  • i'm pretty much the most comlex case 4 psychiatrists, 3 psychologists, a nuero scientist/adult mood disorder specialised doctor, 3 gp's, 2 naturopaths and an adhd specialist have ever come accross. i'm basically a pharmacy on legs with over 32types of medications tried in 13 months including those i've mentioned above. i admitted myself into hospital (to get a team around me) for 3 weeks in the psych ward in july 2013 but was granted an agreed by patient/all the different types of doctors and nursing staff to b words) and 'what planet am i from (using a nurses exact words) because i'm soe released early as they had 'no lollies left to try' (using the head psych's exact words referring to prescription medications) anr how so rediculously med-resistant to all that could be tried. the night nurses were actually scare d of me, not by any violence or anything at all alike, but by my uncanny ability to be dosed so very very highly on so many potent medications and extreme combinations to no avail. i've had 9ver 25 blood tests, ultrasounds, brain imagery mri's, sleep disorders studies in hospital and numerous other forms of clinical testing to still be on the rollercoaster and the viscous cycle 13months later and i'm still in the same boat! it's been said way more than just a few times that i'm one hell of a case for the record books!

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • In the past 3 months I've had numerous medication changes. I never had problems with blood pressure, cholesterol or sugar. I go for blood tests every three months to see if my Synthroid needs to be adjusted and the lab does a battery of other tests also.
    Last year my blood sugar was 84 and cholesterol 181.
    In April, my blood sugar was 123 and cholesterol 215.
    Today, the results of my labs were blood sugar 124 and cholesterol 252!! I've been eating healthier than I ever have, salads, fresh veggies, fresh fruit, no white foods, low carbs, oats and other whole grains. I have not been eating sugar, I don't eat beef or pork, I've been eating salmon, and chicken or turkey if I eat meat with my meals, most of the time I don't, I get protein from beans or quinoa.
    I walk for exercise and clean houses. I don't drink or smoke. I am totally clueless as to why the test results were so bad when I was doing everything right. I also take herbs. Cinnamon, Bitter Melon and Fenugreek to lower sugar, also drinking water that Okra has been soaking in. For cholesterol, I take Cholestoff, Krill Oil (highest dosage,) and Red Yeast Rice.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I have had really bad Restless Leg Syndrome since May 2013 and with the help of the Methocarbamol it works wonders. I take 1 to 2 pills every 6 hours or as needed. I saw results within the first use. I would also like to add that it helps with pain that is localized or for pain throughout the body.

    Seroquel helped me with my sleep disorders due to my BiPolar and Anxiety issues. I originally started at 100mg at bedtime which was offering me a little relief but my physician bumped it up too 300mg at bedtime where I was getting alot more rest. My anxiety was getting really bad so it was bumped up too 600mg. My anxiety dropped, however, I was sleeping almost 16 hours a day.
