I have removed the "Sticky" from this topic...I cannot moderate this topic and it seems to have lost appeal.

My holidays were pretty awesome! I had an early Christmas gift: twin nephews born Dec 9. Their birth kinda jolted me out of my spiral downwards. It's hard to hold a newborn and be in a bad mood! Altho, I have only held 1 of my nephews. I can't seem to get Corbin at all. I have only held Zeke. They are almost 3 weeks old now! I can't wait to see them again.

Then, on Christmas day, I went to my parents and the day after Christmas I got to see my other nieces and nephews and found out that my little sister is pregnant with number 4!!!

BEEKAHBUG - I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Stop in and let us know how you are doing!

My moods have been a little out of the ordinary, up & down, up & down. I did see my psych dr and she adjusted my meds. We think it is seasonal so we are going to watch and maybe revisit it in the spring, seeing how the winter goes. It's been kind of rapid cycling, up for 2 weeks, down for 2, up for 3 weeks, down for 4. Not rapid like daily, but continuous for me. I'm just getting back into an upswing now. Excitement for the holidays, new fitbit for hubby and me so we will be working together to get fit. I do like the up times. I am very blessed that I had a milder form of mania so I don't get out of control. I did have some spending issues getting caught up in holiday shopping I went a bit overboard. I am working on setting a new budget for the new year so hopefully that will help. Lots of plans to get organized, the house finished, get fit and healthy. I'm excited to start the new year off right.

What are your plans for the new year?

I just quickly spiraled downward. I was at church yesterday, and the pastor said some things that really resonated with me. But, having grown up in a cult, it is difficult to replace the old thoughts with what he said yesterday. I ended up cutting at lunch today and have only eaten breakfast and a handful of crackers today. That is probably all I will eat. Still kinda reeling here. If you wanna know more, check out the 2 blogs I wrote yesterday.

It sounds like you are adjusting well to the major changes of the past few months. I am glad you have a new job you love! That helps a lot!

Folks who know me were very surprised with my OCD diagnosis too.

I have a relatively new diagnosis of Bipolar 1. This happened back in September. Before that, I was diagnosed with major depression, anxiety, and OCD. Which, if you looked at my house you would not think OCD. But, they said I had more of the obsessive thinking than the compulsions.

I went through some major changes a few months ago. I'm starting to get into a routine tho. I have a new job, new place to live, new location, new church, new providers, etc. We moved from west central Ohio to southeastern Ohio. So, we moved about 3 hours away. But, we're closer to family here. I love it in this area and my new job! It is so much easier than my other job. I didn't realize how stressful my other job was until I came here.

Mama Judy, I have a friend who has what you have. I know from interacting with her, that it is sometimes difficult to help someone in this situation. My prayers go with you as you deal with this illness, and make the transition to living in one of your family's homes. May they be extremely understanding and helpful to you. Stay on your meds, and thank you for trusting us with this info. We are here to support one another.
It has been a blessing to have you join our team. God bless you.

I was misdiagnosed years ago as what they then called Manic Depression (now Bipolar) But that is not my problem, well, sort of. But I have Schizoaffective Disorder. If you don't know what that is, I am pasting the definition below. It often goes along with Bipolar, as with me. There are times when things don't seem real and that is when I have to hold tightly to the Lord. But I try to not let others know. This is the first time I have told anyone on Sparks. This team is very important to all of us.

Schizoaffective disorder is a condition in which a person experiences a combination of schizophrenia symptoms such as hallucinations or delusions and mood disorder symptoms, such as mania or depression.

Schizoaffective disorder is not as well understood or well defined as other mental health conditions. This is largely because schizoaffective disorder is a mix of mental health conditions ― including schizophrenic and mood disorder features ― that may run a unique course in each affected person.

Untreated, people with schizoaffective disorder may lead lonely lives and have trouble holding down a job or attending school. Or, they may rely heavily on family or live in supported living environments, such as group homes. Treatment can help manage symptoms and improve the quality of life for people with schizoaffective disorder.

