1 day ago · Nervousness and Worry in Depression & Anxiety

I like the way you think Lisa. Give the worry up to the Divine. I'm going to take this on. It may help me.

1 day ago · Quetiapine in Mental Health

What are you really asking for here? It seems like you're writing in the third person. I"m having trouble figuring out if you are letting go of Quetiapine or something else is going on. Would you be able to clear this up for me? I'm very confused about your post.

Thank you for your kind words Lisa. They do help. Staying connected with people helps in the grieving process. I'm also looking for a support group to help me. The memorial for my great niece and the comments made by her classmates and all those that loved her helped. Talking with my brother and sister-in-law who were her grandparents helped. But I think the biggest help is time. I had a very hard time with her death and it really got me down. And then we had the holidays without her. I really am looking for some coping tools to help. Crying helps too and there were times when I'd cry anywhere, in my car, in the supermarket, at my hairdressers. It would just come on. Talking really helps to but not many people I know want to talk about the death of a loved one. It's hard. Thank you for your kindness.

Thank you, Ginger. I appreciate your kind words. Grief comes in many ways. Glad you understand that. Yes, I can contact her children. Don't know if I would get response. We did spend Christmas Eve together and it was wonderful. I am keeping the door open to communication any and every way I can.

Dec 16, 2018 · The Journey of Grieving in Mental Health

Hey Liz, I'm grieving the loss of my great niece who died just a few weeks ago from cancer at the age of 21. She was a bright star in this sometimes dark world. I'm also grieving the loss of my relationship with my 50 year old daughter. For reasons I don't know, she just doesn't communicate with me. I don't know what she does or how she is or how my grandchildren are. I weep inside most of the time.

Dec 3, 2018 · Fragrances and Asthma / Allergies in Lung Health

Hi Jubilee, I, too, am extremely sensitive to fragrances and other chemical orders because of asthma. I use green products for cleaning and if I am near someone with perfume, I have to move away. And getting near someone who smokes isn't good for me either. Didn't know there was such a thing as a Risk Management Dept in a hospital. Good to know for future reference.

Teresa, thanks for your response. We did do a DNA test for meds. Effexor and Cymbalta turned up. Effexor caused my cholesterol to raise up and I had some bad side effects with Cymbalta. I was only on it for a few weeks and coming off it was very hard. I had a hard time weaning off this med. I would never take it again.
