sat nite,,we have been in cold weather with high humidity and finding it hard to stay awake or get up any energy,i have allergies and they are getting worse, we think its because of that ICEstorm brought down so many trees that all the pollen andwhatever has been all kicked around and stirred up. and we r breathing it,,PLUS all the CHEMTRAILS up in the skyTOO!

*god i love these cats ..how can a person be so attached to animals,,2 cats,,i just dont know what id do without boo and e..they are our 'lil gifts from god.

another gift from god worth mentioning is we have invested -yep..in the stockmarket,,I KNOW-all timeLOW (buy low- sell high) we paid 18 cents a share for alot of stock in a" NEW- inovative- on the horizon- technical thingy stuff-" its already earned us a thousand by its climb..... we were blessed with this i do believe. its going to be our blessing down the road.

first day on my new drug,,called NEUROTIN,,? i slept till 2.00pm,omg,, i walked into a wall,,(did not hurt) i am off- like" weird -off" I take one in am,,one at noon and at bedtime-
the dr said when i start to take these that i MUST pay attn, to the results,,and if any thing happens to discontinue,,he was causious when prescibing and explaining it clearly to me,,but i forgot everything he said.,,, so i dont know what im sapossed to watch out for- but so far so good,,no problems other then super drowseytime.
OK did a quick search google= wow, OK= Gabapentin for Depression, Mania and Anxiety. thats cool i guess.....ok now-NOTE: Gabapentin is only approved in the USA for the treatment of people with seizures. ((((the phamasist who filled this for me was on it for seziures - he was on HUGE dose and talked to me about it)))
OK NOW=
What are the side-effects of gabapentin?
Here is a listing of gabapentin's side effects that affected 5% or more of the 543 people taking the drug during clinical trials and the frequency of those side effects in the 378 people treated with placebo in those trials:
Adverse Reactions (%)
Adverse Reaction Gabapentin Placebo

Unsteadiness 13 6-----ME Fatigue 11 3------me
Nystagmus 8 4---huh? wha?? Tremor 7 3---nope
Double Vision 6 2-----------had that anyways.
Side-effects are most noticeable the few days after an increase in dose and then usually fade.
........OK cool ...................................................
Neurontin:
300 mg capsules / 3X daily / noprob / after looking at the info on line..im not very worried about this drug,i may bennifit,,moodwise ---lets just wait and see---

Understanding Depression
Major Depressive Disorder (Depression) is not just a temporary mood, and it's not a sign of personal weakness. Depression is a serious medical condition with a variety of symptoms. Emotional symptoms can include sadness, loss of interest in things you once enjoyed, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, restlessness, and trouble concentrating or making decisions. Physical symptoms can include fatigue, vague aches and pains, headaches, and changes in weight or sleep patterns. For some, depression can include thoughts of death or suicide.
