  2. Hi All Emsamers Good to hear from each. We have a New Year starting. So in the words of Paul the Apostle *(my Paraphrase)---I am not perfect, but one thing I do, reach forth to those things Which are before, forgetting all those things which are behind. I Strive forth to that calling which is before Me-You.**Part of a letter he wrote to the Phillipians , chapter 3 versus 13-14. Paul wrote that from prison. He didn't know how long he would be there, or if tommorrow he would be let out or face death. Chained to a guard at all times, yet he was so positive. ( He was later beheaded) We have to face this new year with all its new challenges. Let's do our best to face each Positively and as just another mountain or valley we must go thru. Theres rest and green pastures also before us as well. HAPPY NEW YEAR REMEMBER GOD CARES AND HE REALLY LISTENS AND LOVES EACH OF US
  3. Hi I 'm going thru a very good work book called Ten Days to Self-Esteem by Burns . It really makes you stop and evaluate the way you think. Its really got me questioning my thoughts and reactions which in turn is helping with my depression. If you think you would like to try it. You can find some good buys on it at Amazon . com. Included in the workbook /book are many self exams for depression and anxiety. Evaluations of different challenges in your life. It's worth a try ==my pdoc uses it quite a bit in his practice with prison inmates. If it can help them I'm giving it a try and its helping what I tell myself. You become more POSITIVE THINKING HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR REMEMBER GOD LISTENS AND HE REALLY DOES CARE graycoyote
  4. Hi All Emsamers: Hope everyone has had a Great CHRISTMAS!!! Our home is too small for even a small tree but we had a great time with family and friends filling our place with fun and laughter. It was very nice. We have had our share of bad ones. But this one goes down as one of the best. I am doing much better since leaving the 12mg patch and going to 2/6mg patches.(The 6mg are smaller and seem to stick to me much better/not 100% but better). As long as I faithfully take klonopin and xanax at every meal I 'm handling the stress of building a house. I keep trying to miss doses and when I do somehow my wife can tell and lets me know I'm stessing out, claims I get ill, mad at the world----surely not me. Sooo I go back to taking the meds as I am suppose too. My youngest son is home for the holidays and some how He picks up on it, I guess it really does show. Hopeing and expecting a great new year. New challenges and new experiences. You each have been an encouragement this past year. GOD BLESSINGS ON EACH OF YOU John/graycoyote
  5. Hi I take 25mg of Seroquel and 2-0.5mg Klonopin to help sleep. I never have awaken groggy. I'm up before 6 am most days. I awaken refreshed and ready to go. Have a great Christmas Remember GOD CARES
  6. Hi All Emsamers: I've finally given up on the 12mg patch and started using 2 -6mg patches at the same time. The 6mg patch sticks better. At least for me. So I'm feeling much better I believe part is from receiveing the right dose every day. Plus I'm going to the doc every week right now. I had already written Eve about the Cognitive Behavior Therapy already and it really makes you self exam yourself and thoughts. If you decide to try Cognitive Behavior Therapy your own Pshychologist may know a lot about it. The Ten days to Self-Esteem by Burns is what my Doc is using. I found it on Amazon very cheap, I've even had to reorder to get one for my wife. I copied the Depression Test and The Anxiety Test and have to take it every day. I've been amazed at the improvements I've made. It was just amazing to me how many distorted thoughts I have--> that lead to what I tell myself -->which directly leads to how I feel....depression,....anxiety,....sadness,even panic attacks. Some of you might want to speak to your doc about it. Have a GREAT CHRISTMAS GOD is Right There With You, Remember HE CARES and HE WANTS TO HEAR FROM US,HE TRULY LISTENS and CARES
  7. Happy Thanksgiving All Emsamers: In answer to Eve I take a 12 mg Emsam patch that comes off -->all or partly a lot -->which inturn makes no one know how much I am getting. I also take a 0.5 Klonopin at every meal with 2 at bed. Along with 0.25 xanax at every meal and at bed. Also a 40 mg Seroquel at bed. I also have a prescript for Ambien which I have take maybe once in a year and a half. I blame my rescent downturn partly on not receiving a consistent dose of Emsam and also stressing out over building a house. Along with not keeping a rigid rutine of work, exercise , sleeping and eating. I'm doing much better now I set alarms on my cellphone to go off. at set intervals for meals and when to quit working. I also going thru the work book 10 Days to Self-Esteem by Burns. It's Cognitive Behavior Therapy that has really made me stop and consider why ,what when,who and how much. And am I thinking correctly. I'm suppose to stop and consider a list of questions every hour. It had me thinking a lot differently I can truly tell you that. So between the meds and the examining myself, I am doing much better. ASK, SEEK,KNOCK---GOD BLESS
