Medication Change

I saw my psychiatrist today and he said he was not surprised that I was depressed. He said that when he adjusted the mood stabilizer he knew the next step would be the antidepressant. He increased the antidepressant today and wanted to make sure I was seeing my therapist. Sometimes I so wish I weren't bipolar. Having PTSD and bipolar makes it so hard to keep all my medicine adjusted. I not only take medication from my psychiatrist but several other doctors. I feel like a walking pill box!

On another note someone left a Christmas present on  our front door step. There was no card to say who it was from so it is a total unexpected gift. There is God hidden in so many things. Alice had her mammogram today and the told her everything looked good.

Glad your medicines were changed, and happy about Alice's mammogram. Bless whoever left you a gift.

It can be tough to have meds switching all the time. I sure hope your counselor/therapist is teaching you coping strategies along the way so that reliance on medication isn't the main "help". Stay strong my friend. I hope you find that balance within the week as the antidepressant drug levels balance out.
Stay strong!
And Merry Christmas to you and yours if we don't catch each other again before then.
