No questions. I most likely have bipolar disorder too. Wait, I do have a question, are you on a mood stabilizer? If so, which one? Do you like it?

So am I, you are going to get ripped apart in this thread because a lot of ladies here are very mean towards those with MI.

What meds do you take how is the weight gain on it?

Yup and and antidepressant. Prozac for the antidepressant and something really long, it's for nerve disorders like seizures. I don't really like it though, throughout it does help keep my nerves settled,but when I am in manic mode it helps a little. I just think I need something else.

I know I have seen some shit on here, but there are mom's that need help, help and I hope I can do that. I am on Prozac, I like that one hard to get used to the feeling of calm. Something really long for my mood stabilizer, it's for nerve disorders. The weight gain is alright,I have been able to keep it a min. But I can get bloated an it just sucks all the salt out of me. :p hate that part.

I was diagnosed Bipolar II.


I am unmedicated though. I take a more natural approach to it since all the types of meds we tried only made it so much worse.

Do your meds work? I have a couple of friends who have dealt with BPD and I felt so bad for them because it seems like it takes forever for the doctor to get their meds adjusted for them. I've been told it's like that for most everyone who is being treated for BPD because the meds affect everyone differently and ppl have different degrees of the disorder.
