Hi All. I know i disapeared there for quite a while. Things in my life got really busy, and I have been doing great - so I lost track of HealingWell. How sad...:(.
Anyway, just a quick question for any/all of you.
I am engaged to be married in two and a hlaf months - very excited. However, also somewhat scared. I am becoming concerned that this huge change - moving to another state, being more independant, being married (complete change of status), new job, new doctors, new everything...will possibly trigger an episode in me - especially afriad of depression with this one. So i guess my question is if any of you have opinions regarding if a BPII would be more susceptable to these things, and what you might suggest in prevention to that and in regards to that.
I have informed my fiance of all this, and plan to have a Pdoc and therapist set up there before i move out and all that jazz - but if any of you have any further suggestions or comments - im sure it would help ease my mind a bit. The last thing i want is a tailspin at this point. Im doing so well! :)
Thanks for all your help!

Wow Reesa,  That is great congratulations!

It seems that you have put a lot of thought into this and are aware that moving and the stress could be a potential trigger for you.  I would just suggest that you ensure your current doctors have forwarded your medical records to your new docs, so there is no confusion on your medications or diagnosis and past treatments.  Also, be sure that you have plenty of refills of your meds.

Otherwise, just take it a day at a time.  Try not to stress too much and you should be okay.  Keep in touch.....

Congrats Reesa,
I've personally found that if its a situation I'm looking forward to I'm less likely to react negatively. Maybe a little hypomania but not always. Good luck to you hon.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.
