Thanks C_E (and RJ :)

I am taking about 1-2 mg every second day. I am on a whopper dose of Tegretol (carbamazapine) 500mg's 2x a day, which kills agitation *dead*...thankfully, because I take Effexor, and that CAUSES it's a balancing act. I have mild Asperger's, so the Abilify AND Risperdal I take tame that angle.

I know it seems like a LOT of meds, but to me, they balance each other out..creating a clarity like I haven't seen in years!! (If needed, I take a combo bromocriptine and lyrica for a boost...but that is prn.)

I have been on meds for almost 30 years now....and am really only just getting a Zen kinda balance. No freak wanting to harm. Plus, I have a counsellor, and am working on life skills. But, honestly, JUST BEING....I don't care about having to prove anything, or BE anyone special. Just waking up, with my little cat, in my little apartment...with some food, warmth...going out for a nice walk with tunes. I HATE this idea of ambition, that WE HAVE to prove ourselves or whatever. Bullcrap. Just being a nice, good person....that's it, really.
