bi-polar with severe anorexia/bulimia and obsessive/compulsive disorder. Interesting. He also said all the docs that have given me anti-depressants over the years to *treat* the depression were just making it worse because they had misdiagnosed me. So he is putting me on a mood stabilizer, upping the anti depressant and also increasing my Topamax.

I'll post more later. I'm still trying to digest everything that happened today.

I actually JUST read this on the mood disorder board...LOL...

I can tell you...I was scared to start taking the mood stabilizer. But after 4 weeks on,I am in much better spirits. Of course,I have my moments...but I havent been yelling as much,or getting so flustered I cant think. I have also been letting things GO,and not getting as angry. I havent heard Emily say ONE TIME "where's my REAL Mommy"...and thats a GOOD feeling!

So I have high hopes for you and starting your new meds! I just know this will make you start feeling better. I know where you were,the place in your mind. Been there and it's scary! I'm glad you were able to get the help you need. Do you know the name of the stabilizer they put you on? I'm taking Lamictal....almost at the 100mg dose(gotta take it slow,so it doesnt cause head to toe rash )

I have so much more to say...but we are headed out to the movies with Emily. I will post back later this evening...

Nichole,Mommy to Emily and Ryan