  8. Hi All Emsamers: I'm still not doing my best, had to have eye surgery to correct eye lashes getting into eye and saggy eye lids from losing all the weight I had gained from melaril all those years. I have about 20 stitches in each eye. Not pleasant to look at right now. Torbie--I was told by my pdoc I could take 2 Benadryl for colds, I usually buy the WalMart brand and it works for me. I knew someone once that was taking it as a sleep aid prescribed by her doc. Thanks to all who are calling BristolMeyers about the problems with Emsam you are having. I asked the manager over marketing why they had pulled the web site for Emsam --he really didn't know. Said so lame excuse that they had a problem with the FDA. Please call if you have problems --they will even reimburse you thru your pharmacy. So if you are having problems call 1-800-321-1335 for the makers of emsam Bristo Meyers Squibb. REMEMBER GOD HEARS US, AND LOVES US HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING
  9. Hi All Emsamers I finally got so depressed/stressed I've been hospitalized for awhile. I feel like I'm spiralling downward again already and I've only been out of the hospital a week. I think the problem is that I don't get a cosistant dose of emsam. I am on the 12 mg. patch but it continues you fall off as I work on the new house sometime during the day. While I was in the hospital I exercised but I quess its not the same as pulling wire,ccrawling under the house and across the attic among many other duties. I contacted BristolMeyers but got the run around. Please if you have had problems with Emsam contact them. That's the only way they are going to change it. It's the only med that has helped me, I hate to see it fail and stop being sold. Those of you that are having rashes , itching and the patch falling off really need to report it to Bristol Meyers Squibb. Last I looked they had removed the emsam web site. I called and complained about the web site also this last box of patches had started making me itch and over half are falling off during the day. They claim they want to know and are reimbusing me on the patches. So if you are having problems call 1-800-321-1335 for the makers of emsam Bristo Meyers Squibb. I wish my body would let me take a MAOI by mouth. I tried once with disastrous results with bloodpressure but it was great for the depression. So I'm stuck with the Patch Thinking and PRAYING for you all', John GOD REALLY DOES CARE and LOVES US
  10. Hi All Emsamers and Ex Emsamers: I have been very busy with building the new home, I have neglected you guys. I got so I was working all the time--starting at daylight,eating lunch at 4:00pm and supper at 11:00pm. I neglected bible reading, praying, and my wife and exercise. I finally got myself into a very bad depression, so low my wife wanted me to be hospitalized. Got ahold of my Pdoc and he made me quit on the house for a week and then go back - with the committment quit at 5:00pm meals on time, exercise,pray,to take one day off for fishing or something else, plus Saturday for my wife and Sunday ofcourse for GOD. I neglected my wife to the point she hated the house and will not even go in it. I thought I had lost my wife after 32 years. We've made a compromise that if I'll follow Her and the Pdocs rules while wiring the home--she'll get back involved. I don't want to build a home without her inpuut or help. I don't want it to be a house but a home!!! The Depression has gotten better slowly --the docs got me taking 1/2 a 0.5 xanax along with a klonopin 0.5 at every meal. Those of you that are having rashes , itching and the patch falling off really need to report it to Bristol Meyers Squibb. Last I looked they had removed the emsam web site. I called and complained about the web site also this last box of patches had started making me itch and over half are falling off during the day. They claim they want to know and are reimbusing me on the patches. So if you are having problems call 1-800-321-1335 for the makers of emsam Bristo Meyers Squibb. I wish my body would let me take a MAOI by mouth. I tried once with disastrous results with bloodpressure but it was great for the depression. So I'm stuck with the Patch Thinking and PRAYING for you all', John GOD REALLY DOES CARE and LOVES US
