  1. I have been having a hard time the past couple of months, the depression just seems to be getting worse slowly but shurly. I can't seem to get anything done during the day and lay around all day and eat. The other day I looked at my hands and they seemed like they weren't attached or someone else hands, it was weird, what could this be?
  2. Hi Anelize I feel for you as I am in pretty much the same situation. I am currently seeing my Pdoc for a change in meds and I'm hoping we can get it right soon so this depression I have will go. Do you have a Pdoc your working with? I'm thinking you might need a little adjustment in you meds. I wish you the best.
  3. That's exactly how I feel guys, time just drags by hour by hour. I guess I need to find something to take my mind off of this depression just not sure what I can do. I just need to break up the day somehow, work sounds like a good idea however when I get a job it just causes more pain. A hobby would be nice but they all cost money which is something I don't have due to the fact I can't keep a job. What a life I have, I just don't understand why I am even still living. I just go through the motions of living day by day without no meaning of why I'm here. There are only 2 people I think that would really miss me and that is just pathetic.
  4. Yes I have a Pdoc, where in the process of adjusting meds.
  5. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels like this. I actually think a lot of feel like this often. I feel so lonely, bored, and depressed, what do you do when you feel like this?? I know it's making me drink more alcohol and I know this isn't a good thing. I just feel like taking a lot of seroquil and sleeping all day and night hoping that I will wake up feeling different.
  6. I'm currently on 2mg of Adivan because 1mg no longer works for me. When 2mg stops what would the doctors do, put me on something else? If I'm put on something else for a while, how long would it take for the Adivan to start working again?
  7. When I was first put on Adivan it was 1mg dosage. I saw my Pdoc a month ago and told her that adivan wasn't working any longer. She perscribed me 2mg and told me to get back on Depakote. She said it was like putting out a fire with a fire extinguisher and not having a fire truck available (depakote). Well to say the least I am back on Depakote and 1 mg of Adivan still does nothing for me. I know you sometimes build up a tolerance for it over time if taken often. I also read somewhere not sure if it's true or not but they say if your addicted to the drug that is when your tolerance builds. 2mg works good for me like the 1mg use to work for me. I don't take adivan to often, the last time I've taken it before today was about a week a go so I don't understand what is happening here, Any ideas?
  8. I'm not one to be social and have no real good friends I don't even know where to begin to make friends with someone, I believe it's next to impossible for me. I'm feeling so lonely and mildly depressed right now and was wondering what you do when you feel like this? I feel like taking a large quantity of adivan and sleeping all day and night. I know this is the wrong thing to do but I feel bad.
  9. I think the least likely antidepressant to cause this is Wellbutrin, but you say that you don't know if it is working for you. Maybe you can ask your Doctor for a prescription for Viagra or something similar. If you can't afford it maybe they have some free samples that they can let you try. Hope things work out for you!
  10. I really don't know, it's confusing isn't it, this is why I am asking. I was just dx yesterday and I didn't really think about it until this morning when I woke up. I think I have some questions to ask her when I see her next month. What do you think I should be asking her about this dx?
  11. Well it looks like I finally got a dx of Bipolar II Mixed State, Social Phobia and Dysthymia. Am I wrong but isn't Dysthymia part of Bipolar or is it a thing of it's own?
  12. Ok so I think that I might have a mild case of ADD. When I was younger my symptoms where a lot worse, I'm not sure if it was a learning disability or ADD. Symptoms I have are, reading something and not remembering what I read, zoning out when people are talking and not being able to remember what was said, watching a movie and not remembering what it was about unless it was really good. Anyways I have some report cards from when I was young in grades 2,3,4. Here is what they say; Non satisfactory - Takes Responsibility for personal organization Non satisfactory - Works Carefully and neatly Non satisfactory - Completes Assignments in Reasonable Time Non Satisfactory - Legibility Showed some improvement in this booklet. He tends not to listen and thus needs directions repeated more than once. Is very careless when making sentences. He forgets capitals, periods, and often makes spelling errors which are unnecessary. He tends to work too quickly, and rarely goes back to recheck his work. When he slows down he can do very good work. Has some difficulty following more than one direction. He had a lot of trouble with right/left concept on the last page. Has improved in making sentences. However he is very careless in capitalization, punctuation and spelling. Did quite well in his booklet. His mistakes are often just careless ones he has a tendency to rush through his work. Does not always listen carefully thereby making careless errors. He will require more work in the listening area. He does not listen very carefully to instructions and makes careless errors as he tends to work to quickly. What do you think? I also have a Pdoc appointment tomorrow, should I bring these report cards in with me?
  13. I know that there are different levels of depression, mild, moderate and severe. How do you know what level your at for charting?
  14. Its not that I have the guts to quit its because I end up in bad shape mentally if I continue to work.
