"Does this sound like the correct diagnosis.."
....because it takes Folks,like Ya,ll,to get the BEST advice from on this topic:those who LIVE WITH BP!!
Short and sweet,Wifey has dealt with Migraines for the past 10-11 years,taken 1-2 dozen different Meds,until her Neuro settled on Topomax,Lamactil,Imipramine,Propranolol, and Imitrex.She has declined in stamina and endurance,stays less"smiley" more and more,feels NOTHING for me anymore,sexually,has gained 60-70 lbs.,and is an emotional rollercoaster.
She can be all sweet and easy one evening when I get in from work,the next evening,she might have a scowl on her face.She told me when we were engaged to watch out for her"Mood-Swings",as she put it.She sure had them,too,as the next 18 years proved.We endured 7 seperations,a 15 and a 9 yr. old girl,and "Ridin' the Coaster"all the while.When we were dating and engaged,she gave me the most fantastic Sex-Life I could stan!After our first was born,I ceased to exist.I had to beg her to go out ,just us 2.We've been to countless Counselors and stuff,but none worked.
To end this,I must add these facts:Today,Wifey let me become aware that her Dr. had diagnosed her with Bi-Polar,actually several weeks ago,she just "did'nt think to tell me".
Now,do you guys think she may be BP?I sure need to hear some solid opinions and info,from those that experience life with BP.Thanks,Jack Saturn
