I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT I CAN ONLY TAKE 1 MEDICATION FOR ALL CATEGORIES OF MY CONDITIONS, "PICK ONE!" THE DOCTOR SAYS......UMMMMMMMMM DUH~ THE ONE W/ MORE UNCONTROLLABLE SYMPTOMS AND DISTRACTS MY DAILY LIFE MORE! THE BIPOLAR. I HAVE NIGHT MARES THAT PHYSICALLY HURT, SCARE AND GIVE ME VIOLENT FEELINGS. I NEED SUPPORT AND HELP! ~~~JUST TRYING TO KEEP THIS SHORT AND SWEET........XOXO, NIKI
Hello Niki Hun, Please forgive my very late reply. There isnt always someone on the board, so replies may be late. I know it can be frustrating when your wanting help right away, but try and be patient because usually someone will help you as soon as possible.
Im very sorry that your having so MANY problems all at one time. Oh my goodness, you sure do have a lot to deal with. I cant understand why the Dr. would only want to treat only one condition. That just doesnt sound right. Perhaps you can get a second opinion. As for the night mares, I have them all the time too. I dream all night long and if the dream starts out nice, it always ends up with me fighting for my life, trying to save my daughter and dog (I love my dog). I wake up remembering parts of my nightmare and start to get anxious and worried about my family. I think my medications are causing the dreams. If your only taking one med., its prob. most likely all your conditions that are not being treated, that are causing your nightmares. All though, some Bipolar meds can cause nightmares as well.
Oh my goodness, here I go again, blah blah blah. Nothing is ever short with me.
Take care sweetie. Hugs and muahs to you
