9 hours in the Bipolar Disorder Community - 2
Hello and welcome to the bipolar forum and the bipolar family :) The medication changes sound good. I am glad nothing was added as this is your introduction into bipolar medication and you never know, they may have got lucky and nailed this one. Honest and will are going to be your best friends and although this is something you will manage for life it is ...

This is definitely something to discuss with your dr. I cannot be sure of all of the circumstances in your treatment. What I will say is that it would likely be a bad idea to switch medicines as it would further complicate your chemicals. Talk to your dr and see if an increase would be wise at this time. There is nothing wrong with increasing your meds un...

One way of telling if someone is bipolar (in psychiatry) is to put them on SSRIs and watch to see if they become manic. That is exactly what happened in my case. There would be some other things to consider as well but I do agree that you were likely experiencing some symptoms of some acute mania. If this is the case, I am interested in seeing how you are ...

Give it some time. You are a complex person and it is going to take time and trust for any therapist to break through and get to the heart but it is possible.

I can promise you that even if you had all the money in the world you would not find life long happiness. I don't know that I can tell you anything that you have not heard already but I will try. The key to happiness is not made out of gold and it cannot be bought. It is a gift that is given in return for a service. We are what we eat but we are also...

Nothing changes until the fear of change is less than the pain of staying the same. I like that quote and I use it often. I am not a dr so I cannot recommend that you take antidepressants or you do not but I will say that if life has gotten so hard that you need them, the side effects are not going to scare you as bad as they are right now. Yes there are s...

We may call mild depression mild but it is only mild depending on how hard it affects your life. If the depression is making it to where you can no longer get out of bed then it is time to think about seeing a dr. This is if you have been depressed for a while, like weeks or months. Everyone has depression at some time. If you have ever been happy then at...

I am not judging you so I want you to feel comfortable here. Your situation is not uncommon so I don't want you to feel like you are crazy. What is likely going on is that you are not engaged in the conversations. It seems to me like you want to talk about something that no one is interested in so you talk to yourself. We all actually do it but not m...

I would follow your drs instructions for now. I have experimented with my medicines before to see what time was the perfect time but in the end, once the medicine gets in your system really good, the time that you take it really doesn't matter. You felt better for a little bit there and that was the medicine doing what it is supposed to do. Once we st...

I understand. I feel the same way and in my work I must watch out for those who have bad intentions. Do not feel that you are being judged. You can look at my history on here and see that I am only here to help. I can teach you how this site works and get you motivated to do the most you can on here. I would never turn away someone who is wanting to help...
