I'm new to this forum. I was reading some of the posts and thought maybe I can find the help I'm looking for.. I've been dx'ed with bipolar for about 4 yrs now, I'm on lamitcal and celexa it seems to work well for me, without it i'm an emotional mess. Over the past 2 -3 yrs I have start skin picking, my back is scared, I'll pick till it bleeds and then again as it heals, not sure if it's nerves or stress or what, I've gotten really bad infections from it, but i still do it. What really bothers me the most is I can't remeber things I can read something and forget most of what i just read, some can tell me something but when i go relay it i get it all messed up, I feel stupid like I don't know anything as tho all knowledge went out the window, I never finish anything i set out to do, don't even know how to start it either, i get frustrated a lot! I've been called stupid because of it, I have no drive to do anything anymore, it seems to be affecting my life in a big way, a few yrs ago a dr put me on either Stratra or conterta but it messed with my lamitcal and my moods changed. I hate feeling like this, but i don't know what to do. I hate the feel as though your just here like your floating through life. I want to feel normal again, I want to remember things set goals and complete them, I want to feel as i do know something..
I've been on the medication for 4 yrs now that's when I was dx'ed. the picking has been on and off a good 2-3 yrs now. My dr said I need to see a psych and therapist, I'm reviewing some before I make an appt.View Thread
My son is 9 and was dx'ed at 4 with ADHD, he's been all kinds of meds since then nothing lasted long enough, I just wanted to pull my hair out. A couple of months ago we found out that he was also Dx'ed with bipolar, his meds were changed again, he went from 54mg of Concerta and 30 mg of Abilify 15 in the am 15 in the pm,But he was changed to 30mg of Abilify only at night, seen such a big difference for the good, but after a couple of weeks his grades started to go down he was hyper, could finsh school work, forgetting to bring homework home, no focus at all, not concertration, they added the Concerta back and he's having meltdowns again, school still isn't better, moody, mouthy. I'm just so frustrated and i hate seeing him like this. I don't even know what to do anymore or what meds might help him be better.. He also goes to behavioral counsoling, he has a lot of issues.. He was Dx'ed with EBD" emotional behavioral disorder" he also has global delays... I just need help and to ventView Thread
