Good evening all —

Where did the cool weather go? Where did the Frustrating Friday posting beepers go?

Sleep: Good

Mood: Still irritable

Plans: Get Ray some more chewies — she is so smart and she is driving my energy into the ground. I received my meds from Prime Mail in 2 days — wow! That's good service and much better than Medco. No copay, no error, hmmm. Now, I have realized that I have been taking my Lamotrigine incorrectly and that may be the cause for my irritability, headaches, hard to focus, nausea, fever, burning nostrils, etc. — no rash thank God! I've been used to cutting pills in half and doubling up on alternating days to, eventually, increase up to 300 mg. But the 2nd dosage was upped to only take half and the new dosage is decreased to take 3/day. Confusing!

Cookie — So sorry for the pain that seems to worsen caused by your doc's delay. Do docs not know that physical pain is not in your head - unless you have headache. Hope you can get some relief for the YI to lessen your pain and discomfort.

Hope you all sleep well tonight and sweet dreams
