hi gang, sorry been awhile.
 
okay, got the melatonin, 2mg. 1 month supply. doc wants me to take it with the seroquel. sugars are stuffed, cholesterol and lipids too. was to see the doc today, cancelled muscles seized. starting fish oil tabs soon. a lot of vomiting, anxiety and diaroeah. i am extremely depressed and anxious, been vomiting before every appt, and i have had loads, i lost control of my bladder with the diabetes educator 2 weeks ago. she understood and knows that i am stressing. not seing the lady tonight, i need her to make some moves, i can't do anymore at this time.
 
seen mum last tues, she is good, brother much better, and is receiving psychosocial support. i am tired and run down. steve has been with me over 2 weeks, my compassionate side kicked in. he is much better, is helping and giving me space. we are actually good mates, he just sought of forgot about me before he became unwell. he is honest, and listens.
 
okay so i am practicing what i am preaching.....i am going back into therapy, done some research on a charity that sees people on a sliding fee scale. first appt is next mon. not nervous-something i actually need. he is a social worker, do not like shrinks, actually i am over them, and with my run i should be!!! never liked psychologists much......err behaviourists!!! not a fan of cbt either. he works on grief and relationships....with a speciality in mens development-perfect. so the insulin goes up 2 more increments, need to get the stress and anxiety down and need some healing sleep.
 
did the epilepsy training whilst in melbourne. it was worth it. fantastic workshop, educator, speakers and plenty of take home info. i took a management plan for the lady-providing this relationship starts up properly and what to do on sick days, etc, etc. i shared my experiences with 2 people dying from seizures and one because of the chronic nature actually took his life. i also learnt that people who have suffered a stroke are a massive precussor for becoming epileptic.
 
hoping the melatonin works. i really need some sleep. thx 4 reading this and your care and support. i have been doing a lot of caring work lately. brain is frazzled. luv 2 you all. sorry that i have only been periodically around. other stuff, maybe in the next smaller post!!!

Hi Jamie,

Wow you have been through a lot lately. I like melatonin. I hope that it works for you. I usually feel pretty good when I get up. But I take ambien too. That gives me a restful sleep. I hope that you find what works for you.

Not feeling the hottest today. Kind of a rough morning as I took flexeril last night instead of ambien and I didn't get proper sleep. So bare with me here.

Keep posting Jamie, we all care about you. Good for you to take classes about seizures. You will be a rock for your lady.

Talk to you soon.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Jamie,
 
I take melatonin on occasion and it works for me.  I am just so use to the ambien.  Probably addicted if that is possible.  I tried taking a flexeril in place of it the other night and woke up feeling terrible. 
 
I am so happy that the melatonin is working for you and you got a refreshed sleep.
 
Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
 
Hugs, Karen

Hi Jamie, Glad to hear you are doing better. You have had quite a bit happening recently. It's good that the melatonin is working for you and you got some good rest. I am doing better. Getting used to being alone. So I  would have to say that I am a survivor. You are doing such a good job with helping your family and now you have to take care of you. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Take care.
 
Many hugs,
 
Aurora
