    And it was successful was there for 2 weeks. In fact I didn't want to leave heh. I felt safe there.

    I actually had a lot of suicidal thoughts about coming home again, but that's where this effexor comes in. Holy shit is it strong.

    They got me on 300mgs of it with some ativan and I feel pretty high, probably too high, I hope it balances out over the weeks.

    I think I cherished the people I got to meet in there. It was a nice group. Got phone numbers and all.

    But I just wanted to drop a line of hope that there are meds that can really help with suicidal thinking and shit. I thought I was immune in my situation but apparently not. (And my situation was bleak, I was basically waking up and doing nothing with myself, no interest in anything at all) I tried lexapro + wellbutrin then he just said effexor all the way. I'm on like day 9 of it and it's helping a lot, there are some shitty side effects like delayed orgasm, feeling hot and sweaty, but anything is better than depression/anxiety.

    One other thing I've noticed is I get wet dreams after taking it and going back to sleep. It's sweet but then I wake up and it's hell all over again.

    I can't say that I've eliminated it totally, but not being depressed about everything sure as hell helps. I just hope I don't turn out to be bipolar because I'm flying after months of being suicidal....
