i finished going to all my disability appts..todays was my mental exam..they asked alot of questions about my past history with depression, whether i had common sense..they said i was being heavily medicated which was kinda a surprise for a mental exam...i am on 3 different medications which make me sleepy all the time or not with the program as those without mental problems..needless to say ill find out the results in the next 3 to 5 months. hopefully they see i need the disability and wont have to fight for it like alot of people who file for disability do.
Today i went and seen anew doctor..He prescipted me "latuda"along with the trazodone, haldol..Im now on 2 antipchsycotic meds which leads me to believe im borderline schhzoprenic...They havent changed my diagnosis but im begining to wonder if i should as them when i go back
March 7, 2012. today starts the home visits from my teacher/social worker from "dual " class. Im curious to see if she is different from a class setting to a one on one situation.She seems like a person that care free and id get along with outside of class and the home visits.
March 5, 2012. well i went to see my new dr today..Guess im not done seeing doctors..Lol..Any ways a neww doctor new scripts..This is getting old real quick..Ouut with the lithium an inderal and trazadone,in with celexa at a higher dose and ambien for sleep...Now maybe ill sleep better.
Febuary 8, 2012. went to see dr today for final visit with "cedars center" doctor.Instead of dropping the scripts he added to them now im taking 4 meds insted of just 2 meds.Im on lithium carb, trazadone, inderal and celexa.I explained to him that i been a week clean beause i didnt like taking the pills; wanted to see if it was the pills were maKing me feel the way i was or getting high would make me feel better,the pills won.He kept asking me how i felt a if he didnt know...It made my head hurt and i felt sick to my stomach.I dont know if this is the end of my doctor visits completly or just a pause in my treatment. well see how i function now im on 4 different meds.
So after a week off the pristiq and having an allergic reaction im starting to have alot of manic episodes..Im feverishly and spontaniously doing things and feeling the go.Go.Go mode.Itll only be followed by a downslide but when i dont know yet..Im in bed by 10 and 11 and up at the crack ass of dawn ready to do something..The haldol works good but it doesnt keep me at a level ground. its either a high or a low mentally..Anything in between is a rareity anymore.When i take it i pass out for an a hour and half then feel like shit for about an hour..I have to say on a postive note no more real delusions as long as i dont stare into the sky to much.at times i have to take 3mg instead of 2 mg just to slow my self down..Whether or not its good for me i dont know..All i know is a crash is going to happen i just dont know when.i also fond out this past week that im a 3rd generation bipolar/ manic peson.my grandma(r.i.p),my mom and now me have or had this mental disorder.grandma drank and ran away from her kids and became a jesus freak later in life,my mom ignores it and puts me down for doing something about it.
January 24 2012. tomorrow i go to my first meeting with my case manager at oaklawn..Im a lil nervous and excited to know more about my mental disrder. i also might start a group called P.I.I.T this week.Asfar as my mental state its a come and go thing.i still dont like taking these pills.Im up to 7 a day.3 lithium,3 chlynodine and trazodone aat night.Though im noticing the chlynoddine isnt helping with the stress or anger.
Had a bad day on saturday night.It started around 730pm when aafter having a killer lasagna dinner my 11yr old help Make.I wanted to lay down on the couch to let it settle and i fell asleep.Maybe a half hour of sleeping i woke uup with my 2 yr old jumping on my back and my 4 yr old screaming at the top of her lungs"give it back".I went from calm and relaxed to a raging bull with his nuts in a sling.I sent put the baby on the floor and immediatly focused on my 4yr old.I sent her to her room and outta no where my wife showed up and told her to go sit down.This has been an issue that been going on for a while now and doesnt seem to be making the situation any better by my wife going against my demands and letting my 4 yr old do what she wants and when she wants.I got up went to my room and called it a night.
ive stopped taking the lithium and inderal cause they ddont seem to be working..The trazadone help me sleep a little,but not giving up on it just quite yet..Got a dr appt on the 5th and well see what happens.Im still having anxiety problems an its hard for me to do daily things like get on the bus,going tolaundry mat,grocery shopping.
