    I'm not sure. I've never had a good psychiatrist in my life, mostly very rude ones who don't understand emotions well (as in, bluntly asking me if I'd ever tried to kill my self in front of my sister and mother and expecting me to answer quickly), so I'm not sure how I'm supposed to be reacting to them. I'll mention what you said about epilepsy drugs.. side effects aren't usually deadly. So, I feel it doesn't work it's okay. Also if it changes my mood, it's fine.

    I've had a few very bad reactions to drugs, so I definitely am scared. But I would like to be able to handle things more normally..

    Also no, you haven't overstepped any bounds! Thanks for your input :)

    Agreed! I take Seriquel XR. It's an ani-psycotic. A pretty "serious drug". But in lower doses? It does amazing at lowering anxiety and helping to level off my moods and emotions a bit better and did one hell of a job stabilzing me in general.

    Good to know... maybe I'll be able to be more assertive at my next appointment and try a low dose of something "serious"