  11. Hi all Emsamers: I am having serious issues with the family, me and the Doc. I promised all-- I would work the new house construction like a job. I would have certain hours and I would subcontract out most of the work. Well------I haven't did my part I'm out at daylight, I eat lunch sometime between 12:00 and 4:00 depends if I remember or have to go for material. I eat a McD's wrap and a glass of water in the truck a lot. I don't put up my tools or get home from getting more material or having something built till after dark. I eat supper of usually ceral around 10:00 or 12:00. I just can't seem to stop. I keep finding one more thing to do. If I promise my wife we are going somewhere I either forget or keep finding things to do till its late. Maybe I can blame it on the Emsam???? I am terribly overwhelmed. It wasn't bad while the men where coming everyday drying the house in, I was helping them. When they where here I would clean and burn,finish a wall, get material or have items ready for the next day. But now that its just me I am having a harder time stopping. I 'm making my wife hate the house. I cancelled my pdoc appt in Atlanta, my wife thinks he would have hospitalized me. But I did write him and tell him what was going on and he said for me to take some time off----fishing therapy. I tried for one day which helped but the house keeps calling. I am trying to get myself under control, I know I need to for my sanity and my marriage. We've only been together 32 years. I'm going to hire a man to help me do the small stuff I'm sweating so much over. There's just little things I don't want to contract out. Small things to be ready for the plumber and the electrician (me I'm an elctrician) . Things like blocking in the wall for toilet paper,curtains,towel holders,handicapp handles, flooring the attic space,etc. you kind of get the idea. Just small things but they have to be done by someone. Then I can wire it, I traded by wiring the plumbers home for him to plumb mine. Sorry I've taken up so much time. But Please but me in your prayers. I need the help from above to get me in control. Thanks If I just take my on advice God Cares, He Listens and He is our HELP
  12. Hi All Good to hear from everyone. Sounds like most are at least coping. Eve, you might be right about the emsam not actually taking the weight off, maybe it just made me feel like doing things.Helping with the depression so much. The doc had me start walking while I was in the hospital, because I had had trouble with a MAOI before causing my bloodpressure to go out of control. Sooo when I got home I just kept walking and the pounds came off. It was such a relief not to be soooo depressed. I've got a nordic track bike for inside now and I really like it.got it at Sears. Its so hot outside even at 5:30am and you can exercise and watch tv or read with the fan blowing on you. I'm outside the rest of the day sweating so its a break to be inside and ride. I normally am like you Eve and try to do it before the day gets starrted. I have found it makes a difference in me. Eve== I take 2 -0.5 mg Klonopin at bed with 25 mg Seroquel ---they both help you rest and sleep well. But I have found when getting up early --like after only 2 or 3 hours sleep( going hunting,fishing, or some family being rushed to the hospital) I function fine. Just as well as anyone else, I might be a little sleepy but I can drive for hours or do what ever is required. The hospital sent me home with a prescp. for ambien which I filled but have never needed but maybe once or twice in a year and a half. I have some photos of the new house going up in my albums, if anyone wants to see what South Ga looks like. And a bunchof old men working. Praying for you all God Cares
  13. Hi Emsamers My heart breaks for you Eve. You sound so down. You where the one who encouraged me so much when you wrote back in th middle of July. You reminded me as Leslie has, about the importance/balance of exercise. It must be very important to the release of some chemical in the brain in relation with the Emsam. However it is-- I know it influences my day and the amount of work I can do and whether I have to take any xanax. Plus the added benefit of better sleep and weight loss as well. i pray for you- that this will pass quickly. That you'll find the right cobination of meds. Your peace of mind. I shared with everyone on one of my post in July the MEMO FROM GOD ---1 - 10. I have it on my bathroom mirror --please copy and paste it , shrink it to fit where you