Hi Scott, how are you. Best as possible I hope!
I concur with you as far as anxiety. I truly believe in 5 to ten years "they" Dr.'s Clinicians,et. al...will be gin to realize that BP II , or BP I or III or what ever they want to so neatly tuck in to the dsm-IV or upcoming version dsm-V, they will ultimately realize that with the beast we are all dealing with is a large common denominator of not just agitated depression, or mixed or what evr or merely refractory in nature but a beast that needs serious and urget care > It to me is a bi-polar "Spectrum" and the idea has much to subsatiate its chaos it creates in at least my brain and I am sure many if not milllions of others brains. I feel like I am in Park and need to go 100 miles an hr, all at the same time. I am miserable most of the time. My only personal refuge is ..Music, low stress, sleep, and Alcohol (and not suggesting any one use that funky little molecule) but we all know "we" do and it is only a short term answer. I am now 5 days sober but At least it took care of my very constant companions of severe Social Anxiety, my incessant thought processes and lossened me up to where i could function. Too bad they can't put liqour in a pill...Sorry I have strayed..see what it does. We surely know the animal we are dealing with but treating it( not just BP II) but the "Spectrum" is surely horrible , frustrating and tedious. Not just for the care givers but us patients , obviously as well. How else could a "soft BP II'er write this essay and feel sucidal at the same time..? Well many of us know very well it happens and Dr's. Don't seem to know exactly what to do. I have failed every single Mood Stabilizer so far, and of course my illness has taken on different colors over the last several tears ,however you-we, the Dr.s look at it It clearly just sucks.. Anxiety is a bitch. Have a great trip my friend We value your input and knowledge on this board and be safe .
