I agree with Dragonfly and Paul! we all have our strengths in a relationship and i am sure there are things you do better than your spouse. My partner and i share our finances but i do the bills so I am basically in charge of the money. This works for us because my partner is the spender not me. I have to reign him in from time to time!  And he is not bipolar! Fortunately money was never my problem when manic however ive done lots of things i am not proud of when i am manic. Thank God i found the right cocktail after years of trying to get it right. I am the most stable i have been in a really long time. anyway I hope you get things sorted!

I agree with Paul completely. You have done what you can to make the situation better by apologizing. Hopefully your pdoc can offer some assistance. You will need to be honest with him about how you are feeling and the incident with your son. I would think coming off lithium can cause withdrawal symptoms and you may need a replacement drug. Like Paul said you have had a lot of stress lately and this maybe the cause of some of your symptoms. I hope things get better for you!

HI All! Thanks for the suggestions! I want to be excited for the move but so far all i can think about is the work that needs to be done. We are downsizing so lots to get rid of! I hope that focusing on packing will take my mind off of my sad feelings. I am scared that it will snow the day we move! I need to take things one day at a time but this is so hard to do. Its so hard to get motivated to do anything. I wish i could hibernate Dragonfly! I am going to see if we can get some help from my family! Its too much! Anyway i am falling down right now. And my partner is not helping he thinks i am just lazy and does not understand this depression i am in causes me to lose all motivation! Hopefully we can get through this winter together!

Feeling the weather and time change already. Feeling sad and blue for no reason. THis should be an exciting time for me with moving and all but no all i feel is sadness. I should be packing but have no motivation to do anything all i want to do is sleep! I hate this time of year and cant wait for spring! Feels like i hold my breath til March now. every year its the same thing. Getting tired of it. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks Dragonfly! They did say we could stop by anytime to see her so we may have to do that soon!

Spirit- i hope everything gets sorted soon for you. You are in my prayers.
I am doing ok- getting ready to move is not fun and of course i am second guessing my decision to move now. I know i will be closer to work but farther away from my parents. i am going to miss them. we also gave our puppy to a friend as the cat hated her and was very mean to her. So i am feeling quite sad and guilty over it plus i miss her like crazy! Fighting the constant anxiety that goes along with bipolar is wearing me down and i just dont know if i can continue. I feel weak right now and stressed out! I feel like running away sometimes! Thats what is going on in my world! I hope everyone else is doing well!

General Discussion / Re: Lamictal and Abilify for Bipolar 2?
« on: October 03, 2014, 05:55:15 am »
I m not on lamactil but i am on abilify and its been a life saver for me. I am more stable now than i have ever been. No more paranoia and my depression has lifted as well 

Glad to hear he is being supportive. As far as a job goes sometimes our mental health has to come first.
