 hi all, starting a new med that is derived from effexor. in oz it is known as pristiq, will start 100mg on monday, fortunately only have to wean a few days. another medical problem of concern is being addressed, mon i will have an x-ray and ultra-sound, hopefully the water workx probs will be known. i know this effects women moreso than men, a lot of family and friends suffer the same embarrassing prob. it just has been driving me up the wall.
in regards to my lady, i have decided to leave it till monday. better with a clear head. thanx for all your suggestions community. life is to be lived, and i said to jeannie-i am, no i will live life. i am me, cant change this, but i sure can change my thoughts and attitudes. there will always be people worse of than me, so to better aid people i need to look after me. one foot in front of the other. small goals first then...............i hope there is plenty of them!!
luv 2 you all. yeah yeah yeah

getting by

Hello to you and I am glad you are going to try a new med.  I hope that this is the one that will work for you.   It is sold in USA under that same name.

Do try to stay in the moment and just take it one small step at a time.

Take care
