After a month I seem to have stabilised on my meds , on Saturday I was miserable and down in the dumps , then I realised im sick ..... silly clot so yes I will feel miserable.
Also we have a lot of stress at the moment , the company my husband works for has been bought out and his job is no longer secure , and money is very very very tight , so decisions have to made etc.
BUT im calm rational and able to deal with these problems. Interstingly enough I find my outlook on life has turned around completly , I used to either hate everyone or love everyone depending on my mood , now I can step back with a clinical detachment and realise what life is ..... and in most cases sadly people and management suck , its every man for himself , and I have simply accepted it.. and am now able to help hubs find a new job that is going to be good for HIM .
Another interesting thing is now I find I have self confidence which I never had before .... im in control .
My 23 year old daughter is a typical yuppie brat , we battled like hell to get her through university ,and now she earns three times what my husband does and she has this tendency to look down her nose at us , and the fact that im taking meds for a mental illness is simply to much for her bear mad ... and im not getting myself into a twist because of her attitude , she was passing remarks the other day about me being on meds , I asked her how much research she has done on bipolar disorder ??? because until she has informed herself she is not entitled to pass remarks or even have an opionion on the subject. devil
Life is good .... yeah   and my relationship with my hubby has improved a LOT. We can even discuss important matters without me being a B&*h and attacking him verbally.

I'm so glad to hear you've got a new outlook on life. When depression lifts things always feel so clear. I hope your daughter does educate herself and come around. How disappointing to not have her support.
