This is something I found in my search to learn all I can about Bipolar, it comes with my perfection side. As we are very creative and intelligent, I feel the need each day to learn something new about BP, to better educate people who want to know. I found over the last few days and in my recent past that people don't seem to fully understand that no 2 Bp's are alike, thus we are not treated alike. So I wanted to do some " soul searching" , if you will into my Bipolar. Amazingly I found someone I could relate too, and understand with. If you want to learn more about Bp, and the anger that can come with it, not rudeness, anger and what you do with it, here's a great informative site. Shannon you are a rapid cycler , please check this out. Sandy you too, you might relate with it as well. I hope someone learns something new, or who can understand someone they know who has Bipolar.It's called gettin it back! Anyone else need some helpful sites please let me know. Nickie As I just read in the rules it is not allowed  to add links to other sites. Geez... it was very informative. I know weve done it before. Whatever, Shannon and Sandy I will email you it.

Not a problem Sassie and sad. Hmmm...... wreckless behavior and sex and the drive hm....... sounds so familiar. Are you Bipolar II? You really shouldn't drink due to the depressant that alcohol is and how it affects meds and moods, for up to days later. I used to be a drunk, put myself i the hospitable twice. Still have trouble sometimes, i still crave it sometimes. I just know my limits. If I was normal I could get drunk no problem. Not possible for me now or then , but I didn't see it then. Nickie

I agree this does sound so familiar to the point I got butterflies in my stomach thinking about some of the things I have done in the past.  I am BP II or so I am told.  I am currently taking Lexapro, Depakote and Risperdal.  Sometimes I feel so angry but I keep it bottled up so as not to go off on someone I dont know if its them and the things they do to agitate me or if its me.  I just went back to work last week after being off for 2 months I had a major depressive episode with sever panic attacks I didnt want to leave my house it was the safest place I felt.  Like nothing could hurt me there.  But now that I am back to work I cant sleep at night my mind is constantly racing so I am getting 5-6 hours of sleep a night and waking up exhausted.  My doctor put me on effexor and by the 8th day i felt like a zombie so he weenied me off of them I have another appointment with him today.  I feel like I am running out of options.  I havent had a good day in so long I wouldnt know one if it slapped me in the face.

Oh Ria, I know exactly what you mean, it took me awhile to find the right cocktail too. I'm on Abilify, Lexapro, Seroquel, and Topamax. I bet we could share some stories!!! My past path must be littered with victims 4 deep and a mile wide!!! And talk about embarrasing antics OMG!!!

I hope you find the right meds soon.

OK, here I go with my usual lecture.  You are on an SSRI.   They are not recommended for BPs.  They often cause a mania, irritability, anger, etc.  You are already on a stabilizer and an antipsychotic - I know not all meds work for all people but to be that irritable, would probably resolved somewhat or completely if you were on another AD like welbutrin or better yet, Lamictal which is a mood stabilizer as well, it just has a great antidepressant effect on BPs.  If that isn't enough, its common to mix the two together.  I think I was the queen of mean and irritable, ESPECIALLY when I was taking an SSRI, and severe panic attacks with it as well.   When I started this combination, it went away about 98%.  Of course, if someone pisses me off, I'll still get really mad tho! confused    I know you said it made you like a zombie; but if you're depressed talk to your doc about those two!

I hope you feel better.

Shannon

Hey, hon, I think it may be time to go to the hospital.   You have been having these psychotic episodes for the past few days, now you're depressed with them - that's the most dangerous state of all for BPs, you know what I mean.   Please go to the hospital.  The world, school, etc. will wait and still be there when you get out.  it's only a few days, and they can stabilize you.    Please.  Write me if you want, I havent heard from you all day.  OK?
