  1. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  2. Still working on the insomnia. All the typical tips like avoiding tv , showering or taking a bath , avoiding caffeine and all that don't work for me. I have tried all this. I have done the Ambien thing too. Ambien works but only until tolerance builds, some nights on ambien i feel like I'm tripping and others it seems like it barely works. Plus it is way to addicting. Tried melatonin with mixed results. Usually fell asleep but had way to vivid dreams and woke up feeling more tired. Started taking all the 200mg sr pills in the morning and haven't noticed a whole lot of help there but slightly. Started reducing my dosage, want to go off wb anyway. Think my depression is under control. Gonna go talk to pdoc this week and see if she agrees about helping me wean off or at least reducing dosage.
  3. I been on WB SR for about 6 months. Starting with 100mg, and then bumping up to 200mg. Im a small person so 200mg seems to work great for me. Intially I had some insomnia which dispated after a couple weeks after I adjusted to the dosages. I have had no problems sleeping until the last couple weeks. I dont think the insomnia is caused by stress or anything. I get a racing heart beat right as i am ready to fall asleep. I feel dead tired, and my body is heavy, my brain is clear, and then my heart starts racing. This is what happened in the intial insomnia. has anyone else had insomnia redevelop with WB? Or develop after taking WB for a while?
  4. So my family stresses me out. They are there to support me in my rough times, being depressed and helping me cope with what got me here. But when I go back home to visit them, my parents argue constantly and are impatient, this doesnt create a very stress free environment. My parents also ask me in depth questions constantly like "when are you getting married, what are doing with your life, how serious are you with your boyfriend?" I am in my early 20s , moved out from home with a stable job, but be interogated gets kind of stressful especially when you are trying to deal with depression and trying to focus on the now, I cant even begin to think about what I am doing in a few years. Any advice on how to confront parents / family who mean well but really arent helping with their stressful environment and intergations? I want to be effective but tactful. They are my family, and I dont really want to rid them out of my life even though they are a trigger for my depression.
  5. bump. Wow this article is great. My therapist never stated directly that I am codepedent, but I very much try and be responsible for everyone elses feelings. It is exhausting. i was told by my therapist to stay in my own head and take care of myself 51% of the time. In other words, you cannot control how someone reacts to what you do /say, you can only control your own reactions, so dont try and predict what others will do. Do what you need to do for yourself.
  6. Some background: So my depression is entirely trauma based. Back in september of 08, I was rear ended by two cars at the same time in a car accident. The damage to the car didnt look as bad as the damage to my back. I have been going to a chiropractor for the last 18 months and still have to deal with pain many days. i will go a while with no pain and then a week of pain. In Feb 09, I lost my wonderful amazing job. Along with losing that job, my career path was derailed and I lost much of a social life that came with the job. When 90% of the office is laid off, no one really feels like socializing anymore. In July 09 I moved 1000 miles across the country alone for a new job. In December 09 I had an apartment fire, neighbors dryer started the fire and lost everything I owned. In March 2010 I was diagnosed with an incurable diease that I have to change my entire life style in order to maintain it. I am seeing therapy for the above incidents and taking wellburtin. I say the wellbutrin for the most part, I have some bad days, keeps my mood fairly level. I just want to be like I was before all of this.....especially before I was after the fire. I was SOOO happy. I just want to get back to that. Every time I feel content, for like 5 seconds, seems like something else happens and I cant feel that way anymore. How do you prevent this depression from destroying relationships? I am in a great relationship, but I dont want this to destroy it. He has been there through the fire and through the illness, but how much can one person take before its too much? Any advice?
