Best month since started treatment 2 years ago :)


When I started treatment two years ago I was a shaking mess. After 6 months I started feeling better.

It was not until I realized I was hyper emotional from mania from the increase in anti-depressants that really did help me not have anxiety and helped me to feel confident for the first time in my life.

No one said it would be easy, 6 months ago I started Lamictal and in that time it did make me see the mania decrease.

I was scared to have to come off Lamictal due to the rash, I am keeping really close notes on my log so I can stay on top of using my therapy tools.

In looking at my log I realized how much better I am doing. My older logs have these red wavy lines every month where I was cycling. Now I am staying in the middle.

So cool! It's really helpful for me to log my moods as well and I learn so much about myself when I do that. Sounds like you're doing very well. Congratulations!