I can so easily relate to filling my mind with useless things. God does want us to turn to Him. I'll be praying that we both can make progress in this area.

Gonna send a private message to Cora. Tonight I am taking advantage of all of the threads on the team. I am thankful for you all. It will take a while for me to get back to where I was 16 months ago. I lost my drive and I want to get it back. I have, as Cora said been using a lot of time spending endless minutes wasting time on mindless games trying to empty my mind. God is not happy with that, and wants me to fill it with His Word. I am making a commitment to spend more time in the Word, spending time in prayer, Working on Spiritual side, then get to my physical.

emoticon Cora! I am so glad you found us. I can so relate to what you wrote. I have bipolar spectrum disorder (mostly depression) with anxiety as well. Plus I have a 10yr old son, 8 yr old daughter, and 7 yr old son.

I am so sorry to read that you are having a down episode right now. Are you seeing a counselor or psych dr? Are you on any medications? I will be lifting you in prayer.

Dearest Heavenly Father, the Great Healer and Comforter, I lift Cora up to you now and ask you to calm her mind and heart. Cover her in your love and peace. Fill her life with the hope that can only be found in you. Lead her to find some help that will encourage her and bring her out of this depression. I pray this in Jesus' precious name. Amen.

emoticon Hello! I am brand new here. My name is cora. I did a Google search for Christian bipolar woman and found y'all.
I have bipolar spectrum, suffering mainly with depression plus anxiety. I am married and raising a ten yr old girl.
Right now I am in a down episode. My thoughts are driving me crazy. I feel like my brain is all jumbled up. I can't get myself to do anything (like take care of my house or make food). I end up waisting time playing mindless games on my phone to keep me from thinking. I try to find thoughts which will put me in a better mood, but it's not working. Then the spiraling downward thoughts commence. All the negative self talk fills my head. I feel good for nothing. I feel selfish because I can't do anything for anyone.

Thank you for allowing me to post.

Wow! Many prayers going up for you and your family. God will hold you all up.

I was diagnosed with Bipolar Spectrum Disorder about 5 years ago. I also have anxiety (which seems to be getting worse as the kids are growing up and facing new challenges) and PTSD.

I read your blog and your list of goals and rewards. I think you have every chance of success.

A very Happy Easter to you Tina and to all! What a blessed Time this is. Things may be out of sorts, but we (I included) can rejoice in Christ's great love for us; his death and resurrection!

My PTSD has been triggered today and I am having a rough go of it with high and intense anxiety. I feel like going to bed and curling up into a ball. On a good note, I found my fave CD in my car and was able to listen to some of the relaxing music. I forgot the CD in the car and can't think of artist, so I typed it onto Youtube and found a beautiful rendition by Amy Grant and video. Praise God He is filling me with His perfect peace. Music has always been a powerful tool He uses to soothe me.

"Be still..." That's something I need to remind myself almost on a daily basis. Rest in God's care and love. Be covered by His peace. Give thanks for His sacrifice.

I'll be praying for your Dr's appointment! I hope you find a good mix of meds to even things out for you.

Happy Resurrection Day!!

Tina~ I can't Thank you enough for your prayers. Words can not express how I feel about your faithful prayers.

Also thank you for reminding me to focus on God's goodness. He certainly is a Great God indeed. I read your (hmm whatchamacallit) under your thread..you know where it has your name and verse. LOL Fibro Fog. Anyhow the verse speaks volumes to me. "Be still and Know that I am God." I think that sums it up entirely for where I am at. I need to be still and focus on God.

My Dr.'s nurse called yesterday morning and the Dr. had me lower one of my antidepressants down and also moved my next appointment up from May 6th to this coming Tuesday. I will keep you up to date on what he has to say.

May you have a Blessed Easter weekend.

Cynthia - I'm lifting you up in prayer for your med changes to start working and for God's peace to fill your heart.

I too struggle with comparison. "Why can't I have it together like so-and-so?" Then I always try to remember that so-and-so has their own cross to bear and I might not know what that is, but they have their own struggles too. Everyone has something to deal with. Try to focus on God's goodness and His promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He is with you along the way. Rest in Him. I know, easier said than done. I'll be saying some prayers for you, sweet sister.

