Hedea Posted October 18, 2011 Share Posted October 18, 2011 Hi there. I have a blog over at CrazyMeds, and just recently found out about CB. All I can say is...most excellent! (btw-- best ToS I've ever read.) Same username on CrazyMeds, although I started out there as th3vil0ne, so that may be the name to search for, I don't quite know. A bit of a bio... I've been in and out of treatment for one disorder or another for about 11 or 12 years now. That places me around the age of 11 or 12 when all of the fun began (do the math and you can deduce my current age!). It's been a most fantastic roller coaster since then. I won't bother you with all of the details, but here I am now. I have a BA in Psychology, and I minored in Elementary Ed. Right now I work full-time as a community support staff for two women with developmental disorders and medical concerns, including epilepsy (which, honestly, scares the crap outta me). It's stressful and a huuge migraine trigger, but overall it's a pretty good job. i'm also a facilitator for the WRAP program, started by mary ellen copeland. google it if you aren't familiar with the program, it's pretty sweet, and has really helped me overcome some of my issues. After many changes, I hold the dx of bipolar II (mood disorder NOS is on the chart to avoid stigma, but bpII is the 'working dx' as my dr puts it), social anxiety disorder (previously could not leave the house), ADHD (or ADD, hard time keeping them straight...), migraines, and fibromyalgia. I've got a bit of a tremor from my meds, which we thought was from my lithium, but apparently other meds are causing it too (especially if I drink coffee). I just got off my lithium (wooo!) after three years. It's triggered a nice cycle of hypomania and then depression once we evened my meds out for the hypomania. Faaaantastic. Did a brief trial of Zoloft for the depression, which made my anxiety skyrocket, and distinct, debilitating panic symptoms to reoccur after a few years of remission. So we just stopped that, thank God, but I've still got til Thursday for it to be completely out of my system. Right now I'm kind of in a mixed state, so I apologize for the rambling. I can't sleep and I have 'verbal diarrhea' as one of my high school professors described it (charming, right? no wonder i'm so fucked up). Plus my anxiety is escalated, and the "I suck" monster is running rampant. so, hello, I hope I have not broken some rule, I read the ToS but my memory at the moment is extremely limited. So I don't remember much, except that it's awesome. And I'm off on another tangent.... good night~ [Edited to put some space in between paragraphs.
