Still better than before but maybe not out of the woods completely.  Guess I never am.  No meds.  I'm not even sure the new problems have anything to do with the BP.  Ok I guess maybe I'm just in the biggest denial ever.  Mostly just anxiety.  The feeling that if I let my guard down for even a moment that the panic will overtake me and I'll be so consumed I'll never come back.  I get the edges and slam the lid down on it again.  Weird dreams, impulses I haven't had in ages.  Right now my life is so busy I don't have time for a breakdown but I feel like that may be whats coming, whether I'm ready or not.  It's strange, I don't feel manic (okay maybe a little hypomanic but thats normal for me),  I'm not depressed and still feeling out of control.

Hi, Ellie - I'm sorry to hear you're not doing well. confused  
 
You are hypomanic with anxiety about being hypomanic.  Maybe if you got another doc who could find the right mix for you and stay on your meds it would end.  I think everybody here would suggest the same.  BPs off meds don't do well.  Ever.  Please consider that.

Bp's on med's must also be able to pay for them.  Insurance script coverage is sadly lacking and sometime hard choices must be made.  State programs will not contribute with insurance coverage.

I actually did fairly well for a number of years without meds.  I'm making it now.  Just not particularly comfortably.  As long as the heavy mania doesn't hit again I'll muddle through.  I KNOW I need another dr.  I'm also aware I'd do alot better on the meds.  I was better.  Right now, I simply have no options. 

Thanks for the input

There is an option that lots of patients do; samples are free and very abundant.  Get a new doc and tell him about your financial situation; they are always more than happy to help, because they know how dangerous it is to be unmedicated.   Your full mania will return at some point, it always does and every time you go off meds and have another episode it gets harder and harder to stabilize.
