A Fresh Look

Its tiring. The Community Mental Health Team seem to make it more tiring. Things have changed so much in just twenty years. They used to say you would be on Lithium for your whole life. Then they came up with more lucrative mood stabilisers. Because Lithium was cheap as chips. Then they said it was ...

Re: What's wrong with me??

Re: Mental Health ruining my life!

Hi, I dont know if this helps, but hope so. With all that is going on is there any way you can write things down, and find a pathway out (over time) that way? You have, ultimately been honest and your initial dishonesty was for an altruistic reason, so dont be hard on yourself. It could, as you say,...

Re: How it is

I have only known one person to be put on Pregabalin. He raved about it initially, but then put on a lot of weight and the benefits diminished. There is one called Busperone that is supposed to be similar, but less costly. It is like a non addictive, slow release and long lasting anti-anxiety..... G...

Re: A Dog for Therapy ..........

I had cats for many years and they were fab. They get me through each day even now they are passed, remembering them. Like Deb though, I dont feel able to have another pet just yet. Maybe next year. It is certainly something to aim to. Love to watch the dogs on the beach. And found a channel called ...

Re: Memory

Thankyou, I guess stress is there... bit of a vicious circle when you feel stressed about having to write everything down. Over time am getting quite organised with it. So much in news at moment about dementia. I dont take meds Amaya, unless its absolutely necessary, try and live healthy but not pur...
