I have mild depression, moderate anxiety (currently on Pristiq) congenital week joints, and pinched nerves in my back.
I'm currently trying to find a way to make my last 3 Pristiq tablets last until my next doctor appointment on the 3rd. Hopefully they'll give me something else, that will actually work. I've tried Pristiq, Webutrin, and Lexapro. They tend to work for a while, then just quit having any effect.
When I went to the Shriners hospital in South Carolina a few years ago, they said that I would be in a wheelchair by now. Don't know where they got that notion. I usually don't have any problem from my orthopedic issues, plus I'm double jointed. Everything has a silver lining!
I also have a tendency to obsess on one topic and learn everything about it, then move on to something else. Right now I'm on goldfish, LOL.
I'm really just a normal person. I've learned to work with or around my issues, and mostly I have a normal life. Sure, I sometimes can't go out of the house without freaking out, and I walk a bit differently than other people, but I have an IQ of 165-ish and a lot of empathy for others. My tendency to over focus on one topic can actually be an asset, and I retain most of what I read.
