Yeah, I am really out there. I feel like I am running and running to do things and accomplishing nothing. My fibro is so so but I am constantly fatigued. I have so much going on I don't know what to do with myself. Thanks for thinking of me though!

Thanks for the note. The mood chart doesn't tell the whole story. My moods are worse than it shows because now I can start the day out profoundly depressed and end it manic. I can change moods in the middle of the day. It is weird, I can feel it happening, the change taking place even, becoming really animated & happy when I am actually very sad & angry. My moods don't always fit what is going on in my life at the time. Sometimes things going on make them worse. It's complex, isn't it?

hi. hope you are doing ok? seroquel added into the mix seems to be helping enormously and getting a good night's sleep with it helps big time. i am into day seven of no sh, the most i have gone so far so here's hoping because it has been difficult with huge anxiety at work for past week so maybe things on that side will be better too once i can relax more. rapid cycling seems to have eased as well and weight loss rather than weight gain for a change!

do you mean sh? no cutting more than ever. 40/day. think pdoc thinks meds will help but so far no luck. i too hope meds start helping you. it really ***** sometimes, this disease. i picked my son up yesterday as he lost his job, recession, so i feel sorry for him coming home in these circumstances. he's gone so thin i'll have to feed him up!

hi, still horrible most of the time although lamictal and ltryptophan give me a few hours relief in the mornings but then down i go again. (like torture). pdoc is thinking of replacement for abilify which gave me awful side effects. still sh'ing and am running out of room! going back between old cuts. cannot seem to stop.

how are you doing? any improvement on meds. went off tracker for a while. got tired of myself!

hi there, lovely to hear from you. am also up and down and bought stuff in town that i did not need. thank goodness i always go to bargain rail!! still feeling like ****. new meds stopped working so its back to the drawing board. had awful side effects from abilify so pdoc prescribek kamedrin to counteract before we discuss new lot of meds.

Thanks for thinking of  me! hope you are doing ok?? meds for me work for a few hours during the day, but then the downs are worse. hope pdoc gets the dosage up to therapeutic levels soon. had doc questioning it yesterday as his book says 200 is max dose and i am on 300 and still increasing every fifth day by 25mg. we'll see. also increased abilify so that might help.

had note written before i realised i wasn't logged in! yes lithium increases the appetite. hate to be boring but try fruit and such things instead of milkshakes and frosted flakes although i know it ismore like a craving than just an increase in appetite. i also cheated and took a diet pill! it at least minimised the gain! went off most meds except thyroxine, rivotril and xanax so that i could start new regime that i'm trying to hope will work. is lamitrogine lamictal? i reached 100 cuts yesterday and know if i go one more it will just go into a vicious circle so have dumped blades and am giving pdoc stanley knife today. know it's only symbolic but might help. have a good day! btw would love to see researcher on the meds and see how they like the weight gain!

thanks for reply. great that your christmas and new year went well. sounds nice. my kids are two boys 20 and 22 and my daughter is 15. yeah it was great to have them home, i hadn't seen shane 22 since july and gearoid since september which is too long. asked them to come home more often. we'll see, it's five hours of shane and nine hours for gearoid to get here so it is a bit of a hike! shane is unemployed at the moment and i'm hoping he'll go back to school or start training for something as employment here is pretty bad at the moment. gearoid is training to be a chef and is loving it. megan is having a great life, she's a good student and is artistic and talented (as are both boys) and has the lead in the school musical which will be on in march.

Thanks for note, no haven't been doing well. hibernation mode and withdrawal from phone and computer and most people kicked in. just about able to carry out necessary tasks. had lovely three days with the kids for christmas though, it was great to have my sons home and my daughter and i really enjoyed them. first time in five years we stayed home so it was much less stressfull (usually we go to my parents miles away and i cook for everyone way to early in the day dinner for 2.30pm so this year we were delighted to have dinner at 7.30pm which suits us much better!) hope you had a nice christmas and new year.

thank you for your kind note. the support means a lot particularly when i am so isolated here and the only support is from my pdoc who is available as much as possible. this time of year is always difficult. family expectations and financial strains are enough to drive anyone insane. most of the time i'm in a state of absolute terror and i dont know what i'm terrified of! rivotril or xanax help when it gets too bad. some days it is impossible to leave the house. enough about me. hope you're doing ok and have good plans for christmas.

thanks for note, weight decreased almost at the same rate of decrese of zyprexa! would love to ask medical people if they would like me to produce witnesses to my diet & exercise regime! have made no changes yet still am on the way back to normal and some of my clothes are fitting me again. are you enjoying your daughter? i'm due to start thyroid meds next week i think. they're supposed to be good for depression so  here's hoping again. school went ok but was very glad to get back home again where i don't hve to see anyone. my daughter's gone away for the weekend. enjoy your father's party.

hi. still here. was gaining lots of weight on zyprexa and finally getting off it. down to 5mg/ day n ow and have already lost a few pounds with no diet change. if i were to eat less it would be insane as i barely eat enough to survive as it is yet i still gained weight on zyprexa. pdoc doesn't believe me. said 'calories in cause weight to go on!' yet am losing it steadily now. i am finding the struggle with life exhausting and am tempted to just stay in my house all the time. have to go work in a school tomorrow and friday and am worrying about that all week. promised i;d do it though so don't want to back out of it. hope you're doing well yourself.
