    Well my son, who is 19 almost 20, has been in school for AMT. He is also been on prozac, busiprone and trazodone. His bio-father is bi-polar. I used to always try to fix his father, when he would quit taking his meds and get his meds refilled, getting him into the therapist, the psychiatrist...

    Crying and having hard time stopping.

    I feel so guilty for what I feel like is helping my ex (kids' father) rape my daughter. Not intentionally, but if would be angry, I would say "why don't you go out and talk to your dad" when he was out in the shed or something. Cause they seemed to get along and in reality he raped her. How...

    Memory flashes

    I went for my mile walk listening to music and all of a sudden I started having memories flash in my mind. Not all bad but not all good either. Remembering my kids grandma on their dads side. All the guys I have been with and not been with. I don't understand why this is happening. I started...

    Dom Violence random thoughts

    I have so much on my mind lately, I don't know where to turn or what to do. I just want to get it out of my head and down somewhere. I'm not sure this is the right place for this thread. I just need to ramble a bit. My ex-husband/abuser is getting out of prison on the 18th or 19th of this...

    Hurt so bad & depressed. Don't know what to do?

    I don't know what to do. I feel kind of down &/or blah. I was told by my primary dr. that my labs came back that I am post menopausal. That doesn't bother me other than wonder if it's causing some of my problems. I quit taking topamax because it didn't seem to help my mood, but also helps...

    Abilify and feeling sleepy

    The psych doc just added Abilify to my Effexor and I took it after I picked it up at 11 and I'm getting really sleepy now at 1:30 pm. Is that normal. It says it can, and the doc said maybe but at a low dose she didn't think it would. When I google it everyone talks about how it kept them up...

    Effexor and not feeling sad when you are supposed to

    They just upped my medication, due to being extremely down and stressed. Now, though I think I should be more emotional in a good way to speak or it would be "normal" to be sad about my son graduating high school as he is my youngest. But I'm not feeling much of anything about it. Is this...

    Meds worked but then they stopped. Is this unusual?

    (moderator moved from this thread) @bellbird I just went up this morning to 300 mg. I was on 150 mg. for over a year, but I hadn't seen a psychiatrist or a therapist in that time either. I saw new T last week thought I was doing pretty good. The new psychiatrist about a month before new T...

    Confusion

    I need to find another therapist as mine is not "in network" and another psychiatrist. I tried calling my insurance and they tell me to go online and look, but they don't show any psychiatrists and I would like them to be in the same place at least. I also want the therapist to be female as I...

    Feelings and friends

    You ever feel like you share too much with people. I'm always honest and open. Probably get too close to people, and share my feelings easily and give TMI sometimes. Probably too open and people shy away afterwards or don't want to spend a lot of time with me. I don't know how to change it...

    Effexor and hair loss

    I don't know what's going on. My hair is falling out by the handfuls. My T and P tell me that it may be stress, but for some reason, I decided to google effexor and research if anyone else had hair loss due to effexor. And I did find several that did and some ended up with bald spots and then...

    Flashbacks or memories

    I was in chat and someone suggested I post and ask others what this could be? I'm not sure what it is or where it belongs on here, but here goes. Today and yesterday I have been remembering a certain incident or day when my ex, my kids' father, got real angry and kicked our tv and broke the...

    Is there medication for flashbacks?

    I'm just wondering if there is anything to help me through the holidays. I'm on effexor 150 mg. I thought I was doing pretty good. Getting closer to the holidays, I'm having some memories, I guess flashbacks, of past holidays in the past that were not good when the abuse was going on, and I...

    Medication & not feeling much

    Is that the point of medication to not feel much? I wasn't crying or feeling exceptionally anxious. Just was tired most of the time, even when I was sleeping I was tired. Granted I don't get angry as easily, but I don't feel much of anything today. Other days I feel "blah". It's only been...

    Effexor

    How does effexor make you feel? T said it might help me sleep better so I thought I might go ahead and try it, but 2nd along the afternoon I kind of felt just blah or yuck. I'm just so hesitant to take anymore meds because I have been doing pretty good with what I've been on. Just all of a...

    Tired of being tired

    I'm not sure what I need anymore. I don't want to be depressed anymore. I don't want to need help. I know I may need some medication for the rest of my life to keep me from hurting myself or to keep me from trying to run my car into a tree for example. Right now I just don't want to deal with...
