I have been taking depakote for over a year, plus Wellbutrin. Recenlty, as in the past, my anxiety has been uncontrollable. I had a panic attack a few hours ago but was able to talk my self down. I definitely experience more hypo mania as opposed to high levels of depression or mania, however, before I was medicated I was absolutely crazy - heavy drinking, multiple sex partners and a lot of cocaine. I've been sober for 3 years.
So that's my past. Currently I have not slept more than 3 maybe 4 hours a night for nearly three weeks. At times I feel fine, energized functional , but not always. I have a very difficult time concentrating focusing and remembering especially important things. very important things. During this same time I am not feeling especially happy In any regards. Not to say I'm in Self inflicted danger, life is just blah,
One other major issue is trying to educate my loving husband as to the extent if this ailment. I know he doesn't like it, it's challenging....but I hate it too. And see now I'm crying. I hate letting him down, being a burden.
Any advices please??
