Thanks so much for your reply. I haven't been on in a few days...
I'm not quite sure how Lithium is for the depressive symptoms either. Hopefully the Lamictal helps with it all and I won't even have to worry about trying something else. Thanks for letting me know how it was for you though. That's what I needed. I am really concerned about the weight gain for sure. I'm not sure if it's water retention...I will ask my phsyician when I see her this week, she's so smart. All I know is along with the pounds we gain from some of these meds, I also felt and looked extremely bloated all the time. But again, I hope with the Lamictal I don't have that problem. I am going to pay extra attention to my diet and try to exercise.
I am so glad that you have the Clonazepam. It should really help you with the anxiety; when my panic attacks come on and I take one, it really helps me.
School..I am still attending every day. I don't want to take a break. I am just praying that these meds don't make me zombie like...I need to be awake for school, I need to have energy. The last time I was on Lamictal I don't remember it making me so tired I couldn't function...but if it does do that, I won't be able to stay on it.
Anyway, I hope you are doing well. How are the appointments going...All of em? I am wondering how the funding process for school is going for you as well...? Also, did you finish that support group...what happened with that? I'm curious...sorry to ask so many questions...
I hope you and FBF are getting through everything. I really hope you two can make this work. You've come so far. I'm sending you hugs Dutchie.
