Okay..will try to make this short? Dr has me on seroquel 100 XR and xanax XR 1 mg...3 times/ day. I am totally exhausted and depressed..I feel the depression in my neck/shoulders. I'll be 50 next month...yes have done the med roulette for years. What's good now is MY BODY WORKS SEXUALLY AND I'VE LOST 30 LBS. AFTER weaning off the drug from hell..effexor..summer 07..I see my Dr Monday for the next plan!!!!!!! I constantly read in my book 'Depression Free Naturally'..anyone read it? I have all the amino acids it talks about, in fact I may take trytophan tonite instead of my seroquel to see how I feel..sure couldn't be any worse. YES!!!!!!!! YA'll I take tons of Vit..I have compounded, 3 grams fish daily. I don't know what to suggest to my Dr...I hated lithium, but maybe I need it again..he doesnb't want me on it due to me already being on thyroid and he mentions it casuing kidney problems. I was going to bring up..lithium/wellbuterin? I've never taken wellbuterin. All I'm asking God and my Dr for is maybne 10 more yrs of handling this illness..that's all I think me or my body can handle. FYI...I would never suicide...have a precious family (son). Depakote anyone? or will all my hair fall out and I gain more than lithium? IT was prescibed to me 5? yrs ago..I never took it after reading side effects. I know there is nothing without side-effects, but just want to want to be able to get out of bed and to look forward to a day. I DO get up shower/ makeup/ but its all I can do to do it. I see my counselor weekly and psych about every 6 weeks..any answers God? people? by the way..antidepress...raise my blood press and make my heart beat fast, and bite people's heads off..don't know if thats mania or not, I DO have the bloodpress. med filled if I have to get back on....Dr Rx remeron about 2 months ago...I took 1 pill and made a post in here and everyone said it was MAJOR weight gainer!!! please talk to me people!!

My son came over and he brought me a loaf of bread. I asked him to, because I ran out. Anyway, he did not buy me the usual one. He bought me Stonemill Slow Crafted Chia and supergrain bread. Only 23 gr. carbs for 2 slices but has 7 gr. fiber. Bought it at Walmart. I do not know if Walmart USA has it because it is made in Canada. 130 calories for 2 slices. A bit more expensive but worth...
