Still pushing my comfort zone. Anxiety has been high, so I have been taking small doses of alprazolam, but nothing compared to what I used to need. I had a great time at the party with the nice man I met. We have both been up front with each other about not wanting a long-term serious relationship. He is dealing with severe illness in his family and I am still...well...me. BUT I will be going out to a Halloween party this Friday with both him and a good friend of mine (Yes, both guys. They are both are acquaintances.). Assuming I have not cross-wired my communication skills we can keep this on a fun level and not get too darn entwined.

I had an anxiety attack start while we were out at the party and he saw it hit like a truck. He noticed the problem before I did. Apparently he has dealt with this before because he found a quiet spot for me and helped me get my meds without the least bit of being rattled. I fessed up to what was wrong and he just listened. Didn't try to fix it. Just listened. So I spilled a little of what is wrong with me on the first meetup/date-thing and didn't scare him off. I like the guy, a lot, but I am still questioning if I can keep this platonic and not jump too far in over my head and cause problems for both of us. I am in untested waters right now and scared. Don't dive. Just don't dive. Swim.

Talked to my psych doc and let her know about the bouts of hypomania followed by a crash every dang month and how it is wreaking havoc on me and could cause me dangerous problems. We are upping my lithium for five days around when the mania hits and seeing if that works. So far it seems to have knocked it down to a minimum and prevented the drop, though it left me numb those five days. Numb is better than stupid followed by the pit.

Other psyc is glad to hear that I am pushing myself, with the warning of not rushing and getting into any problems. Be safe, etc. Be honest, but not too fast. Dealing with emotions of my husband and reconciling that he would want me to be happy. Good things to keep in my mind.

So now that I have written an epic, I should sign off.

If you made it this far TL;DR:
Relationships are hard
Mental health when dealing with relationships is harder
Psych docs are good

LARISSA238, I take Latuda too. I've been through a number of antipsychotic drugs. I take it in the evening after I eat dinner because of the 350 calorie thing and because it makes me drowsy. Frankly, I could sleep all day most days if my life didn't demand otherwise. Psych Doc just bumped my dose up again but I haven't gotten the new script in the mail yet along with the Topamax. I have no motivation or interest in things. I haven't for a long time. By the time I do what I have to do I don't want to do anything else. I don't want to do what I have to do. That's true even when I'm not feeling particularly sad. At this point in my life, I'm just glad I'm not having mania even though mania is what use to drive me. Mania could lead to psychosis again and that's a trip I don't ever want to take again. I'll live with the depression.

Stable today, but I did have a really bad migraine. I was in bed, in the dark, most of the day. I just watered my plants and ate a bit. I had trouble getting out of bed in the afternoon (I slept through the morning because of the pain) to get my coffee to take my Latuda. If I didn't have to have 350 calories with my Latuda I would have just taken it a lot earlier.

I had a rough night last night. I wanted to go to the hospital for attention. When I get like that, it's very dangerous. I don't get suicidal, but I get so desperate for attention I'm willing to do almost anything, like check myself into the hospital. It doesn't work, I don't get enough attention there, so I end up worse than I was when I went in. I'm not feeling like that anymore... I prayed to my Higher Power (Love) that I could feel loved and accepted by myself and not have to turn to anyone or anything else for attention. It seemed to work! I'm doing better, like I said, and I don't feel like going to the hospital anymore.

I managed to get through the day without incident. I just had fun with a friend, and I didn't even drink despite the opportunity. I'm pretty proud of myself for having enough self-control to get through the day!

URBANAUDREYE, Because I get my care through a teaching hospital I have the benefit of seeing two psych doctors. One is a young resident and the other an older attending. They both assured me that Topamax is a safe drug. I did read the information for it at Drugs.com. It is an anticonvulsant drug like Lamictal is but is not as good at mood stabilizing from what they said. I was hoping someone would have some information on if it helped them any with weight loss. The older attending is very experienced so I trust his judgment.

