Introduction. . . hmm. . . well, live outside of Pittsburgh area, work for small college, openly gay with long term partner and 9 year old daughter, two annoying cats I'd prefer we didn't have (rather have a Rottweiler, frankly). Middle aged but feeling a lot older these days.

Struggled with mental health crap all my life but finally diagnosed with Bipolar I and started on lihium while taking me off all my other meds (Lexapro 30mg, Wellbutrin 300mg, Xanax, 0.5 mg).

Just completed my second full week on lithium and coming off of SSRI's and xanax. Looking to read about others' experiences with bipolar and I guess share my own.

Here's a picture of Little Edie, just for the hell of it. Enjoy.


DX: Bipolar I

RX: Lithium 600 mg, Lexapro 30mg, Wellbutrin 300mg, Xanax, 0.5 mg, Edluar 10mg

Previous RX: Every SSRI known to man. . . literally. Klonopin, Valium,
