Hello Everyone, I'm new to the board and after looking high and low for one I hope this is the right one. Over the past ten years I have lost my mother to breast cancer and brother to drugs. Lucky enough I have a beautiful wife though and an amazingly supportive father and in-laws. The reason I am writing is due to my mania and the struggles I am having reeling it in. I found my current psychiatrist with the help of my insurance company because everyone was not taking new patients, retired, etc... After a few visits it became more apparent that my doctor is turning into a minute clinic. By no means do I expect her to provide therapy but I do expect to her to listen to my issues because those relate to how the meds are working. Instead, she cuts down of the dose of this and increases that etc... My biggest issue right now is my mania. It leaves my wife at a loss for words. I can go two weeks absolutely wired. I don't go out gambling, go on shopping sprees, or buy expensive things but I do make grand plans for something that may be months in advance that are unrealistic until I finally realize I'm not making sense and my mood comes crashing down. This happens over and over. I try to explain this is the simplest of terms to my doctor and I get dead air back. I'm reaching out for hope because I don't know what else to reach for. Thanks for reading.
