im doing quite well actually. had a 30 minute episode yesterday, but the whole week ive been going out (gasp!) and running errands like a 'normal' person. i got too tired yesterday and forgot to eat on time hence the episode. other than that the zyprexa at 20 mg is helping me be stable. i also can take more zyprexa PRN, when the stress level is high. timing is essential with my meds, if i take it too late it triggers an episode, so its trial and error. i take the Z at 4 pm, it makes me sleep at about 9ish.
my pdoc is so nice and he really has my best interests in mind.
also, the DBSA support groups have really helped a lot. its like a face to face HW, and helps with the loneliness and isolation. I totally recommend it to anyone who has depression or BP.
Have i told you that my pdoc changed my dx to BPII?
