    So it Took me Like 10 Minutes to Find This Post. That’s every day even on gabapentin. Even if you just read this for the shorts story which I’ll tell now because I talk too much. I’m just coming out of mania. So forgive me.

    Long story short is that recreational use of LSD when I was younger caused me to be bipolar. I took a good lesson 10 times I never had a good time on it and I was always searching for the good trip. You know.

    I Have Been on the Gabapentin Ever Since I Was Diagnosed Bipolar One Seven Years Ago. For Seven Years This Drug Has Kept me Alive. Without it I am Gone. Being Manic is Like Acid, LSD. It’s Like Being on a Bad Trip But Instead of Like Eight Hours It’s Two Weeks. I Gamble I Spent All my Money it’s Happened Twice. It’s The Toughest Thing Anyone Has to Deal With And It’s a Huge Biggest Problem in the Country Today. Everyone in Prison is Manic And Yeah. It’s Crazy How You Think that you Are crazy when you really are but crazy stuff happens. Like when you’re manic you meet other people that are manic just like on acid that connection is and it blew my mind but gabapentin helps me find it.

    Thank You For Your Sympathy For my Condition But Yeah It’s OK It’s my Own Fault. This is The One Drug That I Have Been on Since This First Happened Seven Years Ago. I Have Been to The Same Clinic For Seven Years And Seen Over 10 Different Doctors or Nurse Practitioners But it Was Just to Write me a Script. Nobody Cares. The Place is a Joke. Without Health Insurance Though It’s Rough ...They have tried other stuff, wood with my gabapentin legs with you on Miami Boulevard and me I can’t even name them all there were so many. And so many bad reactions, Haldol in particular. Seven years of trying different combos and the whole time I think I just need gabapentin and I don’t know a sleeping pill or Xanax or something. Something for the headache. The headache that never goes away.

      Good to hear that Gaba is good for something. Regarding price; I live in Thailand, and I pay 34 us for 100 tabs of 300 mg generic. As good as Nevrontin. Unfortunately, I can not mention the brand name here.

      If I went back to Norway, the government would pay 100% of all medication used on a regular basis. Regardless of your age.

    John, I have not even heard of those 2 drugs, I assume. I am gonna research them. Thanks. So I’m a try to tell the story and it’s probably never going to be finished. I’m not telling you for anybody and any positive comments or appreciated any negative I can ignore with the greatest of ease.

    I’m going to try to tell this but it is only for myself. I’m afraid someday I won’t remember them saying that maybe I can look back and this will refresh my memory. Which is fine because I don’t need to be thinking every day about the same damn things. The story has police and guns and drugs and sex and a lot more. It Involves Three Special Girls One Great Family And a Whole Lot of Craziness. The crazy thing is it’s the truth and it’s my life. Part of my story even made it to CNN. Google Pet Deer Shot in Bloomingdale...(that’s not a pic of me.. there’s a little arrow on his pic. Click it.. Da Bears!) This is going to take me a while so. I’m just telling myself this. I can clear my head of any thought at any time because of gabapentin.
