I have a pretty intense job, and some family issues, as well as dealing with
the clutter, anger problems, and all that seem to go along with this disorder
they call bipolar. Sometimes I feel it is just too much, but I always seem
to trudge along. I have this excessive need to keep going no matter what.
If its going 80 miles per hour on the highway or keeping my boss happy.
I also have this phobia of bugs, and seem to be seeing them, when I can't
really tell if their there or not. I don't want to tell my doctor because I don't
want him to put me on something else. I already have gained 60 lbs on some
other medication and don't like the side affects. Any thoughts.

Re: Struggling

Have you considered telling your doctor you dont feel the med you're on is working as well as you like and you would like to try something that doesnt cause weight gain, as you cant afford to gain any more weight.

Maybe you're mood stabilizer needs adjustment or changing if your still having anger problems and the need to go 80 mph. Im sure you've probably already thought of these things but sometimes it helps to have others opinions. Take Care of yourself and Good Luck, K