LARISSA238 you are absolutely making sense to me. I had a very severe mixed state with psychosis and suicidal ideation that landed me in involuntary commitment. I was totally out of my mind. I've had mania with hypersexuality and you do make very poor decisions under those conditions. You sound very aware of what's going on so hopefully, you have a plan to deal with it. I wasn't lucky enough to be aware of what was happening. Take care of yourself.

I might have to go to the psych Urgent Care on Monday. I'm in a mixed episode, possibly heading towards full mania (about 6 hours of sleep, tons of energy, but no motivation to do anything with it), and my psych's office lost power today (the whole building was out) so I couldn't see him. I really needed him today, and last week, but he wasn't there. I'm getting a new one (I have my intake on November 1st) so I just have to stick with this one until then. He's only there 2 days a month (every other Friday). I like him, but you could be the greatest psych on earth but if you are only there 2 days a month, then you suck LOL!.

Anyways, I'm just trying to deal. I've been on the phone most of the day and dyed my hair a reddish-purple. It was supposed to be purple, but my hair tends towards red when dyed. I like it, It's just not what I was expecting. I might re-do it and post a picture!

I'm hanging out with a friend tomorrow (hopefully). We are both off some of our meds, so who knows if either one of us will cancel. I'm kinda worried, since he likes me and when I'm hypomanic I tend to gravitate towards people who like me and make hasty relationship decisions (for one, it's a he, and I don't know too much about him outside his mental illness story) and so I'm hoping i can get through this without doing something stupid like kissing him. He knows I'm a lesbian and doesn't want to get involved with one (we already set boundaries) but I'm just scared I might slip up in a manic hypersexuality thing. I'm not going to sleep with him by any means, but I just don't want to cross a boundary that I've set for myself. Do I make sense? I'm not sure.

I keep getting how great Topomax is for migraines, but I can't take it because it increases the chances of stroke with the type of migraines I get.

LARISSA238 , Yes, do talk to your doctor about it. My psychiatrist brought it up to me without my asking about anything for weight. I had told her about my recent diagnosis of Venous Insufficiency and how being overweight is bad for it. I also told her how difficult it was for me to lose weight the last time I tried. I was starving myself and exercising and the weight wasn't budging. I had to go below 1200 calories a day to get any loss. It is difficult to lose weight when you're on drugs that cause weight gain. I don't know if the Topamax will work for me or not or if I'll have any bad side effects but I am going to try it.

Mitzy thanks for the info! I didn't know you couldn't take it with Keto. I think I will talk to my doctors about if they want me to stop Keto and take it or keep doing Keto and not take it.

LARISSA238 it's good to hear you're sounding positive. It's so hard to be positive when depressed. My mind leans towards negative even if I'm not feeling particularly depressed. I try not to let it show online.

The information on Drugs.com says you should not use Topamax if you're on the Ketogenic diet.

Great day! I got my $75 for the study, got a pedicure (after going to the dentist, but I made the best of it), went to my CoDA meeting and celebrated my 6 months back in LA! I left my stupid ex 6 months ago, and while it's been a rough ride at times, I'm still SO glad I did it! The self-respect I've gained is more than worth any depression that I've had!

Anyone have any luck with Tompamax helping to lose weight while on other psych drugs that cause weight gain?

You get points for downloading the app? That's cool. I've been here a long time, so I don't count points anymore. I just post and get my exercise tracked. I wish you could get a point for every exercise minute LOL!

----------

Doing good today. I did my study for $75. Hopefully I get paid tomorrow for it! If not, I'm going to be mad and complain. It's through Pay-Pal, so it could take a day for the money to come in. I got a ride home from Lyft to celebrate making money. As long as I get the money from them tomorrow, I'm going to go to Starbucks with my sponsor and get some coffee! I love coffee, so it's just going to be a happy thing for me. I will spend the rest paying my credit card for the flea stuff Angela needed. I just needed to do something nice for me. I might get a pedicure, now that I think about it! Maybe Thursday, just something else nice for me. I deserve it!

