I am going to post my magic recipe........
It's really important for myself to be able to stay in the moment. I have found that by avoiding things like dwelling on past mistakes or worrying about the future I am usually able to get done what needs to get done when it needs to get done.
If you can learn to stay present in the moment then you can rapidly and gracefully change your life for the better! Practice staying present today. Take deep breaths often. Really feel what you are doing.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Yesterday is gone forever, tomorrow is not yet here and Today is really all we ever have. We may have the memories of yesterday but it is over and so we do not need to continue to live in it. Well tomorrow is not here so it might be nice to set goals for tomorrow, or dream of what we would like it to be, but again it is not here yet so we can not live in it until it gets here. So we can only live in the here and now of Today. What a wonderful gift. ~ A A
Come on my Gems........you can do this. Just keep on talking to us. We are here so feel the love.
The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.

I hate to say this, but your husband sounds a little immature. Please forgive me for saying this. It is as if he has no respect for what you need. I hope that he comes around and starts seeing things for what they are. It makes me mad that he made jokes about you needing some space. And the fact that he played his video games so loud. That is so disrespectful. Can you go in your room and get some quiet time? Or maybe take a nice soak in the tub. I hope that you feel better soon.
Oh, and Paul's been to his counciller today-he has been banned from caffeine. Maybe to much caffiene is to explain for him being so clingy. It does do such funny things to your head.
