So I mentioned in another thread that I've been dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts. I had a short break from it Friday, and then back again. Bad. SI'ing today trying to cope. Talking to my SO trying to sort things out. I think I just scared him.

Then suddenly, randomly, I'm fine. Like nothing ever happened. I'm reeling from the sudden changes, and I can't imagine how my SO is handling this.

I'm basically off meds right now. I'm supposed to be on Lamictal 25 mg, but I forget to take it more often than not. nono

(Sorry for the edit -- can't discuss SI due to forum rule #1. -- serafena)

You really need to take those meds. You're probably making yourself WORSE by taking it part of the time. What can you do to help yourself remember?

Hey there, i take my meds every night before bed. With as forgetfull as i am (UMM What were talking about????? shocked) I have somehow managed to keep on an almost reg sceadual. I start to rapid cycle really quickly and thats not good for anyone. If need be i get up at 2 in the morning when i remember that i havn't taken my meds.

My SO suggested putting an alarm clock in the kitchen and setting it for the evening.  I think it is a good idea.  It would get me started on training the dog to remind me in the evening too.  He wakes me up in the morning and does his medication reminder thing and THEN I remember that I forgot to take it the night before.  ...  rolleyes
My SO agreed to go to a therapy session with me, so I hope that will help him.  I'm doing just fine now.  It's a matter of how long "just fine" lasts!!
