|A little about me:||39 year old female married nurse with five teenagers. Diagnosed about 18 months ago but thought it was wrong diagnosis so stopped taking meds. Past six months have been the worst. Went into a manic phase and did things that i would NEVER normally do. Then went into a depression right around begining of October. Barely got off the couch, cried all the time,couldn't take care of the house or kids, didn't call anyone back,falling asleep at work, felt like I was on drugs,couldn't remember things I had done or even driving home and I was angry at everyone.I wanted to kill myself and if my husband and sister had not convinced me to get help I am positive that I would have. I ended up in the hospital for a week and I feel like a new person. I am on Risperadal,Lamictal,Topamax,Prozac, Klonopin,Seroquel only at night if needed for sleep and Vistaril only if needed for agitation. The only side effect i am experiencing is dry mouth. and its probably the first time Ive actually had a good full nights sleep in years. For the first time I feel like a person and that there is hope to be happy. I have alot to work on in counseling but I'm ready to do whatever I need to do to try to help control all these ups and downs. I know its going to be a long road but thank God I have alot of support.My husband found tis website and I think its great for both of us. Ther is so much helpful tips and info Thankyou so much. Its nice to know we're not alone|
