novinda Posted July 22, 2005 Share Posted July 22, 2005 Hi! I just registered today. I've been reading this board for a while, so I decided to bite the bullet and just sign up. I guess I'm supposed to say something about myself? I'm BP II, just diagnosed about a year and a half ago, mostly severe depression. I've been in psychotherapy for the same amount of time. I was always a moody kid, and I don't think my parents could think of too many times that I was ever happy. Um, I had my first severe (i.e., suicidal) depression in college, then a few times after that. Now I'm on one drug (Lamictal)-- it's working, kinda, but my MD and I are working on that. I'm going to med school in the fall, which is exciting but scary at the same time. I always get more depressed when I'm under stress. I know that I'll have to get through it though, and I guess posting here will help. Hmm... what else? Well, at this point I'm gung-ho about being a research psychiatrist. I think that it's absurd that so many people-- myself included-- have to ride around on the drug rollercoaster before finding something that *kinda* works. But I'll get off the podium now. Thanks for listening to my babble. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
