Sad  Med game
I have been on medication for almost 30 years. It was off and on as eventually everything stopped working.

Over a year ago my PDoc put me on a new Anti-D in the spring. It was working well for a few months. However, during the course of the summer I did nothing but sleep. I blamed it on the fractured ribs and then the weather... My energy would pick up for a bit and then I would sleep again, every time I sat in my chair.

I missed my pdoc appointment so I filled her in via email. She suggested I double the anti-d. After that I realized something. 1)I have a problem with one kidney and the drug discourages using it if there is a disease. We don't know the cause as of yet.

2) I forgot my evening dose of anti-anxiety for 2 days in a row. I am still tired today but my urges to self harm have abated and my mood is actually quite good.

My pdoc isn't so great with DID. And I am so terrible at coping with drugs.

RE: Med game
it's difficult when the pdoc doesn't get it. my pdoc only treats my depression. i havent even mentioned DID to him. it would only complicate things.

RE: Med game
Mine is supposed to treat my ED but as it was obviously too complex we just focus on meds. We are going back to hear plan. I misunderstood something my doctor clarified today. Meds sucks. Now comes the worry about weight gain.

RE: Med game
We ended up listening to Pdoc and she just upped by half. It started to kick in and we ended up doing some heavy work in T this week. As well, someone has come to terms with the fact that we were self medicating with wine and agreed to cut back. It has been building for a while.
