    I've been posting in the dark, dusty corners of the forum Mike (really Suzi! Those cobwebs are getting ridiculous now!) so you will have missed it. I've just come off escitalopram and am on day 5 of paroxetine. It's kind of my last resort as the doctors insist that there is nothing else they can give me if these don't work. Not good when things have been pretty bad.

    Booknerd, it feels so different to anxiety. The only way I can manage it is to keep busy, with anxiety I can't.

    I'm just wondering if a mood stabiliser is worth asking your dr about .....
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    I know, will your GP even remotely consider prescribing something like that?

    I think I mentioned another gp had suggested it before and he disagreed. But I know that my mood today and yesterday is far from normal for me

    Oi! You know where the cleaning cupboard is!

    I think you're handling this changeover really well love. I know it doesn't feel it right now, but you are doing great.
    I also think there are many other things that they could try, should they be able to.

    I'm too short to reach the corners of the ceiling

    I just hate feeling like I have done the last couple of days. It isn't the first time it's happened, except last time it was dismissed when I mentioned itnto the doctor.

    It shouldn't be dismissed at all. Definitely keep a note of it love - you are still keeping a mood diary I hope?
