I dont get me anymore. I dont fully understand my Bi-Polar diagnosis. The Dr that DX me is no longer with the practice and I have yet to see my new doctor(although I have canceled two appts). No one has really explaine dhow I will feel,what to look for...behaviors I may have,etc...

Well,this week has been really hard on me. I havent felt great and my energy level is just shot. I dont even have the energy to shower. I do it...but it's a dailey struggle.

I am getting upset and crying over silly things. I feel like people are "picking" on me and when I mention it,I am told I am being over sensitive. Maybe I am...who knows.

I wonder if this is the depression side of my bi-polar...I'm so confused.

Yes, yes, and yes. This could very well be the depression side of your bipolar. I am going through the exact same thing right now. Please make an appt to see the doc. I just saw mine yesterday and he switched me to a new anti-depressant that is also an anti-psychotic. Apparently my old anti-depressant wasn't doing the trick. I've gotten to where nothing is fun anymore, I don't want to get out of bed to take a shower, don't want to cook dinner, all I want to do is sleep, and that is just not me. I am usually a very bubbly and happy person. I like the manic side of bi-poloar, and I am just not in it right now, and all I want to do right now is cry. That's no fun!!

Please, please make an appt for as soon as you can. I promise there is an upside, and no one wants you to feel miserable, especially me, honey!!

Well,I had an appointment with my therapist today-the one that rx my meds. I had to cancel again...and not by my chose this time! My Mom also had an appointment at the same time and she couldnt watch the kids. I dont have anyone else...so I canceled. I cant get in until August 9th. that seems so far away! I am the same way. I am literally being forced to shower and dress. Yesterday my Mom bribed me to get ready and we would shop for Emily's school clothes. So,I did and we had a great day! We went to like 4 different stores and found super cute clothes. But the minute I got home,I ran upstairs to put my jammies back on.

I need to have my sleep aid changed,I think...It's taking me so long to get tired anymore! I am taking it at 7pm,before the kids are even in bed and I still dont get tired until 11pm or after! Thats NOT right!! I am exhausted in the morning,before I even get out of bed. I want to sleep all day long,but cant. I force myself out of bed...but it takes me probaly 20 minutes to convince myself that YES,Ryan really IS calling for me from his bed.

It seems like it was just a couple of weeks ago that I was a million miles an hour,chat chat chat...wanting to visit friends/family...get out of the house...swimming in the pool,etc...now I just want to mold into my couch.

When I get like this,I tend to slow down online as well,because I dont want to come across as a depressed person. I really am nice

That's exactly the way I was. About 2 weeks to a month ago I was nonstop go go go all the time, and I couldn't sleep from being so hyper. Now it's all I can do to crawl out of bed in the mornings, and I've been late for work every day this week. (thankfully they are VERY understanding!) I just started the new antidepressant last night, so hopefully it will help, and funny that today I already feel better. I know that it takes more than a day to start working, but maybe it's just knowing that I am taking something different?? Who knows? Anyway, August 8th is only 2 weeks away, honey. I'll just make you laugh until then!! LOL
