they seem to be swinging up and down, more little cyclone, or tornado bursts of intesnified feelings of what ever i am experiencing...anger, hopelessness, defeat, self loathing, envy, revultion.

i just feel shitty all the time the last month or so. like i am bouncing about in a tornado, all these crappy feelings spiraling around me, and whichever one i happen to bump into amps up all the negativity.

i am having a really hard time thinking any positive thoughts. nothing positive is the first thought i have whether it is upon waking daytime or at nite. i catch it, and basically violently shove a positive statement into the barrage of pessimism consuming my thoughts.

i know it is related to hormones and my adrenals. i can have a cup of coffee and get a mood boost as well as an energy boost. i met with my nutritionist the other day and got a few supplements. crossing my fingers.

Hoping the supplements help! Try to stay in a routine, I know I get screwed up when my routine changes......

Hang in there and vent as needed!

Love

Kewy,

Just a thought for what its worth I find listening to bright music can banish the beast for severral hours at a time, find something with a strong beat to it, one of my favourite songs is an oldie called Labamba it works every time.

love ya

Hi,

 

Bi-polar can be such a nightmare!!!! Here's what I take and it really helps. My doctor prescibes me 100 mg of lamotrigine, 1 mg clozapam. I started taking tramadol for a broken leg.....reduced to 50m 3x a day (have to buy that one fr India) and it really, really helps me (reducing anxiety and keeping mood leveled like lamotrigine(I love lamotrigine). Because my moods negativety, swings were insane--so I know what u are going thru!!!!!So sorry, so hard to keep life in check and do things. Hormone related--I am pre-menapause 45...started taking bio-identical hormones. Tesosterone/ and progesterone for pre--while estrogen is high and then switch over to estrogen when I get higher levels of testosterone. This means no menopause at all! Now, the above coctail that works for me may not work for u. You really have to push w/ doctors try new things and see what is best for u. I fought very hard to get 1 mg of colozapam (the only thing that helps w/ anxiety beside tramadol for me). Also, I was a heavy drinker---it really screwed things up for me. So, no more booze for me....negativity and craziness gets whacked!!! Best of Luck!!!
