Hi guys. Pursueded my 2 yr old to jump on my bed to check in. What's a pdoc? A Psychiatrist? Yup, for going on 5 months, he just upped my depakote, and wants me to take 3 kolonopin a day, but they mess me up. I can't even move and with my 3 toddlers I gotta keep going. It's a matter of a very fragile balance, I am
juggling so much stuff. But I do see my dr.on the 19th, so I am definately going to bring up the weight gain and the darkness I can feel is looming just out of sight.
I am going to look for a slimmer group next time I'm online...sometimes the obvious is not so obvious. lol.
I've heard good things about wellbutrin. My dr said he wants to get ahold of my manic highs first. He sent me to CBT, (cognitive behavioural therapy) for the depressive episodes, and clinical depression. Forgive me if I sound ignorant about bpd. I am still struggling to understand all of the terms of bpd, and I am adjusting to the recent diagnosis. Oh, thank you all for the support, and understanding. I have to face the world today and get out of my pajamas, brush my hair and teeth, and live.
