Riding the Wave ... And the Trough

I am mentally ill, diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder I, OCD, ADHD, PTSD and a vitamin B12 deficiency (a key element in brain development). For over 12 years, I took anywhere from 5-8 psychotropic meds each day, and have been recently giving myself a monthly injection of B12.

In January 2012 I was hospitalized for depression, and management of my currrent med cocktail. Immediately all but two of my meds were discontinued and, after a few weeks of adjustment, and some near hospitalizations, things seem to be going much better.

I have been on permanent disability since January 2010, and am adjusting to life on a very limited income.

My prayer is that in walking with me during the ups and downs of Bipolar Disorder, you might find solace, and benefit through my experiences.

What To Do ... What To Do ... What To Do ...

A big decision is about to be made and, if you know my track record and that I was the principle to make it, you'd question whatever decision I made. Hell, so would I. But this is one of those times that requires a decision that can't be reversed. I've made many bad decisions in my life, but this one feels right; of ourse, they didd, too.

With Connie's health problems, and her misery in dealing with the cold, snow and dreariness of an Indiana winter, it has become necessary for us to relocate to warmer climes. When we sell our house, we'll be able to use the equity to buy a place in a retirement in Florida Most come furnished with the previous occupants furniture, so taking furniture of our isn't necessary; we can replace with what we want when we get around to it.

This will be a crucial part of her therapy and recovery. Please keep us in your prayers.
