hello jaded, i want to say welcome to the site. I've only been on for a little bit, but i can tell you that there are some very kind, and knowledgable people here. I'm am also a rapid cycler, and have just gotten off a 5 day full blown mania, and now am in the depression part of the rollercoaster. But for me, its kinda like the weather where i live.....if i just hold on tight for a bit it'll change once again. IMO, I think it was wise that you talked to your pdoc about your meds. They can't help if they don't know whats really going on. I've been going to therapy for a while and it does help, but here you can hear first hand the experiance strength hope and compassion that the average therapist just cant convey no matter how hard they try. Kinda like hearing it from the horses mouth so to speak.
i look forward to getting to know ya!
take care of yourself (your the only one that really can :)
Welcome. First off, I want to congratulate you for letting you pdoc know that the meds weren't working, that can be hard, especially if you are manic! I am also on Seroquel, which has helped me immensely-how long have you been on it? It sounds like you might want to give her a call asap and let her know that you have those hypomanic/manic symptoms still as the right dose of Seroquel should curb them...
Hello Jaded. I would just like to welcome you here. I am also a rapid cycler (is that spelled right? it doesnt look it...) although I am BP 2. Anyhow, I am also goign through a manic stage right now also. However, im very new to this, just recently diagnosed, and i have no tips for you. Just hang in there!
This site is great, and we are all here for support, if nothing else. Welcome!
