Obsessed?????

Hey all ...... Just need to ask a question....

Ok i started taking some classes a couple of weeks ago and i have been so obsessed with homework and studying...... It's like i don't want to do anything else...My house is a mess and the clothes are piled up...... I don't miss doing the laundry though..... I just don't understand how i can go from hating high school, always laying out and sleeping all the time, to being obsessed with it.....School has takin over my life. I know it's not a bad thing that im actually doing good at something I just don't understand how it happened.....
Also my doc just upped my meds to twice as much as i am taking now.... Does anyone think that my meds will afect the way i perform in school??? And i know this is way off the subject but on rock star INXS last night jordis rocked the house anyone else agree???

Hi Babygrl,

Just wanted to say hi and say I've had that happen too, the crazy obsessions! Just be glad your's is a worthy one and hopefully it will last a long time. LOL. Much better to keep to studies than do laundry I would say. When on a high with lots of energy, I would focus on one thing and grind away at it until it was perfect, no matter what the project was. Everything else would fall by the wayside. So definitely know what you mean...So possibly yours is a mood high/high energy time or due to the doubled meds. Just a guess.

Sorry, have no idea about the meds and school, though so far looks like it would fall on the positive side! And as far as the rock star INXS, ermmm....I'm old. LOL. Haven't watched it. Enjoy girl!

Re: Obsessed?????

Hi Jessi,

I was first diagnosed with depression about 7 years ago and was treated for that long before the bipolar came out. That was only diagnosed about 2 years ago. I had symptoms long before that of course. I can relate things back to about the age of 17. Mine is classified as Bipolar II by my current pdoc, though long story short, I retrieved my old records from another doctor and there are some symptoms suggestive of schizoaffective disorder. I have researched this a bit, similiar to bipolar II but with a few different characteristics and hard to diagnose. But I have decided that the label doesn't matter, the treatments are pretty much the same so will concentrate on that.

I have been on many different meds--Prozac, Zyprexa, Effexor, Depakote, Lithium to name a few. I have found, like I'm sure many others have, that a cocktail works best for me (med mix). Currently I am on an anti-D, so yes, I am like a classic Bipolar II where a constant Anti-D is best for me. I am on Wellbutrin 400 mg. I also take Topamax 150 mg. for mood stabilization. My doc wanted me on Lamictal as well but I had a bad reaction to it. We're sort of waiting to see how i do just on these two. I also take Seroquel to sleep, just 25 mg.

Coping....well....I am actually doing okay presently. I work full time from home and am raising two young boys. If you asked me that last year though, I would have said, "Not coping well at all!" Meds help me very much.

There ya go....Guess you weren't expecting a novel, were ya? But ya got one. LOL

Angel

Hi Princess, no, it's not the XL, just the plain Wellbutrin (Bupropion). I was originally on XL.
