Lately I've been thinking a lot about what is me, essentially, and what is BP. It's not easy to untangle. That outsider feeling I've had since I was a child, even when I'm social, is that essentially me -- or the BP? Is my entire way of looking at and being in the world part and parcel of this illness? Does BP define our experience? These are questions I'm wrestling with -- I think I've wrestled with them even more since being on DS. What do you all think? How do you sort this question out for yourselves?

Have any of you tried or are on Protonix (pantoprazole )? It's used for GERD (acid reflux). I've just gone on it and my mood has completely dived - depressed and anxious.It could be the weather - we've gone from summer to autumn here in the UK - temps dropped 20F or more.Just trying to work out what's caused the current blip.
I've experienced this several times in the recent past and I can remember experiencing it for as long as I can remember, off and on. It seems to have gotten more frequent and/or more disturbing. But does anyone else experience yelling or screaming when they're in the shower? Its accompanied by this urgent feeling, like fear, but also a numbness, like I know it isnt real so theres no need to react...
