studied, got school in the morning and my shrink appt as well.

freezing weather is not helping, nor are my disturbed dreams!!!

up with tweezers!!!! will type up a letter for my shrink later.

Jamie, my nephrologist says over and over, "keep well-hydrated".
Drink water, water, water. It removes the toxins and calms the
systems. It helps control high glucose levels (though not completely, so you need to keep on your meds), but it helps you get sound sleep,
etc. It just does wonderful things for you.

If you can afford purified water, it's much better than drinking water
from the tap--much, much better.

Please don't use artificial sweeteners; they are so acidic and are actually detrimental to your systems. Don't use alcohol; it makes
depression worse; don't drink anything (or eat anything with caffeine in it--they make the illness worse.) Chocolate is included in the list.

The strongest benefits you're going to get (outside those of your meds)
are reducing the acidity of tissues and drinking either purified or distilled water to reduce symptoms. (Distilled water removes unused minterals from the body.)

I can't emphasize how much drinking purified water is for relieving the symptoms of depression. Your diet also has something to do with helping to alleviate depression; enjoy lots of green salads and vegetables and less beef, use more fish and lamb (more easily digested). I know you've heard this a thousand times, but it bears repeating anytime the symptoms of depression seem to deepen.

These are ways to help lift your systems' burdens.

Thinking about you.

Hey Jamie,

I hope that you are feeling better today. I know that things are difficult at this time. I am going to shoot you an email.

I drink a lot of lemon water. It does help. The lemon cleanses the liver. And has vitamin C in it. Don't know if you are into water or not. I did this years ago (20) when I was in my 30's. I was the healthiest ever. Now I have a few vices. But I think a lot of people do. But with the water, you can't go wrong.

Hugs, Karen

seen the shrink today. tegretol levels were way too low. 7, should be a minium of 25, hence we have bumped up the tegretol to 200mg twice a day.
been rapid cycling like crazy, the shrink has been made aware of how i am feeling, i wrote him a very straight up letter. need to e-mail my lecturer as i missed class again!!!!!!!!! been very cold and wet here. oh well. take care everyone, a lot going on in my head but i will get there. thx for your support, cheers, jamie.

Sorry you are down.  I have been feeling like that a little bit myself lately.  The water idea is always good, if you get tired of plain water, try some mineral water, good for you as well.
 
Hope today you feel better!  I would like to trade weather with you, it is 97 degrees here and the humidity is like 300%!  It can be draining, I go outside in the early morning before it gets too bad.
 
Cheer up!  and I hope your med adjustment helps.

It is raining here today finally. We need it, it is very dry. We had a forest fire the other day. No homes were lost though. Thank God.

Jamie, I hope that you feel better soon. I know that it is hard for you right now. Know all of us care about you. I hope that you are getting some good sleep.

Hugs, Karen

I like to be alone a lot, but I do miss seeing people now and then. If I don't see anybody for a long time, I have tro call someody and talk to them. I don't go out often other than running errands and stuff like that. Today I am going to a grad party. Should be fun and nice. I hope. Hoping the rain quits in time for the party. lol... That would be nice.

Hugs, Karen
