Hi Sukay, thanks for the reply.
I pretty much relapsed into a nervous breakdown on Tuesday and had to rush in to see my psychiatrist who put me on Ativan and Abilify. I'm still in a manic state, and I'm only sleeping four hours at night. I'm also on Neurontin, Wellbutring Xanax and Ambien. This whole episode was started by the prednisone. I just put my two weeks notice in to my job on Monday and I haven't been in all week. I'm trying to figure out a way to politely to tell them that I am crazy and they really don't want me working around scalpals right now. (I work at a microbiology lab).
Gawd, I haven't worked in five years, and I was doing perfectly fine. Completely stable, with minimal meds. Now its back to crazy town after only three months of work. I hate this stupid disease.
