Waiting for Sunshine

Recommended Posts

Hello!  My name is Heather,  I have been diagnosed Bipolar since 1996.  Have been on all sorts of different meds.  Have been off of meds for periods as well.  I was on Neurontin and it made me high, so I quit taking it, a 3 month supply lasted me 2 years.  Which caused me to hate myself and fall into a deep dark depression.  I attempted Suicide a year ago in August.  Overdosed on sleeping pills, my hubby is jealous because with all I took it just made me a little drowsy.  He takes 1 and he is out like a light.  Any how I was put in partial hospitalization which made me realize this is a disease and I needed help and the fact that my disease wasn't going anywhere and was here to stay.  So since then I have been in regular therapy and have had regular (once a month) visits with my pdoc.  I had a pdoc who wanted to see me only every 3 months and I wasn't stable yet, so I found a different pdoc who has been amazing.  We are still tweaking medications to figure out what will be the right combo for me.  Bipolar runs in my family both parents, 2 sisters and 1 brother all have it.  I have 2 "normal" brothers as well.