Hi! emoticon

It's been forever since I checked in other than to rant in the vent thread. lol I am struggling with my bipolar medicine just being wrong and no matter what changes are made it just doesn't seem to be the right thing. In the middle of March I upped an antidepressant while lowering another. It sent me into a full hypomanic stage. My meds were changed, and then my mood plummeted and some of my compulsiveness from the OCD were triggered. Another med change happened. Mood went up but the compulsions got worse. I talked to my Dr. last Thursday and he made yet another change. Well here I am Tuesday and I am in a hypomanic almost mixed episode. My mood has been so erratic. Very irritable, ill tempered, negative thinking, mind racing faster than an Indy car, and then other times weepy and just really down.

I have noticed I have a really hard time because, I tend to compare myself to so many other people that have bipolar and or fibro like I do and can work, go to school and do the many things I can not. I know this is so self defeating. It makes me go into deep depression. It causes me to shake my fist in anger at God. It makes me not focus on any of the blessings that I have. It's telling God that his Best for me isn't good enough. It causes me envy and jealousy which in turn, turns into bitterness. I feel very bitter as I have been sick for a very long time. I question God and even His goodness at times. Can anyone relate? Does anyone else have a hard time with comparisons? If so, how do you overcome it? Do you have any suggestions? All ideas are welcomed. Thank you so much for listening.

I am waiting my for psych-Dr.'s nurse to call me back to see what the Dr. wants me to do next with my meds. Sigh... I'm trying to be patient.

Blessings to all!

LUVINPURPLE - Depression never seems to come on our schedule. :P I'll be lifting up prayers for you.

Dear Lord - please meet our sister in Christ right where she is. Make the depression be mild and let her quickly overcome it. Keep her strong in You so she may face what is coming. Help her stay focused on her tasks and don't let the depression overtake her. Only through You can we find the strength to persevere through our hard times and troubles. I lift her up to you today and ask for your blessings to shower over her. It's in Your Son's precious name I pray. Amen.

I feel the depression starting to set in. The last week or so I have been really moody. I have been doing so good and have not had a depressive episode or mania all year. It's been over six months since I've had a depressive episode in fact. I rarely get mania. I can become very irritable and fly off the handle in fits of rage, screaming, yelling, etc. But, that rarely happens now that I'm on my medication. I do not have time for this depression. I just got back from Spring Break and have another five weeks before this semester is over. I'm having to work full-time (on week 3 or 4) because of a co-worker on maternity leave. I have too many tests and papers to do this next month. The depression makes me want to stay in bed all the time. This is the first time I have straight A's and I don't want to mess it up. I think I need a break!! Or something!

Blessings from:

Cynthia, I hope the new meds work great for you and you get to an even keel.

Tina, I am keeping you in my prayers. I hope that your depression lifts soon and you are able to finish the things that you need to.

I am doing good actually. Still kinda low but I'm functioning pretty well.

Samantha :)

Hello Ladies!

Cynthia - I'm praying that the new med combo is a winner for you. I love your huddles today. :)

I'm still feel pretty down. NO motivation or energy. I am trying to keep myself busy with a couple of organizing projects and Bible studies, but it's hard to do even those some days. I'm hanging in there as best as I can right now.

The kids have tomorrow off of school, so I think I'm going to take them to the Rec Center to swim.

I hope that things are looking up for you as well, Samantha.

emoticon emoticon Tina and Samantha. How are y'all doing? I hope your depression is lifting and that you are finding motivation.

I tend to have more depression than mania. I rarely get mania and if I do it's the yucky kind where u have a mixed episode and your so irritable and erratic that people run away. (lol)

I'm still struggling. I feel somewhat better to an extent, yet at times I feel really badly. On as positive note I saw my psychiatrist yesterday and he made a med change that will deal with my depression, OCD and PTSD symptoms. He dropped the Latuda and added Zoloft. Last night was my first night on it. too early to tell. I am hopeful this will help.

