April 2011

Over the past week I’ve had two depressive phases and a manic phase. There is a history of bipolar (among other psych illnesses) in my dad’s side of the family, and I have a history of spread out bipolar symptoms, so we don’t know if a combo of factors (hormones, grief, inlaws, stress) are working together to give me bipolar symptoms without bipolar, or if they started me onto the road of bipolar….

I’m now to go up to 60mg of my antidepressant, and am on 50mg of Seroquel which apparently acts as a mood stabilizer when combined with anti depressants…..

Hopefully this works to keep me a bit more level while things work through my system, or starts a successful treatment of my bipolar if it is in fact bipolar.

Mischief as an itty bitty kitty (ok, he really wasn’t tiny even then)…… (I admit to having small hands, but look how monstrous he is next to my fingers!)
