It seems that several of the posts I've read today have mentioned how irritable that person is. Is this common for this time of year with the majority of BP's?
I have great mornings, but my afternoons are terrible. I just can't stop yelling. My house is the cleanest it's been in a couple of years. My meds have finally kicked in and my energy is back, I've done deep spring cleaning for weeks. I think I've probably thrown half the contents of my house in the trash. If I could just get this anger under control things would be great. I've tried tweaking my meds even. I went off the adderall for a few days, i only take that once a day in the morning, then in addition to bad afternoons I had bad mornings as well. Dropped my wellbutrin to 300 a couple of weeks ago, still no change. (my pdoc actually said I could do that if necessary) I dare not mess with my abilify. Right now ativan is the only thing making any difference at all, and I don't like to take that very often.
I'm sure my family wishes I would just get a grip, and I'm really trying, I just can't seem to get this irritability under control.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.
You just have to accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
