Suzi- have you thought about organizing a practice yourself? When that happened to my daughters team, a few parants found out that after the coach agreed to coach he got a new job and could only do games so a couple of us parents took over and if the original coach could be there fine if not we handled it.

ITK, I take anti-depressants and mood stabilizers and there was a period of time when I felt "flat" - not able to feel happy or sad and no, this is NOT good or normal. You should not go without the medication, but you should go to the doctor and ask if your dose can be altered or try a different medication. Anti-depressants should bring you to normal moods but some can make you over medicated which then causes lack of emotion. If this doctor won't help, see if you can go to another.

How long have you been taking this particular medication? Have you had time to adjust to it? Have you been taking it regularly?

James said his just takes the edge off his emotions, but it doesn't wipe the emotions away altogether. I would find out about changing medications or at least the strength of the one you are taking (and a new doctor if he won't change it).

I have a friend who had the same problem on lithium and she wouldn't take it reliably because of that. It was a real issue because she is bi-polar and got into problems when she was off her meds, but felt "dead" when she took it. Finally, they have developed so many more meds that her doc was able to try a few until they found one that worked without that side effect. I would suggest that if you have been on this drug for a few months, long enough to see if it is a temporary effect, you should ask your doc to try a different medication. If he/she refuses, you might want to get a doc who is more responsive to your needs.

Thanks

I just got back from helping my brother at 2 and felt so lethargic without any ambition to get going, that I sat down. I fell asleep and just woke up now. I haven't done this in many days. This only makes me feel miserable when I didn't get my stuff done. Now have to wait till tomorrow. These pills are capsules and cannot break in half. I will ask my doctor when I see him end of month. I don't like pills that make you sleep or don't react right. Must really do something to the brain. Just found out my niece and my instructor both have to put their dogs to sleep and I have been thinking about this dog with acupuncture when it will be his time? Both these people have real feelings for their dogs as they got them when they were puppies. One is 15 other 18. That is really old. Mine is 13, was my mother's before she passed away. That is how I knew something not right when I didn't start crying. Putting dog down always tore my heart out. I'm sorry but dogs have never hurt me the way most people have. That is why hearing them having o be put down, affects me most of the time. Thanks for your time and understanding. Just sorry you all have to grieve over problems that life brings. If you have someone who sympathizes with you about pain, you are blessed. Seems most are more concerned about themselves. Even my brothers. Only when threat that I won't be here would bother them. thanks again

I take Paxil I still cry but only for a reason the doc said I will still cry because it's situational and not because of a chemical unbalance.

I am kinda in the same place In The Kitchen is, emotions are deadened and I can't really feel anything right now. Woke up late, did manage to get to the laundry mat to get some clothes done for the kids as they were out of clean clothes. Now I am back home and should start supper but haven't.... I am just tired and don't feel like doing much except sleeping or laying down.
I know it is because my sugar is high, and I am in a depressed cycle, so my mood is all over the place. One minute high as a kite, the next curled up in a ball wanting to die. I was supposed to get my meds in order again to start taking them, DW made sure I got em this morning, but I am not taking the Cymbalta at the moment and I really should be. Funny thing is when I am on it I don't think it is working, but when I go off it I suddenly realize it was. I can take it at night so I will start it tonight and hopefully DW will be there to make sure I stay on em this time...
