Started 20mg. Celexa after just 10mgs. for many months.
Came off Abilify and on 50mgs. Lamictal.

I am wandering fromroom to room not sure what to do,
I am praying and breathing deep.

At the same time I am anxious I feel tired like my head is full
of granite gravel and I have a song that won't quit playing over
and over...burn burn like a wicker cabinet...la la la la la la

I'm wondering how I'll get through the day. Yesterday I wondered
how I could possibly get a cake from the grocery store for a presentation
my husband is giving today. I did get it done though.

I am embarrassed at what my teen ager will think of me today. he
loves me though.

Sorry I'm rather directionless today

Hi Red!  Sorry your feeling a little lost today.

 

Go clean the toilet.  Don't forget to clean around the base.  Make it shine!

I hope you are feeling better today, every day I ask myself how am I going to get through the day. And somehow I manage to. Everyday I make a list of things I'd like to get done and I feel good if even get to mark off one or two things, then I make a new list the next day. I think being bipolar can be exhausting but I don't how to be any other way.
 
Don't worry what your son thinks, I have a teenage son and I know he loves me just the way I am. Besides teenagers are pretty wrapped up in finding themselves and can be
 kind of self absorbed so he/she might not be noticing that much. But you know  he/she  loves you. My children have always known me the way I am, it's what is normal to
 them I guess.
 
Don't be hard on yourself,  we are all trying to do the best we can and sometimes it's really hard and sometimes things don't get done but then we get a new day to try.

Ladynimue...thank you so much for posting...I really needed someone to understand
and support me...I've been having a rough go of it what with withdrawing from old meds
and getting on new meds....feeling like a failure for having to quit my job due to a major
depressive episode and being ultra low on money. I've also lost the support and affection of my Father
which is difficult as he has a brand new second family complete with new young daughters
and doesn't want anything to do with me or my son. The stress caused me to start smoking again
and I quit working out but I'll get back on it...I feel so much better after reading your post and I'm
feeling more stable on the new med dosage increase.

I'm working with my A.A. sponsor on all of this
and she is awesome...she doesn't let me stay in the hole too long and
I have to do a lot of work on myself by looking at my part in things and practicing forgiveness.
So things are getting better. I also rely on my spirituality and connection to the Divine.


I like the list idea and especially feeling good if I only do some of it.
That takes the pressure off and at the same time gives structure to the day.

That's also cool about your children loving you as you are...my son does the same...it's just
me trying to live up to an illusive perfect standard of what a Mom should be that can
stumble me up.

I appreciate your support and caring and taking the time to post something helpful and kind.
