LOL! Dr. Jeklyll/Mr. Hyde thats a new one for me.
I finally get it, too, being off meds and taking them... guess 3 time's a charm, though it could be 4 or 6 by now, lol... either way, I'm starting a tracker and doing research... like I said in a different post, this illness isn't going away so I may as well stop avoiding it :P I also have BP(1) and it's a pain in my neck to try and control this beast... considering how much of a control freak I am, too, LOL, it frustrates me when I'm losing... gotta put Mr Hyde away and get Dr Jekyll back ;)
Yes! I begining to understand the difference with and with-out medication. Im back on anti-depression and have an appointment with my Psy. for BP medication. Thank u for your understanding regarding the family issues.
you're not the first person to stop their meds b/c they thought they were "cured" or that things were OK now and didn't need them... I'm guilty of it myself more than once... you HAVE to remember that when the meds work, THEY WORK!! so please keep taking them unless your pdoc says other-wise
I'm sorry to hear about your hard times and your Hubby's family - I can relate to that one
Thank u so much for your input. I am strongly thinking about medication. I also started doing Yoga. It helps
Stress can worsen anything in a person's life but if you are more stable on medication it would probably be worth it to start it again. Best to speak to a psychiatrist and psychologist as well. A person can easily stabilize on medication and feel that they don't need it because they forget what it was like before they started it. It has happenned to me as well as many people here.
