I need a piece of advise pls

Posted by Tepi on January 14, 2012, at 22:23:29


Hello
I need some advice from you please. Its not easy for me what to do in this moment. I suffer from a rare disease since I was 15 years old , now Im 31. Its like a combination of Social Phobia+Depression+Some pyschotics symtoms.
I have tried almost ALL in ther market)(benzos,MAOIS,SSRIS,TRICICLYS .
I keep living with a very low quality of life and I want to change a little bit this. I noticed that the last drug I took ,lyrica can help me a little bit in social situations ,I feel more part of the group , but this last only like 4 hrs and it only works when I take it only 1 time in 2 weeks.
I have been drinking alot since last year in order to be able to feel better among people in parties but I know this is not the anwer
Im planning to see a new doc, maybe Im a doomed for my entire life but maybe I can improve my quality of life in order to be able to have a family. Girls dont like people who cant talk
Friends dont like quiet people . I really dont care if Im a quiet person I just wanna feel that its ok to be quiet , I want to feel ok with me.
Its hard to explain my situation
I like challenges and I planning to move to europe in this condition. Im an engineer maybe find a job there although I know it would so hard for the current situation
Should I keep looking for new drugs? There is no cognitive therapy here in Mex.
I was in Chicago in christmas eve and I was going to se a Dr there but I thougth that there is no cure in one session
What do you think about me?

I whish you a good new year to all my friends here

Well I'm so sorry you have been suffering so long. I think most of us know what that feels like. You have incredible strength and endurance, not by choice, but it is a great quality and credit to you.

Ok, this is just my common sense talking. With a history of med failures like yours, why would one want to stay on that journey? I mean, isn't there enough evidence already that whatever modern medical psychiatry has to offer is missing the target? We don't know what the target is, but it has already been proved with you that it is not something that the psych drugs target. It's something else.

Look, one long time psych patient here was pretty much cured when he found out he had sleep apnea and was treated for it. What ends up being an antidepressant with most lyme, candida, or other stealth infection victims, is getting control of the pathogens. Psych drugs usually fail with these people. And, their symptoms are usually so bizarre it is hard to diagnose. As a result, the patient has 3 or more diagnosis instead of just 1, and none of them are really clearcut or provable. They are just names for a cluster of symptoms, The way I see it, bipolar is just a name given to a certain cluster of symptoms....it is not a disease....there is a different disease causing the bipolar symptoms.

So what are the other targets? Well, could write a book on that. All I'm saying is serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine....etc....these things are only a slice of a bigger pie and why we focus only on those I have no clue. Major causes of depression can have nothing to do with those, but instead be related to chronic stealth inflammation, chronic stealth infection, chronic heavy metal/pollutant/toxin accumula, and such. I mean, ya know, these things impact your brain directly and make it feel like crap!

So save the book for another day. Want something right now that covers a whole lot of those mysterious targets? Source Naturals Resveratrol in the yellow bottle (not pink) made from Polygonum, 40mg size. Also get rhodiola rosea by Jarrow, GNC, Thorne. Some of the others might be good, but these three I know are. Some brands aren't very good. I like Thorne the best because of the dose size. The others make doses that are just way to high and I have to empty the capsules to make my own custom doses.

Those 2 phytomedicines have the potential to open up a new world to you. Starting dose for rhodiola should be anywhere between 25mg and 100mg twice a day, depending on immediate tolerability, with a target of 200mg to 400mg or whatever ends up feeling best. Source Naturals dose is one 40mg cap or tab 3 times a day to start, up to 4 caps/tabs 4 times per day. Estimated time for rhodiola to begin feeling helpful is about 2 weeks, though for some people it is immediate and for others maybe 3 weeks. Source Naturals is something you want to be taking for many months and it is not directly an antidepressant so don't be looking for that. Instead just know that over the months it is going to be killing a lot of pathogens including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and even lyme, reversing various kinds of inflammation, removing or nullifying certain toxins, powerful antioxidant, balancing immune system, I mean, on and on with this herb. Rhodiola is more directly an antidepressant , anti-anxiety, anti-crazy, mood stabilizer, energy booster, stress adapter, adrenal balancer, immune booster.

I would not plan on these to bring about remission but I would be reasonably confident of a notable increase in quality of life. That said, rhodiola has brought about remission with long time psych patients before. It does have that potential, more so than meds in my opinion.

Topamax is good for social phobia. Geodon, Abilify, Latuda, Seroquel, etc. are good for depression with psychotic symptoms. Ever tried Mirtazapine?

Tep, what about Traditional Chinese Medicine?

You could find that where you are.

There's not likely to be any magic, but there is nothing more in the pharmacopia for you that will help, IMO.

This is because anything which works for social phobia instantly becomes a drug of abuse, and then becomes unavailable.
