I was having a rough depression and pain time for a bit. I'd been playing Glitch, until it closed, which helped for awhile, but then with it gone, the depression crept back up, without me realizing it.
But while I was what I thought was mostly good, Jess made calls for me to psych places, and one, White Marsh Psychiatric Associates, called me back. I scheduled appointments with a therapist, and a nurse practitioner to do my meds. Diane, my therapist, is awesome. She's kind, pleasant, and lets me ramble as needed. It's helped more than I would have expected, to get thing out. Nancy, the NP, is also sweet, even if it took her awhile to figure out what I could take with my other meds.
We decided on Death Rash, er Lamictal. Which is oddly the same thing Jess is on, though it looks like I may end up on a higher dosage. I didn't feel anything during the first two weeks, of 25mg. But whoop, when 50mg came around, so did I.
It's made an enormous difference. I'm much happier, more stable. I feel more alert. After cymbalta killing my libido, I'm horny! Its nice. And best yet, my creativity is like as stream that had been blocked, after the dam broke. It's running high and full, and I'm dragging Jess along in my wake, to the tune of 10,000 words in just over a week! *knock on wood*
