THE REASON

STILL IN THE BLAH ZONE!! I THINK I KNOW WHY. FOR THE LAST TWO WEEKS OR SO I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH MY DAUGHTER AND HER DEPRESSIVE CYCLE. ONE NIGHT I HAD TO TAKE HER TO EMERGENCY AS SHE WAS HAVING A MAJOR PANIC ATTACK. SHE HAD NEVER HAD THE BIG ONE BEFORE AND SHE WAS CONVINCED SHE WAS DYING. NOTHING I COULD SAY COULD DISSUADE HER SO OFF WE WENT. OF COURSE, THAT IS EXACTLU WHAT THE DOC TOLD HER. SO WHEN IT CAME FROM HIM SHE FELT BETTER. YEAH, WHAT DO BP MUM'S KNOW ABOUT ANXIETY ATTACKS ANYWAY...JOKE!! SHE IS ON WELLBUTRIN AND SOME ATIVAN BUT THE WELLBUTRIN IS CAUSING MORE PROBLEMS THAN IT IS CURING SO SHE NEEDS A DIFFERENT MED. I FIND IT HARD TO DEAL WITH HER AND IT REALLY BRINGS MY DEPRESSION TO A HEAD. HOPEFULLY, TODAY SHE WILL GET TO SEE HER DOC, WHO BY THE WAY I THINK IS A USELESS TOOL, AND GET A NEW MED. I SAY THAT ABOUT HER DOC AS ONCE UPON A TIME WHEN I FIRST WENT INTO THE DEPRESSION OF BP SHE WAS MY DOC AND THOUGHT THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME. YEAH, RIGHT!!ANYWAY, GOTTA GO. EVERYONE BE WELL DEBBIE

I know how hard it is to deal wiht our kids depression and problems when it is all we can do many times to deal with our own and hang on to some thin thread of sanity. But this to will pass, hope it\'s soon. Hugs and loves

When will docs figure out that you cannot give a bp person anti-depressents. It just sends you into mania or depresses you more. They tried 15 different ones on me till they figured out I was bp. It was a nightmare. I can definitely sympathize with you. I am sure my daughter is bp but she is resisting, nothing I can do but listen. It is very frustrating. I\'m sorry you have to go through this. It doesn\'t help your own condition. Hope things go better soon for you and for her. Naomi xo
