Im back to sleeping now and now find myself with a new issue. It seems I find myself getting angry at things. I just dont have the patience like I use to. Im afraid this is how I may stay. I just try to not let it get the best of me. Im getting jealous and upset about things my husband does or doesnt do or people who do things to him whether they are flirting or not. Like my sister in law telling him to shut the...up. I was like what. I walked away. NOrmally I would just ignore it and let it go because she is always joking around wihether she is cussing or not but lately i find her annoying and cant stand her. I get upset when my husband acts a certain way towards a woman and analyze it like why doesnt he do that for me or smile like that around me. It is getting on my nerves that all of the sudden Im this way. WHy? Im going to see my therapist in two weeks so i know he was saying I might need a mood stabilizer and Im starting to think so. Im flying off the handle for things that really are not that bad and I will be mad all day. What is wrong with me? I was never like this. I wish i was just normal.

Hi Want to be,

Yes it does sound like you need a mood stabilizer, I take one and it did wonders for me. I take abilify. There is also risperdol, but that can cause weight gain. I hope that you can find one that works for you.

Good luck, and keep posting,

I am sorry to hear of your new sx but I agree with your physician, a mood stabilizer may be a good choice and there are some good ones available.  Sometimes you have to try more then one to hit the right one for you.

Keep posting and remember you have depression, and you will be ok so don't beat yourself up.
