I haven't forgotten you all!

Hey all,

I haven't forgotten you all. I've been crazy busy with doctor appointment; trying to figure out my edema (which we now think is related to my lithium-oh yay). I've been having a really hard time on the Wellbutrin. I'm not able to sleep more than 4 hours at a time-MAX! And when I do sleep, I have horrible, vivid dreams-as if that wasn't bad enough, I scream and yell in my sleep, and thrash and kick. Poor Chris has not had a good night's sleep in a week, never mind the bruises. Has anyone else experienced this? I've decided I'm going to go one more week, and then call my doc if nothing has changed. So far I'm definitely not impressed with this drug. I feel like it's winding up my mind, but doesn't help with the OCD or anxiety AT ALL (which my doc did warn me about). I just have a feeling that this isn't going to be the drug that will work for me.

Just wanted to get a quick post out there. I'm trying Aqua Fit Bootcamp tonight (since I'm not able to work out because of the edema-which is driving me INSANE)....and I'm excited about it. We'll see how it goes!

Hope everyone is well!

  1. We'll I guess the meds will always be a sticky spot between us, I suppose after all I have been through over the years has left me more than a bit jaded, I still say it's guess work in a lab coat. such is life. Now I got a chance to go through aqua-fit when I wrenched my back a few years ago and it was a blast, if your classes are anything like mine you're in for one good time. As for who I am, if I tell you I married your cousin in the valley, would that do it for you, I'm not trying to be funny or coy, I'm just a little reluctant to send out names over the web in a public forum. so if you know who I am now, lets keep it off the computer, thanks.


Please let me know what you think!
