    Thank you so much for checking in! Glad you are feeling better. In case you are not aware of this, med changes can cause nightmares. 26 years ago, I was put on an older type of anti-depressant - Imipramine (Tofranil was the brand name). I forgot a dose once, and had night terrors. I never did that again. When I went off of it, it had to be very, very slowly.

    Tatiana and Aliona
    ...have single-handedly lifted my depression, at least for a few hours. But Aliona may trigger the depression again because it's unfair that anyone can wear that monstrosity and be so damn hot!

    So glad to see you posting and happy to hear the Olympics & Skating are working their magic on you. :). Have you seen the Medal Ceremony for the Team Event? I got such a kick out of watching Tatiana during it. She was so giddy, full of joy & was going let us know it & bring us along for the ride too. I can't remember the last time I watched someone have so much fun belting out their National Anthem, and she was w/out a doubt belting it out & having a ball doing it too. :D. It's one of my Favourite Moments from these early days of the Games. :)

    I really do hope you have a chance to see it, as it should hopefully give you a smile. Glad to hear things are slowly becoming a wee bit better. Just keep taking things day by day & remember we're here.

    I'm glad the skating has been making you feel better and hope you can continue to enjoy the skating at the Olympics, and find other things to enjoy after the Olympics are over.

    I wish I could give everyone reps, but it keeps telling me that I've given out too much rep. So please know that I do appreciate all your support. It's no exaggeration to say that I would be in a much worse state without all of you. The Olympics would be much less fun without FSU!

    Glad to hear, Gazpacho! Sometimes what we need is a reminder that the world will continue on, but it's such a blessing to have people to remind you to get on that train and not miss out. :)

    Hi Gazpacho, Just checking in with you. I'm hoping that you are still watching and enjoying the Olympics. Having something that you enjoy and can look forward to every day can be therapeutic. Hopefully, the Olympics will get you through until your new/adjusted meds can stabilize. Everyone here, on this board cares about you. We all get into battles about some topics. But, one undeniable thing is this: We come back because we enjoy the debate and, more importantly, we enjoy the people who have become our FSU Family. Don't ever feel alone, you always have us :). XOXO

    After a few days feeling better, I started feeling horrible again last night. Now I want to be dead again, but in a more agitated way than before.

    Even watching some of my favorite performances from this Olympics has done nothing to cheer me up. Nor has the fact that the skating results I hoped for largely have materialized.

    Do you think you'll have more headway with your psychiatrist now that you feel different? You have to try.
