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.

A Relief

Well, my church knows, the church I was to go to knows and it's common knowledge. I don't discuss the bipolar aspect too much, but hope to do so as time goes on. If I can get disability, I should be able to stay on it until I reach retirement age. Sorry, but I seem to have a miind tonight that isn't working so well. Don't give up on me. I'll be back soon. Mike
