My day was sh**. I emailed my T last night(while I was drunk so the email had so many errors) to tell her I was going off the meds and how I have been drinking a lot.

This morning she emailed me saying good luck and that therapy doesnt seem to be helping me and asked if there was any point in meeting next week

Then I couldnt focus on anything properly and kept screwing everything up at work which felt even worse when all I wanted was to go home and cry.

My husband took my alcohol to work with him for the night so I dont have anything to drink which is good but feels so bad. When he is on nights I cant leave the house though so its the one time when no matter how bad I want it I cant get any. I know alcohol is so horrible so I do want to stop I just cant seem to sometimes.

Oh god that is terrible, I am so sorry that your therapist couldn't bother to care. Please don't go off your meds they really are helping you even though you don't thank so. Have you talked to Pdoc about the recent issues. I know you don't want to hear it but drinking can and most of the time makes the depressed state worse. Feel better.

I believe my meds are making me much worse. I have never had issues like I have now before I started meds 2 years ago and Im so tired of it.

I dont plan to tell my pdoc anything at this point, I see no use in that. I have told him before and it doesnt help.

I definitely know how depressed alcohol can make me, I have had more than enough issues because of my drinking to know exactly what it does. I just dont care very much most of the time. Or I see something in my life is not the way I want it to be and start self destructing because I dont want to even be close if I cant have it all.

Heart Re: Bipolar Check In Thread #29

Yesterday, went to see sleep doc. Followed that by going to see "Bohemian Rhapsody." It's an outstanding movie! I am quite sure it will be nominated for awards.

The same guy who had played Mr. Robot also plays Freddie Mercury.
His name is: Rami Malek!

We then went to a local pub to listen to live music.

Trying to have more fun!

OMG, what a terrible T! Going off your meds without pdoc help is never a good idea. I tried that once, and I ended up in a crisis center because a lot of these meds you just can't stop cold turkey. Some of them, you can miss 1 or 2 doses, some even a few more, but then it catches up on you. Thank God I didn't pull that number when I was on Effexor (because that one was tough to stop even with a prolonged taper).

This morning she emailed me saying good luck and that therapy doesn't seem to be helping me and asked if there was any point in meeting next week. I have a simalar issue, no therapist will work with me if I'm not on medication. I had a T that decided I wasn't making progress and I never went back to her. Now I'm wth out a T. which is dangerous.

My old T told me as long as I showed up then I want help. so please keep that in mind.

Had a meltdown making tacos for dinner. Not sure why. Thoughts racing and too many things to keep track of cooking at once: taco shells, the meat, the rice, try to chop the veggies in between all this, daughter asking how to solve a confusing math problem. Just too much at once.

I guess at least the tacos turned out OK, but the rice was a loss.

Thanks EVERYONE for the kind words they really make a difference!

I have cervical and a shoulder problem(s)and went for first Physical Therapy appt. My right side is fine. My left is the problem .... excruciating pain in all kinds of motions. Thereís a huge difference

Canít even get some clothes on without my husband helping. Iím not use to needing help like this.

Anyway they want 2 visits a week but problem is I canít afford to go. So yeah.

I see Orthopedic Dr for consult tomorrow altho I donít know what good it will do if I canít afford to get any help.

This is just another painful problem on top of all my other pain problems just has me losing my shyt today.
