AngelPotPie.

Lisa thanks for the welcome. I'm not sure how to go about introducing myself to the group, so I'll begin here. I'm Diana, a wife of 35 years, and mother of 2 sons, ages 20 and 30. I was diagnosed as bipolar 2, with OCD, about 10 years ago. I have a great doctor, who has worked with me to find the right meds for me...Abilify, Sertraline, Levoxthyril,Oxcarbezepine, and Terezpam, for sleep. I've struggled with risky behavior a lot, and am still working on that in counselling. My marriage was bad for years, because I was allowing my husband to control and abuse me, emotionally and verbally. I learned to set boundaries of respect, and my doctor put him on Lexapro, which helped his anger problem. I am thankful to God for my new life. If you could post this as my introduction to the group, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Lisa!

Hi Diana! It's great that you have such a great psychiatrist and your medications are working for you. Learning boundaries of respect is very good. No one should be abused and controlled. I'm glad you are working through this. I'm happy for your new life. Counseling does great things. I'm glad you joined. You will get a lot of support here from super friendly people that will help you in any way we can. Welcome to the group!!

AngelPotPie, it's great that you are here. I'm sorry you had to go through a rough time there for a while. Finding the right med combination can take some time. I hope this works for you for a long time. It's fantastic to have you part of the group!
