Question ideas?

I have bi-polar and am more trouble with depression lately. I was wondering what ideas anybody has for ways to help this. I am on paxil, lamictal, and synthroid right now. I just need some way to help this depression in addition to this medicine. I am also having a bit more problems with anger to. So, any ideas to help combat that as well would be great.

Re: ideas?

Hi Courtney
Welcome to the board! There are many different things that can be helpful it's just trial and error. Here's some idea's, have you considered checking with your doctor about having your meds adjusted both the antidepressant and mood stabilizer. Myself I found cutting out or cutting down considerabily on sugars, wheat, flours, pasta's and all diary products, really helps me to feel more in control of my moods. Also reducing as much stress as possible, getting plenty of rest and eating right. Of course excercise is suppose to be benificial I not much a excercise fan, but I love a nice refreshing walk. Hope this helps some. Take Care, Sue

Re: ideas?

So your saying that to get out of the depressive state I am now in I have to think of somthing nice and concentrate on that ? And everytime I feel this coming on do the same ? I have been trying and I am finding it really hard to concentrate on the fact that I will be seeing my son all over christmas, it is really hard to do, I have to keep dragging it back to the front of my mind.
