so guys you have come to see how limited i have become as a member,
i can't focus on posts and have great difficulty in reading larger content,
hence tacking on. let's face face it, i am useless here and totally inept.
bloody bi-polar!! i am so sorry, i was great in the past, not anymore.
the loving compassionate and caring me is still here, but i feel that dosen't
cut the mustard anymore. because of these focus issues i feel that recently
in my life it has caused me to miss many an opportunity. school flop,
consumer consultant role i was promised, nothing and others.
so what do i do? this is making upset and i am crying. sorry.
new meds? i don't know. see the shrink tomorrow.
your feedback is appreciated.

love 2 all, jamie

Jamie, don't ever feel inept. I know I haven't been here for long but your words of encouragement, no matter how brief, are appreciated. I think new meds might help. Remember to ask about Remeron (Mirtazapine) for sleep. I have focus issues as well. I was diagnosed with ADD because my doctor said (after a 4 hour evaluation of cognitive, behavioral and blah blah tests) that I have zero concentration.

I could've told him that :) I'm so sorry you're feeling this way. Please ask about a change in meds, even if an increase or whatnot here and there.

I wish you the best, Jamie. I hope all goes well at your appointment.

BIG SOUTHERN BELLE HUGS!

Jamie,

Please don't compare yourself to others, to us, you are just our Jamiee, we don't notice any difference. I too struggle with long posts, especially if people don't paragrath things, or if I have a shocking headache.

There are many people here that know your struggles, and these people marvel at your tensasity, we don't place expectations on each other, so you shouldn't either. We understand that people go through good and bad times, and that's ok, you will always be our Jamiee.

Jamie,

These guys are right. We love you just the way that you are. Don't leave us. We look forward to your posts every morning. At least I do. Keep the faith Jamie. It will be okay... I promise....

Jamie it's ok. Your contribution big or small provides is very important and much appreciated. Those little smiley faces have made me smile at times that I didn't think I had a smile left in me.

Don't worry about the focus thing. Read what you can. That's what I do. Its not that we don't care, its just that we mentally can't handle it at the moment.

Hugs always in your corner.

Hi Jamie. I don't know what your take on a higher power is, but I would say, just put this out there: "God, if You are real, show me. And show me what Your Name is/who you are..." and then wait and see what happens.

Don't give up on finding answers, and do something nice for yourself today. :0)

seen my psychiatrist, i am a tad peeved. no sleepers or anything to calm me.
he listened to me read my 6 page letter. he was attentive. my hands were shaking
as was was my voice. we have the right path request form for the lithium and tegretol
levels. he is seeing me next fri. he said i could call his office if i need to see him
sooner, that was nice. wants me to bump up seroquel on bad nights, sort of defeats
the purpose of going of of it!!!!! may put me on lamotrogine. see how the lithium
tegretol levels are first. long day. love 2 all. jamie.

It is confusing to say the least about the seroquel. I hope that the meds help you. What is lamotrogine? I have never heard of it.

I hope that you are having a better day today.

Keep us posted Jamie...

apparently it is in the anti-convulsant family that has both
anti-depression and mood stabilization qualities. so says my shrink.
he is a professor and bi-polar expert, so i beleive him explicitly.

Lamotrigine is generic Lamictal (mood stabilizer) My hub took it with effexor and it was very effective, not so many s/e either...couldnot handle all the lithium crap

Good luck my friend...sounds like a md cjange is in order..you have suffered a long time

Hey Jamiee

I am taking the lamotrogine along with lithium, wellbutrin and ativan. For the past few days I have been feeling better. I don't know which one is causing these better days but I am happy for it. Reason I don't is because every one of the medications was increased when I started the lamotrogine.

Hope it works for you.

Hello jamie, I can across your post and found it interesting. I too found it nearly impossible to concentrate, I would read a page in a book but could not remember any content. I know i am different as i have major depression but with my medications i take mirtazapine 60mg(2 tablets) at night and effexor 150mg in the day. The efexor has helped me alot with concentration and in the last few weeks I have read about 4 books. I now know I should have been on these medications a long time ago as i have struggled with memory and concentration most of my life. I hope you get a result from your medications, I know I really need mine.
