Hello guys! Just wanted to check in with my second family.
Well I’m not going to go into details but I had some pretty bad mood fluctuations during the past 3 days. Ended up destroying myself and other things. It seems that Effexor never worked for me because I was always depressed and hypomanic still. Abilify works like a charm for the voices.
So my pdoc prescribed me Lithium for a change since I’ve tried 4 other antidepressants that never worked. I was diagnosed schizoaffective bipolar type last year but was never in a mood stabilizer because I had more depressive episodes.
I’m kind of scared to try it though. I hear it’s a pretty tough med what with all the blood tests and risk of toxicity. But I’m hoping I can find a stable ground without going up and down.
Also, I’m proud to announce that right now, at this moment, I am starting my caffeine detoxification. I’ve had a dependence on it since my eating disorder began. I talked to my therapist to make a plan for it. I’m pretty confident in this.
Lastly, I’m still struggling with meals. It’s difficult to take Ensure Plus because of obsessive thinking. Anyway, how are y’all doing?
