I wanna hear from my peeps:

How is everyone doing today?

I'm a little tired and a little blue. We got back late last night from a 13 hour road trip (tired) and I quit the job I used to really like but which is now driving me nuts (blue.) I'm alright, but I can use some cheering up, so I imagine I'll need to get out of the house before long.

Good afternoon.

 

I'm here in body, but certainly not in mind. Excuse me while I crawl in the corner and have a nap! eyes

 

Hope you feel better soon! :-)

I am new to this so I am not sure how to begin.  Can anyone tell me if they are experiencing hair loss on Lamictal and anxiety, agitation, anger.. etc.  Is there a medicine that will help with either of these?  My P doc is not very helpful.  If I don't like the medicine he does not seem to care.  Have to go to him because of my insurance.  Any suggestions?

I'm kind of here. Been really sick the past 2 days so much that I couldn't even check the forums. Been resting today because I've somehow got to get out of the house to grocery shop...ugh!

Newlife1...I don't have any advice for you...maybe you should start a new thread with your concerns. Sorry I'm not much help.

Hey. I wasn't feeling well on Sunday and Monday. I have had upset stomach, swelling in my hands, feet, and legs, and a nasty headache (all pregnancy related, I'm sure). I got depressed because of it. I am tired of feeling bad and fragile. And it is hard to not do anything - bed rest is making me depressed even more. Plus, people are getting on my last nerve especially my dad. I need a vacation from it all. But can't. In short, I am trying to do whatever I can to get my baby here as close to his due date as possible. I just have harder days when I am manic or depressed.

Hope you feel better soon!!

Hugs,
Missflip

MissFlip, you need a project while lying there incubating baby. Think...is there anything that you have always wanted to do for someone that you haven't had the time to arrange, do, make...etc. Your hands and speaking and mind work. I went through the same thing while being on bedrest for my twins. I organized and researched a project for a friend, and did all the mending of clothing that had long been delayed, and I finally finished the blanket for my oldest son I was crocheting...it was a BIG blanket. It helped a lot to focus that way. Good luck. LFW

Hello Everyone!

sad  ~BIG HUGS TO ALL OF YOU!~

I'm still here reading along. My life is so stressful right now I am hangin by the hair of my chinney, chin, chin! eyes

I'm just trying to put one foot in front of the other to move along. Been quite irritable lately. Although I'm sure my DH would have a different word for it! But he is going through a lot of stuff too right now and doesn't need any crap from me. I know you spouses of BP's know what I'm talkin about. But I'm trying as best as I can. I've been keeping a lot of stuff inside and it's tearing me up inside! I'm trying so hard to be there for him right now. I feel completely useless and like a thorn in his side. sad

I often think about how wonderful his world would be like if I were not in it. (I'm not going to do anything) I just wonder what if...like if we were not together anymore. There is so much more that is involved with this than I care to share but this is basically what I am going through.

So this is how another peep is doing!

~GROUP HUGS~

I hope that you are feeling better! I don't know how all bipolar sufferers are, but I know that my husband does worse when he travels or in any way gets off his schedule or "out of his box" - or "frame" as Piaget would have it! Hopefully, now that you are back home and have slept in your bed, things look better!

after 7 hours in the ER last night I'm just as sick and with no answers. obviously I'm pretty miserable. going back to bed. obviously this isn't all bp related, but I'm sure the bp isn't helping my outlook on things right now.

Sukay,

I am so sorry to hear you are feeling so low. You know he would not want you to be anywhere else but right by his side. The best thing you can do is take care of yourself, focus on you, and try to get in a better place....he just wants you to feel better. Don't worry about the stress you are causing him. He is choosing to be there because he loves you and wants to be there. Let him worry about himself.

Serafena,
 
I am sorry you are so blue.....hopefully the weather there is much nicer than here (Cleveland) and a walk outside might lift your spirits. BREATHE in the nice air and feel the grass beneath your toes!
 
(((HUGS TO BOTH OF YOU)))

I'm depressed due to weight gain (took Depakote, taking Zyprexa) and gained 24 lbs.  I had lost 20, gained those back plus 4.  I feel despondent and hopeless.  And hungry.

Thank you everyone for your good wishes. I think I'm evening out a bit -- still a bit down, but okay. You guys cheer me up.

Closure -- why the er? You okay?

Sukay...GOT IT! From the spouse perspective...just own your own "stuff" is the BEST advise I think I could give. If you snap, or snarl....acknowledge it is not him...it is you....and work to release it without it being about him. You can vent away, and even if he is stressed, he can hear it...but only if it is at the moon, not him. And he is there to hear your frustration...but probably not at or about him. Then, you won't feel so stressed, or bottled up, and you will be THAT MUCH MORE avialable to support him through his issues at the moment. I share this as a spouse that when I am stressed, still has the capacity to listen...as long as I DON"T feel attacked by what I am listening to. Make sense?

Serafena, glad you are leveling out. Some sunshine is coming your way...I'm sure of it.

Closure and Missflip, hope you two are starting to feel better soon!

Hugs to all....LFW

georgie girl...boy do I know how you feel! I was on zyprexa and I was an eating machine! gained almost 30lbs before I had to be taken off of it because of the weight gain.

serafena...just been really dizzy and feeling faint plus lots of joint pain the past 2 days. almost fell twice. plus I was having mild chest pain so after being hounded by everyone I felt I should go to the ER. found nothing out, but today when I woke up from a long nap I had a horrible sore throat. since then I've been sneezing and coughing up a storm so I think I figured out what the problem was...just a really nasty cold starting. I'm assuming the chest pain is bad chest congestion. fun stuff. not usually a big deal, but with my other health problems at the moment it's just one thing after the next. ugh! hopefully I'll be well enough to have my procedure next week.
