.5 atavan twice daily. the dr is convinced I have bipolar two. I feel I have a tendency to ger ocd and anxiety and depression. I am taking this class called dbt which I think will help me. they also diagnosed me with borderline. what a mass. I feel like I am overmedicated, and the class and some ocd excercises and changing where i live and what I do will help. I have terrible anxiety over this. what do i do?
Let me first get some clarification. You are taking 10 .5mg ativan twice daily for a total of 10mgs aday? Seems like alot to me. Do be careful.
I would encourage you to keep up the classes and learn some exercises for the ocd. If your living situation is causing you mush stress and moving is on option then maybe it would be for the better. Moving in and of it self can be very stressful, but only you can make that decision. What do you do? Is it a very stressful job?
I have found that I have had to change my life style to one that is less stressful because I, too, am bipolar type 2. When I was able to reduce the stress and stablize on my meds, my life got a lot better. I have not had a bad episode of mood swings in a long time.
