  1. Hey yeah sorry about that. It's helping me more than any SSRI I've tried but I'm only on the initial 15 mg. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I really hope things improve for you. Hopefully some other long term users will chime in. Take care
  2. I agree with what LL said and I can relate to the original poster. I spent a lot of time every day self-diagnosing myself and it's really not a hobby, it's more of an obsession. I wish I could pull myself away from the computer sometimes. I also have too many thoughts involving death. I hope you get some relief soon, it's a very draining thing
  3. Well I hope I didn't ruin your thread. I should have noted I'm only on the starting dose, sorry if I over-shared here but I was more so probably trying to re-assure myself because the truth is not a lot has changed and I don't want to be like this for the rest of my life
  4. Just thought maybe if the tattoo provides some sense of closure or something that wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea.
  5. My vote is Trevor should get the tattoo. There is an endorphin rush and it might be a good and healthy experience for someone coming out of a numb state. I'm obviously no guru but that's just my opinion.
  6. KS, these lyrics helped me today, heard Stevie Nicks on the radio the other day: I took my love and I took it down I climbed a mountain and I turned around And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills 'Till the landslide brought me down Oh, mirror in the sky What is love? Can the child within my heart rise above? Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides? Can I handle the seasons of my life? Well, I've been afraid of changing 'Cause I've built my life around you But time makes you bolder Children get older I'm getting older too ... Hoping they will help you too
  7. I'm not a long term user but I hope it's okay I still post here. I started Mirtazapine little over a month ago along with 2 other medications for depression, social anxiety and OCD. I have something called restless legs syndrome and I've read it's related to dopamine levels. And certain medications affect it like Seroquel. It was really bad on Seroquel, unbearable. Then the first night I took mirtazapine I felt it a small bit but things like caffeine and lots of sugar affect it as well. I've not had it since. Don't know if that's even worth mentioning but I'm interested in your thread because mirtazapine seems to be working well for my anxiety. Hope you'll get some better responses
  8. I've been taking Luvox 100 mg/day for over a month now and no noticeable side effects from it. I'd like to think it's helping, hope it works for you too I took Prozac before, and before that I took Lexapro for a while and also Zoloft. Lexapro was sedating to me and maybe zoloft, but not prozac or luvox. Just my experience, good luck
  9. Veruca hey, how are you doing?
  10. Sorry if this doesn't make sense. I'm not sure what I was trying to ask anymore?
  11. I was just wondering how often people experience this, when or how is it healthy/unhealthy, etc?
  12. Because they want us to feel good! (ok, a VERY wild guess here!) A very good friend of mine told me about this recently and this is a quote from a website, PM me for link: Cats purr as a sign of contentment, but they also seem to purr as a sort of self-soothing medication. Veterinarians know cats purr when they are pain and also at the end of life when they are about to be euthanized. Is it possible humans derive an unknown benefit from purring? “Yes, it is a very interested and valid point,” says Qureshi. “If cats are able to self-sooth through purring, maybe the purring sooths humans in some way we don’t understand.”
  13. ^ That's a great one Epic Thanks for the nuggets of knowledge too.....Inquiring minds want to know......
  14. It's almost like being a hypochondriac. But I did trip and fall over the weekend, leaving a huge gash in my knee and it's infected. Last night I had a very realistic dream where I was at the ocean and these little things got embedded into my feet and left me 'infected' and in the dream it was very painful. So it's like my mind is fixated on the pain, psychological or physical.
