I've noticed a lot of my regulars have been pretty quiet the past couple weeks. I hope everything is okay for everyone. I thought we'd try a roll call to check up on everyone. Post your name and how you're feeling, with a line or two about what's going on with you. Everyone please. smurf

I'll start.

My new meds are keeping me pretty steady and out of depression for which I am deeply grateful. I'm unhappy in my current job though, and looking for something else, which can be a little stressful. We're planning on doing a lot of traveling this summer.

Hi all! I guess I’ve been doing okay. I had to up my trileptal since I was getting more irritable than I could handle. That worked out well for about 4 weeks. Lately it seems I’m starting to get irritable again along with bouts of sadness. I may need to go on an even higher dosage? I’ll see my pdoc on the 16th and see what he thinks.

OK. i'm vertical instead of horrizontal and didn't see my name in the obits today so i guess i'm alive. not necessarily living, but alive and sentient. my chronic back pain is feeling better and my wife and i are starting to get involved in the local community here in alabama. still having manic episodes occationally, but depression is still my main modality.

hope everyone is well and happy.

Hey. I have been checking in on others. I haven't posted about myself much because I have started suffering from migraines thanks to my pregnancy. I only had one with my first pregnancy. I started getting one last Wednesday and by Friday my dad took me to the doctor. After two shots and two prescriptions, I felt better Saturday afternoon. But then yesterday, I got another one. Luckily, my mom was able to come and take care of my baby so I could hibernate in my darkened bedroom. I taped the shades to the wall to help darken the room. I feel better today. I took the medicine every four hours and last night my dh took care of our baby when she would waken in the middle of the night. So I got some rest. My doctor said that the hormones are causing the migraines along with being off my bipolar medicine. It is estrogen and serotonin levels that fluctuate causing your blood vessels in the brain to constict and then dilate quickly causing the headaches. Plus I am diabetic and blood sugar levels can add to it too. Anyway, that is what is going on with me. Hope everyone is having a good day.

I have been keeping up, reading posts now and then when I have time to get on the computer.  I am doing good now but had a bad May.  I was struggling with depression and irratibility.  2 weeks ago my dr. doubled my zoloft and now I can say I feel back to normal.  We have just been busy around here now that school is out...with 3 active daughters there is always something happening.  I start an online class next week, so I should be able to check in more.  My oldest got a lead part in our local theaters' play for the summer....Little Mermaid and she will be Ariel!  So ....driving her to practice 5 days a week (with these gas prices) will be lots of fun   :)

I hope everyone else is doing well, I think of you often.

I've been really battling lately.  Deep, desperate bouts of depression, and struggling with a ton of irritability.  May call pdoc this week to up my Lamictal.  Work was going great, except that the other receptionist I work with everyday is trying to get me fired mad   It's definitely a stressor to say the least.  I am trying to do my very best, but I have since started looking for another job.  I can't believe I just started my new career (and have worked so hard to get here) all for some awful person to try and take it all away from me. 

Bf and I are hanging it there, but it's been really tough.  We're actually going to see if we can get approved to buy a house this week.  I still find myself very confused about us...But I do need a roof over my head!

Anyway, it was really nice to read updates on all of you.  You're all in my thoughts and I hope to come on here more for the next little while to help me cope.  HW is my best support.  Hugs & love, Mogs

Dutchie and I are still working on things. She is about half way through her schooling and is doing extremely well. In the first semester she was top in her class and had a 4.0 gpa. Over the last few weeks she has had 3 job offers. She accepted one and will be starting there part time tomorrow.
Relationship wise it's not great. Probably because of me. I have been on depression meds for about 6 months now and expected them to have a different affect. I had thoughts that it would kind of make everything better but in reality it hasn't. I have made a commitment to stay because of the girls but I wish in my heart I really wanted to.
Keep working hard Mogs, be proud of your accomplishments and work towards the stable and good relationship that you deserve.

It's good to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear things aren't turning out like you planned. You sound proud of Dutchie, despite everything else. Pass on our good wishes as well. Take care of yourself and keep on working. We haven't forgotten you!

I'm here, I have just been having a really bad week, month.  I want to post sometimes but then I don't feel like it.  I will try to get back in here more often.

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!
