Hope everyone is feeling stable. We're all trying our best
I haven't posted in awhile b/c I was depressed for 6 weeks straight, deep and dark. Needless to say we adjusted my meds. Meanwhile we moved last weekend, after a good 3 weeks of getting rid of junk, packing etc. It was a very stressful time for me, But! We have a gorgeous new place w/new furniture!! EEK! I was so excitied about the furniture, I've never had new furniture! With the adjustment of my meds and the stress of moving lifted, I am feeling better. I felt the depression creeping in late yesterday into the night, and a bit today...but I'm hoping it leaves me alone for awhile. That last episode was torture.
Serafena, I hope that you can ward your episode off somehow. We loves you too!
Just on the topic of alcohol, I find it makes me depressed after I drink, so I stay away from drinking a lot, minus the few glasses of wine here and there.
I would also like to add I now go for massage (I hurt my shoulder at work--but it's been great for tension) and my new bathroom is a sanctuary so I am having a lot of soothing bubble baths now. My goal is relaxtion to be a part of my everyday life and I plan to start yoga soon (at home). I will post when I've accomplished that.
Take special care of yourselves,
Haven't been on line in a while. New med did not work out (Trileptal) and have not been doing so hot. I keep trying though! Saturday I could not get out of bed, crying, wondering "is this what my life is reduced to?" Sunday felt totally different. Can we say Rapid cycler? Well, two more weeks until my next PDoc appointment. Probably will try something different. I have been through eight different meds and none work or I am unable physically to tolerate.
I hope you feel better! I have to stay away from alcohol all together because it sets me off, one way or another. Gosh, I miss a cold beer once in a while.
I have come to realize that even though my family knows I am ill, they still do not take it into consideration and do things that just push every button I have. Can't figure out if it is me being over sensitive and them being insensitive. Does anyone else have this problem? Does every BP have this problem.
Well, hugs and kisses. I really missed coming to this forum. When no one hears from me it is because I am hurting to much to type, or talk, or communicate or whatever.
Anywho, later group!
