Another copied Facebook status

Interesting... Yesterday, my neurologist was angry that my psychiatrist had put me on melatonin and an antidepressant. He told me to stop taking the melatonin immediately, and have the psychiatrist call him as soon as possible. This morning I met with a new psychiatrist (I don't know the details, but the old one no longer works there) who seemed to agree with the neurologist. He gave me a schedule to aggressively get off the antidepressant over a six-day schedule. I feel encouraged. When I started the antidepressant, I started sleeping 18 to 20 hours a day again, and my amnesia and my difficulty with focusing got significantly worse. How ironic that I look forward with such anticipation to only being as bad off as I was a couple of months ago!

I am developing a prototype resources website at http://bit.ly/resourcesfortbi. Please review my plans and make suggestions.

I welcome comments that can help make this site more helpful to those experiencing similar difficulties, or for those friends, family, and professionals who take care of bicycle injury / brain trauma.victims.

Since I want this site to be helpful to victims, I reserve the right to edit comments if they seem to conflict with that goal.

Helpful comments would include corrections of false information, references to local services that relate to my posts, or comments that help me to keep spelling, grammar, and word-choices appropriate and correct. As a brain injury victim, I depend on others to insure accuracy and to spot the kinds of errors that I may not recognize. Please feel welcome to contribute your expertise to make this site effective!
