Just a quick note to say hi!
I noticed you are close to my age.  I think the energy thing is something I will just have to deal with and may be more a function of getting a little older.  I think loosing that energy was one reason to start and keep taking the trams.  It becomes a lifestyle.  Then I became addicted to the energy and the antidepressant properties.  I went to the doctor and got an RX for Welbutrin and it seems to be helping already.  I believe this will be my day zero for the trams.
My husband has not agreed to go to counseling, but has agreed to do a Bible Study with me on marriage.  We will see how it goes.  Hope you are doing well.  you are an inspiration and encouragement to all of us on this site.

Thank you for everything!  I have a strong faith that will get me thru this and 2 great kids plus 2 awesome grandkids.  Its hard when you have lived basically your whole life with someone and they just totally refuse to see the truth.  I truly believe it is the trams that have continued this marriage so long- numb yourself to things and maybe they will go away.  It is so silly to believe that.  Eventually things catch up with you.  I have a busy life- run a good business and have lots of people to support me.  I believe I WILL get off this stuff and never go back.  I dont seem to be having the severe WD  symptoms as I did in May.  Probably due to I was only taking about 50mg per day this time.  I started on Welbutrin and am hoping it will help me with the depression.    Thanks SO much.

Thank you for checking on me.  Actually I fell back into the Trams again, but once again I am getting off them.  This time going to the MD to get some help.  As you may remember, my husband also is on them and he continues, so they were here and I just one day took one again...BAD IDEA!!  Now I am going to get off them for good.  Trouble now is my husband are splitting up after 30 years marriage.  I feel I will be OK in time, but for now it is very hard.  I believe the trams are a big part of this whole split up- not dealing with issues- just taking a pill.  Not a healthy way to cope with stuff life throws at you.  I cant convince him of the effects, but I am certain of it.  Please pray for me if you can.   Beth

I got waaaay off balance....on 2 meds for the Bipolar now and just starting to stabilize....it has been such a struggle....many visits to the psychiatrist  (expensive) .....depression and anxiety off the charts.......... so i am grateful for the experience as it got me back on meds and i am doing better overall..(even from before the TRAM) soo. at least i have a better addressing of my problem....as well as sober and dealing with co dependency...you are my hero...i have not shared all these details on the thread...I am sure you can easily see why.....love you honey....how are you doing?

This is the next step in my recovery and I am ready! Congrats on 25 days without alcohal and 83 without tram! I am so happy for you! :)
