Very manic yesterday


Recommended Posts

I was so up yesterday that I was borderline severe I think. I had a tupperware party to do last night and of course I hadn't done anything to plan for the party at all this whole week. So I had to do it all yesterday. I was getting overwhelmed and I kept forgetting what I was supposed to be doing. even though I wrote it all down. I still didn't get it all done and I wasn't completely prepared when I went to the party. My friend was the host and she is one of the few that knows I am bipolar and at the end of the night I told her I was really manic. she said, "I know, I wanted to slap you a couple of times" (love taps of course, LOL). I was going to tell her that if I got too hyper to pull me aside and let me know because most of the time I don't realize it. But I didn't tell her and some of our other friends noticed that I was "wired". I had been up since 5:30 that morning and the party started at 4:00 and I didn't get a nap and the part lasted until 9 p.m. So that was a long party. But in the end it was well worth it. It was the biggest party I have ever had. I don't want to say how much yet because I don't want to jinx it, lol. I still haven't gotten all the orders in yet either. So I am happy that more orders are going to come in.

But today, I am sort of down and I have had a migraine all day that won't go away. I guess I am crashing from yesterday. I don't know. I know there are meds when you are anxious and depressed that will kind of help you 'in the moment'. But will those same medicines help when you are manic that won't make you feel stoned? Something that I can ask my pdoc about? I really needed something to bring me down a few notches last night. I got home at 10 last night (it took me an hour to get home because of traffic) but I didn't go to sleep until 1 a.m.

So, that was my day yesterday. Today I have been kind of blah and dragging my feet. but I thought I would catch up on the board before going to bed. Catch ya'll later.

If you are manic and need to get it under control there are meds like Zyprexa etc that will act fairly rapidly (if you can tolerate Zyprexa - I can't it seems)... I would mention Seroquel also but that one kicked me from borderline mania straight into severe depression (I'm assuming because it made so sedated that I slept heaps, which screwed my circadian rhythms and triggered it - thats my guess), which wasn't quite the idea I had in mind.

Other than that "quick fix" method, probably review and possible augmentation of your mood stabilisers might be the way to go...

but thats just my thoughts - I'm no pdoc.

Well, if I took something that would knock me off my ass, I wouldn't have been able to finish my party and wouldn't have been good, lol. and I definately wouldn't have been able to drive home. I liked xanax when I was taking that but that made me stoned basically. So I will mention zyprexa to my pdoc and see what she says.
