I was diagnosed with bi polar June of last yr, and finally in March of this yr they got me in to see the therapist. They have had me on 3 different medicines. First, one was Invega, which I got major headaches and diarrhea. Second, Lartuda and got restless leg from that one. The one I'm on now seems to be doing alright. I get really light headed when I get up real fast, dry mouth, and it makes my anxiety level hit the roof.
I've know I was bi polar since I was about 15, but no one in my family believed me. Been on a really long journey, to even get me to admit that it got so bad that I needed meds to help me. I hope being here will help me get through this with other people who understand what I am going through.
