Welcome to our group. You were a little vague in your desription of her condition. Has she actually been diagnosed with this, or just thinks she has it? Is she on any kind of medications for it & on any kind of treatment plan such as counseling, therapy, & meeting with a psychiatrist. How long have you two been together? If you read a up on a lot of the posts you can see the kind of stuff to watch for & things that go on with someone with this condition. They biggest key to this condition is the right medication(s) & following the doctors advice with the treatment plan.
Stay in touch
Sorry I didnt read other posts first. I do not have the time this week. Im working tons of OT. So, between that and vising my fiance (Ill care her K) in the hospital, its been a crazy week.
K was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder many years ago. She has been regluated by her meds ever since. Of course she has had a few eposides on either end of the scale. She meets regularily with a meds coordinater.
K and I have been together a little over a year. In that time this is the first major mood swing she has had. She did have a minor swing towards depression last summer, which she had to scale back her hours at work.
She is on several medications. She has at least 2 or 3 for controlling the mood swings. earlier this month her Dr. told her she could try to slowly come off one of them (cant remember the name of which one). She wanted to see if she would be able to get off any of them, so she could get pregant later this year or next. I think that between that and the stress of going back to college and planning our wedding helped trigger this attach for her.
Anyway she know she needs to stay on the meds.
any comments are much appreciated, Thanks!