I am unable to take antidepressants for the same reason. Antidepressants cause me to switch into mania.

Thanks for joining, Mitzy! I do the Ketogenic Diet and it's a big help to me. I've been on weight gain meds, but still managed to lose some weight. I'm also off antidepressants, but that's a double-edged sword. Keto (short for Ketogenic) helps a lot with energy and mental clarity so I can't take them because I get manic. BUT I still struggle with depression and was in the mental hospital in July because of it. It's hard, but I would rather have a healthy diet (it's really weird- as much fat as I can eat, but no carbs) and lose weight than be big again. I've managed to lose about 60 pounds from my highest to now.

AND I can't help but to notice how pretty you are!

------------

Hanging in there today. I really need to work on loving myself more. I was in my CoDA meeting and I was talking about how I need to do that to get a better relationship with everyone. I can't be in a romantic relationship until I get myself better. I just got out of such a bad one, and I need to move on and learn.

I'm also depressed. I need to get myself together.. I have a study I'm doing tomorrow about f new technology. I get $75 for doing it, and I really need the money. Angela's flea treatment was about that much for 6 months, so it would come in really handy. I can't miss this study, or else I will be disqualified from any more in the future. It's only a half hour, and if I get the money I'm taking a Lyft home instead of walking. I need to do something nice for myself as a treat. I see my therapist on Tuesday, so hopefully I can feel something besides anger when I go see her. It's just been rough. I hate getting angry because then I get depressed.

I had a day on Friday. I went to go see my psych because I'm running out of meds (tonight is my last dose), and he wasn't there. I got the date wrong! So I went to get my flu shot because I didn't want to have gone all the way downtown for nothing. I tell the nurse that my ride is coming in 20, so I get it done fast. I was supposed to be picked up at 4:30, so I go outside and wait. I call a friend, and we are talking. At 4:45 I call the ride people to see where my ride is. I'm on hold until about 5 PM!! I finally talk to someone, and they say that the drivers got changed and it got cancelled. I see the last people leave the parking lot and the guy said the driver will be there in about 5-10 minutes. I wait, and about 5:20 I call again. The parking lot is closed now, and the driver can't get in. So when I call for the third time, I go to the clinic next door where I got my flu shot and the nurse is surprised to see me. I tell her what's going on, and they tell me another 5-10 minutes for the ride. The security guard is surprised to see me there waiting still, too. Finally about 5:45 my ride finally comes. It's downtown on a Friday night, so I don't get home until about 6:15, pissed and exhausted.

It's just been one of those weeks.

Hello, I am new to Sparkpeople. I have Bipolar I Disorder. I am 58 years old. The medications I am taking have caused a lot of weight gain. I was recently diagnosed with Venous Insufficiency which causes blood to pool in my legs. Being overweight aggravates this. I am having to wear compression socks and elevate my feet above my heart in order to get the blood to circulate back to my heart. I am going to start paying closer attention to the calories I am eating and try to move around more to get some exercise. I have a Swhinn Airdyne stationary bike I am able to ride but need to work at building up some stamina to be able to stay on it long enough and go fast enough to burn some calories. My doctor said to try walking for 30 minutes a day. I can't walk for that long right now so will have to build up to it. I am able to do shorter 10 minutes at a time. He said I could do that 3 times and it would still work out to the same. He wants to see me back in 6 months so I want to get some of this weight off before then.

I'm a supporter of marijuana. I had a migraine for over a month and it was horrible! I was in the ER because of it, and they gave me everything you can imagine (from Reglan to Morphine) and nothing worked. I went to LA for my mom's funeral, and since it's legal, I vaped some pot. My migraine went away and since then I swear by it. I'm happy it's legal here, and I'm going to get my card soon! I can't smoke in the house, but I do want to smoke on my front steps. It really does help with the pain and my psych said it's good for me.

I wish the laws would catch up with the medical marijuana movement. I would love to utilize it for my chronic pain and anxiety, but I'm also not willing to give up my firearms. I do hope to someday get someone to babysit the kids so I could go hunting.

