Hi Miss Katy,
So sorry you're feeling badly. And I have noticed that you disappear from the board when you're in a bad way and show up more when you're in a good way. You're not wearing me out, I always miss you when you leave for a few days. That's what we're here for.

Have you called your pdoc? I know that I went haywire on Depakote for the titration up to therapeutic dose and I told my pdoc about it. He said that actually has happened to a few other BP people and it's part of the titration. It could be what you're experiencing now (except with Li). You may just need time and the right dose before Li. kicks in. Your upness/anxiety may be from the Lamictal and the Li. hasn't activated yet?
Maybe call your doctor? This is really tough. It always feels like it's changing; nothing feels for certain. I understand.
big hug,
Katia

> I'm feeling bad again. I feel like I've been conked over the head. SOOOOO sleepy and weepy. I cried and cried yesterday, and choked down food b/c I wasn't hungry. I wanted to break up with my boyfriend. My teeth have been clenched HARD for a couple of days. But I'm able to think more clearly (if that makes sense). But I'm feeling negative and a bit irritable. The only way I can relax and sleep at night is by taking a benzo. I can feel my teeth unclench, and slowly I drift into sleep.