I So miss my mentor. I emailed her, but haven't heard back. I'm trying not to take it personally. I will see my therapist again Oct 22nd.

Happy Thursday! God Bless!

Tina, I will keep you in my prayers as well. It is so tough for me when I swing into a depression. I don't get them very often and I have a harder time handling them then I do my manias.

But your right. We can do this one day at a time!

Samantha - I'm praying for you as well. I'm kind of in the same spot. I am coming down off of a nice, productive hypomanic period and am sinking into depression. I just feel blah. I have no motivation or drive to get much done. My eating habits are not very good right now and forget about exercise. So far, it hasn't sunk too low. I can still enjoy things and laugh and such. I'm praying that it will be a mild case this time around. Luckily my temper hasn't gone overboard like it usually does.

Let's just take things one day at a time, keep each other in prayer, and we'll get through this.

I am in a weird place right now. I just went to the Dr. and she is not concerned..in fact she thinks I am doing better then I have been since I started seeing her. Heres the problem though. I think the weather is affecting my mood. I get really happy and then all of the sudden I just feel blah. I don't feel down or anything I just lose all energy and motivation to do anything. Like right now I should be working on some paperwork for my business but instead i am here on spark and have been for almost 1/2 an hour. I have a ton of housework that needs done as well and I haven't accomplished anything. Please pray that I will have the motivation and energy to complete the things I need to in order to keep my business going and keep my house in order.

Cynthia, I am praying that your dark cloud will be lifted and you will find the strength to seek God out. I hope this week has been better for you!

Samantha :)

Tina thank you for your ongoing prayers. It means so much to me.

Well I am slightly better this morning, although that dark cloud still looms. I am trying to be strong. I did my morning devotions. I have note cards with verses and my mentor who I talked to last night said I need to meditate on these verses, say them out loud and rebuke satin. Trade Lies out for Truth in scripture. I know she is right.

How is everyone doing? I hope you have a happy Monday and a great start to a new week.
God Bless,

I'm scared and don't want to be alone. My mood is dark. I don't have anywhere I can go. I just can't find the strength to seek God out. I am crying and wish for a hug, but God doesn't hug. I just to have faith that he really loves me. I wish my faith were stronger, but I am so weak at the moment.

It's late and I should go to bed, but I don't know that I can sleep. I just want to cry; its all I seem to do. I didn't have a particularly bad day. I had fun with my sister, but I smiled and covered up the pain I was feeling from what a friend said to me yesterday. She supposedly said the things in love, but they came out mean and hateful imho. The thing is is that my ex husband used to say the same things just to be mean and this has really had me spiraling down. If what they say is true than I am a horrible person that needs to grow up.

Please pray. I don't want to stay in this scary place.

Thank you for your prayers Tina! Hope you are doing well.

Well my ex bf and I have decided to be friends. It's difficult, but it takes away some of the sting. Still bittersweet. I love him and I long for him to love the Lord. But if God feels he is not for me then I will have to accept that.

The past few days have been so hard as I have been in a lot of pain. My fibro had flared up and just wouldn't let up. Today is the 1st day in 12 days that I have had little to no pain. My Dr.'s upped my pain med and also the SSRI Savella which is approved for fibro. I am so thankful. I am a little disappointed though. Today I had planned to go on my church's women's retreat, but because of the pain earlier in the week I gave my spot to someone else. I don't regret doing that because it was a blessing to that person. I just wish I were able to go too.

My mood has been rather down with the pain and all. Some days I just cried for bits of time. I'm feeling better mood wise today. I hope things will smooth out from here.

How is everyone? Happy Fall! emoticon emoticon

Blessings to each of you this weekend!

I don't know how or why I managed to leave this out, but I broke up with my boyfriend on Sunday afternoon. I am okay...I feel like I was following God's lead. I'm okay, but really think I am just numbing out the feelings. I do that in auto defense pilot mode to keep from feeling pain. I miss him. I am sad that it had to come to this, but I can not be with a man that does not love the Lord nor has any desire to serve Him. I'd been making excuses for too long. Please pray I will be strong and stay my ground. Last Feb. I broke up for same reason and I got sucked back in. sigh...the codependency in me.

