Weird Manic Episode
Posted 20 October 2010 - 11:20 PM
I'm having the weirdest manic episode. I've had them before, the worst lasting about two weeks. I couldn't sleep, my mind was racing, I was exhausted, pissy, and miserable.
This time, I haven't been sleeping well for about two weeks. One night I couldn't sleep at all. I'm tired, but not exhausted. I'm thinking, but not having racing thoughts. My mood feels pretty normal, sort of pissy. My biggest concern is that I can't make myself eat. I've NEVER had this issue, I'm always uncontrollable and have a tendency to binge. I haven't eaten hardly a thing since Sunday. I'm trying, and I know I have to eat, but food is tasting pretty disgusting and I feel like I can't choke it down. I'm not feeling weak or anything, but I'm sure I will soon. I went to my therapist yesterday, she said she was sure it was the change in meds and if I don't start feeling better in the next couple I should call my pdoc.
I'll definitely call my doc if I don't start eating soon. Anyone else ever experienced this with food? I never thought I would turn down a cookie, but I can't even make myself eat those.

I haven't had a loss of appetite such as yours. I did eat less at one point but now they can't make enough cookies in the world for me. I eat as much as a family of 4 and I am still at my trim high school weight. weird huh? I really hope you can get this straightened out soon. I will be willing to share those cookies with you when you do.
I would definitely call your pdoc and say what's up with this! I'll be thinking of you. Why wait? Keep us updated.

I really wouldn't wait too long before seeing your doc. The combo of not sleeping and not eating sounds potentially dangerous to me, and the last thing you need is some kind of breakdown to deal with. Meanwhile have you tried taking some liquid foods to keep you going?

Thank you all for the support. After about three more days, I developed a craving for cheetos. I started eating just as if I hadn't had any problems. A couple of days after that, I started sleeping better again. Crisis averted! I have to say, I really got a lot of reading done late at night when I couldn't sleep. I read 10 books in about 2 1/2 weeks.
Love you all,
