I feel like I've been run over by a truck. I don't know if it's the meds, the diagnosis, or the lupus doing it to me. LOL
Right now my thoughts are just absolutely racing, and I want to make my mind slow down. It's like I have a million thoughts going on in my head and I just want to make it stop. I can honestly see now how they say that people that are put on anti-depressants who are actually bi-polar can end up committing suicide. Their minds start racing and racing and they just want to make the thoughts stop. Don't get me wrong, I would never do that, but right now my head is spinning out of control and I'm trying to figure out how to calm it down so that I can function to be a mom today. When what I really want to do is go off and do some really crazy wild things that just aren't me. Bizarre.
I think the mood stabilizer is Lexapro. (He threw the name of a lot of meds out there yesterday asking if I had taken them, but I think that was the one he decided on).
He is also going to work me to get past the urge to starve myself (hopefully) to gain control. When my life is spinning out of control, the one thing I can control is my weight, only I do it to the extreme. So he is going to help me work on that. I've been hospitalized 4 times for treatment for anorexia, but hopefully he will really help me now that I have a *real* daignosis.
Sorry for rambling, like I said, my head is just racing right now.
I am sooo sorry! OMG! I was going threw the posts and saw this one..I was like'oh,I didnt see that one'...then I read it and remembered I read it on Saturday(I think it was sat.) and I became distracted and had to get off the computer...I meant to reply then and forgot I'm seriously losing it! LOL
My thoughts move and jump around alot too. I can be having a conversation with someone and then remember something I wanted to say two days ago and then start talking about that...without warning the person I am changing subjects...no wonder people think I am weird Well,no one actually says I am weird...but it's the 'look' LOL Lately I have been having more conversations in my head,then out loud. It's like my thoughts are running so fast I cant keep up with them. Same thing with typing...my thoughts are moving waaaay faster then my fingers(and those are moving fast..LOL)
I think once you get in the swing of things with the meds you will start feeling better. It sounds like you have a great Dr,that is going to help you.

I'm glad you can relate to what I'm saying. I know what you mean about the typing, too. It's almost like your brain is working faster than your fingers can type, and you end up sounding like a blathering idiot. I've edited mosre posts in the past week or so than I think I ever have. Maybe I should re-read them BEFORE I hit the "post" button! ROFL!!
And I do think you're weird, but that's what I love about you! Tee hee!! (Just kidding, hon!)
