I'm glad to hear that you weren't hurt in the accident, Judy. Can your therapist see you anytime soon? She might be able to help you find another psychiatrist who was as helpful as this one.

Judy, I think you should take your psychiatrist at his word. He just didn't think he could properly help you from a distance. I do understand what a blow losing part of your support system can be. :( But it doesn't mean that you'll always have this problem. I think it's not at all uncommon to have to try a few psychiatrists before you get one that is a good fit. I know I did. But that doesn't mean any more than that not every psychiatrist is a good match for every patient. You'll find another good match. Especially since you've had a good experience with this one, and know what to look for.

Bipolar I is like diabetes. Yes, we probably have to learn to accept that this is part of our life, and that we'll never have the total freedom to do what "normal" people take for granted. But that doesn't mean we can't have good lives. It just means we need to work a bit more than some to maintain our quality of life. And that sometimes we'll feel better than other times. I have known you to feel a lot better than this, Judy. And I have every confidence that you will again. Just hold on through this very very understandably rough patch.

(And don't forget to spend some time watching your little ones sleep. I find watching my son sleep is a very soothing activity for me.)
