I am glad you are keeping a positive attitude. I am doing the same as best I can but I had been craving over the last week. Some days it was everything I could do to get out of my head but I emerged on the other side of it clean. I have 47 days now. I am getting paid tomorrow and am a little worried about that because I have been broke during all of my re...

It sounds like the story of my life too. I can say however that it has slowed down for me to the point that I don't fully push people away any longer. I may get angry at times or isolate but I will still try to maintain contact with the people who are important in my life. Like Pamela said it is a process that starts with a lot of practicing and "...

Medication changes are necessary for you to find a balance. I hope your dr is giving the medications ample time to see the effect of them before changing them.

I do not always crash into depression but as you know it is likely to come after the mania. When I am trying to fight the mania (other than taking my meds) I also try to slow down myself and meditate. I have not had a manic spell in about a month. I usually write a lot when I am manic and try to avoid negative people because of the quick temper. Allow i...

I have struggled with my diagnosis for the last three years but am getting better at managing it and am becoming more social. I have been to treatment several times and every time except for this last time I stayed to myself. I know it stinks when bipolar is the main thing on your mind and it is blamed for every right or wrong thing in your life. I have ty...

Of course it would be good to talk to a counselor if you have time. It is likely some temporary anxiety due to what all you have going on. The best thing to do is to take control over what you do have. I like to think of anxiety being related to future worries while depression is often due to past issues. Keep your guard up to keep the things that other p...

I think that you are doing the right thing at this time by avoiding him. I am not saying he is a bad guy bud he did do some harmful things to you and you have nothing to gain from talking to him again unless you are truly looking for closure. You are showing your strength and it should feel good to do that. Don't take a step back and let him into your...

I hope you don't crash either. I am worried about crashing myself. I busted a vein in the gym today which means I cannot workout for 3 weeks. Exercise was a big part of my recovery plan and it had been making me feel good. Now I don't know what to do but I'd better do something or risk falling back into depression.

Hello again, I hope you can find someone on here who can relate but it is going to be difficult. I would advise posting this in the Depression : Support for Families forum and if you don't get the exact answer you are looking for perhaps you may get the support you want. That being said that forum can run a little dead sometimes so keep checking it an...
