I seemed to have a major problem. My girl friend has moments of good mornings and most afternoon, after the hours of about 4pm she has these major fits of rage and paranoid episodes? Been going on now noticeably for about a year. Her Dr. Is finally starting to get the point. Started her on seriquil @ night to help her sleep but doesn't seemed to help her manic spending habits into debt! Blames everyone but herself. She goes back in to see about mabey putting her on a daytime med? Shes getting worse. Fits seem to becoming dangerous..I Plan on moving on dont need the extra added anxiety! Seems to to be a family genitic disorder. Her Mother had similar symptoms and brother has schitzophrenia. Anyhow, we'll help as far as moral support. Honestly I need someone more soothing, calm in nature and more mind like to hold a conversation with. She's out there. Trust God will lead us to each other. Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!

I am sorry to hear about your gf but it feels to me like she has major problems and you are not going to be able to fix her. You must do what is best for your own mental health.

Kindly,
Kitt

I know Kitt. Sad still. I think once I distance myself from her I wont be so close to her problem that mabey she'll listen more as a friend instead of someone to let out her rage! Then I can start building my finances again. Its important that I have solid foundation to have something to build on. Thanks for the moral support!. Have great day!

By the way I never was informed by my Dr. Except that there was nothing mentally wrong with me other than my mind needs to slow down to facilitate my ideas to others. This download process has been going on since I was seven. Ideas just keep coming in faster than I'm able to get them to appropriate indivdiuals. Anyhow how would they classify my dissorder based on my symptoms? By the way I get most of these ideas generally in dream form most lasting 4-6 hours at time usually between the hour of 12am-6am some actual events, but most in riddle form. I remember all of them in great detail. I know when they finish because I see the stars in the universe then it closes like the shutter on a camera. Weird huh?

philo,

Did you go under your user profile and the trick is to remember to save your updates or it reverts back to what was posted before ? Try it again.

Yes you do need to take care of you and being there as a friend is the best you can do. Remember you have to deal with how this affects your own own health.

The stress that you are under may lead physical and mental exhaustion.

Kindly,

Kitt

Hello Kit, last we had talked was in short regarding my soon to b ex gf. Dr. Raised depacote 500mg to three 3x daily and. Changed my Ativan to Diazepam 5 mg 2x daily(Generic 4 Vallium) Seems to have mellowed me out a bit (D) seems to last longer. Having some medical background; however mostly business. I have to be careful of the possible stacking issues that comes with these types of meds. A friend mentioned mabey joining a think tank of sorts to bounce some of my ideas around and possible networking to release the tension.Signed confidential paper work would of course be a must before discussing any of my ideas. Wouldn't want anyone getting any bright ideas that could very well ruin a perfectly well thought out plan. Specially since its a Non Profit Developed for Children. God will take of care of my med. issues and Faith will take care of my project and networking ideas! Sorry it took so.long to respond. On top of this whole mess I'm still looking for work. Go figure. Now I kind'a know How Matt Damon felt like in the movie " Good Will Hunting" Well have a great day and God Bless!

philo,

Good Morning to you. I think your Doctor is on the right track and increasing your Depakote hopefully your mood will stabilize for you. Diazepam has a long half life compared to Ativan. The half life for diazepam is 20 - 100 hours compared to Ativan's half life of 10 - 20 hours. I was switched from Ativan to Diazepam several years ago and find it works well.

I am glad to read you are strong in your faith and I do hope you are able to find employment doing something rewarding. I wonder if you would consider taking a part time position to begin with until you are feeling more secure about yourself at this moment in time.

Sending you good vibes and hope your week goes well for you.

Blessings,

Kitt
