Hey every1 havn't posted for awhile thought i wud let u kno whts going on.
I dont wana go into too much detail coz it wil prob break forum rules.
Basically my mum went into hospital for a week or so.. at the time i was on holiday and got really annoyed by exgirlfriend. Did something alittle stupid that ment i ran outta meds forthis month. I spent 1 week off meds n i felt really gud for it. Ive started taking meds again bt im weaning myself bak on to them so only on small dose. I still feel quite gud.
The thing for whteva reason being off meds has really help blance my moods n im started to make plans for the future (i hav hope now) im quitting my job in london n am looking for work neaer to home. I hope these good changes continue. Life so much better when u dnt kno how its gona turn out n u got things to look forward too. Like i said im stil takin meds if i start getting mood swings n stuf again im going to doc n saying the meds r def making me bipolar can i hav mood stabiliser pls.
p.s my mum is fine and is outta hospital now

Wow - all of that is really positive news! I'm thrilled that you're feeling hopeful about life!

So glad your mother is fine too. Do keep a close eye on how you're feeling as you adjust to your lower meds. It might also be a good idea just to call up your doctor and let them know you've changed dosages, for their records.

Big hugs to you, my friend!

Ditto to what Percy has posted.  I am glad you are in a good place but be very careful with adjusting your meds on your own.

Remember it takes 4-6 weeks for the meds to kick in and it takes time for them to clear your system too.  Do talk with your physician and be sure if your moving you choose a new physician so you have someone who knows your medical history and can guide you.

I am very happy your Mom is out of the hospital.  Hugs to Mom.
