Last night my oldest dd and I went to a wedding and before I went I told dh that we probably won't be able to eat the dinner that they serve because they serve it really late, like at 11:30 or midnight. So we went and we left the wedding at 10:45. got home at almost 11:00. Well, dh had ordered Hardee's for everybody (here they deliver) but didn't order anything for us. I got pissed and started yelling and he started yelling and we got into a big fight. I know it was stupid of me. but it was just so frustrating because we were hungry too and I told him that we probably wouldn't eat there. Still it wasn't an excuse for me to go off on him. and now he is upset with me. he says he isn't but I can tell that he is and I don't know what to do to make things better. I guess I just to have to wait it out but it is so hard to wait. I hate when he is upset or mad at me. It is very difficult for me to take.

I have been getting irritated more often lately too and last night was the first time I have flipped out in a long time. In fact I haven't done that since starting my meds. but since being on the abilify I have been more irritable and agitated. It also seems like it is putting me in mixed states. has this happened to anyone else?

When I was on Abilify it gave me insomnia, but later on I'd get really tired. I looked up some side effects though, and different thinking patterns and mood changes are some of the side effects. I'd tell your doctor about this so he can put you on something else.
I’m lonely; gotta look for a party
And dance with somebody tonight
Cuz I’m lonely; I feel empty inside
Can’t you make me feel alive?

Twisted, honey, it was 10:45 and you hadn't eaten. I would've bitten someone's head off too. :-)

I'm sorry, I'm not making light of it, I'm just reminding you that it's okay to have bad moods occasionally. I would've been starving and probably a little grouchy myself. That doesn't make it okay, but you should give yourself a little break.

well, he is acting like nothing happened now, which I am thankful for. I guess I was beating myself up for nothing. I hate it when I do that.

I am happy that he is acting like nothing happened. I think we are hardest on ourselves at times. I take abilify too. At one point it was over stimulating for me and I had to cut back, but now it is working good. I agree with Serafena, it was late and you were hungry. It would of been nice if he would of thought of you. But it is over now, so go from there, things will be okay, just don't beat yourself up over it. You didn't do anything wrong.

Once, my DH went out for Arby's and he forgot to ask for horsey sauce. I gave him Hell for 3 hours. I kid you not. We look back on those times now and laugh...but are thankful for the progress I have made over the years in being able to control my emotions.

I can relate to your post...I know that the guilt you feel after losing your temper is worse than anything. Don't dwell on it...we all have those days...Let it go and move forward. It sounds like your DH understands that it wasn't "entirely" within your control. You are very lucky.

Hi mandamay,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. It's nice to have fresh voices. You're absolutely right. We have to let go of guilt over episodes and move on. Apologize and move on. Tell us a little bit about yourself, Mandamay.
