Hi, charron, I'm sorry I was out yesterday.
I feel so bad for you right now, so you didn't hear anything frm Friday night when he wouldn't come to the phone? Don't worry, you will eventually.
Does he have any siblings?
I didn't know your daughter was BP as well, I don;t remember you mentioning that before. My father is BP as well, self medicating and unwilling to seek treatment becuase he is too stubborn to see a pdoc. He lets his GP give him some worthless ADs that make it worse.
I'm curious why your doc chose amytriptaline? Have you tried any SSRI/SNRIs? Maybe you could talk to him about some Effexor XL, and soemthing for sleep if you're having trouble; you may feel better on that.
I wish i could make it bettter for you now, charron, I feel for what you're going through. I do believe you will be hearing from him soon, tho don't worry. It's not like us to just quit calling altogether. A break yes, but it's awful not knowing how long.
Keep writing in here, you will feel better. Also, for some people keeping a daily journal helps.
Feel better, sweetie
Hi charron. It was good that your daughter told him she feels better, MAYBE he will think about that - or was that in the past?
Sometimes even I can't stand BPs! (kidding, really), but for the pain they cause their loved ones and the unwillingness to get better. (Of course I"m not being hypocritical here, I am a prime example.) Its just so frustrating and sad for the "normal" spouse. If they can stay normal throughout it.
I'm glad you write, I have always heard it helps. I start to, but then can't remember to keep doing it lol, so I just tell other people to do it!
I hope you have a better MOnday than your w/e was.
