just wanted to say hi to everyone. i was just diag. with bp this past wed. along with social anxiety and panic disorder with agoraohobia. i'm not really all that sure were to start. i'm feeling overwhelmed with everything but slightly relieved to finally know "whats wrong". i was already on paxil cr and the dr. added geodon and topomax too. i have, so far not missed a day. i forget frequently but am trying hard not to. hubby is helping with this as well. well any advice on where to look, books to read etc. would be greatly appreciated. i am looking forward to your help and maybe supporting you all too.

i have problems. i keep waiting for a reply. i'm so needy. i have nothing else to do. so i'm here waiting. and it hurts my feelings that no one has replied. i'm so sad. why do i need others like that. i'm alone here at the house and i'm so bored i cant stand myself. i think that the pills have sent me into a manic episode, but i dont know for sure. very new to this well new to the name. not new to the symptoms. oh goodness. i need to get off here and find something to do before i get kicked out on my first day for rambling.

How are you feeling jerseycherries? Any side effects? What are you crocheting? Welcome to the BP club. At least you know everyone else here is as goofy and unpredictable as you are.

ok well technically i havent started to crochet it yet. but it will be a baby blanket. couldnt decide which patternn to do so i had my mom choose. i'm really jittery feeling. specially right now. but right now my sugar is low. but i ate so its coming back up. i dont remember if i said it but i also have diabetes. thank you so very much for welcoming me. ya know before wed. BP always meant blood pressure to me. thats forever changed. i think i am having a manic episode. can it be the meds? or is it just being so happy to finally have a name (even if it is three names) for it all. dont know. keeping and eye on it and will talk to doc. if it gets worse.

Hi jerseycherries,

How are you feeling today? I'm new to the board as well. I was diagnosed in July 2006. My family doctor started me out on Paxil (because both my brothers do well on it), and it sent me into mania. That's when I got sent to a pdoc and was diagnosed with BP I. I was told that with BP I, antidepressants can be a bad thing. How long have you been on Paxil? I was also on Geodon last Christmas, and I LOVED it, I just couldn't get past the periods of heavy sedation so I had to stop. From what I've experienced, BP can be an overwhelming thing. But there's lots of us out there (I'm just now finding that out), so you're not alone. I'll keep checking to see how you are. Keep me posted, and hang in there! :-)

i was just recently put on paxil by my reg. doc. she just upped the dose like three weeks ago. my very first p.doc appt. was last wed. and thats when i was diag. and i think that right now if it werent for the topamax and geodon i wouldnt be sleeping at all or very little. i dont get tired until about an hour and a half after taking them. still feeling jittery and wound up. but sadly i'm getting very little done. thank yo so very much for answering me. i'm am so very glad that i stumbled upon this woderful place. and how are you feeling?

 Hi, Jerseycherries
 I know you are overwhelmed but try and be patient. My husband tried several meds before they found the ones that works best for him. My husband was diagnosed last August and we have had some really bumpy days. I give my husband his med in the morning when he gets up and in the evening before I go to work so that I know he has taken them.As you probaly have found out short term memory goes with the BP. I trust that you have a supportive husband because you need a good support team and it is not always for us the (spouse ) to feel supportive. Please, let your husband know that BP is treatable if you have a good dr and counselor and support team. Let me know how you are doing.

i'm doing good. at least i think i am. taking my meds everyday. my hubby and i are working together on that. and we've got friends and my mom and his parents to help support. they dont know alot about it all but they're here for us and are doing they're best. we just got two books to read and may pass aroung to others to read also about bipolar. one is bipolar for dummies and the other is the bipolar disorder survival guide. i'm also trying to find a support group in my area to go too. my pdoc is an hour away and i would like a group closer to home. feel free to email me and i will give you my hubby's email. he is intersted in talking to others about being a spouse of someone with bipolar. i feel pretty centered and i go back to the pdoc on the 11th of june. and my mom goes with me cause hubby has to work. but she tells on me so i'm covered there. thank you for your concern and i look forward to more talks with you.

:-)  Hi, Again,
How did your appointment go on the 11th? I hope all is well. My husband started on a new med Friday.  Klopiton. So far so good. His doc is trying to get him off of xanex. I am going to e-mail you my address so we can e-mail.  I didn't know so many people have bipolar. At least there is help even if it does take a while to get something that works. I look forward to hearing from you and to know how you are doing.

my appointment was ok i guess. it was short. and all we talked about was my meds. he decided to increase my topamax to 200mg and i dont know y. i felt very rushed. it was only a half hour. then i had some behaviours sunday that we tried to report to him on monday but still cant get a return phone call back from him. so i guess, to him self harm is ok. to my husband it is not and he found a hotline to call monday night and talked to them and i talked to them and they set me up with a counselor yesterday. so i am now going to see a counselor on top of a shrink. but i'm going to try to find a new shrink. think that its a good idea. if they cant call us back when we need them too. then we dont need to keep going to them. i didnt get you email. not sure if you tried sometimes my email acts up and doesnt let new people through. but i want to email you . so if you would just try this email address until i get my hotmail account fixed. lachance@fidnet.com. unless you havent tried hotmail yet then try them both i guess i s dont know. but i'm rambling so i'll stop now. hope to hear from you soon.
