hey first off i want to say that i hope everyone here is doing ok. Ihaven't read any posts just yet, but I wanted to let you all know that on top of being bi polar i have an issue with pms. a week and a half ago I stopped the zyprexa. so a few days later i start crying and feeling a bit suicidal and go to the hospital for evaluation. I stayed overnight while they looked for a bed at a different hospital than the ones I had previously been in. I woke the next morning and felt amazingly better. I left the hospital after signing all these safety contracts and today I go for my partial program. I hope it works. I also will be seeing my gyno for a birth control that will help these crazy irrational pms issues I have.
 
Ladies please, if you think you have an issue with pms PLEASE go seek help for it. It nearly got me hospitalized again and I know I dont want to be back in there again.
 
I feel fine now, I found a horse to work with, he's gorgeous!!!! So i will begin my own therapy that way.
 
I hope you are all doing ok. I missed this board.

Hi Melissa

I am so sorry that you have been going through this,I was wondering how you were doing!

The pms is very hard on alot of us...believe me I go through major crying spells ect ect...I feel so bad for my b/f at that time.

I envy you being able to do therapy with a horse,I grew up around them and miss them so much.

Good luck and I hope things start to get better.

Hi Miss P,

I know how hard pms is, I just went through that but felt better after I started. I am so happy that you get to work with horses, I always love them, I use to collect statues of them. They were my favorite animals but now I have dogs. I can;t afford to take care of a horse, but I will always love them.

hugs,

Karen

Well I'm feeling better these days. Went for a job interview yesterday. Dreading my next cycle, but the good thing is I'm meeting with my gyno for a birth control pill that will take the edge and craziness off during my cycle. I asked my psychiatrist to help me and she said that it wasn't her expertise and I should go ahead with my appointment with dr gyno. I was going to get an IUD, but I"m single and don't need it, and it wouldn't help with my PMS disorder. Man, being bi polar 2 and having pms issues, what else can go wrong? I met a really awesome guy this week and we might want to be exclusive, but how and when do I fill him in on my situation. He already knows my ex was physically, emotionally abusive, but he doesn't know about my bi polar. How do we talk about it? Maybe it's way too early in the relationship? I don't know. One thing at a time here I guess. Did I mention before that I found a horse to lease that can detect when a person has emotional issues. Kind of like a cancer sniffing dog. He might be for sale too. I'd consider buying him if we click.

Hi Melissa,

I think that it is amazing what you said about the horse.  I bet that he is so comforting to be around.  I envy you too.  I just love horses.

I would take it one day at a time with telling him that you are bipolar.  When you feel comfortable, then I would talk to him about it.  Unless you want to tell him right away.  I think that you will know when the time is right and then it will come easy for you to tell him.  I have faith that you will know when the time is right.

Hugs,  Karen

I think the horse is a wonderful idea. Horses are great for getting out and exercising, and they show so much love an affection. (And if it can sniff out cancer... all the better! lol) I hope that you click with him and that you have a great relationship, but as Karen has said... it may be a slow process. Just take one day at a time. You will know if he is right for you.

Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

Miss

As everyone has said,just take it one day at a time. You don't need to tell him right away. As far as I am concerned that is something that needs to be "earned". When he earns the right to hear your deepest secrets then you can tell him... you have to protect yourself at all costs.
And,once you are serious enough,any man that truly loves you will just take it with a grain of salt. No one is perfect and being bi-polar does not make you any less perfect for someone.

I love idea of the horse,what a great deal!
