Anyone up to exchanging Facebook info? I want to chat with people, but this website sucks chunks. Message me if you're interested.

Symptoms:
-Constant and debilitating head pressure (temples, sometimes sinus)
-Constant and debilitating brain fog/impaired cognition/memory loss (inability to concentrate, can't find words, forget where I am or what I'm doing)
-Insomnia (I didn't sleep for three days straight)
-Complete personality change (cry all the time, numbness, can't connect to others, inability to feel joy)
-Light/sound sensitivity
-Distorted perception of time
-Agoraphobic tendencies
-Obsessive thoughts (hypochondriasis/constantly Googling symptoms and self-diagnosing, suicidal ideations)
-Lightheadedness
-Lagging Vision/High Vision
-Oral thrush/rash (I think this is from antibiotics, but my doc put me on Fluconazole (Generic: Diflucan--an antifungal). This, of course, sent me down the candida rabbit hole)

Medication:
I was on Lamotrigine (Generic: Lamictal) at the beginning of the month, but it gave me a weirdass flaky-face-skin reaction, so my psych said to stop it. He put me on Mirtazapine (Generic: Remeron) instead, which I've been on before. I know that DPDR forums speak highly of Lamotrigine, so I was bummed to stop taking it. He put me on Lamotrigine for the DPDR, but also for my head pain as its an anti-epileptic. He put me on Mirtazapine to treat my relentless insomnia, depression, and lack of appetite. I can't tell if my obsessive and suicidal thoughts have increased or plateaued; it's hard to quantify.

It's good to communicate with someone understanding you ..but not always ..sometimes they will keep complaining about the symptoms that they feels and that will make you feel worst ..so be careful and do not add anyone ..good luck

I have all them symptoms or had that one, the insomnia is strange one, starting to think my sleep problem might be anxiety related (i didn't sleep at all for 10 and had to be given really heavy medication, zolplicones or mirtazapine can't make me sleep). Don't get the oral thrush one right enough, nor heard that being DP thing, so maybe it isn't...

I have to agree with Ezio. You can drop me a message for sure when you are really low, but staying in the cycle doesn't help and when the other person is anxious, it just creates a kinda anxious loop... although i bet you are longing for someone to connect with this, ideally it would be someone past all this, that way you don't trigger each other or just someone outside of it, a phycologist is good just to get thoughts out... but as i said you can PM me.

Oh and i am starting Mirtazapine again, took 3 months last time but felt massive improvement, lamotrigine didn't react with me either
