renna Posted April 21, 2011 Share Posted April 21, 2011 I'm bipolar. I resentfully go to counseling weekly and take my meds. As I recently experienced, the meds are a BIT more vital than the counseling. My doctor phased me off of Abilify since I hadn't had any psychotic episodes, and I was fine for about 4 months until this week, when I went off the deep end. It wasn't as bad as past episodes, though, since we all recognized it early on. Normally I have a good sense of humor about it. I like to think that I'm not crazy, it's other people who are boring. And I like to think of my psych ward experience as an adventure that, hopefully, I need not repeat. Hence the weekly counseling. But right now I'm quite down about the whole thing. Aside from the fact that I'd be down anyway, I'm embarrassed and ashamed of how I acted. And there was no trigger... I just slipped away. So here I am.
