Hi all, finally jumping in here. BP2, anxiety, PTSD, and mild OCD. 200 Lamictal, 10 Lexapro, Xanax and Ambien as needed.
I embrace the word crazy. I work full time, but I'm not "out" at work. I can usually disguise the hypomania as productivity. I like to think of it as "using my powers for good." Haha. Until I am so hypomanic that I just glue myself to my computer and don't talk to anyone because I sound too crazy.
My sister and my husband know but aside from them and my medical professionals that's pretty much it. Sometimes that makes me lonely.
Just coming down off a hypomanic episode. That's what inspired me to finally join and speak.
Hello! I just wanted to know people's experiences with antidepressants and romantic love for someone. I know they can affect libido but I was concerned about how you feel for someone.
I was just started on Zoloft about 2 weeks ago and was very concerned on this topic because of personal reasons. Basically, me and someone that means the world to me split because we need to work on ourselves. He still cares and sportively comes over each week and there is hope for the future. But I get worried that this drug will mess with that and eat feelings and destroy it. I don't want that to happen. Some people claim that it doesn't and then (while I know maybe I shouldn't, I still do) I look to the internet for reassurance and get scared, especially about Zoloft.
Any experiences? Does it blunt emotions? Or helps because you feel better? Good or bad because I'm searching for truth so I can decide if I want to take another approach because dang I love him and I don't want this person medicated out of my life. <:(
Soo I have bpd an bipolar as well as GAD and I found kind of. Road block I can't speak about the future with out having a panic attack .. like a full blown crying ,screaming disassociating panic attack . Like I can't think of what could happen in the future I can't think of the negative outcomes of stuff an it really bothers my husband ... so I wanna know some tips on how to open more an tolerate this types of talks
Day two of a hypomanic episode and idk how much longer I can deal with it. On top of that I got into a fight with a friend that ended with him saying that I'm dead to him. Taking tomorrow off work to see my psych but I'm worried I won't get in. Have any of you called in last minute? I'm worried about that more than anything. I know I'll deeply regret burning another bridge but right now I just want to focus on feeling better.
