It's been AGES since I've posted on here, but it's been crazy the last couple of months. Got referred to see a psychiatrist after I had a manic episode that got me sectioned for 3 weeks. On the bright side, I feel better now, but my meds are going to be changed. I'm going to start on Lithium, seeing as the anti-depressant I was on isn't really doing much for the mania side of things.

It's also making me feel suicidal, which doesn't exactly help matters much...

I put on a Smile

I feel bad about what I am doing. I put on a smile when all the while I'm runnin' on an emptiness and real feelings I dare not display. I am out of touch and if I could just take a moment I would be able to peek at what is really bothering me. That is the thing, it is not all about me.

I am manic and unable to sort out anything. So why punish and get the guilt trip going? That only allows my head to hang and I have been practicing holding it up. All the bs needs to stop....

Tired of being me

Posted 09-17-2010 at 01:34 PM by Searchin

[[IB][/B]FONT="Trebuchet MS"][/FONT]I am just tired of being me. Whoever that is... I am either depressed, manic, on drugs, off drugs, or a number of other diagnoses. I have never blogged before so I hope I am being appropriate.I guess I just need--what? I do not even know. Encouragement? I am bi-polar. I do not respond to therapy so there is no need to mention that. I miss life. I am stuck here in this house day after day without transportation and my husband just does not see what it...
