    Support thread for those with weight gain

    Well, no-one said that it was. It's just what all psychotropics are for - they help you help yourself, that's all.

    Support thread for those with weight gain

    In the US, it's approved for binge eating disorder (and for some addiction recoveries). In regards to BID, it (supposedly) replaces the missing "full" signal.

    Support thread for those with weight gain

    @gealach - have you talked with a prescriber about meds for BID (I'm specifically thinking naltrexone, but I believe there are others).

    Buprobion

    Agree. It's got a unique mechanism of action, and I've found it to be very helpful.

    Is it possible to recover if you believe the world is inherently bad?

    I believe that the world is made up of two things: the planet/natural world (earth, air, water, ecosystem); and us (people). The ecosystem itself - including microscopic to giant critters - can definitely be considered inherently neutral, truly neutral - it exists, and functions. Personally, I...

    Buprobion

    It's been extremely helpful with my major depressive disorder. For some people it has quite strong side effects, strong enough that they can't tolerate it. Increased anxiety, problems sleeping...it's got a fairly strong "upper" effect. The impression I've developed, from watching people try...

    Anyone taken Cymbalta/ Duloxetine?

    Cymbalta was my first antidepressant, and it worked extremely well for me. Some side effects, but for me they were tolerable. It was the foundation of my medications until around 4-ish years into it....and then it seemed to stop working. Turns out, that's the thing with Cymbalta - you will...

    News Worldwide impact of the novel coronavirus (covid-19)

    If anyone wants more non-biased info on herd immunity, this Mayo Clinic article is nice and clear. Herd immunity is achieved either through vaccine, or through widespread infection. The big mis-conception is that herd immunity and vaccination are two different ideas. They're not. It'd be...

    Research An Interesting Report on The Use Of Psychoactive drugs for Treatment Of PTSD

    I think this is related (science-wise) to the effect the drugs have on the fear response/"fear extinction" neural network...using the assumption that one major aspect of the phenomenon of traumatic memory is compartmentalization that is driven not by conscious choice, but by a kind fo...

    Fibro Is Brain Jogging Related to Fibromyalgia and Brain Fog

    Probably not. But she could (likely) give you a referral for a psychiatrist (MD) who could. Specifically: if you can see a neuropsychiatrist, that would be a good move for you.

    News Worldwide impact of the novel coronavirus (covid-19)

    Not saying you are. I'm saying we are living in exceptional times. Mentally going to frustration and blame will only hurt you and make their jobs harder - and remembering that can help you manage your own stress in a frustrating situation.

    Fibro Is Brain Jogging Related to Fibromyalgia and Brain Fog

    This is entirely possible, given that you were diagnosed with some kind of brain damage when you were a child (damage caused learning disability and aphasia), and then had surgery in 2018 to remove a benign brain tumor - surgery which has caused some loss of brain function (not an uncommon...

    News Worldwide impact of the novel coronavirus (covid-19)

    OK, whatever. I think a little tolerance for the medical staff that are on the frontlines trying to triage wouldn't be inappropriate. A little co-operation isn't too much to expect.

    General Support Group

    It's always good to check out your local NAMI (www.nami.org) chapter. They often run support groups for supporters of various kinds of mental illnesses. And often, they can help regardless of the family member's diagnosis. Our forum isn't specifically targeted at supporters of military vets...

    News Worldwide impact of the novel coronavirus (covid-19)

    It doesn't seem like there was freaking? They took the temp, right after you walked in, it was 100 (not unusual at all for a person walking in the heat), they ask you to sit + wait a minute? two? Then check it again. I get the opposite coming in from the cold, seeing my doctor - I come in...

    So - are you wondering if your 'brain jogging' is causing you to have physical pain?

    Fibro Is Brain Jogging Related to Fibromyalgia and Brain Fog

    @spinningmytires - I doubt that what you're describing has a clear relationship to fibro; it's got very clear correlations to a number of neurological processing disorders, as you've rightly pointed out. I'm curious - is there any connection that your doctors have discussed with you between...

    General Help

    He's never seen a mental health professional - so, unless he's willing to motivate his own recovery, which would likely require an active participation in some kind of support network as well as some amount of reading up on PTSD, what it is, etc...I don't see how he can move forward, let alone...
