I am really struggling to accept this. New med that was good for one week, then sent me into total mania, and I could not control my tongue movement. Stop med and called Dr., he said re start it, but I forgot to tell him about muscle movement, so did not restart and left message for him to call me today. I just can not fathom taking meds rest of my life, even though I knew this was correct Dx (2nd opinion, new PDoc, old one retired and never would come right out and say what the problem was, mentioned rapid cycler alot). I am more educated about the condition now, but I feel terrible today and all I want is to feel better, forget about it and go on with life.
Any helpful tips from you great people experienced with dealing with BP1? Regular MD said I did not have it and thought I had high anxiety and put me on meds that did not really help. I went to MD after PDoc retired, I thought, I do not need a specialist, I can go forward without one. Well, that lasted 6 months and I kept calling to make appt and would then cancel, finally I kept it.
