I'm alright. Woke up and got on the computer for a little bit. I have to work in the morning. I don't know why I woke up, probably to pee. Good, I'm glad you got your Lamictal and Neurontin raised. Hopefully that will help you with things. I think once you get between 100-200 mg on the Lamictal, you will start to notice the benefits. It usually takes 6-8 weeks to get to full effectiveness. I'm sorry you are stuck at work through the night hours.

A lot of people question their diagnosis. I never have because I remember how I felt before medications and I like the new me a lot better than the old me. People really question the diagnosis when they start to feel better on medications. There is a reason you feel better, it is the medications. Everyone needs to stay on them to remain feeling good. Stick to your medications because that's very important. So, yes, people do question if they really have bipolar. I hope your night is quiet.

At least you have your phone to keep you occupied. I would go batty with boredom. I don't have a smartphone. I'm in the dinosaur age. Smile
