I am also newly diagnosed and experiance alot of the same problems, dont give up. You will have to keep changing meds to find the right ones.
Do you go to therapy maybe your husband can go to one of your appt.'s or do some research to learn about bipolar. my husband and I sat down together and researched and read other peoples experiences, which was also hard for me to read. I too say horrible things that just come out of no were and my husband thinks I dont love him im not atttracted to him. but he see that I am trying to work hard on fixing things with thereapy meds and other things. We both have also realized I am going to have ups and downs and to enjoy the ups and those good days together.
Its a rough road I have lost alot of jobs and alot of friends I avoid alot of the things I used to enjoy. And Just hope one day when I find the right meds I will be ok enough to find a good steady job and have a enjoyable social life again. I hope to be the mom I want to be.
I hope the same for you dont give up and the best to you and your husband.View Thread

Thanks Debbie. I went to my doc. today and we decided to up the anti depresent that I am currintly on because I am on the lowest dose and have been on them for over a year. So im crossing my fingers and hope it helps.
What types of medications are there other then benzo's which I just looked up and im on clonazepam is that a benzo it wasnt on the list I looked at if it is my doctor refuses to up it or put me on anything stronger.View Thread
Thanks... yeah just being honest but we will see how long it last last night-nothing. He says I have to ask him, my god im not his mother im his wife if I wanted three kids I wouldnt have had my tubes tied...I am trying to stay positive cause everybody says I am always so negative but really I dont have a very positive life. Any ways I think hes trying we will see nobody is perfect everyday. Its one of my triggers to watch him sleep on the couch if you want to sleep dont rub it in my face while im running around taking care of the house and the kids go to bed!View Thread
AHH...I have quit taking a medication by weening off of it and it was the worst time of my life!! I would never recomend cold turkey to any one, so take Dr. Goldberg's advice. Good luck to you and I wish you the best.View Thread
I think the president should take a look at how people with mental dissorders are treated or lack there of. Maybe if they fixed our health care sittuation and foccused more on helping the large population of americans with mental dissorders who are un able to work, get proper meds, see a therapist and see how much that would help our ecconomy. I for one was turned away by the er after trying to commit suicide two years ago for not having insurance I couldnt work because I couldnt get the medication I needed " by the way never wanted to harm any body!" but I could have been helped if there was medical out there. So my point is help people not take more away and do not judge people you think he would be the last to judge being the first black president.View Thread
I have been talking to my doc. about changing back to paxil and about a year and a half ago I quit after 8 years of being on it and it was the worst thing I have ever experienced. But it helped my anxiety I decided to get off of it because it made me numb, tired and always in pain. I was on 20mg. with no other meds was not yet diagnosed. My doc. suggested that I try it again just at the lowest dose with my other meds. to see if it will help control my anxiety. I am conflicted about what to do becasue I finally have lost weight and can wake up in the morning and my body aches have gone away, but if if a lower dose does not cause those side affects then it would be awsome! But the withdrawls were so savier and lasted two months I tried to commit suiced was locked in my room vomitting...im sure you all have heard about the side affects they were bad enough im scared to try that medication again so im at a stand still of what to do?View Thread
