  1. Thanks for the book recommendation, I'm definitely going to check that out. Sounds like you and I deal with a lot of the same issues.
  2. I'm off the Latuda as of Sunday, I tapered down over the course of a few weeks. I felt a lot of anxiety during the downgrade but I'm better now. Today my Dr. added Gabapentin to my cocktail so I'm hoping this works. Still on the Vraylar, still battling the mid-day urge to nap. I'm going to stick it out because despite the sleepiness I do seem to be feeling better.
  3. OMG this is me EXACTLY. This is what I've been going through for weeks, although it's starting to lift. I'm sorry you go through this. Hang in there. You're definitely not alone. Ugh yes, I can relate to the vengeance thing too, especially with my boss, who is the bane of my existence. He is so toxic to me that I'm sure the universe put him in my path for a reason, I just can't figure out what.
  4. I just started Gabapentin today, so I'll keep you posted..... starting at 300 for 3 days then 600. That's me, too, except for the severe insomnia. After menopause my sleep has just generally sucked so I just take melatonin and it works for me.
  5. I guess it’s been the same for me too, I never thought of it that way. I should bring that up in therapy although we’ve already got a full plate...
  6. I’m recovering too. I also think my oversensitivity is in part due to my upbringing; my childhood was weird and my father’s anger issues and alcoholism really affected me. You’re not rambling! I appreciate your reply!
  7. I think it’s much worse for me when I’m depressed too. Good luck with the new job!
  8. My anxiety isn’t acute, like an actual attack. It comes on when I’m depressed and lasts weeks. I worry about everything... deeply, profoundly, and it worsens my depression. I feel a primal fear and dread of the future. And I feel like someone is sitting on my chest.
  9. I’m glad to hear that in a weird way. Glad to know it’s just part of my depression and may go away or at least lessen if I get better.
  10. I've been put on all 3 of these. Depakote caused hair loss and made me an apathetic zombie. Lithium caused raging anxiety. I just started Vraylar and so far, I love it. It's helping me with ruminating/obsessing and depression & anxiety. Good luck, I hope it helps you.
  11. I work f/t. I’m newly sober and have lost my standing and reputation at work due to years of hangovers and poor attendance, but so far I’m still there.
  12. That makes sense to me... it's exactly what I'm going through. Dealing with a depression and ruminating, obsessing, convinced everyone is out to get me and everything everyone does is some slight against me. Thanks for replying.
  13. I’ve always struggled with oversensitivity, feeling slighted by the most innocuous things on a routine basis. Does anyone else with BP experience this? Editing to add: For example, I feel really left out at work because I don’t get along very well with my boss. We were equals for years and he’s a narcissistic, undermining prick. He leaves me out of things that I used to be a part of when I had a different boss. So I’m understandably feeling left out. However- it becomes an obsession which I ruminate about, but I understand that’s an entirely separate issue. My point is that I feel the slight very deeply; it even makes me lightheaded. Can anyone relate to this? It affects how I feel about myself and life and it sucks.
  14. I've read that it can do that. I've read great things about it, actually.