Rissa,it sounds like you are having quite a time of it. I'm so sorry that you are feeling so depressed and that outside influences are so affecting your life. I hope that there is a positive change in the future for you. Thank you for creating and posting in the Coping Skill of the Day Forum. It is a valuable topic.

Audrey, I've never heard that about cats and fleas, I've heard a lot of good things about apple cider vinegar. It is supposed to help keep head lice away in children if you rinse their hair daily with apple cider vinegar and it is very good internally if you drink it. It has a lot of health benefits.

There is nothing going on in my life right now. I am just trying to get used to the weather change from sun to rain. I have rain to look forward to for the next nine months minimum. The monsoon season has just about arrived. We had rain almost all this entire week. We are supposed to get some very last of the season sun today. Then, the weather forecast turns to rain again for the next ten days in a row. It is very hard on me when the weather turns gray. I have SAD and the rain just really gets to me and not in a good way. Oh well, I am going to enjoy today, since it is supposed to be sunny, but cool - in the very low sixties. I don't have anything planned for the weekend, except getting my medication straightened around. I have a medical marijuana card and I will be getting my CBD oil for pain. Have you ever tried that for your pain, Rissa? It works well for me and it helps with my depression because of it. Of course, it is not a viable option for everyone. MM affects people in so many different ways. I hope that all of you have a great weekend. May your weekend be blessed with family and friends. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

lol @URBANAUDREYE! I got her to the vet and got her some treatments. It caused even more drama, but I'm too tired to get into that now.

@LARISSA238 if you're brave you can give the cat a bath in apple cider vinegar. It's supposed to get rid off fleas. It's not as fool proof as the flea treatments, but it should give her some relief at least.

B*tch and moan, b*tch and moan. (not anyone else, me!). I'm having a bad day. A REALLY bad day. Like, I woke up around 6:40 am, then dozed off and on until about 9:30 when I started my daily pills. I tried to get up to go to the bathroom and I was in a lot of pain because I didn't sleep well. Does that happen to anyone else? When I don't sleep, I get in LOTS of pain. So I used the bathroom and went back to bed and tried to sleep. Got really depressed instead. Just lay there, passively thinking about death. Not actively suicidal, if I was I would have gone to the hospital. So I was hoping that Richard was going to go to the movies today so I would have the house to myself. NOPE. His friend cancelled on him. So I finally get out of bed around 11, then try and make my coffee. Well, I got about halfway through before I had to go lie down in pain again.

Finally made my coffee and felt a bit human. Less pain, less depression. Things are going good! I go on Facebook after I drink my coffee and find out my Aunt Evie died. She was in her 90's, was in the hospital, and I didn't even really know her (I always got Aunt Dorthy and Auntie Evie confused) but to find out on Facebook was hard. It was like nobody thought to call me again, when I already feel abandoned and out of the family. I find out my Uncle has been calling people, like my sister, but not me. And my sister never picks up her phone, you have to text her to get her to respond. But he called her and not me. I feel like even more crap.

I get in the shower. Nothing bad happens here.

I get out of the shower and convince myself to go to my CoDA meeting. I need to get out of the house, feel better and vent about my issues with my friends. So I get to the garage to get my bike to get there. I open the garage door, pull out my bike, and wait for it... My tire's flat! I can't go to my meeting. I call one of the leaders, since I was supposed to get tea for them last week and couldn't make it because I was in too much pain, and told her what was going on. She said okay, and so now I have to spend money I don't have on getting my bike fixed. More money out the door!

So I head to my room, sad that I can't go to my meeting and try to play with my ESA, Angela. I look at her face and she's scratching at a black dot on a previously white spot. It's a flea. My cat has fleas! She's never had a flea in her life til she ran outside. I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow, anyway (that's the one good thing about it- I'm about to take her to the vet, and I didn't find out afterwards) so I will talk to the vet about what to do. Now I have to spend even MORE money on flea treatments for my little kitty!

