ohai r u crzy 2?

So...  about 7 months ago my world fell apart and I went from respected IT professional to a locked ward for a week.  Turns out, undiagnosed bi-polar II and steroid inhalers are a BAD combination.  Since the "incident" it's been a bit of a roller coaster. /shock And, tbh I was only officially diagnosed as bpII about a month ago, but it feels right - yanno?  I get it now - ALL my behavior makes SO much more sense now.  Which is a relief.  This is really a thing and it's something that can be dealt with.


Just recently, I had found the perfect balance for the first time in my life.  I was steady with a general feeling of well-being.  Just good.  Not high, not low - it was amazing!  But then as we transitioned me to my maintenance meds we found a significantly negative side effect.  So I went backwards a bit.  It's extra hard because I know how I felt for that brief period and I want it back SO much.  We're ramping me up on a new medication.  /FingersCrossed I'll get back to where I was.


As I've embarked upon this unrequested journey, I've found myself landing here via google search more often than not.  These boards have been profoundly supportive for me long before I joined, and I thank you.


I'm not sure how much I'll post - as someone posted below - I'm more of a lurker.  But I wanted to pop in, both to say thank you and add my 2c to another topic.

Welcome to Crazyboards.  I'm glad our information has helped you, and feel free to lurk as much as you want.  Or post, if you have a question.  We're okay either way.


I'm going to move this to the Introduction section.


Let us know if you have any questions.