need it . Put it somewhere you can read it daily. For several years I even had a copy on the sun visor of my truck, I needed to be reminded that bad. Leslie, I know how it feels when you have a child in jail. I believe you are doing the right thing. They/we have to face the consequences of their/our own decisions. At some point , when you think you can handle it,you'll need to let her know you love her, but you are not getting her out. Remember GOD was the Perfect parent to Adam and Eve, yet they made wrong decisions and sinned, He even kicked them out of Eden!!! Remember the story of the Prodigal Son in the BIBLE (LUKE 15:11-32) --the father watched for the sons return--but he didn't go searching for him. And although the son was at the end of his rope living and eating with the pigs, in a pig pen, that didn't make him a pig. He was still a son. He finally came to his sinces and straightened out. The BiBle doesn't tell us how long he was gone. My son was in jail several times, before realizing I wasn't getting him out and he had to change. It was up to him. I nor his mother could or should make the decisions for him. It hurts. He is doing well now but it took years. GOD BLESS YOU, HE REALLY CARES
  14. Hi Eve and all other Emsamers: I've lost around 57 lbs since starting emsam a year and a half ago. I believe the weight loss has been a direct result of the emsam giving the mental stability and the energy drive to stay busy and exercise. The exercise has did wonders for me. Not counting all the people asking about my weight or not even recognizing me because of it , that makes you feel very good and lets you know how many people are watching you. I have not had any bad sleep problems. I did at first have an occasional problem of not getting sleepy , but it is very rare. My Pdoc sent me home with ambien, which I was taking while in the hospital, but I don't take them at home. However, I do get along fine with only 5 to 6 hours sleep. For me I take 2 klonolpin 0.5 mg at bed time ,also I take one seroquel 25 mg They both are to help me sleep well. But I don't get any side effects from them. Getting good sleep is very important for Depression health . I have taken my bed time meds at 12:00 and gotten up at 3:oo to go fishing, without any problem. I'm still building the house--put a couple of photos on my site if anyone would like to see God Bless You All, Don't FORGET HE CARES [size="3"]
  15. I can understand how you feel Zoebaby I think it is normal for us to question. I believe and I know our believe and salvation thru JESUS is not based on how we feel. Feelings-- as you know after suffering with depressionfor so long, can not be trusted. Feelings--They come and go --He IS Real and HE is with you whether I or You feel Him at any given moment. Thank you GOD or salvation is not based on how we feel but on the sacrifice of Jesus and by His Grace are we saved. When you asked Him into your heart at age 8, you still remember how real it was. HE is still there , HE IS With you right now. That's where faith comes along--just think how Noah and his family felt while building a boat and no one but his family got saved and it took 125 years to build the boat. I think he and his family wondered how,when,where,why and are we really doing this right?? I came across this several years ago and have it on my bath mirror--may it help you as it has did me: Memo from GOD... Effective immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need to make in YOUR life. These changes need to be completed in order that I may fulfill My promises to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in this life. I apologize for any inconvenience, but after all that I am doing, this seems very little to ask of you. I know, I already gave you the 10 Commandments. Keep them. But follow these 10 guidelines, also. 1. QUIT WORRYING Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry. Have you forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens and carry them for you? Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes your way? 2. PUT IT ON THE LIST Something needs done or taken care of. Put it on the list. No, not YOUR list. Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care of the problem. I can't help you until you turn it over to Me. And although My to-do-list is long, I am after all... God. I can take care of anything you put into My hands. In fact, if the truth were ever really known, I take care of a lot of things for you that you never even realize. 3. TRUST ME Once you've given your burdens to Me, quit trying to take them back. Trust in Me. Have the faith that I will take care of all your needs, your problems and your trials. Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. Problem with finances? Put it on My list. Problems with your emotional roller coaster? For My sake, put it on My list. I want to help you. All you have to do is ask. 4. LEAVE IT ALONE Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm feeling much stronger now, I think I can handle it from here." Why do you think you are feeling stronger now? It's simple. You gave Me your burdens and I'm taking care of them. I also renew your strength and cover you in my peace. Don't you know that if I give you these problems back, you will be right back where you started? Leave them with Me and forget about them. Just let Me do my job. 5. TALK TO ME I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was making you crazy. Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I'm in control. But there's one thing I pray you never forget. Please, don't forget to talk to Me - OFTEN! I love YOU! I want to hear your voice. I want you to include Me in on the things going on in your life. I want to hear you talk about your friends and family. Prayer is simply you having a conversation with Me. I want to be your dearest friend. 6. HAVE FAITH I see a lot of things from up here that you can't see From where you are. Have faith in Me that I know what I'm doing. Trust Me; you wouldn't want the view from My eyes. I will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs. You only have to trust Me. Although I have a much bigger task than you, it seems as if you have so much trouble just doing your simple part. How hard can trust be? 7. SHARE You were taught to share when you were only two years old. When did you forget? That rule still applies. Share with those who are less fortunate than you. Share your joy with those who need encouragement. Share your laughter with those who haven't heard any in such a long time. Share your tears with those who have forgotten how to cry. Share your faith with those who have none. 8. BE PATIENT I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse experiences. You grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many trades, travel to so many places, meet thousands of people, and experience so much. How can you be so impatient then when it takes Me a little longer than you expect to handle something on My to-do-list? Trust in My timing, for My timing is perfect. Just because I created the entire universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should always rush, rush, rush. 9. BE KIND Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you. They may not dress like you, or talk like you, or live the same way you do, but I still love you all. Please try to get along, for My sake. I created each of you different in some way. It would be too boring if you were all identical. Please, know I love each of your differences. 10. LOVE YOURSELF As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself? You were created by me for one reason only -- to be loved, and to love in return. I am a God of Love. Love Me. Love your neighbors. But also love yourself. It makes My heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when things go wrong. You are very precious to me. Don't ever forget that! ~~~ With all My heart, I love YOU! God
  16. Hi Emsamers: Eve-Sorry to hear the 9 mg has did you so bad. I just can't believe its the emsam so maybe it is the tooth. Infection can spread and cause havoc in other areas. And we all know how a absess can effect how we feel--ouch --hurts to just think about it. I flew to Penn. once for some training and the flight caused a tooth to major absess, I guess because of the pressure while flying. I didn't learn much that week for all the pain I was in. Be careful with that infection, I just had a friend develop staff from an ant bite, he almost lost his hand. MAOI's can very well affect your blood pressure. Mine has been low since loosing the weight and exercising so much so I've beeen taken off the high blood pressure med I was on. MAOI taken orally wrecked havoc on my blood pressure way too high like 280/200 boy what a headache you get from that. I had to be emergency hospitalized and taken off the MAOI very quickly. I and the rest of us will Be Praying for a fast recovery/ can't have you down you have encouraged us too much. I have a Prose Letter titled MEMO FROM GOD that I did have on my bath mirror If the adm. don't think it take up to much room I'll copy it here --it has encouraged me. But it may be too long. I'll try and see what happens. REMEMBER GOD CARES Memo from GOD... Effective immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need to make in YOUR life.

