Hi all @greenpea @Angels333 @saturnzoon @Doglover @Zoe7 @Hamsolo01 @Gazza75 @outlander @CheerBear @Macca00 @Shaz51 @Angels333 @Mumi @Appleblossom @Maggie @Sherry @Sans911 @Snowie @Faith-and-Hope @Adge @Exoplanet @Teej @Mazarita @Dec @cutiepiekitty @Pilgrim and anyone else around here today. Mid-week is always busy for me but I am thinking of you all and sending positive vibes for peaceful times. Warm wishes to those having a break from forumland too. too many pages for me to catch up once again, so sorry if I don't reply individually.
Yes Zoe yesterday was tai chi and then the doctor. Found out I no longer have osteoporosis!!! My bone density in certain areas has improved by as much as 15% - thanks to a combination of an HRT that has a side effect of increasing bone mineral uptake and good old calcium, magnesium and D3 supplement. So very happy about that. And last night was a flamenco night at my sil's art exhibition - mind blowingly amazing. And the sangria was good too!
Then today a trip to the beach and then an intense session with my psychologist (aren't they all for me?) - filming an EMDR session about my traumas with police and one particular event - feel like I can't really talk about it in detail even on here as it's too much of a horror story. Note - not because I broke any laws. Felt quite shaky afterwards and just rested for a few hours. Somehow we've been trauma mapping for the better part of 2 years and I hadn't mentioned to her the way they treated me after I was severely assaulted. It's no wonder I've never felt safe around them since then. Nuff said maybe. It's a huge thing for me to process and will take more than one session.
@Doglover hoping your symptoms are starting to lessen. I hate it when people say psychosomatic as if that's any less real. Feel for you and sending what support I can.
Take care all and have a restful night xx

Hi @Angels333 , thanks for your post and thinking of me. Yeh I am struggling big time. can't even begin to describe - my symptoms are just out of control. Unfortunately the normal meds they use for prn are the very meds that they are getting me off so I am having less and less of them.
They have given me a different type of prn on my chart but it has sodium in it which I'm convinced give me terrible symptoms so I really don;t want to take it.
How are you Angel? Are you doing ok atm?

Hi @saturnzoon ,
Yes I am still in hospital and going through absolute torture. They are weaning me off short term anxiety meds and it is absolute torture. I can't even begin to descibe. I'm really scared I'm not geoing to get out of this. They are putting me on more of other meds but I am getting worse and worse. Plus there's my concern that it's the inactive ingredients in these meds that are actually contributing to these symptoms, so the more meds I take, the worse I get. That's what it seems ike anyway. My head symptoms and agitation and restlessness are through the roof. I just dont know what to do with myself.
Thank you for keeping me in your prayers Saturnzoon, I really appreciate it.
Sorry if theres lots of typos, I cant go back and correct them coz I can't get the curser to go where I want it to go on my phone.
How are you doing Saturnzoon? I hope you are doing well. Take care.
