    I hate taking meds, but it at this point it feels necessary. I tried going off my Cymbalta (really low dose for anxiety) about two months ago. I made it about three weeks, then at a certain time of month I had the worst mood swings of my life. That was the end of that.

    What's your condition? Have you ever tried more natural alternatives?

    Generalized anxiety disorder. And apparently really brutal PMS.

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Do you think it's diet related (the anxiety), was there some other cause, or is it pretty much "genetic?" I'm curious how you'd respond to something like 750mg Aniracetam (for anxiety) and 5-10mg Pregnenolone (along with Vitamin C) and fish oil (for PMS). Not saying that you go off your current medication, I'm just wondering if these would also ease your symptoms (damn curiousity).

    I also have ADHD, I was diagnosed pretty young, and the two are very much comorbid. There's also just a lot of various mental disorders on my dad's side of the family, and my mom has dealt with quite a bit of depression.

    Go go genetic mental disorders!

    I've found recently that I have to make a choice between Ginkgo Biloba and not-Ginkgo Biobla. Taking it improves my terrible memory about tenfold, but seems to nullify the effects of antidepressants. I have to make a choice between smart pills and happiness, and for some reason it's a difficult choice. It shouldn't be, but it is.

    Mania kicks all sorts of ass. I liken it to those who physically don't feel pain, though--there are no warning signals when, say, that they have terrible internal bleeding from jagged metal Krusty-Os until they keel over and die. In addition, mania leads to delusions, too. .. mostly of grandeur, of course.

    no mania is fun I thought I crashed yesterday but turns out it was something else. I like being manic even if it means not being able to get on vent. I drew pictures made a video which I can't link cuz I'm on my phone I can but it's a bitch to do. also if there was zilch chance of STDs and pregnancy I'd become a prostitute. plus I'm just awesome.

    IMO, being manic sucks. I ruin my credit every. time. and end up with a bunch of crap I don't want. I tell people off in high style and feel fully justified and righteous at the time, and then after the crash ... ok, usually I still feel fully justified and righteous, but wish I hadn't said everything I said or that I'd perhaps considered not saying anything at all, for a change ... etc. I don't like being hypomanic. It's fucked my life up.
