I'm so glad you were able to update us since you saw your Doctor You had been in my thoughts. I tried to see if you had an email address so I could send you an email (as its a little more private), but noticed you didn't have one listed. I am so happy for you that your twins are there for you. I was wondering how old they are (if you don't mind me asking)? Do you have a supportive family other than your twins? When you mentioned about your Doctor saying about the negatives & the positives, including participating in getting well.
I saw my Pdoc this morning as well. I started Lamictal 25mg 2 weeks ago, so today I went up to 2x a day = 50mg total. So she was saying basically the same as your Doctor. And has been saying how I need to not dwell on certain things (including my past), much easier said than done. I wish it was as easy as they make it sound...I started seeing a Psychiatrist for the first time in my life last September & have continued seeing her weekly/biweekly, I really like her & she has helped me so much. I do try to do the things she says but its just plain difficult for me to do. My 7-kids really support me, but it is so hard for them & my husband to not be able to fix me, and I know they hate seeing me in such a struggle everyday. My kids ages are: 12, 14, 16, 19, 20, 22, 25...Our 3-yr old grandson is like one of our kids & is very much a daily part of our lives.
I wish only the best for you. Smiles & hugz...
