Duelist Posted June 16, 2009 Share Posted June 16, 2009 So I am a 40 year-old mom of a 12 year old with autism and seizure disorder. I have been lurking awhile and just decided to take the plunge and jumped in. I hate being bipolar II and having anxiety along with PSTD from a motorcycle accident close to twenty years ago. I nearly died and struggle to get through each day. It was worse earlier this year when my insurance (med part D) stopped covering my abilify and I had to go through a med trial on another med and since I had already tried Risperdal and failed due to side effects on it, one more med trial was all I needed and trial it was. Man I know some people swear by Seroquel but it did little for my racing thoughts and anxieties/mental stressors whereas the abilify does. It's been a life saver for me, I also take lorazepam as needed and the new pdoc, (yup had to go through that too this year-stunk but therapists and doctors move around just like anyone else does) wants me off the lorazepam and rx'd Buspar. So hopefully it'll work for me. I post on a couple other support boards but I feel I needed to post here too. I like the atmosphere and the people all seem very kind and knowledgable. You guys are GREAT! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