  17. Hi Fellow Emsamers Got back to exercising, trying to eat at regular times--having trouble with that. But feel much better. I do much better when on a regular routine. The main carpenter I hired to help build my home is 80 years old --his routine--phone off at 9:00 and up at 4;00 am. He's usually at my home at a quarter to 6:00am. His main helper is 70 something . They start at 6:00 usually take one 10 min. break and leave me on or before 1:00pm. Unless its a bad day and they quit early. Go home to eat lunch and work around their homes the rest of the day. Keep up their own yards and gardens. They do have a few men in their 50's working as well. But the oldest ones work hard and don't back up to picking up 2x12s or any other item. Hope I'll be able to do it in my 70's. They don't have to work they just enjoy it. The emsam is still working at the 12 mg level and for anyone having libido-- problems it gets better as your body becomes more adjusted to the emsam. That is for a man and I would hope for you women as well. GOD BLESS, PRAYER WORKS AND YOU KNOW GOD CARES FOR EACH ONE OF US
  18. Hi Emsamers: Thank you Eve, your letter meant so much it was very encouraging. I went to see my physcologist this morning and he told me basically the same as you. He, my wife and I had a bargain I would work the new house as a job and quit at a certain time. I haven't been doing that and that is why I haven't had time for exercise or eating right. SOOOOOOOO------I hate to say it but I have brought this glithch in the road on myself. I just seem to want to do just one more thing -then one more and then one more---over and over until I haven't eaten and its 10:00. SO I'm doing meaningful tasks but at what price-----neglecting my health, exercise and the relationship with my wife,+++ so between you and my doctor ---I've been reminded whats important . I've also been reminded at how many times in the study of Jesus' life while on earth, he drew away from the crowds ----sometimes by himself for prayer and rest and sometimes with his disciples. We can work ourselves to death doing good things but there is a cost involved. We have to keep our minds on what is really important. As with Jesus' example prayer was more important most of the time than healing multitudes and sometimes just going off fishing with friends was important-----and He knew He only had 3 years to be that example on earth for us. Talk about time management.=====I have a lot to learn. I have learned there are different kinds of Praying , we want to strive for effectual praying --which does the most for us and others as well. May we Learn together on the road of life we are on. God Bless You ALL, KEEP PRAYING , HE HEARS AND CARES
  19. Hi Everyone Been very busy, missed you all , welcome to all new emsamers, Glad to hear most are doing very well. In reading the posts I saw where someone was cutting there's in half the Bristol Meyer people told me not to do that. It would effect the med somehow??? Also I read where someone else was having constipation --I thought mine was from age maybe not --but I drink a half cup of warm prune juice or apple juice it works for me when needed. But I'm a man seems like everyone else is a woman so you may be a little different. Good to read how everone is doing. I'm having to take extra xanax with all the stress of building a new home, there are just so many decisions and I try to find the best prices on the building materials. So I wind up starting my day at 5:15am, my carpenters arrive at 5;45am and after running all day to make sure they have material,nails, tools etc. I eat lunch usually in the truck and supper at 10:00 or later. You would think I would lose mor weight but I am gaining--It could be from eating so lateand I've quit exercising. Got to get started back, when I was walking for 30 minutes every day I lost weight and seemed to get more accomplished. So WHY don't I start back??? My youngest son is moving from Atlanta,GA to near Hartford, Conn is anyone from that area? Needs to find a good church up there! GOD BLESS YOU ALL, DON'T EVER GIVE UP, GOD REALLY CARES
  20. I especially liked your quote. I also feel like I'm out of the fog of depression--at least half the time anyway. The right medicine helps SO MUCH Keep at it
  21. Hi Fellow Emsamers: Haven't got much time to write, but wanted to let torbietoes know that I believe the article / study at Harvard was also reprinted in one of the Psy Journals Doc's receive. Ask your Doctor to give you a copy he should have one that is where I got mine from. A lot of Psy'Docs want to stay up on the latest findings. Praying for you all.
  22. Remember this world is not your home you are just passing thru. Be Praying for you. You can TRUST GOD
