Mixed episode

I had an epidural injection on Wed. for bulging disk causing sever leg pain and weakness. First night, no sleep, manic. Last night, slept a few hours. Today at work cried and cried, finally everyone stopped saying "are you ok?" and I closed my office door, turned off lights, cried some more. I am in a position at work where it is necessary for me to be there in order to keep the business open. I have no back up available. I am thinking of going on disability and applying for social security, been there done that many years ago, I thought I was better now. I have 2 days off now. I am in sever chronic physical pain, emotional pain, mental confusion, mania.

Anyone have words of wisdom, I need someone to care about me now.

Re: Mixed episode

I have been where you are. Getting some sleep would be my first suggestion, it's not a cure but it help us think better and are bodies
are able to better tolerate the pain emotional and physcial. You can
go to the ER being it's the weekend you can go to the ER explain
your condition. There are meds that can help you sleep but it would
have to be someone very strong, there are a couple of the psychotic
meds that would work short term until you can get in and see your
reg doctor or p-doc. Pain and the bipolar work agianst each other
I hope you'll consider this and once you get some sleep post back and
let us know how you're doing. Then you can give more thought to
your work situation. Call a friend or family member to take you in,
depending on where you live there are also 24hr medical clinics and
by all means if you dont get the help you need at one place try
another. Sending you a hug, take care and hope to hear back from
you. Sue
