cry  My PDoc retired 6 months ago and since then I have been seeing regular MD who says I am not bipolar just hyper and sometimes depressed.  She put me on 10 mg of Celexa and last week, after being on meds 6-7 weeks, I thought I was going to jump out of my skin, hypomania for sure.  I really never had problems with depression until PDoc started bouncing me around on meds.  I either could not tolerate them or would not gie them a chance to work, (litium, lamictal, depakoe, trileptal, thorizine, risperdal, some I can not even remember).  I do take .5 Xanax 3 times a day and that is all that has gotten me through lately.  I need to go back to another PDoc, I hate the thought of going through the new Dr. thing again but I am bouncing all over the place mood wise.  I either want to sleep all the time or I am so hyper I have chest pains.  I know I have mild depression, post traumatic stress syndrome, high anxiety and I am working 45 hours a week and about to loose my mind.  I can not see going on like this the rest of my life.  I do not have the energy to fight anymore, I am so confused and I really do not know what my dx is. 
 
Thanks, I just needed to vent.

(((Hugs for BPWife)))

I have to look for a new Pdoc too and I'm dragging my feet. I just don't want to do it. It's such a pain. But we'll both be happier when we do. GP's are well meaning but they just don't have the knowledge that we need. I'm sorry you're suffering. Hang in there.
