Bipolar Thoughts

The following essay goes in tandem with the post directly previous to it. Please take the time to read them both.

Well, the ‘no depression’ grace period from the ECT is officially over.

My doctor has put me back on Latuda (for depression), upped my Lithium, and put me back on Klonopin (anxiety). He has also given me his personal cell phone number and did the standard suicide screening. He appears more concerned by my current state then I am. I just want to lie in bed all day. I go back to see him mid-December.

How do you know when things are starting to slide for you, one direction or the other?

You don’t for sure. But, the longer you live with the disease the more you sense a change.

Today is one of those days. It started yesterday, actually. All I wanted to do was go home and go to bed. When I did finally go lay in bed after dinner my wife and daughter kept coming into my room to bother me. You would think that going to bed, at anytime, would be a sign to leave someone alone. But especially going to bed before 8pm when normal bedtimes hover around 10:30. Not in my house, apparently. Not with a wife who should know the meaning of that early departure from the living room.
