Hello everyone,
I usually post on the bp board, but I have been extremely depressed for several weeks now, and I just need to vent here today.
I have been off bipolar meds for over a year now, and today I am starting to go back on one (Lamictal).  Things have just been getting out of control, especially with my depressive episodes.
I am struggling bigtime.  I am barely able to stand being at school right now.  I am exhausted.  I can't function, or concentrate.  Usually my moods are all over the place...So I don't stay too depressed for too long, but recently that hasn't been the case.
I am wanting to cope through this.  But it's been a long time since the depression has "disabled" me so much.  I feel like I can't do anything.  I just don't know how to cope when it's this bad. 
Anyway, I do have to get ready for school...If it wasn't necessary for me to go today, I would not be going.  Thanks for reading.

Hi Mogs,

Im sorry to hear that you are in a depressive 'rut' at the moment. Hopefully the Lamictal will help to sort that out, but remember it can take 4-6 weeks to take full effect. Do your teachers know that there is a problem? Perhaps if they knew the would be able to adapt to meet your needs. I hope everything goes well at school today.

Keep talking
