Hey Aunt Kay,
 
Just happened to see your message and could tell how bad you are feeling.  I have definitely been there so I just wanted to encourage you to hang in there.  It will get better!!!  I am hanging out in CP chat in case anyone needs to talk - feel free to stop by if you happen to be on at same time as me.
 
Hugs!!

Pay It Forward : )

Hey Karen sad

Sorry you aren't feeling better yet. The meds do take a while to kick in. If I remember right, you started Welbutren about 2 days ago.

Hey sis, make a post in the Lupus forum too, so the girls who know you can give you some support.

Hugs, Prayers and Blessings for you sis!!

((((Karen)))) The Wellbutrin took about 2-3 weeks for me to notice a difference. Tie a knot in the end of the rope and hang in there!

Thoughts and prayers are with you,

Karen,

Like I said before, I will crawl in the hole and carry you out if necessary. I know it is tough to deal with the many complications our disease can throw at us. I am facing some difficult decisions ahead with my own treatment and feel very overwhelmed. But I have found that with each new challenge I face, deep down inside and by the grace of God I am able to get through it. These challenges become great learning opportunities. I learn about myself, what makes me happy, my dependence on a higher power, and how I can become stronger spiritually because of life's trials. I loose the battles with life's many tribulations when I try and control the outcome rather than stepping back and allowing God to guide me to the destination He has for me. Good luck and know I am always here and ready to lend you a shoulder when you feel like you can't take another step. I know it isn't an easy path you walk, I certainally can't relate to all you are going through (each of us have different trials even tho the catalyst is the same), but know that together, with your HW family, we can face anything.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Hey Karen,
How are you feeling by now??? I know its just a couple days since your post . . . but just wondered how you are doing!!

Thanks Randy,
That is an excellant way to look at things. (Randy said: "I loose the battles with life's many tribulations when I try and control the outcome rather than stepping back and allowing God to guide me to the destination He has for me."

Blessings!

I took 150mg Wellbutrin for one month and now started 300mg.  I feel a lot like Karen...that thread even with the knot is hard to hold onto.

Hugs and Blessings for you too sis!

I hope both of you are communicating with your doctors about this. You sounds pretty down.

Blessings!

nono  Hang in there, 'Kay !

I suppose this is a real case of "no noose is good news"... eyes

Seriously though Aunt Kay (before I get flamed for my puns sad ) just think of all the times that you have been such a blessing to others on this forum and others. As soon as I saw the title of this thread and knew it was you, I was immediately concerned for your welfare...not least because of the wonderful example you have set us all. Remember, what goes around comes around, good as well as bad; and it may be your turn soon to experience the boon that is a clear, fully functioning mind ! yeah

I remember how bad things were before I found the right medication...you wouldn't believe the difference, it often seems like it was all just a terrible dream.

Karen

You will be well again. Take it from me and my years of experience. I tried several meds until I found what helps me. I have been fine for about 6 months now.

Snohare. Keep those "puns a comin" We need your sense of humour.
