I've been diagnosed with Bipolar Type 2 (since September 2004).
Currently I'm on 250mg of Lamictal and 60mg of Prozac.

Catnip (tea)

Kava Kava (small amounts in tea)
Skullcap (Small amounts in tea)
combanations of all of the above

Nobody read this. It's irrelavant.


Everyone speaks of their so-called morals, as if they dictate their course of action. Honestly though... How many tymes've you wanted to do something, but failed to do so, 'cause you'd get in trouble, or you'll be fired, or you'll go to jail, etc. etc.? $#%^, with me that's the case 99% of the tyme, and from what I observe from those around me? It's the same case.
Are morals as present or even ...

Depression and Suicide

Last Thursday, January 15thm 2004, I attended a presentation of In Our Own Voices by NAMI Greater Seattle.

Jim called me on Sunday and asked for some help for his friend, another Russian man whom I'll call Tom. Jim told me that Tom suffered from depression and was having a very hard time with life. I ...
