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.

After nearly one year since Connie's stroke, and nearly one year of working with her through recovery therapy, I am just about emotionally spent. I am happy that my bipo has been held at bay for that amount of tim, but I think that has been stretched just about as far as it can.

I hope I am making myself clear, although I am not so sure. It isn't that I don't want to help, I don't know if I'll be able to. I can startto feel the unravelling process begin. Things have to change, but in time? I don't know.
