Okay, quick update. J stopped taking the second medication and she seems stable again. Hopefully this was just a small bump in the road. Keeping my fingers crossed…
Again October 20, 2013
And…here we go again. If there is anyone out there in anonymous blog-land who actually comes back more than once or twice to read about the shit-show I call my life, you should probably change channels now. You’ve heard this before, multiple times. But, it is my life, this is my blog ABOUT my life, so….
J’s meds are not working. She has been on the same one for a whole year now, and that is incredible for her. Her bipolar ups and downs (she had rapid cycling…ha-ha, I typed “rabid” by accident; that fits, too) started getting crazy about three months ago, so her doctor added another drug to help the first one. He slowly upped it to the proper dosage over a month, but it didn’t work. So, two weeks ago he weaned her back off that one and started a new one.
It’s not working. The voices in her head returned. She is more aggressive than ever, and spent most of her monthly paycheck in a week.
I just want her to be happy and stable. She deserves it. I deserve it. Is it too much to ask?
Back to the drawing board. Again.
