|A little about me:||i'm on aol my screen name is email@example.com if anyone wants to talk to me that way.
i am on pristiq 100mg
about me: thimgs i guess started going downhill for me in 2000. i lost my father to a heart attack. got downsizied from a job. worked in 2003 but that didn't last too long either. went back to school for medical assisting. yeah for me another thing to add to my resume. still feeling blue and not sure what the reason was from. went to the docotrs and was put on med sorry too many to name from. than got help from my new doctor pcp that was around 2009 went to see my new doctor. things started to get better.tried many new drugs so sorry i can't remember all that i've been on. but know i see my therapist at least 2xs a month and my drug and touch base with my md behind my drug doses at least every 3 months to get my drugs. which i get the freebies since i don't have insurance. problems with them and a spenddown which i've hit but waiting to hear from dds. i found this site on google as hopefully it will help me out and makes some new friends that have the same issues that i do.
i'm the only one in my family that has my illness of bipolar manic depression. mom thinks its her fault. its something that i'm born with and i'm trying to deal with it. as long as i stay on my meds and see my therapist and doctor. hopefully i'll be okay. but it seems like i'm in a long dark cave and cannot see the light at the end of tunnel.
i have my good days and my bad days and somedays that are just days. how does one decribe it. days that are just yuck and your in a funk and can't get out of it days.
hopefully here i'll learn more about my illness and along the way have some real great friends and support from them along the way.
trying to stay focused and postive each and every day.

|Happiest Father's Day to all our dads. Here are some quotes for you. :)
"I want my son to wear a helmet 24 hours a day."
"When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years."
"It is admirable for a father to take his son fishing, but there is a special place in heaven for the father who takes his daughter shopping."
(((BIG BEAR HUGS)))
|This a "Group Hug"...Doesn't mean its coming to you with any less meaning. We all share that common daily sadness and stress with ourselves or our family members. I wish I had some medical background to help some of you more. I do try to read your post and I care and worry for many of you. Stay Strong....I care :) I hope today is a better day! :) Kim
|Thinking of everyone and wishing you well. Hugs Dee
