Hi, I would really appreciate some different opinions on whats going on with me lately. I'm becoming fixated on one issue and would like some clarification on other areas to focus on. Last week I was in a car accident. My friend died and the other driver is still really badly hurt. I was pretty lucky (apparently, I certainly dont feel lucky). I have pinched nerves in my back, and I have been getting quite bad headaches. One of my lungs collapsed and I have a hole in my side. I have got quite a few different pain killers, and a nurse also got me 3 months Aropax, which I've never been on before. Is it any different from Fluoxetine? I am finding my memory is really bad and my moods are so unpredictable. I cant sleep and the more I cant sleep the more I panic about not sleeping. I'm not sure if its the drugs or just me thats making everything so surreal. I have some Tramadol ( I think thats what it is) and some codeine and another one thats out in the car. Is this just me getting used to the Aropax or is it the other drugs? My Dr doesnt know about the Aropax and I really dont want to go into all that with him. Also, its been 8 days since the accident, 4 since the funeral and I have been home for 3 days now. I am finding I need to take the Tramadol a little more often every day, not less, why is that? My memory is so bad lately sometimes I'm not sure when its time to take them all. My left lung is really sore tonight. I think thats from holding my breath but I dont realise I'm doing it until it becomes really painful. I just dont know if I just need to ride it all out and wait for everything to level out, or if I should stop taking something or everything. Most of them run out on Friday anyway. I do like the way some of the meds help shut out the images in my head. I was only just holding the past out before the accident, now it fights for space in my head with the accident and C. I dont know why this happened. What would you do?

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...
Has anyone tried these supplements? Do they give MGers more quality of life by improving memory and overall well being?Thanks!Barbel
