... them increased a few months ago. I still feel pretty bad though. I'm dealing with alot in my life right now. I don't get to see my therapist as much as I would like to and maybe that's some of the problem. I don't have anyone in my life (I have no friends) that I trust and no one to talk to that understands my illnesses. I have bipolar 2 with psychosis and schizo affective disorder. I try to hide some of my symptoms from my husband and family members and it's getting harder to do this. I honestly don't know what I should do?
You have to be honest with your family and they could help you. You need to also talk to your doctor/psychiatrist ... they may be able to add other medicines to the combination or they could up the doses of your current medicines, to control your symptoms better. All the best.
Hi, witchy! I agree with all the above, but I'd add that you might need to talk to your therapist about starting you on some Bipolar meds like Seroquel or Geodon and/or a mood stabilizer like lithium.
Wellbutrin and Zoloft are good meds for depressive disorders, but you need something to control the psychotic symptoms.
You might also ask if there're any support groups available where you might find a comfortable place to talk with others who are having similar problems to yours.
Best wishes, WCV
