Where I live I have to get a second opinion from another psych if I want to keep getting dex. Is it like this in other places?

Good morning, Jacinta!! I've been up since 5:30 AM Central Standard time. It is probably around Midnight where you are. It may even be Wednesday all ready. Anyway, the rest of the world is starting to wake up. You Australians are just ahead of the rest of us!!

any way going back to getting this 2nd opinion, i went to see the new doc yesterday and of course my doc had sent him a letter. My doc tells the new doc that my dsm iv score for ADD was so high it catapulted me into the Guinness book of records. Now I don't know if this is something to be proud of or not.

Now I don't know if this is something to be proud of or not.Mine were really high too. I just take it for what its worth. So I have a really severe case of ADHD...and I treat it as such. Tough luck if anybody else does not like that ya know? Its my life and its your life too!

Hey, I'm sorry ur sick,,just sign off whenever. It was really cool to have a live chat at last!Thanks! I am glad somebody cares if I am sick, my family seems to think I am in some way immortal, impervious to germs and also the household NT!

I am either one incredible person or my family suffers from serious delusions...:D

Theres an Oz song called razors edge sung by an indigenous band called goanna. It goes 'living on razors edge, trying to catch the sun.' I think a lot of my life has been like that..I'm not complaining..its been a hell of a trip..

mmm.. I guess with over 6000 posts since May last year you don't sleep much either.;) well I liked to play the games a lot at one time. And many of my posts are in my creative and journaling threads, but you are correct. I do have a high post count for my time here at ADDF. I once was told by staff that I reached 2000 legitimate posts faster than anybody had ever done it. I wonder if I ought to be proud of that?

I think a lot of my life has been like that..I'm not complaining..its been a hell of a trip..Sounds like a song that I'd probably like :) and I do know what a goanna is too. Interesting name for a band! Probably makes a great tattoo for a band member.

well, if your living on the bleeding edge..it could have been your salvation..I would have to agree with that! I cannot imagine having lead any life other than my own. I think I do very well, all things considered (and there sure are a LOT of thingsd to consider!).

I hope you rest well, I know how hard it can be to get a simple night's rest sometimes. Its got to be hard being in a different time zone from so many other members.

I once had a partner who had 'manic depression' as it was called back then. whilst he was an extremely intelligent, sensitive and gentle soul things became a bit unpredictable when he went off his meds. For example, he was looking after the kids once while I went down to the corner shop..when I got home they were all having a water balloon fight...in the house!..none of them could understand my annoyance..the kids thought it was xmas and bf had no idea of the inappropriateness of the situation. I could never get angry with him but neither could I sustain a relationship with him due to the severity of his illness. However, I have always been extremely sensitive to the challenges faced by those with bi-polar. He ,tragically, committed suicide a few years after we split. This world was never meant for one as beautiful as him.

Stories like that remind me of why I campaign so hard here at ADDF for people with bipolar to turn away from the alluring charms of mania and get medicated.

jacinta
03-08-07, 10:19 AM
If only it could be turned on at will-ie when you needed to get the housework done..and it would become a national asset!

Crazy~Feet
03-08-07, 10:23 AM
That is some people's argument against medicating themselves. I have to admit I sure wish I could have kept a small degree of the hypomania and just got rid of the depression but it does not work that way! :( When I think of how much I used to get done and still have energy to burn I have to wonder some days. Then I look at my family and remember how irritable and hostile I was then too....

jacinta
03-08-07, 10:37 AM
BP is probably one of the most challenging things to deal with. I mean I don't mind a bit of a mood swing because I don't know how you can appreciate the good if you haven't had some bad. But the extremes of BP are scary esp. for loved ones. And the pain of watching someone you care about deteriorate into mania or depression at those extremes is not fun. Plus the person with BP is obviously distressed at not being able to find that 'balance' and feeling as if they don't fit in. The world really can be alienating for some.

Crazy~Feet
03-08-07, 10:40 AM
Ya know what J? We could have used that post a while ago in another thread, where I was saying essentially the same thing. Perhaps it did not carry much weight coming from me though, since I am on the inside looking out and can only imagine how my family feels, or just take their words for it. Coming from a partner like that might hit a lot harder than for it to come from another bipolar who is now medicated.

jacinta

At least people like us know there is a bleeding edge...I'd hate to be ignorant. catchya later.

Yea but its all good, Jacinta. I love anime and its nice to find out that my little buddy Vhan is an Otaku too :). That was a terribly interesting discussion IMO.

mmm..was I being :rolleyes: oversensitive or :D imaginative - I'd be interested to know which. I wonder if this had anything to do with my latest experience of seeing something last night before it happened..only about 6 weeks after the last similar experience..frequency modulation..i'm tuning in..


ps Im a word wizard -now I'm questioning ur 'terribly interesting'.

Crazy~Feet
03-10-07, 11:17 AM
Round here 'terribly interesting' is a good thing. :) it really was very interesting to exchange a few anime comments with Vhan and I made some more anime comments to him later on in another thread too.

My usertitle does say that I go off-topic easily after all. ;)

#$%^#..i cant even post in another thread..vhan finds it..

..anime = ?? = air freshener??

Where do I buy it?

O, sorry jacinta, didn't mean to carry the conversaton in the nore "off topic" direction :p

I suffer from insomnia. Have you ever had restless legs? Sometimes the insomnia is like having restless legs all over including in your head. My bf says i'm a can of worms. With insomnia I feel like its climbing a mountain that you never get to the top of, or a an itch that is nearly always there..you might get a bit of sleep but then it starts all over again. It inevitably leads to depresssion and frustration but depression is not the illness- its a by product of the insomnia.
