she put me on lamictal!!!

i'm started on 25 mg 1x per day for 2 wx and then going to 50 mg 1x per day for 2 wx until we find the right dosage for me.

i'm so happy...and relieved...and hoping this works. she feels i have PTSD (probably from my LIFE up til now...!) as well as bipolar but she isn't sure yet what type in the whole bipolar spectrum...she also sees some anxiety and of course the depression but that goes w/ the bipolar. she said ADD is a toughie as there are so many similaraties to bipolar.

so yeah...i really like her. i feel like she gets me and i was floored when she was totally cool putting me on lamictal while nursing!!! :

i can tell she realllllly knows her stuff as far as mental health goes. that is her focus...

hopefully i won't get the rash and hopefully i will feel better w/ this stuff.

that's my update for now...i'll keep you posted on how i feel in the next week...
