Just keeping y'all updated  
Saw Nancy Davis this morning. Agreed that cognitively, I'm managing really well. Neurochemically, something needs to change. Have follow-up appointment tomorrow morning with her practice's psych nurse practitioner to discuss changes in meds. Need to research possible new med, Lamictal. Supposed to be very very good for resistant depression, but has a risky side effect that requires transitioning very slowly and with lots of monitoring.

Be careful!
Hope you find something that works!

Just be careful.

What's the word on your Las Vegas trip? (she asks to change the subject) ;)

I will arrive in Las Vegas at 2:48 p.m. on Saturday, June 21, and will depart at 10:45 on Wednesday, June 25. I have no idea what the convention schedule is like; there's almost no information posted. This is completely unlikely IAAP!

Okay! Quick check of flight times.....
Um..fly in on the 22nd, leave 23rd, cost $126.50. Fly up on the 24th, leave same, cost $110.50. I'll need to talk to My Husband. But I'm going to try!

Just so you know: that you are even *considering* flying to Las Vegas to have lunch or dinner with me makes me very, very happy.

Best wishes on the route to Better Living Through Chemistry. And thanks for keeping us posted; I haven't been commenting (anywhere) much lately, but I've been thinking of you.

In completely, 100% unrelated news, I consistently misread the opening of this entry as "Saw Nancy Drew this morning."

I definetely hope this works for you, and I'm thinking of you.

I've been taking Lamictal for about eight months. It's supposed to help stabilize my moods and it does seem to work some, in conjunction with other meds. It also helps me focus a little more. You might find that aspect useful. I hope you feel better.

I hope you find something that works, and I hope the transition goes as well as possible.
