Glad that's working for you quietgirl2538! :)

I haven't posted here much because since my meds have I think gotten near perfect in dosage I haven't had any major issues. I've mainly been stable with no compulsions or major if any cycling.

Yesterday I went to the movies and had too much caffeine. That + crash from my ADHD meds = a bad time. Didn't sleep well and have had paranoia and compulsions all morning. I had that last night as well. I'm off today so that's good. Gonna try to relax and get sleep tonight.

I think after one month my Lamictal is kicking in. April was a solid month of major depressive mood, and May has largely been rapid cycling between slightly down to hypomanic, often in the same day. I've had 2 days of euthymic mood now and I'm hoping it's a trend.

Usually it's not so easy to describe my mood. It oscillates a lot. I started this week a bit depressed, empty inside and wanting really hard to do something but don't know what. Now I don't feel particularly depressed, but this will to do something is still there and nothing I do can satisfy the urge. It's as if I have forgot to do something really important that I used to enjoy doing but I just can't remember what it is. I wish I was able to do everything I want at the same time. I feel incomplete and restless. Olanzapine's been helping, I guess... this feeling would get much worse if I were unmedicated, for sure.

I'm probably going to wind up IP soon. Doc won't help, hallucinating, "psychotic thoughts," blah blah blah blah. I want to make a statement about how bad "help" is before I lose the ability to though.

So flat. Which I guess I should be thankful for given I've been depressed and/or super agitated & suspicious lately.

Woke up today feeling as if I was having a heart attack. After some deep breathing and an attempt at meditating I was able to calm my heart down a bit, but I have to be cautious. Can't remember what I dreamed about but I'm sure it has to do with the way I woke up. Something I noticed is that my dreams dictate the way I am going to feel the next day. Seems that today isn't going to be easy...
