    Hi everyone!
    First, I want to thank 5150sick for telling me about this thread! This might just be what I need right now, along with my 10.5 ml tank of Panda Shake!
    I will whip up a bio of who I am since I'm new to VU.

    I read about half of the first page of this thread and felt for everyone whose story I read and, also comfortable enough to tell mine here.
    I will go back and catch up on the rest of the thread to get to know all of you better and finish reading about your pain, no matter what form it takes.

    For now, I'll start by saying I am fortunate that 5150sick had the guts to start this thread for us. Especially for someone like me that has a difficult time expressing myself correctly and, defending myself. Typing a thought-out letter is much more effective for me than a live conversation. It takes me too long to process things with 50 other thoughts flying around in my head.
    All I ask is that you give me a chance or a second chance if I'm already on your bad side.

    *Btw, I saw someone mention Gabapentin. I took that for RLS (caused by Abilify) but had to stop because it caused mania, blurred vision, and really bad rage! I also weened myself off of Pramipexole, after finding out fully alert people have fallen asleep at the wheel while taking it! I don't care if there's a 0.5% chance or whatever of that happening, I won't take ANY chance of living with the fact that I killed a family of 4 for the rest of my life! Seems kind of selfish of me that I risked their lives for some comfort from RLS, in my head.

    Anyways, I'm happy to be here and look forward to talking with everyone!

    My back is fucked up tonight.
    I went to a local park where they have the yearly lighting of the parks Christmas lights and they have decorated boats go by the lake.
    I had to stand in line for an hour at the food truck then carry my folding chair from the car all the way to the lake and back when it was over.

    Now I'm paying for it with a 6.5 pain level.

    That is one of the hardest things about a disability.
    Accepting it and adjusting your lifestyle to it.
    yeah life sucks more, get used to it....

    At least it has been difficult for me to adjust.
    Still working on it after 20 years....

    Yep. 13 years. I had a mini meltdown for about 20 minutes in the last week. Have the meltdown, take a deep breath, then move forward as best you can. For me, the meltdown doesn't happen too often, though I do get frustrated from time to time, but without much choice in the matter, move along is about the best option. Better than doing nothing.

    I am bipolar, agoraphobic, have generalized anxiety, and ptsd. Every day is a battle. I have been fighting an addiction for years and this year I finally have been in the winning side.

    If any one needs someone to talk to I'm always here and can offer advice and a shoulder. Believe me I need someone who doesn't know me someone's to vent to. I'm going through a breakup a relationship I knew better than to start. It still hurts the same.

    I've fought all that except the bipolar; mine was "Major Depressive Disorder," with some peri-menopause thrown into the mix just to make it even more fun -- wheeeeee adolescence in reverse! ;) And it looks like we have the same phone, too -- nice phablet, huh?!

    It can and will get better, if you keep at it. And even breakups can be a good thing, clearing the way for a better, healthier relationship, with a clearer idea of what you really want and need -- my husband and I celebrated 30 yrs of wedded bliss this summer, he with his 2 divorces previously, and me with one.

    Hang tough!
