    Am really down. Nothing interests me anymore. Just waking up in the morning hurts so bad. And now my computer is infected with a virus thanks to my stupidity so now I have even less to do. :sad:

    Most of my day is spent moping and doing whatever work needs to be done. Just being alive hurts so much. I've seen a number of therapists, been on so many medications, and have had ECT. Is there any hope for me?

    I have bipolar disorder along with a list of other mental problems. I found one medication that worked well and had liveable side effects. Sadly after about six months on the medication my body built up a tolerance and it stopped working. I have found others that I liked but the side effects were horrible. I kept having allergic reactions. Things like skin rashes and muscle stiffness that wouldnt go away and I had to stop taking those medications. So nothing has worked for me either. The medical doctor I seen before I lost coverage said I was medication sensative. The pdoc I was going to before I lost coverage was stumped because I kept having severe allergic reactions. I feel helpess too..

    I've hada similar case. After they threw half a pharmacy at me, I did finally find an effective medication for me.