I don't have a lot of money. Money is one of the biggest source of stress in my life. I don't have money for 2 new inner tubes for my bike, and not for spending tons of money for flea stuff. I'm looking at poor Angela now, and she's twitching as the fleas bite her. I don't know how I didn't know it before today. All I know is that I've had the day from Hell, and I don't know if it's going to get any better tomorrow when I have to shell out all this money.

Why me?? Sorry about the complaints.. it's just one of THOSE days!

So I have been on the edge of manic for the last week. I used it as an excuse to get out and see people while I still had the guts to go out the door. So I went to a group that I have known about for some time now and just hadn't gotten up the nerve to go. Nice like-minded people who generally seem to like each other and are open to newcomers.

And I met a nice guy.

Yeah, that is a scary thing for me. After four and a half years on my own the prospect of opening up about any of it to anyone was scary as all hell. On the other hand, he is employed (with his own business), kind, and understands where I am coming from--his ex wife had cancer. Normally a divorcee is a red flag for me, but he doesn't speak ill of her. In fact I think he still loves her. As I chatted with the other people at the party they all speak highly of him so the creep factor is pretty low. Anyway, I go to see him on Friday at a club (public=chaperoned). I doubt that this is going to turn into anything long term, but for someone to talk to and get back into the swing of things I think it is a good idea.

One problem: I am going manic.

Now normally I end up with the spending problems and reckless driving. The point I am worried about is the hyper-sexuality. I am going to have to keep my head about me and no go off the deep end. Living by myself or with my husband this has not been an issue. But...well...you get the idea.

I am on a higher regimen of Lithium right now to combat the high, but I am hoping that it kicks in before Friday or I could be asking for trouble--literally and loudly. The first thing I say to a date should not be, "Hi, I am bat-*&^% crazy!" or any non-verbal cues to the same idea.

So I am freaking. Not just because I am manic, but because this is the first time I have gone out with ANYONE since my husband died. Part of me feels guilty--not a large part, since I know he would have wanted me to be happy. Another part of me is petrified that I am putting myself back out there again for the first time in fourteen years (and I wasn't looking for a man when I found my husband).

Already talked to the psyc doc and she is happy that I am moving on a bit and pushing myself, even if it is scary as all hell. Progress. Small steps. And I'll keep going to the gatherings whether this works out or not. I like nice eclectic people. And boy are there some characters in there (me included)!

I'm doing okay. I had therapy today and I was talking to her about a bunch of family issues, money stuff and legal stuff. I don't really know how it's all going to work out, but I do need to have a talk with my stepdad once I calm down about my brother. He got pissed at me and made me pay (literally- I had to pay for my own meal when he paid for everyone else). He's going to be in control of my finances when Richard passes (my stepdad), so if my brother would get pissed at me after that, he could kick me out of my house and leave me with almost no money. I need to talk to Richard about how to get that changed hopefully. But like I said, I have to calm down and not be mad at my brother when I talk to him about it. I want to be able to have some control over my money and know how long I can get money instead of just worrying that my brother will steal from me.

Sorry about the rant.

Hang in there Carol. Harvey was a terrible tragedy and I'm sure that trying to straighten out your life again is demanding.Hang in there !!

Larissa,it takes a long, long time when dealing with the death of a parent to get back on track. My Dad passed away three years ago in January and I still break down at least once a week and cry because he is gone now. I don't think that we ever get over a parent's passing, just become more used to their being gone. I'm so sorry that you are having such a rough time. I hope that you have made it successfully through the past few days. My Dad's birthday would have been this October 8th. He would have been 91. I think that an altar for your loved ones is a terrific idea. It gives you a place to go for solace. I hope that things don't get too rough for you. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

I cried today. I miss my mom... It's weird that it's taking so long for her death to hit me (Jan 31st) but I knew I was going to crash and this is what happened. I also did a major faux pas with my sister. I don't want to go into the drama (that's for my journal) but I almost got un-invited to my brother's Thanksgiving party because of it. Hopefully I won't have to explain anything to my sister. It was her birthday today, and we went out to dinner. I missed my meds, and did a major slip-up. I had to apologize to my brother and it didn't help me feel any better. I came home and cried on the phone with a friend for a while. I feel a bit better now. I lit my candles on my altar (for the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead in November- I keep it up year round) to honor my family. October 4th is the anniversary of my dad's suicide, so it's going to be a rough couple of days.

