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!
