*breathe, breathe*  

The Prozac has apparently kicked in. But the Strattera has worn off. So I am more upbeat than I was a week ago, but I CANNOT FOCUS ON ANYTHING. *primal scream*

Yeah, so I called the doctor to get the Adderal renewed. But it's a controlled substance, so I have to go physically pick up the prescription. So I won't have it today, for work. The work I'm really not doing.

I have indescribable feelings of frustration. Going for more caffeinated iced tea now.

*snuggles* I hate drugs. I mean, I love them because yay, I can live my life with them and not so much without -- but dammit I hate drugs, because finding that good combo is annoying as hell.

Yes yes yes. *jitters like a squirrel* *leaps at your face!*

(Sorry. Just...squirrels. I'm not really clinging to your face. I'm on your shoulder.)

Hope the meds balance gets worked out soon. I'm sure the trail-and-error portion of medicating is horribly frustrating.

I hate trying to figure out which drugs are best, and switching this for that and adding that other thing on top of everything else. I'm going through it right now myself, and it's driving me crazy. Er. Crazier.

Gah. I have so much sympathy. *hugs*

Oh, gah! Your poor brain!

I'm feeling you.


*feels you up*

My virtual arms are now hugging you, also slightly groping, but hey, prove it to the judge!

Poor thing, I again virtually massage your brain, but only virtually because I have learnt from past mistakes.

Yeah, for upbeat!

Oddly, this is the second entry that I have read, and both of you have reported inability to concentrate. If you go read Naamah_darling's epic day of forgetfulness, you will at least be entertained.

Oh, man. Sorry to hear this. I had to take the day off work because I'm finally on Effexor and have discovered that my beloved caffeine habit is no longer a viable option now that the dysthymia is under control. However. Turns out one can bone herself up real good by coming off caffeine too quickly, what with the vertigo, and the falling, and the cracking of the head against the door.

I'm deeply sympathize with trying to get the meds right and surviving the stretch between then and now.

Re: focus

That and the fact that Ronon and Teyla had matching beards was gonna fuck with Rodney's sleep patterns for weeks.

That's...SO DISTURBING. In the good, crunchy, kormanticky way. *g*

Just looking at Ronon made him feel... itchy. That was the term he was going with.

Oh yeah, Rodney. *itchy* Sure. *glee*

You are good to me! *kitten-pounce*

I know how tough it is to juggle the right dosages with the right meds. ::hugs::

I join you in your hating of the "one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small" joy ride; at the moment, it's apparent to me that my doc's insistance on giving me that one last prescriptions which gets my BP down way below the borderline just dooms me to a level of stupidity that 140/80 doesn't include.

Julia, sorry for the ADHD crap, and wishing I was close enough to slip you a couple turquoise wonders

:-( Good luck with the drug juggle. Bumpy ride, but hopefully worth it :-)

I have three Adderall, do you want me to send 'em?
Anna S.: cat-blueeliade on February 16th, 2006 03:04 am (UTC)
Oh, you are sweet--that's okay though, I should have the prescription by tomorrow, I hope. *squishy blue-cat hugs*

Can they up the strattera? I work in a href="http://www.wmhc2.com/">schedule 2 mental health facility</a>. We just finished trialing the strattera with a patient on my unit with negligible results. You found it worked for you huh? What about a riddlin based drug? Anyhoo. If you ever want a second or third opinion... my hubby's an RN, and I've got access to numerous medical texts. I'm a rehab therapist -cognitive behaviourally based and I work with the brain injured/mentally ill/behaviourally challenging population... Good luck chicky.

*hugs* Well, yay for the more upbeat part, at least. Here's hoping you can get your Adderal tomorrow!