I'm getting a new dress for Halloween. Not really a "costume", but a spooky dress. If it turns out like Mike said, it's going to be mostly black with white spiderwebs with inserts of red rose lace! It's totally custom, too :D I did the basic fitting on Thursday, and this Thursday I'm hopefully going to see the fabric and the muslin pattern. I'm so excited!

@WALLOWA - Your mare is gorgeous!

@LARISSA238 - Angela sounds like a wonderful cat! I hope your hypomania resolves to a normal soon!

@DEBTEVELDAHL - It's always a good time. We usually go on Isis's birthday, but while she has the day off from school, Xena doesn't. She's been missing enough school time the way it is with her psych appointments. We've got to get moving on our Christmas shopping too. I've got Colt's "Santa" gift so far, but that's it. Costumes we got from Amazon this year after shopping around the Halloween stores. They'll get lots of use too with Dorney Haunt days, and Xena will be using hers for her dance recital as well.

Thank you Audrey for starting the October Chat !! Your outing with the kids sounds great !! What a terrific way to start off October and get your kids in the spirit of the season with mazes, corn rows and apple spice donuts !!

Wallowa, your horse is absolutely stunning !! You must be very proud of her.

Larissa, your cat is so pretty. She looks like spun silk in your picture of her. What a shiny coat ! I hope that you come off your hypomanic phase well and don't just crash land hard.

Today is picture day at school, so I have to get Micah up at 6:00 am to get him ready to go this morning. His mother is off today, so she is taking him to school and staying with him through the picture taking. She wants to make sure that he smiles for the photographer. His last school pictures were a complete failure. We wasted money on the ones for last year, that is for sure. He had the biggest frown on his face and they were not at all flattering. Jeni doesn't want to waste money on more spoiled pictures, so she will accompany him today. I am busily cleaning closets out before the spending for Christmas starts. We have to have places to stash presents as we gear up for the holidays. We will begin Christmas shopping in October and work our way through the succeeding months, so that we don't have everything piled up waiting for the last minute. Jeni has some stellar shopping skills and finds the best deals. Micah has his costume for Halloween. He will be Optimus Prime of Transformer fame. We bought his costume at Costco and has been worth every penny. We have let him play in the costume, so he gets a lot of use out of one Halloween costume.

I hope that you all have a great week and a marvelous Monday. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Her name is Angela, and she's an ESA (Emotional Support Animal). I don't take her with me to places since she's not a Service Animal (there's a big difference) but she does help me a lot! I don't know what I would do without her. Some days it's her that gets me out of bed, since she gets hungry and wants to eat. I've had her for 8 years (or 9, I forget right now) and I adopted her. She is the sweetest thing! She is well trained- She doesn't pee outside the box, follows me around when I need her, she nudges me when I get down, and she has a great meow (and a loud voice!). She knows her mama well!

Sounds so fun, Audrey! Thanks for starting the chat!

--------------------

I'm doing okay. I'm just trying to get through each day as they come. I did get some good sleep last night after a hypomanic attack. I had to take an extra Neurontin, some melatonin, and a Tylenol PM since I was getting a headache. But it was enough for me to get to sleep, so I'm grateful. I cleaned too much today (another hypomania thing I do) so I just have to be really careful and avoid a bad crash. I'm not looking forward to the down after this up.

New month, new chat.

We took the kids to Roba's Family Farm today. I think we did a family record on both corn mazes. Less than 15 minutes in each of them. And that was including a stop at the cafe inside the big maze for an apple cider donut.
