    Feeling Confused
    lexismom11 posted:
    I recently spent a good amount of time in the hospital and I got a different diagnosis than what I was expecting. I was diagnosed with bipolar I and Borderline Personality Disorder. I am feelig like I was kicked in the stomach or something because I was not expecting that. I feel a little confused about the diagnosis and I am not sure what to think or where to go from here. This makes me feel a little lost. It also makes me feel a little crazy.

    You are not crazy. Im sorry for the way you are feeling.
    SFGiantsgirl responded:
    I agree your not crazy lot of people suffer with these disorders.

    What meds did they put you on?
    lexismom11 replied to SFGiantsgirl's response:
    I was put on Resperidol, Citalopram, and Abilify. I also take xanax for anxiety. I hope this combination of medications works out well for me. I am tired of feeling like this. Although I am starting to feel better than I did when I first went into the hospital.
    lexismom11 replied to lexismom11's response:
    Is it normal to feel like I am "drugged"? I am just wondering because I have not been taking this combination of meds for very long. I am hoping it goes away and I can feel normal again.
    SFGiantsgirl replied to lexismom11's response:
    I'm also in reperidal and celexa the respridal took about two weeks before I felt better. I was tired all the time then it went away. I too was on Abilify.
    SFGiantsgirl replied to SFGiantsgirl's response:
    What dose are you on?
    lexismom11 replied to SFGiantsgirl's response:
    I am glad to hear the tired feeling went away. I am hoping that happens for me as well.

    I am on 40mg of citalopram, 5mg of Abilify, and 1.5mg of Risperidol. I know the last two are relatively low doeses, but I hope that is all I will need. I just feel so tired and I can't wait for this feeling to go away. I have been taking these meds for almost two weeks so hopefully it is very soon.
    SFGiantsgirl replied to lexismom11's response:
