Stories with happy chapters are ALWAYS welcome! And Chuckels...no amount of medication can make my husband handle a houseful of chaos without being triggered. It would be ATIVAN time if he had to do that!
But what I really wanted to congratulate you on, and put out there for everybody who might be reading the board but not posting is your INSISTENCE that the pdoc hear about what was going on and CONSIDER a med adjustment. I am not dissing nurses AT ALL. Many times, many people here have found the nurses to be most receptive to our concerns. But in this case, it sounds like the nurse was in a "Well, sometimes they don't ever get back to normal" mode...(Oh. That's right. She actually said that! I have seen quite a few pdocs say that to people since I have been a member at MDJ!)...but you persisted.
It might some day be the case with your BF or my husband or someone else....that there is no returning from the last episode. But, %^^@# it, that day better come after everything has been tried!!!!
Six days of even keeled sailing after the rocky seas you have been riding....must seem like heaven!
Thanks for the great news! And PERSISTENCE and PUSHINESS is often really necessary in the mental health care system today.
I agree wholeheartedly. If I hadn't argued my point with CL, he never would have taken away the seroquel that was making my husband groggy and irritable and given him risperdol instead! I had to fight to make him listen!!
I don't think I, personally, have gone 6 days without getting in a mood! That is great, chuckels! Enjoy this time of smooth sailing, it is a much needed break for both of you. Hopefully, it won't be a break, but the norm with negative moods being the exception to the rule.