How is everyone doing?

I could certainly feel God's mighty hand working this weekend. Thank you everyone for your prayers!! I am much more stabilized and am feeling pretty good overall.

Tina~ That Bible study sounds Awesome! So glad you have that to keep you in God's word and give you nourishment.

Samantha~ Glad you are doing better and that you had an enjoyable anniversary.

Abbey~ Thank you for your prayers. You are so sweet!

Well this past weekend was busy. Friday I visited my sister that God has been working on restoration of our relationship. It went well and we had a lot of fun. Saturday I got up early and met a couple of ladies from church that I don't know well and we went to see the Live simulcast of Beth Moore at the Christian college a lil ways from here. It was awesome. Her message was on Grace and how so many of us live as though we have to live under the law and defeat. I love her. I enjoyed getting to know the ladies. We had a great time.

I hope everyone has a Happy Monday and good week!

Cynthia, prayers for you to get stabilized. I'm glad you called the Dr. and are getting the help you need. If the SI continues don't be afraid to reach out for help...stay safe!

Tina, so glad things are going well for you! I wish I could find a bible study like that it sounds great!

I have been struggling with some anxiety and depression for a few weeks but the last few days seem to be better. It was our 5th anniversary yesterday and we were able to go to a nice dinner and watch a favorite show together so all in all it was a great day. Today my mom and I canned 14 pints of peaches, a double batch of freezer jam and 4 quarts of baking apples. I'm feeling pretty accomplished and I was able to spend all of this time with my mom without her becoming critical which is a rare occurrence for us. So all in all I guess I'm doing pretty well.

Samantha :)

Praying for you, Cynthia!

I went to my psych dr last week and everything has been pretty stable for a while now so no changes there. I go to see my counselor this afternoon. not too much to discuss, more like catching up with a friend.

with the kids in school, I've started the c25k program and so far am really enjoying it. I may become a runner yet! ;) I joined a Bible study Wed mornings at church called True Woman 101. so far it's pretty good. it digs deep into God's design for women and His plan for our lives. I have been spending more time in His word and journaling.

the other big project on my to-do list is to get the house organized. we will be getting a total kitchen remodel in Nov so I'm going to work room by room and get things cleared out and organize what's left. I haven't started yet, still trying to get used to the new schedule. Organizing my time is on there too.

lots of things going on....

I hope you all are having a great week, looking forward to the weekend!

Wow didn't realize it had been this long since I last posted.

Well I have had a bout of hypomania a couple weeks ago. It was the not so fun kind. I was so irritable I was ready to take something out or someone...lol...I seriously wouldn't hurt anyone, but I might smash my china or kick my door. (I did kick my door btw...didn't hurt just left scuff marks on the door). Yikes and to boot I didn't even get anything done. I couldn't think clearly. I saw my Dr. and he upped a med. I was doing better, but the last three days or so I have felt very depressed and have struggled with SI thoughts...none of which I have acted on. God is o good to protect me. I called the Dr.'s office today to let them know what's going on.

I have been getting better at reading in God's word and that has been comforting. I wrote some verses on note cards and plan to carry them with me or even tape some to the wall.
Last night a good friend of mine helped me getting me out of the apartment and encouraged me to go to our class at church. I ended up going and had a great time. Thanking God for good friends and accountability partners.

Now I am just waiting for the call from Dr. I will go to boyfriend's for a little while..and pray they don't call. They usually don't call till after 2.

I hope y'all are doing well.

Cynthia and Samantha~I'm praying that you guys stay in the pattern of getting well! Thank you so much for the prayers for me!

I'm a little sluggish today but other than that I'm fine. That could come from working until midnight though. My mom got up with the kids this morning and let me sleep in which was soooo kind of her! I hope everyone is well!

Abby I too will be praying you don't have a crash.

Samantha~ You have really been through it. I am so glad you are doing better today. I will pray that each day gets better. Make a note to self; stay on meds. When I was first diagnosed bipolar I struggled staying on the meds. It is so easy at times to talk ourselves out of needing them. Hang in there.

