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!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
