  1. There are 4 different brands of hormonal IUDs, and one brand of non-hormonal IUD.... Here's a pretty good article comparing all the brands: https://www.bedsider.org/features/1277-mirena-liletta-kyleena-skyla-paragard-a-guide-to-figuring-out-which-iud-is-right-for-you?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIj8blr9-25gIVJ4FaBR0c-ARyEAAYAiAAEgLb7_D_BwE Many moons ago, after my daughter was born, I decided I couldn't handle more than 2 kids, so I got the copper (Paraguard) IUD placed, simply because it lasted the longest (10 years!!).........I had to pay out of pocket for it, but it was one of the best investments I ever made....LOL...It never failed. As for placement, many gyn docs prefer to place IUDs during a period, due to the cervix being naturally more open then, although technically it can be placed at any time during your cycle.......When I got mine placed it was a bit uncomfortable, but not terrible.
  2. I hope everything goes well...makes sense to start out at a low dosage for now and see how it goes. At my doc appt for thyroid tests, I continue to test "borderline" or "subclinical" as doc likes to call it. My TSH is high, but T4, and T3 are in normal range....I guess they will continue to monitor it, but they said they are not going to medicate me for it yet.
  3. IMO, the best way to determine if he has borderline is to have him evaluated by a psychiatrist (pdoc)...If he is already being seen by a pdoc, what is their opinion? I'm happy to hear you have plans to move out, though.
  4. I'm so sorry that you're in this situation, it sounds very stressful..... Is there anywhere else you could stay? .......Maybe with another family member or friend?
  5. @mikl_pls, have you told your pdoc or therapist that you're feeling suicidal?......Please try to stay safe.....I hope you feel better soon....Please check in and let us know...
  6. If you are having thoughts and daydreams of strangling your mother (and enjoying it), you need to go to ER right away.......This is very serious....You need help right away...Please don't wait..!! Does your pdoc know you strangled 2 cats in the past?......Again, this is serious, and you need to get to a hospital--call an ambulance if you have to...Call 911 if you're in the U.S.
  7. I'm also sorry for your loss.....I have lost both my parents, and I still miss them, still grieve for them.....The grieving process is different for everyone, so please be gentle with yourself.
  8. You mentioned that you were on Latuda.... Would you feel comfortable sharing what other prescription meds you're taking now (if any)?
  9. First of all, you are not a disgusting human being....You do need a doc's help ASAP, IMO. Have you called your doc and told them what happened?....If not, I would strongly recommend it. Is there any way you can get in to see your doc sooner? Also, is there anyone (friend or family member?) who would be willing to watch your dog(s) for you until you see doc?.....If you could get someone else to watch your dog(s) until you feel more stable, that might help you from getting triggered.......Especially since you said "I'm scared some sick part of me got awaken since I want to be violent again with my dog".
  10. I'm going through this now with my gdoc, too......He suspected low thyroid because my heart rate was so low (54 bpm), and I also had pretty low blood pressure-- 92/61........Also have constant feeling of being cold, and constant fatigue. Like you, my levels are what they call "borderline"......I have appointment to get it checked again this week. According to what I read on the subject, docs can differ as to when to medicate someone who is "borderline" hypothyroid....So I don't know yet whether or not they will medicate me.....Hope I find out soon. Sorry I wasn't of much help, but hope you have a good appt on Tuesday.
  11. I have thoughts like this too.....I don't think it's abnormal at all, to think about what your tdoc's opinion about something might be.........Thinking of things you need to tell your tdoc aren't abnormal, either, IMO.
  12. A third vote for bupropion ( Wellbutrin)........I'm fairly sure it would be covered by your insurance....It's been around for quite awhile, and available as a generic.
  13. There is a medication called prazosin that is used in some cases of nightmares. I would strongly suggest letting your doc know about the nightmares, if you haven't already done so, and see what doc recommends. Here is a decent article I found about nightmares in people with bipolar disorder: https://www.verywellmind.com/does-bipolar-disorder-affect-dreams-380570
  14. Tired.....incredibly tired, depressed, anxious......Holidays are always stressful for me.
