Im going through the worst of bi polar type 2, im 19 and want to start living my life but i cant, ive recently got the diagnosis, a couple months ago, ive known my whole life something wasnt right, im out of school, out of work now, im just in a lot of pain trying to get my mood stable, im taking seroquel xr 300mg a night, it sucks because i just want to be stable already, ive never really felt like i was normal..never had a chance to build my confidence or had a chance to become whole individual, i need to know if theres anyone out there with the same thing who can help me get through this

There are alot of great people here who will definalty help you get through this. I just recently joined and they are a wealth of information. knowledge, and support. I understand about the wanting to be stable thing. I went along time with the wrong diagnosis so I feel like I have been trying to get better forever. I also am not working like you which makes things hard because you don't feel like you have a purpose in life. Coming on here helps me though when I am having a hard time. Reading the posts of others....seeing I am not alone or weird maybe it will help you too. I hope your meds work for you and you get the stability you crave soon Smile

It sounds like you might need another med to help you be stable like a mood stabilizer (ie lamictal, lithium, deprakote, or others) or you might (also) need an antidepressant. It's really a conversation to have with your pdoc and you need to tell him how you feel. It's so hard to be on the med-go-round and have patience to see if certain meds work or not. I journal a lot to help me express how I feel and to record discussions I have had with my pdoc and tdoc. I also chart my moods, which also helps, so I know my ups and downs. I can print it out and show my pdoc how I have been feeling. It really helps him to make better decisions with me.
