When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded...********************
I can always count on you for good advise. I am REALLY trying to deal with this. My hubby bought a safe and locked up all my meds, including the Nyquil, Benadryl, cough syrup, etc. He's giving me my doses that I divy out in a pill thingy every week. I hate this, but I know it's for my own good, but I still hate it.
I ordered 3-4 new books on Amazon.com for bipolar, one's a workbook. When they get here, I'll post the titles as maybe they can help someone else.
I didn't really take offense to Shakes comments, I know he/she meant well. But I can't deny what I have. I have to deal with it head on. I can't bury my head in the sand. I go to church every week and am on my knees all the time. But it's up to me, not anyone else. All I can do is ask for help and advise here, through my therapist and my NP. And believe me, I listen. It's hard sometimes, but I try so hard. I'm in a funk tonight because of the pill safe thing. I feel like a baby, but right now, I can't be trusted with my meds. I just can't have a huge quantity at my disposal until I can pull myself out alone. Hence the Friday hospital stayover. Not fun, but I did it to myself and then realized what I'd done and called for help.
Rosie, you rock!
Wow Chelle! It's really great that you are being so positive in dealing with this - your an inspiration.
And , that you know what's best even though it's uncomfortable sometimes.
Hey , you're NOT a baby - it was an intelligent move.
Keep up the good work.