Well I am okay. Last night had a bit of a crash and I am not sure what the deal was; other than I still am dealing with waiting for prednisone to get out of my system. I felt like I was in a pit and some old thought patterns that used to lead to unhealthy behaviors came buzzing through. Thankfully I was able to pray, take meds and just go to bed without making anything any worse. Feel better today, but still a lil off. I'm sure things will improve with time.

Blessings to all!

Abby, prayers for you that you will continue to get things done and not have a "crash". I'm glad that you are doing well though and I pray it continues.

Hope everyone is well today!

I am having a much better day today and starting to feel back to my old self which is SO nice. I am still tired in the morning but not falling asleep everytime I sit down now.

Samantha :)

Hi Cynthia, I'm so glad to hear that you got to go enjoy the concert and that your boyfriend is enjoying the music. I've never heard of Laura Story...gonna look her up on YouTube.

Sorry I've been absent. My life has just been a roller coaster lately. I was doing much better but the meds were making me sleepy so I made the genius decision that I didn't need my meds anymore. Well then I crashed into this mixed episode that has just been terrible. Talked to my Dr. and she said I needed to get back on my meds ASAP but because I had been off them for over a week my body is having to adjust to them again. So instead of being a little tired like I was before I am now EXHAUSTED. I slept for 16 hours yesterday. Every time I sat down to do something I fell asleep. As for my mood it is starting to stabilize but I am still fairly irritable and last night I just wanted to cry for no apparent reason. I have family coming to visit this next weekend so I really need to get myself together so that I can get the house together and ready for them.
For right now though I am just going to focus on getting the necessities done such as paperwork for my job and taking care of me. I took a shower today! I am celebrating the small victories. I am awake and dressed and clean. Better then yesterday! Tomorrow I plan to resume my workout routine (Sunday's are always my day off). I know I can get better. I just have to keep taking my meds and making myself a priority!

Samantha :)

Sunshine~ Hope this week is a much better week for you! Were you able to get some rest? My hypomania calmed as the day wore on.

So how is everyone? Samantha...missing u.

Last night I had a great time. Our local radio station hosted a free Laura Story concert. I've always liked her music. She was awesome and is so very talented. She sang a lot of new songs that are going to be on her upcoming album, but also played familiar stuff. My boyfriend and I went together. He is a baby Christian and really sometimes I don't know that he fully understands what the Christian life is about. Anyhow this morning when I went to his place he was listening to Laura Story on youtube. I was shocked. He usually is a Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Tom petty kind of guy. (not saying these are all bad per say)....just feel as though the Lord spoke to him through her music and I am excited.

I am feeling pretty good this morning. I am so glad the prednisone is leaving my system. I feel sooo much better. I am feeling mildly anxious, but I think it will pass.

Have a great day!

Cynthia, I'm still praying for you hun. I'm up at 4 am because I can't sleep. I've had a really rough week (flat tire, friend leaving for college, 1 kid leaving the daycare, and extra cleaning work) so I've been VERY emotional and I think I'm just manic...I wish I could sleep because tomorrow (or is it today...) is the start of a long weekend for me and I'd rather not spend it sleeping or being a zombie. Cynthia dear we can ride through this hypomanic state together!

Well pain level went sky high yesterday (fibro) and I ended up having to get an antiflamatory (spell?) shot at the Dr. Also had to stop the prednisone as my moods were way out of whack. Very combative, agitated, weepy, kinda mixed episode like. Yesterday was just plain hello. I called my psychiatrist about how bad the moods were and his nurse had me stop the pred (which I had already done) and to take my antianxiety medicine (the PRN pill) as though it were scheduled. She said I would just have to ride it out and wait for the predjunk to wear off. So that is what I am doing.

Praising the Lord that today I feel better physically and emotionally. I still feel a little hypomanic/mixed but not nearly as agitated or angry.

I slept in til noon today, which I don't like it when I do that. I guess I just needed the sleep.

So how is everyone else doing? Hope all is well!
