I am so sorry that you are going through this. I am brand new to this forum and new to the diagnosis of bipolar 2 (maybe since I don't have any hypomania). I want to offer support because it is what gets us through. I understand about not being able to get your mind off something. That happens to me, obsessing about something that I don't want to think about. I am also on lamictal but I have not had any relief from it except that I can get out of bed in the morning. It is hard when the meds don't work. I had faith that they would.View Thread
