Just to give some background...I've been dx'd as depressed for over 11 years, been admitted to an outpaitent clinic after a break down and went through two weeks of therapy, at one time had a severe drinking problem (don't anymore), have been on just about every ssri there is for depression, recently have been dx'd as bipolar with mixed episodes, have had my meds changed (with mood stabilizers added and deleted) three times in less than four months, in-laws that don't understand the disease at all, my family lives over 900 miles away, do not have any friends, currently am in Christain counseling and have finally found a good pdoc. I've been on quite a rollercoaster recently and just haven't been able to to "pull myself up by the bootstraps" as some would like to think that I can.
