    Evening all. How are things Maca? Congrats on the job Jo, brilliant news. I'm ticking along, going up and up on quetiapine and wondering if it might work sometime

    Yer OK thanks.
    Had abit of trouble coming off the last of the Mirt but just stuck at it and its out of my system now. At a point now where I think this is as good as its going to get so can't really complain. Have you seen much improvement DS.

    Hi guys, been a bit blippy yet again these last few days but looking at my mood journal it seems the number of good days each month is improving here’s hoping Christmas will be a merry one and not a blippy one!

    Great to keep a journal, sometimes I look back a read the early entries and its as if someone else has written it.

    My view of christmas this year is not expecting too much and looking forward to getting it out of the way.

    I've had periods of improvement and then crashes again. Damn those snakes! I'm off mirtazapine and considering weaning off venlafaxine too, but I know it's supposed to be hard to come off so might run that one past the psych. Journals are definitely a helpful way to keep track of things, and I sometimes find it useful to write down things I'm worried about and then put it down. As for Christmas, it's just coming round too soon! Glad you guys are doing ok.

    Venlafaxine has a reputation for being very difficult to discontinue. It is usually best to change to a longer half-life AD such as fluoxetine and to wean if that rather than venlafaxine directly. Or, if you want to try another AD to switch to it from venlafaxine. That shouldn't be a problem unless switching to a MAOI which is unlikely (though they often work when other ADs don't).

    Main problem is now sleep, I just don't feel rested but I am not tired in the day so must be getting sleep. So I am still getting bad dreams and sometimes wake up sweating if its a bad dream then I have to get up and sit downstairs until I have calmed down. Daytime is better but I only feel relaxed when at work, when im in the house I feel like a cadged animal and cant sit still for long.

    Guess you cant have it all perfect.

    That's difficult, sleep is so important, but as you say you must be getting some. Is there anything you could do when you're not at work to help with agitation? Walking, swimming, running etc? Might also help with sleep.
