im feeling a little bit better, i got to talk some stuff out. shes upping my wellbutrin a bit to help. i am having more times when i feel up and i have more emotions than i had before so maybe this stuff is finally taking some effect. i am a bit nervous, ok more than a bit because my GI doc took me off of my remicade for my crohns. with crohns its like bipolar, you just dont go off the meds. but he has some sort of a plan and he gave me some stuff to manage the symptoms so we shall see. it just makes me uneasy.
im also freaking out because i am facing losing my Medicaid. my case worker is a jerk and i have been trying to contact him since september. i finally got ahold of his supervisor and he told me that my caseworker said that he has talked to me several times. what a bunch of lies. however i found this program that they have for working people who are identified as disabled. with the bipolar and my other physical issues i think i qualify so imna work on that.

well thats my story for today :)

Oh a little good news! I'm glad you're feeling a little better. Hang in there. I so so so hope you don't lose your medicaid though. That would be awful. Could the supervisor do anything? Good luck with the Crohns. Crossing my fingers that it's okay...

Bipolar II
It is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare

I am glad you are feeling a little better.  Starting to come out of that fog is a nice feeling I tell ya  ;)

I sure hope you get this medicaid thing straightened out.  What a nightmare that can be to deal with, I'm sure!

I hope your GI has a good plan.  Is he aware of your Bipolar?  I am just hoping so he knows about your extra anxiety about starting something new and going off of the meds.

Hang in there, I hope you continue to feel better. ((((hugs))))

yeah, all my docs pretty much know what goin on with all of me. i do hope that the GI has a plan but i trust him so he probably does. i just have to have faith i guess.
today is a lonely day. i wish i had more to do. ah but then again even when i do i often have to punk out of it because im not well. ah the irony.
thanks for the replies,
