When it's a bipolar day...


Recommended Posts

My husband will often ask what is going on with me. I have come to tell him that it is a bipolar day.

Yes, I know that there are bipolar weeks, months and years.

But day to day what helps?

I'm in the slow process of creating a Well Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) that will hopefully give me more ideas of what to do when I feel things start to go off (and will hopefully help me recognize when things are going off).

But for me, for now, the answer is to increase my Abilify. I'm on 5mg per day, with instructions from pdoc to go up to 7.5mg immediately when I feel symptomatic, then call her, and she and I can discuss going higher if needed, or if I need to see her in person, etc.

So I guess my answer is - this is a good question for your pdoc for immediate med changes that can help, and good conversation to have with tdoc, too (mine is working with me on my WRAP).
