Yeah? Thanks. Its funny how I always associate things like that as being something wrong with me. I view it as a negative instead of a positive personality trait, maybe because if you are going to a psychiatrist, there is an attitude of "something is wrong with me" (In my opinion).

When I was prescribed Lamictal I was trying to find an association between the drug name "Lamictal" and a reason why it will work for me, almost like looking for an equation or a secret code. I came up with the fact that Lamictal is 7 letters long and my last name is 7 letters long. Then if you add 7 (the amount of letters in Lamictal) with 11 ( the amount of letters in lamotrigine) you get 18. I associated that with the fact that my birthday is on the 18th.

Needless to say, Lamictal didnt work. But I keep doing these equations. My Doc doesnt think these thoughts are related to my PTSD. The funny thing is My Grandmother's brother was an OSS agent during World War 2 and was one of the "codebreakers" trying to make sense of Nazi codewords used for communications. I guess it is in my genes to think like this, but it is really useless in my opinion.

> Hey I think that's pretty smart you're finding ways to find the positive in the meds you take. I need to do the same thing. Thanks for the pointers. Fondly, Phillipa
