Mercedes,

thanks for your post and the touch of hope. yes, i find that having become educated also makes me more anxious -- but perhaps that is good. i just can't get the image out of my mind of repeatedly drowning, my brain not getting enough oxygen.

i am trying to change that image to something more positive.

thankfully, i started the effexor last night, and -- maybe it's psychosomatic -- but my brain feels different, like it doesn't want to start 'migraining.' i'm not even having the optical migraine that i normally would.

i jerked a couple of times last night, seizure-like jerking, but no head involvement. (electrical feeling not in head) i mentioned it to my dr., but now i want to try it for another few days.
