Apr 30, 2018 · Long-term depression in Depression & Anxiety

To Posters gailb and angiegk: I'm about to accept a referral to Psychiatry for resumption of psycotropic medication having been on Prozac and Wellbutrin for decades and discontinued them last year. WHAT IS THE PROPER NAME OF THE TEST TO DETERMINE WHAT ANTIDEPRESSANTS WILL WORK BEST FOR A PERSON. I don't want to waste time on "just trying out" a drug to see if it helps (I'm 78 years old and my time is short and precious). Thanking you for any help………….Jeanne.

Dear oregongirl, Re. "not finding out what was wrong" that is – what caused your falls: My doctor attributed my two uncontiousness caused falls to SYNCOPE when the body just "winks out" momentarily. One moment I was on the phone and the next I was flat on the floor clutching the phone in a "death grip" and the other, I was watering the garden and the next moment I saw the pavement inches from my face as It approached smack down (and what a bruised chin and eye I received). In the first fall I injured my lower back irreparably and rue the day the caller, who had nothing on their mind, made that call after a sensible late night hour. I hope this is helpful…….

I'm re-visiting "Chat" on the topic of Pain from Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, and DJD conditions. Specifically, I want
members comments on their experience with the Rx GABAPENTIN (generic for Neurontin) that my doctor has prescribed for the "global" pain/discomfort/soreness I experience from these "old age" (I'm 78/female) Dx's.
The Medication Guide indicates that Gabapentin can cause some serious side effects (and I already have enough problems) that are very off-putting to beginning this medication.

I would appreciate knowing of other users experience and /or caveats on this Rx.

Mar 1, 2018 · How Loss Affects You in Mental Health

Dear shoregal45, I do grasp and apprehend your misery and deep sadness. We small sisterhood of aged single females know sorrows of which few others experience. I'm passing on a quotation that gives me comfort and perspective during my difficult moments. It is by Edward Fitzgerald {1809-1883} from The Rubdyydt of Omar Khayydm:
The Moving Finger writes: and having
writ,
Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a
Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word
of it.

In other words—our deeply comforting relationships are transitory and we mortals are hapless and miserable at their passing. We, also, must move on. There are many useful suggestions presented herein to help find wholeness again. I hope you do.

Dear Bernese53, I hope you will share the ongoing results of your SCT procedure with us. Your experience may help many to pursue this therapy instead of surgery—the results of which seem too often problematic without the anticipated success rates.

Wishing you success, Jeanne

DEAR OLDKARL, THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH about availability of Stem Cell Therapy. I’m in my late seventies and certainly old enough to benefit to some degree.
