Just got back from the pdoc and this is what he said. I want to take you off of all of your meds and start you on new ones. I stood up for myself and said NoWAY! It's hard enough to start one med let alone 3 or 4. I told him the Invega seems to be working and so does the mood stabalizer. It's the anti=depressant I was worried about. So he upped my anti-depressent Cymbalta from 30mg to 60mg. I asked him if this will help stop all of the suicidal feelings I have been having and constantly think about. His answer, "It should because you don't have enough anti-depressant in your system." I'm going to give it a few days and see what happens. But what am I supposed to do in the mean time when I start to feel suicidal again. It's seems like I wake up ok in the morning but then something happens or nothing happens and by the evening I am depressed and suicidal or ready to cut myself. God I am so frustrated. I don't feel like he listened to me at all. He also increased my xanax from .5mg 2xdaily to 1.0 mg 3xdaily. How long should I wait for this antidepressant to kick in? How am I supposed to deal with feeling suicidal every evening? I wish I had some answers. Not sure if I have much faith in my doc right now either. He finally listened to me and seemed to do what I asked for reluctantly. But I guess we'll see. Time will tell right?

I have asked 2 churches to explain to me their teachings on the Holy Spirit. I ask this because I know what I have read and my beliefs on the Holy Spirit. Yes I believe there are gifts that individuals receive and not everyone receives the same gift. The problem is no one will answer my question. They simply give me scripture and tell me to read and learn about it. I have expressed that I...
