    Hi Valerie i know is difficult and hard to adjust to medications but sometimes we need more than that friend to talk to to outside and be in nature do you have friends that can take you out it is sad that family is not carring sorry to hear that if you need to talk to someone or feel lonely you can message me i whuld like to know more about you sometimes we might just need that

    Take care of yourself try the best you can and no matter how hard can get never give up

      Hello Danielle. Thanks for yr reply of support. Brought family up on own since 22.  Sicka living at mo no friends dont get out. So much for devotion? Nausea when eaten is nuisance and dizziness which stops me doing things.  Thinking of going in home but reports are not good might be jumping from frying pan into fire. Dont know what to do with myself. Take care x

      Hello susan.  Yr side effects do seem strange and uncomfortable to say the least. Maybe theyre i terfering with system cos u r menopausal and dont suit you but cant see going down to 5 any help. Dont think i cud cope with yr symptoms. Its sickness everytime i eat with me and dizziness.  It all makes things worse.  Cant see doc till 8 june!! Think i need MORE cos dont want to live. No friends dont get out no chats and other ailments brought my family up on own since being 22. Hope yrs stabd by you. You young hang in there it early days and they say up to 8 wks to get in system. I get up and walk round bungalow to calm down. Take care x

      O dear Danielle. I do feel for you itis hard on own but your five year old must give you joy so make most of that time with her. 24, no wont understand but he adult now.  I am in UK am 72 brought up 4. My experience is that the older they and you get, the less they care. Even raised granchildren.  All too busy with own lives. Different generation i looked after my parents.  Nearly 2am getting hot milk and try to sleep tomorrow another day x
