Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Am writing this at 3 AM. Just woke up from a nightmare.

I don't really think about work anymore during the day but I still on occasion have nightmares on it. I was discriminated there and confronted my company about it twice. I have no regrets about the first time I confronted them but I do regret how I handled their discrimination the second time. My company believed I was discriminated against the 1st time around but I could never convince them I was the second time.

They hurt my reputation with someone I respected by speaking to them about me and explaining it to them the way they saw it in their eyes (while I was never given a chance to explain it from my viewpoint). I dreamt of that person tonight.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Last week was full of horrible or vivid dreams, i wake up at least 3-4 times every night
but can get 8-10 hours of sleep
I was talking to my mom today, i will be at home on 5th january(this saturday)
I have an appointment with my mother's doctor on 7th january , i am going to visit doctor with my mother. Also i have been going to him for 6 years at least i guess

It will be really different experience, i went to him with my mother many times but never visited as diagnosed with bipolar II ( here another doctor diagnosed)

I have many things to tell , i havent visited him for 4 months , last time that i visited him i was tappering off Lexapro , everything was beautiful , i was quitting all medicines except my ADHD medication

I talked to my mom today, she said that she never experienced a mixed episode
It really feels weird, i guess not same for everyone also she has bipolar I


My mind is full , i must summarize everything that passed in 4 months
I am talking to my mother daily, telling her how i am
i hope that it will be helpful as a 3rd observer on me

I have many things to ask in my mind, i am a stranger to this topic
I read a lot about depression,ADHD,medicines in past
But this area is like a outer space for me
I must learn as much as possible about this area

Cant wait to see him, also i think this impatience is boosted by my ADHD because i am not using my medicine since my situation isnt stable yet

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Ella had a delay today because of in school testing so I set no alarm. You all know that I am up at the butt crack of dawn anyway. This was the ONE time I overslept. I slept until 830! And we had to leave the house at 9. We were out of milk. Some jerk in this house but the nearly empty carton back in the fridge and this was after she poured her cereal. So she ate it dry like a trooper. I never went grocery shopping and had nothing to pack for lunch. She has bought food at school before but its expensive crap food. We decided to go to wawa and she would bring that. She decided to order a salad and not a sandwich and they were so slow I thought they had to pick and chop the veggies first rather than just making it. I got my coffee there. Got her to school. Had to slam on my brakes- coffee went flying. Just walked in and remembered I was supposed to go to the bank and get money for Jakes's ot copay. I am going to ask him if he will cover it so i can take a breather.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I’ve been in my current position for around a year now. I’m not unhappy at all, but it seems like it’s about time to make a move. I was considering school psychology, but the masters program is 3 years long. I’ve already done 5 years of grad school. I’ve been out of school for over 9 years now and the thought of going back is kind of terrifying:

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Allergies are supposed to improve after there's been a hard freeze. But even
with allergy meds I'm sneezing, and blowing my nose, and my eyes are dry
and itchy. Also not breathing well at night which causes vivid, weird dreams.

I'm allergic to dust (I think more specifically dustmites) so weather doesn't affect my allergies unfortunately. Terrible thing to be allergic to since dust is everywhere, always.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Does anyone else ever feel so overwhelmed that they just shut down? I actually become non-responsive, and people get worried. My head always feels like a computer with waaaay too many tabs open at once, one of them is playing music, and I can't figure out which one it is.

Good analogy.

This is very common in Autism Spectrum and somewhat common in ADHD.

Well, I definitely don't have autism, but I do have a major anxiety disorder.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I was reading a article about stimulant adjunction in bipolar
there were some information about trials,groups, how many of them experienced mania-like symptoms how they responded etc.

ofc these researches are done with very limited small groups but from my side overall view is promising.

i am not stabilized yet , i still have mood swings but co-morbid ADHD worsens it. I must start taking my ADHD medicine as soon as possible i think.
I am not sure when is "as soon as possible"

But here the doctor that i went , told to me "you can keep using concerta , you don't have to stop"

Tomorrow i have a flight , i will go to home ,i have an appointment with my mom's doctor on monday and he said that "lets wait a month until your situation become more stabile"

Somehow i need to start from somewhere , this situation must be stabilized as quick as possible
i want to have a long-term view

My situation is still bad, i am thinking about quitting smoking but i am not sure that can i handle it while i am experincing this

quitting smoke would have positive effect on my anti-psychotic medications, but also withdrawal can be bad, i must ask it to doctor too

but also smoking is the only joy that i have now, i am not sure

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Preparing my baggage, i will leave here in 2 hours and get into taxi.Then i will wait about 1 hour at airport. I hope that there wont be any delay on flight time
I really hate this kind of travelling , at least an hour is going to airport , coming from airport,an hour waiting at airport, flight takes 1 hour 15 mins at least
If i need to wait for baggage at airport it takes at least 20 minutes too
I spent almost 4 hours with boring things in a day.

I like bus ride because you can watch surroundings during travelling
but flight feels like sitting at same point for hours and it is too boring for me

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Guys...something's wrong.

I'm confused. I'm scared.
What does this mean?

Should I see a doctor?
Or maybe it's nothing to do with anything physical.
Maybe I should see a therapist?

I woke up this morning...
And I started to clean my bedroom!
Unmedicated!!

What's wrong with me guys?
I should be worried right?
