I am just looking for any experience or words of wisdom for kind of a 2 part question. I am dealing with a rough time in my life right now & about a month ago was put on Wellbutrin sr 75mg 2x a day. My pcp wanted a med that could help me get through this time and I wanted something that could help me focus and not make me as tired during the day, as I had...
Things started off okay but all the "calmness" he was attempting to keep from getting angry has started to wear off, I think just due to the stuff life with a preschooler throws at you. If that makes sense? Family has irritated him. (his family) and just some other everyday normal things so now he's falling back into staying less calm about the...
A little update: he's coming home tomorrow. I have to go get him in the morning as he's been released. The rehab counselor was supposed to call me the day before his "evaluation" this week and never did. He was supposedly evaluated today, yet he knew (via the counselor) that he was pretty much set to go home friday, before the eval. I have...
Thanks again. Its nice to hear words of support when I am so frustrated. I want with all my heart to believe that what he's saying is the truth.... but considering I've now discovered that this has been going on since like day 1 when we met, its obviously huge to handle. I was able to take medical leave starting just a couple days ago from work ...

Hi all... I am dealing with a rough situation and have been prescribed wellbutrin (immediate release) to kinda "get me through it". My dr chose this med because I have been feeling exhausted and having trouble focusing too. I realize all side effects are normal with starting a new med but I was looking for any personal experience. I have researc...
You know, I agree, but I can't MAKE them keep him. If they choose to let him go this week, then he will have only had like 2&1/2 weeks there and 1 week in detox. I DONT think its enough. i really don't. I don't want this decision to be solely on me and its not, as far as I'm aware. I will tell the counselor what I think.... no matter w...
Thanks again. I spoke with him last night and earlier today and I feel as if he is "checked out" maybe mentally from the rehab program. He's told me repeatedly that everyone there when he arrived and even some after are gone. (my thoughts: "and they may be right back in there"). He said yesterday how he wanted to get back to PT th...
Thank you so much. You have no idea how much your post means to me. It really makes me feel much better. The addiction therapist I'm seeing is defnitely focusing on me. He's just not hearing it (yet). The counselor at the rehab didn't really say much about me other than "he has a good family behind him". I feel like they are g...
Thanks for the replies and input. Today seemed to go well. I did take our child... and it was fine. We got there early so he got to play and visit for about 20 mins before my husband and I met with the counselor while my mom in law watched the outside. I didn't get into all of "my feelings about stuff" which is the only way I can think ...
Thanks for your point of view. I figured I was expecting too much too soon, but really just wanted to see because I haven't dealt with this before. I think what my counselor meant was that yes, while his recovery is going to be hard and he's going through alot right now he is in a place right now with counselors, social workers, group meetings, othe...
