hi all been suffering from and living with massive mania. have had persistant diarreeah for over 3 weeks now. has stopped at this moment-so that is good. have had a lot of good friends around-almost a tad too much. i have been helping one mate with a serious issue as well. it has been 15 days since i have smoked a ciggarette. yeah still climb the walls a bit-but it is slowly getting there. seen mum and the boys last w/e. my bro is doing real well.....as is the other with his studies. mum is still kicking and is busy doing some return to work training. i have had some triggers that have caused me emmense personal pain. have been focusing hard on my studies. my psychiatrist has wrote a letter to the training provider if i need to defer. my sleep study is next week. my psychiatrist and i have decreased the seroquel to 450mg at night.he agrees that i should continue to taper and be rid of it once and for all. i have lost some weight already. this pleases me. am very depressed but am getting on with it. so if you don't see me around you will know it is purely because i am extremely busy. had a very good session with my therapist and i maybe doing a clinical trial with a known hospital and university. will have a look when i get the chance. one day at a time guys. that is my motto. focus on the here and now and to beleive in ourselves. beleive in you guys, i certainly do. i also want to thank you all for your continued support of me as well. i love you all!!!
 
with much healing compassionate hugs. jamie

Jamiee, Don't know your background of course but I won't read back. Just go from here. My first question is have you got no drugs to prevent mania at all? I guess you've tried them all by now. I know Seroquel is supposed to help with bp but I'm not sure if it's a mood stabiliser or not. Obviously not helping you if it is, right?
 
How do you get relief from the highs and what happens when you crash, assuming you do?

Jamie:  You're right, you may crash, but I've never seen anyone else so strong and good about forcing himself to get up and try all over again.  I'm praying that once the Seroquel is out of your system the Dr. will find another drug that will help.  Keep hanging in there!
