been up almost 2 days. slept this arvo. seen the
public shrink, wow, he was fantastic. i had an hr and
a half with him. he has been there 5 yrs, usually at my
facility 6 months is the norm. he said he does things
differently from the old days, of which i discussed
with him. and other clients from the old days have
told him the same. he was very attentive and
listened. i was crashing, and very, very tired. we
discussed my sutuation, and he beleives that my
dx of bi-polar has rolled on from the lessening
borderline traits. more mood swings and mania.
so he told me everything about lithium, and that it is
a long term medication. i will go off the cymbalta after
about a month, providing the lithium levels are in
range. lots of blood tests, due to toxicity and moreso
to the kidney. ah, karen, yes going back on abilify.
yeah!!!!! since this is a differential dx he will make
it so that i can obtain it. i asked about abilify and that
it really helped me with my thought processes, focus
and with scrambled thoughts. i said i did very well
on it when it was prescribed, i said my gp could not
prescribe it on my current dx. so good. and the shrink
confirmed that is a very effective combo.
will try to see my gp over the w/e. would like to start
on the new meds asap. okay, long couple of days. thx
4 caring. luv 2 you all. jamie.
ps, bob is in aged rehab at the moment.
