Hello Rain,

Welcome to HealingWell, it is great to have you on board. I am sorry you are struggling to get your moods under control. Have you been taking Seroquel for a while? When my moods are off, sometimes it takes several weeks and even several months before things are in control. Please know you are not alone and keep posting. Hang in there! :-)

thanks for the reply and no i just got on it as of today ... i was just diagnosed "on paper" that i was bi polar its kinda hard hit that  now i know that i am ..... just was a kinda a sit down and take a step back and look at your life situation. But we all have some sort of situation that makes you do this . I cant tell you how happy i am to find some where to "vent " or to find a good shoulder if you know what i mean tongue . thank you.

Unfortunately, meds can take 4-6 weeks to fully work; just give it a little time. Seroquel should also help you with sleeping, it used to knock me out when I last took it. Please let us know how things are going.

Hi Rain,

Let me welcome you also. Definitely take some time to let the whole situation sink in. It's a lot to take in. Olivia's right, it can sometimes be quite a long process for stability to settle in, so it's really important you be patient with yourself and those around you. Get some books to read on the subject, and hopefully your husband will want to get educated on the subject too. If you want some good book recommendations, we can all chime in with some.

Hi Rain and welcome. I was diagnosed back in May and it is still an adjustment for me at times. It is a lot to take in. give it some time and give the meds some time to work. and this is a great place for support.
