Posted 10-13-2010 at 07:45 AM by Marley1

Hello everyone.

Not sure where to start as I am new at this. Here goes. I have been on antidepressants from about the age of 15! I am now 34 and have been recently diagnosed with Bipolar. I am on citalopram and mirtazipine, but these medications do not change a great deal appart from I feel numb!

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....

Things Seem To Be Looking Up...

Today, I had a really good day. There wasn't anything particularly special that happened (no random kisses or surprise presents), but for the first time in ages, I actually felt like a normal human being. And even better, I've started sketching again, which was something I hadn't been able to do for a very long time.



I think a lot of it has to do with a change in the pills I'm taking. My doctor recently upped my med dosage (so now I'm on 20mg Citalopram) and the...

Living with Bipolar I

Posted 09-02-2010 at 03:42 PM by Flossy66

Not had a good day, as you might've noticed. I got diagnosed with Bipolar I about 6 weeks ago, and while most of my friends and family have been wonderful and understanding, sadly there are those who... well, haven't. And it SUCKS. Big time.



For instance, when I got the news, I had a private conversation with my manager at work. She was wonderful, but one of my colleagues overheard and the next thing you know - POW! Everyone in the office knew and I'm STILL...
