Hi there
I think my biggest problem at the moment is to figure out what is normal behaviour .
The area we live in is very remote and getting to therapy is quite a mission due to see the pschycrist on Wednesday for a check up , but I would also like to go to therapy to learn to deal with stress and anger.
Im feeling dopey from the meds but otherwise relaxed ....
I must tell you what happened tho its quite embaressing.
We live on a very large sugar cane estate (farm that grows sugar cane) and my hubby works for the company , in October  a position became vacant at the office and I applied for it the meantime I was also raising "total manure" about the state of the house we live in was a case of having no one to pick an argument with so that ws a handy one .
As it turned out im the only one in the area suitable for the position . but it occurred me that my behaviour hadnt been exactly "saintly" and perhaps I should explain to our two farm managers .. that im indeed a qualified pain in the behind and in fact bipolar and that they might be justifiably wary of having a "lunatic " working in the office .
The mess ups we make ????????? oh well they were both delighted with my honesty and it now depends on head office and I will probably get the job yeah .
I was very irritated this morning and this is what I cant work out .. what level of irritation is normal ????? my conures were screaming and I was discussing various herbs  to use with them ... and then I took my dogs for  awalk around the garden and I ws fine .
BTW I am South African and perhaps I use diffrent words and expressions so if you arent sure what im saying just yell. tongue

Hi Carolsclan,
You were just diagnosed last week I believe you said in a previous post. You also mentioned that the meds were already  making you feel better at that time. It takes a while for the full affects of the meds to kick in so you will need to be a little patient. But you also said you will be seeing your pdoc this Wednesday. Definately mention to him what is going on, with your moods and that you started a new job and what has happened there. Stress/anxiety about issues in our life contribute a lot to how we are feeling.
I'm glad you want to get into therapy. I totally encourage you to do that. It is suggested that bipolars also see a therapist as part of their wellness program.
Continue to keep us posted.
