i had so much in my life, when i look back at the past
i ask myself , do i really have a personality or my episodes just drive me ?

Last 4 months feels like 4 years
That may be a common diagnostic term in Turkey, but the rest of us live in
other places and have never heard of it.

I think my personality has changed over the years depending on what I find
interesting, and who I am spending time with.

I thought Karma was an international world because Turkish psychatry doesnt have it's literature ( i guess with some kind of exceptions like "karma" episode)

I've only seen the word used in the Buddhist sense of earning whatever future
life one is given.

Maybe it's been coming for a long time and we're just lucky enough to see it.

And i have one more question , when i become more balanced
Can only mood stabilizer treatment keep me under control ? Without an anti-psychotic.
Please don't chase the hypomania. Much less the mania. It's not sustainable and it'll **** up your brain the more time you spend in an augmented state. My best friend chased it. I know what I'm talking about. He's not here anymore. Don't try to bring this upon yourself. It's better than drugs, he told me. He never took non prescription drugs. He barely drank ever. He's gone now.

I know , i am not going to chase it because it never stays like it is used to be

yes it is better than any drug , it is hard to express those feelings

Like your natural self is a mental doping machine

But i won't chase it because i know what comes after

Also when it turns to be , i mean whole mental state tends to psychotic, irrational thoughts
it is like having bad trip of a recreational drug(rage,being fragile and sensitive,irratibility etc.), actually i had them when it was transforming to mixed episode but i don't like talking about them


how do i know? i abused recreational drugs in past

Re: Finally Got The Answer

I've taken illicit drugs before. I live in a recreational and medical state plus I ran away for a week to Paris and then Amsterdam (so much more child friendly, I just don't speak Dutch; we both speak French) and my peace corps sister and her daughter, who are based in stuggart. I went to private boarding school and then university, drugs were and are everywhere I would strongly encourage you to go drug free, just to see if it is exacerbating anything. I did all sorts of drugs in college and none made me crack when I did them, but my thoughts, prior to starting treatment, became so distorted and I believed I was living a double life. And I actually was. I'd spend hours per day thinking about and plotting and acting based on delusions. And then I'd try to appear "normal" whenever socializing/being in public, which I gave up after a few months. Spending less and less time in the outside world.

I don't think my smoking pot off and on made me mentally ill, though sometimes it doesn't help things. It can actually totally backfire on me. Be careful.

Even if i want , i can't drink alcohol even. I have a strict rule, i never mix medications with anything

Bipolar + It's medications make it impossible to try or use anything

i stopped using any recreational drug 5 years ago
stopped drinking alcohol 2-3 years ago ( because of concerta and insomnia)

But i always had a tendency to abuse drugs in far past

I read that recreational drugs can be very dangerous or make worse psychosis
Also same for Bipolar, can trigger Manic episodes

these medications and disorders had serious impact on my social life, i made friends in those kind of groups, i was spending my free time in places or with people like that(old days ^^ )

Re: Finally Got The Answer

Rapid cycling
"Most people who meet criteria for bipolar disorder experience a number of episodes, on average 0.4 to 0.7 per year, lasting three to six months.[101] Rapid cycling, however, is a course specifier that may be applied to any of the above subtypes. It is defined as having four or more mood disturbance episodes within a one-year span and is found in a significant proportion of individuals with bipolar disorder.[30] These episodes are separated from each other by a remission (partial or full) for at least two months or a switch in mood polarity (i.e., from a depressive episode to a manic episode or vice versa).[17] The definition of rapid cycling most frequently cited in the literature (including the DSM) is that of Dunner and Fieve: at least four major depressive, manic, hypomanic or mixed episodes are required to have occurred during a 12-month period.[102] Ultra-rapid (days) and ultra-ultra rapid or ultradian (within a day) cycling have also been described.[103] The literature examining the pharmacological treatment of rapid cycling is sparse and there is no clear consensus with respect to its optimal pharmacological management."

I read this on wikipedia
I guess what i have been experiencing was ultra-ultra rapid

Re: Finally Got The Answer

I called my doctor today, i think he is a little bit annoyed because i am trying to diagnose myself and watch my own process

He said that it is intellectualiziation of my own illness
it will cause cumulative thought process with no ending

i guess i should stop trying to be my own doctor

if i started medicine faculty and became a psychatrist , i could do it for myself

Bipolar causes behaviors, but at it's root it's a neurological disorder.
Our thinking didn't cause the disorder, and the disorder can't be cured by
doing positive thinking.

Unfortunately, doctors don't know very much about the way the brain works,
so we need doctors who will work WITH us, not just FOR us, and understand
that we know what we're feeling and are actually living with our disorders.

Re: Finally Got The Answer

My mom's doctor said, other doctor hurried with diagnosing he said that "we must overwatch your process, maybe too much medicine pushing caused hypomania-like state, u were on 20mg lexapro and 150mg trazadone+ concerta"

he prescribed 2.5mg ativan expidet , i use half at day time and use another half at evening.

Ativan(lorazepam) cut my mood swings like knife , i am so thankful to my mother's doctor
It also feels different if i am not bipolar II, weird situation, i trust my mom's doctor he knows us better than any doctor

My current situation : horrible mood swings stopped, rarely changes. most likely it evolves to depression or i am just overcoming trauma

currently i am on Quetiapine 300mg XR + 500mgx2 Sodium Valproate + Ativan 1.25mg x2

My next appointment with doctor is tuesday , i will tell him my process , probably he is going to prescribe an Anti depressant or dont know

That extreme mood swings , karma episode or madness or whatever
it was worst thing that ever i saw in my life

I welcome depression reallly, that melancholic peace
