Hi Jamie,

Glad that you got that dentist appt over with. You must be relieved now.

Hope that your friend Bob feels better, hope that it isn't cancer. Maybe copd or something like that which can be helped with inhalers and nebulizer.

Remember tomorrow is another day. I hope that it is a good one for you. Getting bills paid makes us feel good. Glad that you are able to do that. I know that it is hard. I am always trying to stretch that money.

Best wishes for a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Jamiee and Karen and everyone!
 
Last round of meds not working, bottomed out so bad I went to yet another Dr. who says I am not bipolar, I have major depression and high anxiety.  Here we go again!  Gave me Pristiq to try.  Will start it this week-end in case I have any bad side effects.  Have been the worst ever lately, sleeping 15 hours a day, going to work, back home to bed.  This is no way to live.  I have lost my optimistic view, I cry for no reason, I do not want to eat, I don't care if I wake up in the morning.  How I am going through this and working full time I do not know.  But I am going to give this med a try and if things do not improve even a little, I am going to ask to be taken out of work.  I can only handle so much at once.  Hubby has been great but so worried about me, it makes me worry about him.
 
Thanks for letting me blow off some steam.  Hoping better days are coming and that you guys are well.
 
Love,
Gem

Hi Gem,

It is great to hear from you. I hope that the pristiq works for you. I take it too. Plus abilify, you might want to check that out. It is a mood stabilizer and helps ads work better.

I am sorry things are so rough right now, but I think once the pristiq starts working you will feel better. It has worked great for me.

Hugs, Karen

PS Thanks for popping in to up date us.

Karen,  I am glad to hear from you.  You must know by now that when you do not hear from me, things are bad and I just keep to myself.  I so miss you.  I am glad that Pristiq is working well for you.  I hope it does for me too.  I am so sick honey, I can hardly even eat.  Must do all I can to be well.  Everyone on this forum inspires me to keep going.

You will Gem, though I don't know how long for sure it takes the pristiq to work, I switched form effexor to it and was taking both at the same time. They are very similar. I was taking 375 mg of effexor a day. That was five capsules. I was getting weary with it as I had been on it for many years. That is another medication to consider, though at high doses it can cause weight gain. I lost 8 pounds when I went off of it.

I really hope that you start feeling better soon. And mention abilify to your doctor. It is used for bipolar but helps as a mood stabliizer and also helps your ad work better.

Hugs, Karen

My Pdoc is at wits end with me, Abilify is the only drug in the class of mood stabilizers that I have not tried.  I was not able to tolerate or stay on anything else for very long.  New Dr. really thinks my high anxiety level was just mimicking mania and that  BP is not an acurate diagnosis.  I will just let the two of them battle it out.  I really don't care as long as I have a little hope that someday, someone can figure out what is going on with me and fix it!  You know how hard it is to keep going when you feel like you are dying.  Atleast new Dr. did complete physical exam and ran every blood test known to man first to rule out any medical conditions that could be causing severe depression.  Nice to know that I am physically healthy, really, but when all you want to do is sleep 24 hrs a day, something is amiss.
 
You are so sweet, thanks as always for being there for me.  And thank goodness Spring is on its way!

so it is 3.30am sat, morn. up all darn night again. more cleaning. i was meant to see the lady fri night, i was exhausted, thus i sent a text that i am unwell and will catch up next week. went down later, (venue) was advised she was there. i felt bad but i needed the rest. seen dr. thurs, 2 hhour wait, and this is with an appt!!! i walked in and said hi john, sat down, well collapsed into the chair actually, he freaked and stuck a thermometer in my ear, i said i am okay but mentally and physically exhausted. then i said this. (verbatum) insomnia sucks, depression sucks, my aches suck, my feet suck and i suck.
 
so, the funny bugger jumped on the scales, he is a very big man, last weight was 115kg, 4 wks ago and he was 107kg. i said john, whats happening, apparently he has been very ill with severe diarreoah, he had to see his doc and he was worried about bowel cancer. subsquent to this he chucked in a few morbid jokes, i said @#$% john and giggled a bit, he said there is still some life yet in the old dog. meaning me!! okay, i was advised due to my choleserol issues and what it does to the heart that i must see the cardiology professor, 31st of this month, this peeved me as i thought my ticker is okay, apparently not. this consultation is not fully covered, ahhh, more money!!!
 
have the eye specialist this tues, annual reveiw, diabetes not flash, hence i am not confident at this point. i am exhausted and over committed, my mate even told me so, and he left after an hr as he could see i was totally drained.
bob is not good. even dissed me by not popping around on his b/day, he does not get on with another mate, and my neighbour said he deliberately by-passed my house as he did not want to share his drinks with my other mate. poor form as my mate shouts him all the time, thus a tad jaded about it. trivial but i did highlight a big show of disrespect towards me. i know he has a bit going on too, but this was not nice. i have let it go, but it bugged me yesterday and today somewhat. geez, i am rambling.
 
got the other qoutes and e-mailed the info of. am very broke, but who isn't. will lay down with the dog for 30 min. i did a bit of mindfulness by just looking at her and not thinking about much. got to ring the housing man so he can do his inspection. (government house) got to study and finish these darn assigmnents as well!! okay i have rambled enough, tired, sore, etc, etc. keep well guys. with healings........jamie.

Wow Jamie,

I hope that your heart is okay. Could this just be precautionary maybe? I hope that it is nothing serious.

Sorry about Bob, I hope that he gets over this. Life goes on you know... It sounds like it is all his problem though. Not yours or your mate's.

I went to the doc today and had to go on another blood pressure pill. I think I have taken it before too. I think it is basically a water pill. Not sure, I will look it up. I am so sick of pills and hate to have to add another to the mix.

Things feel like they are up in the air right now, guess I am a little anxious. So I need to relax and reflect too. Think I will go look at the puppy and get lost in that, as you did. It helps. They lower blood pressure too. lol.. That is what they say anyway. Just worrying about nothing. Stupid, I guess. But it happens to the best of us I am sure.

Take care. Have a great day, get some rest if you can.

Hugs, Karen

okay, hi guys, if i am not freaking, of wich i am i sure hope i settle soon!!!! seen the eye surgeon today-vision 20-20, brilliant, minimal diabetic nuropathy in left eye. he asked how i have been doing, blood pressure is excellent, diabetes, up and down, feet very sore, legs too. expland about my dental, painful extractions, infections about my recent urology operation and my vitamin deficinces, them my heart. well, this sparked him. i said next week i see the cardiologist across the road, told him i have done a echo (heart ultrsound and stress echo, then he said, your eyes should e much worse. this spun me out. he suspects i have a carotid stenosis. narrowing veins from the neck into the heart. i have this test next month. will ask the technician to send the results to the cardiologist. i have got the shakes writing this!!
got the budget lady at my welfare centre tomorrow. might help out with some medical bills. today's out of pocket, 30 bucks, i will pay it next check. st.vinnies came mon night, they are arranging the purchase of the paint. the medical centre i go to is arranging some podiatry and nutrionist.
i am buggered, and a tad scared. was told by the eye man about the ciggies and he said i am going to cop it by the cardiologist. may need some tips here guys. anxiety is bad. talk soon, jamie.

Jamie,

I hope that he is wrong about all of this and that you are okay. Please let us know what happens.

I am glad that your eyes are 20/20. I wishe mine were. Hopefully you will get things sorted out soon. Try to relax and not stress over this. Wait until you get the tests.

Hugs, Karen
