Just got back from my psychiatrist visit. The second I walked into her room and closed the door I began to cry. She immediatly noticed that I was also shaking and we talked about what's been going on since our last visit two weeks ago when she upped my cymbalta. I told her about my non stop thinking about my ex and how I can't stop thinking about the day we broke up over and over and it even leaks into my dreams and how I have been having the urge to wash my hands after I touch anything. So she says I have Bipolar 2 which I already knew, but wasn't accepting it. So we decrease the cymablta by 30 mil, add limectal and someone other one that acts faster until the Limectal kicks in, and I go back to see her in two weeks.
Man I hope this does the trick, because I know if I went any longer feeling this way I would end up back in the hospiital and I want to start my classes in two weeks. That is if everything works out in my favor.
So that's the deal for now. Thanks to those who gave me support. I'm glad I'm here. smurf

misspstink,

I was on Lamictal in the past, and it can take up to 4-6 weeks to fully kick in. Sorry, I just wanted to let you know.

I am so happy that you say your psyc.  I know how hard of a time that you were having, so now take a deep breath of relief as you know that soon you will be feeling better. 

And remember count the days till classes as days to relax and get ready.  Not days of stress and anxiety.  I know you are going to feel better now and I am so happy for you.

Keep us posted, Okay?  You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hugs,

thanks! :) I'm aware that Limictal can take several weeks to kick in. that's why she gave me one on top of it that is faster acting and ill take both until Limictal has gotten a chance to work. But which ever one of them knocked me out. So I guess I will be taking it at night an hour os so before bed time. Just knowing that this should help me out makes me feel a whole lot better. I so badly want to see good days ahead.

i hope all is well. i'm not on any medications, mainly because im too scared to ask for them. but i understand your feeling. i go to counseling regularly and many times have felt the need to go to the emergency room. i hope that everything works out. ive been avoiding the hospital also because i too start classes really soon and dont want to miss them. just hang in there.

eyes,
why are you so scared to ask for them? has your therapist ever suggested that you take them? I was considering a life with out them and dealing through diet and exercise, but I am afraid that is not going to be my reality. I never ever want to feel this badly again in my life. It's been about 15 months of straight depression with little bits od a lift, but they never lasted for long. Always teary though. Can you imagine 15 long months of feeling like total and utter crap? Oh man to never feel that way again I'd give anything for that. I'm forgetting about life with out meds, but I'm still thinking about helping my issues through diet and exercise. I hope you find the strength to ask for the meds at some point, if you feel you need them. Hugs to you eyes and everyone else on this board. We deserve tham and need them.
