    I'm so sick of these mood swings.

    The past couple of days I feel great and now suddenly it's back to wanting to swallow all my meds at once.

    I can't stand this.

    Hey BCS,
    Mood swings can be controlled. Talk to you doctor about meds for them.. I suffer from them and the med I take for them works for me. I found out just how much two months ago when I came up short the end of the month. When I came off them I turned into instant asshole and once I was back on them I was fine..

    That's one of my problems. My doctor's solution to everything seems to be drink less caffeine.

    Have you tried drinking less caffeine?

    Maybe a new doctor?

    Are you diagnosed bipolar? If not look into it.

    Yep, stuck on poland springs now. Yuck.

    I've got an appointment with someone different next week, hopefully they won't just say the same thing.

    I have experience with those people, my dad's family is almost all bipolar, and I'm pretty sure I don't have that.

    Though I guess that's for the therapist to decide.

    Then there's a good chance you ARE bipolar. It runs in families. And you already described the mood swings. A major symptom.

    Yep good luck with the new doc. Now is your chance to make a stand hun. There are meds out there that can really make a difference. Dont let them tell you there isnt. But there may be something to the caffiene thing. I'm bipolar and still drink enough Coke in a day to drop a bull moose :)!!!! No more like :( No maybe :) Oh bother!!! (lmao).

    Well, I of course got screwed over by my family again.

    Made me miss my appointment.

    Sudden drop in mood after feeling great most of today.

    Anxious as hell about school tomorrow, especially since we've been off for a week, and it feels like I'll be yelled at if I forgot to do something.

    Tonight's a night suicide will feel particularily attractive. :sad:
