will someone remind me it gets better than this?

Posted by holymama on July 5, 2005, at 18:40:38

I am at an all time low after going off my 6 bipolar meds a couple of weeks ago, being hospitalized, and put back on 3 meds. I have been back home for almost a week and I CANNOT FUNCTION. Maybe I am a slight bit better, but I cannot watch my children for more than an hour, I have been breaking down crying, and am so agitated and irritated at everything that I have thrown a few things. Every situation, every thing seems so overwhelming.
Now, I have been hospitalized once before, and I've definitely had nervous breakdowns before, so I am aware that it is possible to recover (only to do the whole thing all over again ...), but this time something is different. I don't want to solve this problem with drugs. My last pdoc fired me when I went off my meds, so when I find a new one, their answer to my complaints (like, "I'm feeling agitated") is always to add another medication!! If someone offers me another drug, I think I'll scream!!!! I am beginning a relationship with a homeopathic doctor and am looking into a pdoc who is into alternative meds. Has anyone else gone this route, and is it possible to feel better without using more meds as an answer? I feel like this is uncharted territory. ~~Autumn~~
