Question I just need someone to explain it to me...

I am cranky today so please fogive me....

I just need someone to answer some questions for me and to just explain it all to me.

I have been treating ADHD for so long and now think there might be Bipolar.

One thing I have noticed in my life is that I have some major cycles in my life. THey seem to happen every One and a half to Three YEars.

Life will be going along just hunky dory then poof it all goes to
*%*@. Is that a Bipolar thing or what ?

How do the cycles work ??

I tried to answer this a few minutes ago..and got an error message.

Princess... if you're seeing someone for your ADHD... talk to them openly and honestly. Tell them you think it's possible and explain to them just as you have with us that you have been wondering and about the cycle pattern you're seeing.

I'm here if you need me..and big hugs.

Re: I just need someone to explain it to me...

I am not seeing anyone for my ADHD. All the "shrinks" I have seen are not ADHD doctors and I just get bored of them and feel that they are not helping me.. I am tired of the mood swings, weight gain and loss.
(Well I like the weight loss)

I just want answers and thought my doctor would help but it seems that I have to do all the work myself. I DONT WANT TOO. I just want to feel better.

Ah yeah I know that feeling. The doctors can only do so much, it's YOUR life and health after all...no matter what you're going to have to learn about what's going on, either from them telling you or from your own research. That's how you can fix it

I totally understand this though, it feels like so hard to get started

Re: I just need someone to explain it to me...

I can understand that. Have you read through the informational posts in the bipolar section?

Although I have helped many people... I don't know as much as I should about Bipolar.

Hopefully others will answer your post. In the meantime, you can always pm me if you need to talk.

Re: I just need someone to explain it to me...

Yes that is true. I am very good at starting, but so good at finishing. I want to get better.. But the meds sound scary. It seems like if you even forget one dose you are messed up. I am worried about what all this will do to my kids. Not that they havent had to deal with my mood swings, fudge ups, and all the jazz...

I am also hating these shakes I am having .... ARGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

... do you have anxiety attacks, too?.... along with the mood swings, etc?

.... when you're afraid.. of what the meds might or might not do... think of what it might be like for your kids to have even the slightest chance to see a whole different you, if they did work.

Not everyone is the same. Why not give it a chance? It might open up a whole new world for the 3 of you.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Re: I just need someone to explain it to me...

can you explain your cycles in a bit more detail? It may help me get a better idea. If you can't...that's ok.
