Anti-depression meds Feb 06-July 07
Bipolar diagnosed last month, Nov 17th
I just recently had been through a difficult and stressful time as my wife didn’t know what was going on with me and wanted a divorce after 20years.
I had some passing thoughts of suicide while driving back from work late one night and that’s when I check myself in to the hospital for help.
I was not the happiest person to be around and was withdrawn from my wife and kids at times. My wife said I was verbally abusive and just a mean person at times.
She would say I was Jekyll and Hyde
and never knew what mood I was in and felt she had to tip tow around on egg shells I was on ant- depression meds for a year and a half until last July and then I stopped as I didn’t make time to go back to my doctors office (I know now I cant stop)while in the hospital I was prescribed “Mood Stabilizers” 25mg of Lamictal
in the AM And 25mg Seroquel before bed
I asked the wife if she has seen a difference in my mood and personality and she said she had seen a vast improvement and I converse with her more than before, she is glad to have a partner back and happy with my changes.
I have my first Dr appointment for therapy Dec 17th, I did do a lot of group counseling while I was in the hospital and got a lot out of it so I really am looking forward to individual counseling with a Dr.
I wanted to let you know that I gave your post a title
