Down Cycle
cenunn posted:
I have been on this roller coaster ride for more then 20 years and you would think that I would know by now that I have to stay on meds. However I hate taken medications and when I cycle up and become 10 ten tall and bullet proof I feel like my brain suddenly healed itself and I am better. However now I am on the downward slide and I am living in a new place and I am feeling helpless. The depression is over whelming and I am trying to convince myself that it is only because I had a baby. But I just don't feel right.
Has anyone else had the feeling of being hung over without the benefit of drinking or partying the night before. Baby even slept all night and I feel like I have a drinking problem, only I dont drink.

could be post partum depression adding to the mix. you have a child now, so you aren't just taking your meds for you, but for your child as well. think of it that way, and maybe you will be able to stay on your meds.
