My name is Patty. I am 52. I was diagnosed bipolar II in July and I am still in the trial-and-error phase with my medications.
Just today, my doctor reduced the lamictal another 25 milligrams. I have dropped from a onetime total of 100 mg. to 50, but she added Seroquel.
Basically, I feel like I am in hell -- or knocking at the gates, anyway. I have been mean, angry, crying. I tell off store clerks at the drop of a hat. I haved been sharp with my daughter and a fire-breathing dragon with my husband.
I am afraid to go outside.
Thank you for listening.
