What are racing thoughts? Depakote?

Posted by D minor on August 20, 2004, at 19:34:21


I posted this on the regular page, but I thought I'd put it here to, just in case.

I just registered so I'm new, but I've been reading messages for a while. I was diagnosed with Major Depression last year. Now my new pdoc thinks that episode may have been a mixed episode and that I, therefore, may be Bipolar. He wants to put me on Depakote, which I am terrified of. Does it really make you loose your hair?

Anyway, I'm not so sure I'm bipolar. What is the official definition of racing thoughts? I've had repetative thoughts and horrible thoughts that kept me up at night. But mainly I had this feeling like my brain was screaming or was on fire. Does that sound crazy? It was like there wasn't enough stimulation for my brain, like the world was moving to slow and I just wanted to bang my head on something.

Please let me know what your bipolar experience has been if it's been anything like mine.

Peace and love-
