    Saw pdoc-may trigger

    I saw pdoc for an emergency appt and she increased the Abilify by having me take 5mg in the am to stop the voices and the paranioa and added lunesta for sleep when needed. Hopefully I get the meds soon. Its driving me crazy. I am trying everything as a distraction to stop and some of it is not so healthy but it does stop temporarily.

    Hundreds of hugs and I hope things get better soon.

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Hope the meds help. The voices freak me out, so I feel for you. Did pdoc warn you about the really nasty taste you are going to wake up with after taking the Lunesta. I never found a good fix and the altoids pdoc said to chew didn't cut it. It had to just wear off. Didn't know if ya knew. Take care and don't do anything harmful.

    Big hugs, Angel
