I slept through a lot of Christmas I'm upset about it and opened my gifts with my family the day after... and had some drinks on Christmas eve, boy am I sad. My OCD is killing me today, anything that goes wrong I just feel like kneeling to the ground, drained of energy and spirit... anyone else have any trouble like this?

Dear Paulos,
 
You were doing well, what happened?  Can you share with us.  You were not drinking and doing well.  Let us help you help yourself.
 
I am posting this for you again as I am worried about you.

Do not drink alcohol while taking Lamictal . Alcohol may increase drowsiness or dizziness caused by Lamictal . Alcohol may also increase the risk of seizures. Reference: PDR

I am so sorry your OCD is in high gear.  Keep posting.

I am here for you as well as all the members of HW.

Kitt

Well I've learned from the 24 days I stopped drinking so I'm better disciplined with it as in not to do it again, but there was a site * I don't think I'm allowed to post up hyperlinks here* and anyway I went to their chat a lot, had some fine friends/etc and... then they banned me for no particular reason... very unhappy I was that day. I've taken many medications with alcohol in my past anyway, but I'mo n Lamactil 100mg... and my OCD consists of fits of fear that I can't live life right, I'll miss something important, lose my house, lose my life, and many many worse things.
