Hello all. My username is tyno3. I fall into a multitude of Foruns. I'm diagnosed as BiPolar since 1990. I can't stay with anything for very long. Relationships are short, I do things to push people away. I'm most comfortable curled up in a fetal position, alone. My employment history is very choppy, I always thought it was my personality. I either couldn't show up at all, or I'd break out in tears over silly things. It's been a very choppy life. When I'm up, rarely, but still, agitated, anxious and irritable. It 's a really uncomfortable place to be. Being down is kinda like an old friend, just me and my sadness. I'm not really on meds right now. I take 100mgs. of amyltriptilene at bedtime in order to sleep. The SSRI's stopped working after about five years. Mood stabilizers, I can't tolerate the side effects. I also have a chronic pain problem, an autoimmune disorder, migraines, Irritable bowel, and possibly Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I think my Limbic system is royally messed up.Anyone else got this combo? Thank's bye for now.

Hi Tyno3,

Welcome to Healing Well, it's nice to have you. Feel free to forum-hop as much as you like -- lots of people do. I'm sorry you are in such a dark place right now, and more or less without meds as well. That's very tough.

Feel free to jump right into the conversation...

Hi Tyno, I'm new to this site and thought I would say hi and hope you're having a better day today than you were when you posted your first thread.

Welcome. I understand how you feel with the downs. I too do much better alone on bad days but I now have a 9 month old to take care of and that keeps me out of bed most of the time. I too could not hold a job for very long. I have been unemployed for 4 years now and before that I missed work a lot at the job I had. I just couldn't be around people and would get stressed out over little things and cry at the drop of a hat. I tend to push people away as well. Mr. T has the same problem too. Luckily, my husband understands my illness and is very supportive. He has been with me for 5 years now and we dated for two years. He hasn't ever left me and takes an active part in my illness and treatment. I have lost a lot of friends but have a few faithful ones who accept me for who I am. Anyway, welcome. You will find lots of support here.

Tyno3 again. Thanks for you welcomes. I'm experiencing a bit of hypomania right now. I think, no I know, these longer June days have flipped me into an anxious, irritable state. That's agitation. As I was coming up from the depths of depression I started a bunch of new projects. Now I'm feeling overwhelmed. I am productive though, and am getting some long term issues ironed out, but I feel people pulling back from me, and attribute that to being "över the top". Still waiting to see a psychiatrist, over a year. Lamictal, I tried it a while back, at first it seemed to do nothing, then I developed a rash. Doc, at that time took me right off of it. Tried Valporic Acid, really hard on the liver. I don't want lithium, makes people look like a marshmallow, puffy and stiff.
