About Me



I have a free-spirited nature.

Time and experience have taught me well.

I am proud of what I have evolved into. I have one outstanding feature: My good character. I draw upon this inner strength during times of adversity. This practice has induced self-reliance and the ability to resolve issues within me.

I am relieved that my temperament flourished despite untimely circumstances. As a result, I am an uncommonly humble woman and an undeniable authenticity defines my spirit.

I have decided to be utterly transparent concerning my peers. I am inclined to portray myself as candid, open, honest and upfront.

I’m not aggressive and generally don’t initiate friendships. I allow others to establish their boundaries (boundaries are a weak area for me so this is a future blog topic).

People who have problems are naturally drawn to me. I’m not sure if they sense compassion or understanding. Maybe they recognize genuine concern. It’s presumably a variety of factors. Anyway, I appreciate everyone who comes into my life. I love helping people. I am so happy when my friend makes better decisions because of one of our talks. I like reasoning with people and giving them options.

I have fun reading and commenting on everyone’s blogs. There are so many interesting people. I’ve enjoyed who I have met so far and I look forward to future ongoing interactions.

  8. Hi. It’s the Stone Temple Pilots girl. Guess what? I’m on Brintellix two tabs a week at night and wellbutrin. I’m also on Adderall. It’s hard not to get judged for it. I take less Adderall than prescribed but it’s still a hassle. My pharmacy of 15 years fired me when I started taking it. It also helps with binge eating, a consequence of mood stabilizing atypical antipsychotics. From atypicals, I got Tardive Dyskinesia, an orphan disease now affecting 200k people in the states, With the rash of prescrips for Abilify, Latuda, Saphris, Invega et al, and Abilify at one point being the number one prescribed drug in the country, we’ll see a bunch more cases. My Tardive Dyskinesia advocacy is in the form of two vlogs (videos) on International bipolar Disorders youtube channel. They are: Tardive Dyskinesia Part One (symptoms causes, statistics) and Part two: getting treatment. The syndrome is way more common than people think, because previously, it only happened to people with schizo concerns, a population well medicated and often silent and shut in to their ALF”s. Now, however, it’s happening to bipolar patients, and neurologists who specialize in movement disorders (MS, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s Disease) are less than thrilled to see mentally ill patients with Tardive Dyskinesia walk through the door. It took me three years of not being able to sleep or sign my name before we found a movement disorder clinic specializing in TD and medicine to stop the shakes. Sorry so longwinded, I’m just doing my thing. Many people who are given antipsychotics can get by on much lower doses and that delays or prevents this neurological problem from developing. Allison
