    I need some help or healing, something

    I suffer from Bipolar Disorder and since I moved cities to get "better" treatment it only seems to get worse. Last three weeks I went from crying constantly and being deeply depressed, to now being in kind of a mixed episode which is hard to explain if you dont know the disorderm but throughout the whole time I have been here since August I have had horrible anxiety. Right now my moods are very unstable and my anxiety is through the roof and my psychiatrist isnt helping much. She has been out all week or I would give her a third call with in a month to tell her my issues. So my question is, is there anything healing wise I can do on my own? No one understands how bad it is for me right now its a nightnare.

    Have you been prescribed meds, or are you trying to handle this through psychiatry alone?


    If you are not getting meds, find a doctor who knows what to do, and what to prescribe. Then take your meds regularly. It's hard getting adjusted to the drugs, and it often takes a period of trial and error before the right combination and dosage is found, but once all that is set, you'll be much better.

    In the mean time, to help with the anxiety, try Yogi Stress Reducing Tea, with kava kava. That helped me some.

    I do know how bad it is for you, because I've been through it - and it is hell, and several other people here know as well, for the same reason. Hang in there - it can get better!

    I have been seeing Psyciatrists since 2006 and beren on meds consistently since then. I am med comliant. I was diagnosed at 20 in college, but tossed the meds cause they made me fat. I am a difficult case in that it seems the right coctail cant be found or hasnt been found yet and I am getting frustrated and feeling down about it, I am on 6 meds right now. As for the tea thanks for the suggestion but I hate tea.

    Well, the tea tastes like crap. It's actually medicine.

    Ii'm not a doctor, and I really can't help you, except to say that if you want to talk, I'll listen - if that helps.

    Best wishes!

    The only real things you can do are:
    Find a med that works in combination. Such as a anti depressant and a mood stabalizer together.
    Find a peer therapy group. You can look at http://www.nami.org/
    And start practicing behavioral modifications.

    Long story short. My mother was bi polar. And I am bi polar. And I got through things with the above lists.

    Thanks, I guess I'm just ranting because I came here to get better and end up worse than I was. I'm tired of it.

    I know. It's hard with a mental illness. It's a medical illness. But unfortunately our brains are very difficult to deal with. It's frustrating we have to keep finding ways to get better. Truth is we can just find ways to deal with it so it doesn't affect our entire lives. What I have found is that you will have to be your own advocate. You will have to speak up and take care of your treatment on a hands on basis. We usually slip through the cracks. But reach out to Nami. Find a group near you. And then you can start getting in the right direction. but first you must find a doctor to treat you with meds.

    A spell is not likely to fix bipolar disorder, but if you want the casting specifics im sure you could get a few opinions, and ideas, is that what you are looking for? because I would reccomend teas myself, but something simple, and not nessecarily with actual tea in it. If you want some kind of spell info, feel free to ask, I just was not sure that is what you wanted...

    I think you missed the part in my earlier post where I AM seeing a Psychiatrist nad on 6 medications from her, and yes I take them all.

    Maybe you need to talk to your doc and ask about different meds? The most frustrating part of bi polar is the distribution of meds. I watched my mother go nuts from the different meds. Some knocked her into complete sleep for hours on end. And some wired her too much. I went through the same thing. I also kept a mood journal. This helped me track my daily ups and downs along with what might be triggering them to be worse at certain times. You will have to be Sherlock Holmes I'm afraid.

    Look. Spells and teas will not cure a medical illness. I realize it's stretching out of sheer frustration. But you will have to just be more diligent. And do not give up.
