  1. I'm going to try calling back after a couple days and bug him. We'll see. Otherwise I'm definitely getting a second opinion.
  2. Yeah, I should have been more specific. He's prescribing.
  3. I've never been diagnosed with bipolar. I had all my levels checked recently and was in the clear. :/
  4. True, maybe that's it. Who knows. I will try calling in a few days. Maybe I just need to bug him about it until he changes his mind.
  5. Thanks, guys. I wasn't sure whether to just believe him or what, honestly. He's never been dismissive before this. He's usually very on top of my symptoms. I even said, "it's very unlike me." BLARGH. Maybe he was uncomfortable talking about it? In which case, big-time eyeroll.
  6. So I talked to my shrink this morning about the hypersexuality and possible hypomania- he said, 1) the Abilify dose I'm on wouldn't let me become manic; 2) I'm 27 and am supposed to have a high sex drive. I was just depressed for a really long time, and now I have to get used to my un-depressed self. I told him it's bothering me so much that it's making it difficult to concentrate at work, etc., and he gave me the same answer. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK. I don't get it.

  8. So I'm still dealing with the hypomania symptoms. They've quieted a bit since I got my period yesterday, as that makes me REALLY fatigued and crampy. So, I've been irritable. I yelled at my husband over practically nothing yesterday. Ugh. I feel like a jerk.
  9. Eh, I tried last night, but I straight-up couldn't go to sleep until 2:30 or 3. I was up, tried going to bed, laid there staring at the ceiling, gave up and went back to the living room. I had to be up at 8. *facepalm*
  10. Ugh, not really. Every time i wake up to pee I'm wide awake for like two hours. No more liquids I guess?
  11. Still feeling especially perky. Distractible. Uber creative. Super self esteem. Loads of energy. Excited about EVERYTHING EVER.
  12. Yeah, he's "been getting a lot of calls and is booked solid next week". Guess I should've called sooner.
