Erika Cook replied to Carmen's discussion 'My first appointment with a psychiatrist' in the group Depression/ Bipolar Support
"So....how did it go? I take medication for both depression and anxiety that works really well.  Mine is not situational, but inherited clinical depression/anxiety disorder.  I liken it to a disease like diabetes...except it's not an…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"I take three different drugs, too.  At first I was overjoyed that there was a treatment for my sickness.  Then it dawned on me that I would have to continue to take drugs for the rest of my life (my anxiety/depression is clinical and…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"Even with the Lexapro, Welbutrin and Clonapin, I still HAVE to go walk every day. I ignored what the rest of my family wanted and got what I needed for myself (first in my life) and I got myself a doberman puppy. We walk together 45 minutes every…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"I've gained weight on Lexapro, too; but I am able to continue working and living, so it's worth it. Having a hard time right now, however, because I am a teacher in California and am one of the 25,000 teachers who received lay off notices…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"I don't really have "friends" either. It's odd, because I am very extroverted; I'm "the funny one", I do anything for others to like me; I'm helpful. I work as a Kindergarten teacher and am the Secretary of…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"1/2 a Lexapro and a Welbutrin in morning whole Lexapro in evening and Clonazipam at night (along with eating Salmon, taking vitamin D, SamE, eating bananas and mandarins). I also go to talk therapy every couple of weeks and take my dogs for 45…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"It's been a while since any of us have commented on here...it all kind of stopped around the holidays...go figure! I survived the season and am happy to talk with you Fancy; we don't actually have to talk about your terrific bum though, do…"

Erika Cook replied to Jay Catt's discussion 'Who is your spotter?' in the group Depression/ Bipolar Support
"My husband is my spotter, but it's frustrating that I can't get him to completely understand. I'm pretty sure I can't get any "one" person to actually get it, so it's good to be in this group and feel like there…"

Erika Cook replied to Wendy's discussion 'Get the ball rolling' in the group Depression/ Bipolar Support
"David, I am seeing a therapist who helps me find strategies to get past the dark or anxious moments that I have, but the part that has helped me the most is the right combination of meds to get my brain chemistry in balance. Have you tried…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"Jay, you are so right! It's one of the most difficult things to explain to people who have never experienced it. In my case, some minor anxiety will happen (say...I forgot to buy the milk so I have to go back to the store) and, while the…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"I understand that melatonin can be a problem if taken for very long. Maybe "ObamaCare" will come through for you, Dan; you really need a doc."
Dec 20, 2009
Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"See your doc. Are your meds causing it? Could clonazepam help (it's not a sleeping pill...just makes a busy mind more open to sleep)?"
Dec 20, 2009
Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"Hey there, Dan. What do you do when you can't sleep? Is the insomnia a side effect of meds? When I first added wellbutrin to my lexapro, my therapist (not my doctor) told me that it could make it impossible to sleep. Same doc has perscribed…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"Just went to JCP yesterday with my daughter...she wants your ripped purple and ripped black skinny jeans (the ones with silver...she wouldn't be caught dead in anything pink). So, Yeah, I can work up some envy on that one. I'm back to work…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"I'm glad to see you here Sari! Thanks for joining...and don't worry about your English; it's great. Besides, if you make mistakes, remember, there are those on this page who could use a smile! I'm grateful that I don't have…"

Erika Cook commented on Dan's group 'Depression/ Bipolar Support'
"Wow! Thanks Michael! Your story does the job of helping me understand how bipolar is different from what I have and makes me glad that I started meds right after diagnosis (with a good doctor). At the same time, however, my perspective of your story…"

Why you left your religion.
Too much hypocricy by the crowd, not enough acceptance of differences, to rigid a God figure and then in the end...I don't believe in Santa or the Easter Bunny any longer either.
