Hello all. My username is tyno3. I fall into a multitude of Foruns. I'm diagnosed as BiPolar since 1990. I can't stay with anything for very long. Relationships are short, I do things to push people away. I'm most comfortable curled up in a fetal position, alone. My employment history is very choppy, I always thought it was my personality. I either couldn't show up at all, or I'd break out in tears over silly things. It's been a very choppy life. When I'm up, rarely, but still, agitated, anxious and irritable. It 's a really uncomfortable place to be. Being down is kinda like an old friend, just me and my sadness. I'm not really on meds right now. I take 100mgs. of amyltriptilene at bedtime in order to sleep. The SSRI's stopped working after about five years. Mood stabilizers, I can't tolerate the side effects. I also have a chronic pain problem, an autoimmune disorder, migraines, Irritable bowel, and possibly Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I think my Limbic system is royally messed up.Anyone else got this combo? Thank's bye for now.
