Hi fast1,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. I hope we can be all those things for you. I believe we do okay.

Are you seeing a psych? On meds? In therapy? All that good stuff... How's it working for you?

Thanks for the response. I am seeing a psych dr. and a social worker, so i am working hard on the therapy end.
I am on alot of meds: Lithum, Abilify, Lamictal, seriquel. i was on celexa but that made me fast again. I see my psych dr. today i want to get of some meds, i would like to be on just 1 Lithum, it seem to work the best. i got a hypoactive thyroid from it and now on meds for that. i still have alot of fear, anxioty, and depression. i just want to be my old self, i just don't feel right.

Hi Fast1,

Real fast...welcome aboard!  lol

Hang in there with the medication dosages.  Things will eventually level out but it takes persistance.  Good for you for working hard and staying involved with your therapy.  That is least for me.

See ya around. smilewinkgrin
