Crazy Cat Lady

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I've been lurking around the boards for about 2 years now and decided to make my introduction because I'm FINALLY seeking help. Not for my cat addiction...although I do love cats. My mom has told me that I came out of the womb anxious but I've never sought help because of financial issues. Lately, my anxiety has escalated to a point where I don't recognize myself. It is 2016 and the US Government still doesn't recognize MI as LEGIT illness so I've decided to rack up some debt and get my butt to the nearest psych clinic. Intake is scheduled for October 4th.

I'm sure that you'll see me on the Anxiety boards (among others) so this is how I see myself... I am a certified geek and member of many fandoms including: Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Firefly, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, Sherlock and Harry Potter. I am also a gamer (formerly World of Warcraft, currently PS4 RPG's) and an avid viewer of online cat cams (because I love cats). I fancy myself a comedienne, although it has been hard to laugh lately. Do you know Chandler Bing? I'm pretty sure that he's my spirit animal.

I've had a pretty terrible night  and I've had some wine so I thought it might be therapeutic to make my introduction (which I've been thinking about for weeks). I'll see you guys around the crazyboards!

...Did I mention that I love cats?...

How did I leave out Harry f*ing Potter?!

I'm afraid that before we can really welcome you to CB, we're going to need to know how you feel about cats. Are you pro-cat? Cat-positive?

Welcome to CB. If you have any problems figuring out how the site works, please feel free to PM me or any of the other mods.

Welcome to the boards!  Cat-addiction is quite supported here.

I'm glad you're overcoming barriers to treatment and seeking help.

My cat arranged her butt so she could have the runs in my shoe this morning.  I love my cat...  I also want to shoot my cat but not really.   One of the greatest days this month was when I caught kitty in mid poo in the bathroom and held her over the toilet and danged if it didn't work!   Yea!  Small things like that are so great...

So on the positive...  I hosed out my shoes.  So when the cat crapped under my desk AGAIN to day at least it wasn't actually in my shoes...

I am either Mr Positive or I've totally lost it.

Cats can be complete assholes, but that's just one more thing that I love about them. I mean, wouldn't you take a dump in someone else's shoes if given the chance?

My cat is good about using the litterbox, but my mom's geriactric kitty would go wherever she pleased. She had to cover her floors with puppy pads.

      Hi, I am kitties.  I am a newbie here, but not to illness.  I have chronic pain 24/7 in my back and neck.
      Mentally....here are my diagnoses (got a second and third opinion....all objective and a consensus of the exact same diagnoses.)
      Bipolar 1 with psychosis, extreme, treatment resistant, rapid cycling.   Mixed features predominant.  Never had a remission to date...just a couple of weeks with my bipolar disorder.  “Normal” for a few weeks a couple of times per year.  No anxiety remission.
      OCD, GAD, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety disorder, PTSD...I think that is everything.   Oh, I am significantly affected by a very strong dose of agoraphobia stemming from my PTSD and Panic Disorder.
      I have a great psychiatrist and I e been in treatment with him a since 2006.  I had a great therapist that had a co-transference issue and I ultimately ended my therapy with him. I have tried four therapists since firing the aforementioned therapist - but I unfortunately have lost faith in the process.
      I am a night owl by nature and it has really ramped up since being declared disabled in 2009/SSDI/cannot work.  I struggle with having a “routine,” although I have read that one with bipolar disorder tends to be more stable with a routine.  I’m easily overstimulated so I like the quiet and darkness..
      I know I have an eating disorder (anorexia, restricting type), but I politely yet firmly said I have had “eating issues” but I have no desire to “go there.”  My psychiatrist respects that although I am subject to a monthly weigh-in and I self-manage it.  
      I am currently relapsing right now, unfortunately. But, I have had it for so many years that I know at what weight my body and mind take a turn for the worst.  And I have to rein it back in and stop losing (meaning eat more).  I’ll never seek treatment as the recovery model, IMO, is ridiculous.  Kudos to those that have been able to “recover.”
      I take a bunch of meds, mainly psych meds  
      I like to read, Enjoy spending time with my boyfriend.  Internet.  I like learning things, I am currently and reading up on world history (pre-USA).  I keep up with psychology and sociology.
      Thanks for reading if you made it this far.

      I am so very lost, angry, hurt, depressed, explosive, and drowning.  I was put on latuda or my bipolar and depression acting up...  I hate new meds for this reason.  I started having my ptsd dreams again, ate everything in site and craved sugar omg terribly,  have been depressed, cant color which i love to do, just wanna sleep, explosive anger, crying jags, hate life, nothing makes me happy, everything just sucks.  Im so angry cause i feel like i did before i went on any meds, 20yr ago.  
      Im so confused i just feel like im grasping at air.. I was in the er the other night and they basically sent me home after giving my dose of larzapam i didn't take in the afternoon cause i doesn't help.  My theory of   it is it didn't help before the latuda what is gonna make it work coming off latuda or after off.. I remember why i drank now.. I didn't need to feel this then.. I want to drink so bad and wont cause I've been clean 6 yrs April will  be 7 and i worked to hard to get here and refuse to prove others right.  Im so so messed up i cant sleep cant watch TV cant color yet dont want to do any of the above either but if i dont sleep i hurt... has anyone felt this way..  It sux cause the battle to find meds to work will start tomorrow cause my liver doesn't process meds it flushes them out.. oh well sorry just needed to vent and hope someone can help

      Hi guys,
      just started Lithium yesterday. I know it can take several weeks to work, but I already feel it clearing my head a bit.
      question tho. Can lithium make anxiety worse in the beginning - like SSRI’s? Because I now find myself very panicky
      I am also on lexapro and mirtazapine.

      I was on Olanzapine for about one year and during that time I did excessive spending which may have caused  lowering impulse control and consequently am now in bankruptcy.
      Have been off Olanzapine since December, 2018.
      In March went on Seroquel and experienced manic situations, where I was out of control (never had this happen to me before). I became excessively hostile towards a clerk in Walgreens, reduced my veterinarian to tears and alienated alot of my neighbors by my raging.  We upped the Seroquel thinking I was having my first manic episode, it only made everything worse.  Since coming off of Seroquel in last two weeks, I am now calm and the urge to act out aggressively is gone and I am mortally embarrassed about my behaviors.
      New psych doc now, former one retired.  Started Reluxti two days ago at .5 mg.  First day experienced some brain zaps and thinking it might have been due to the mixing of recently going off of Seroquel and introducing Reluxti.  Today, no brain zaps.  Taking Benadryl to help with insomnia as Rexulti may become stimulating. 
      I know this is a very expensive drug and being on Medicare I do not qualify for any of the manufacturer's savings plans. My new psych doc believes he can keep me on his extra supplies forever or until they go generic.  I am worried about being on this drug and loosing him as a psychiatrist and ending up with a co-pay of $400.00 a month and ending up in the Medicare Donut-hole very quickly. The trial pack he gave me has a 14 day supply.
      I recently did a gene study thru GenOMind.  I am an ultra-rapid metabolizer and subject to many skin issues.  When I first saw him, he became very frustrated with me and didn't believe me that I can't tolerate most of the behavioral meds out there but once he got the gene study, he then understood.  The only drug he would suggest is Rexulti. 
      I am in a quandary as to what to do about going on this very expensive medication with no way of paying for this and getting stuck on this drug should I loose my new psych doc and his many samples.
