Hello jenniecol2000. Mentall illness today, is accepted as equal to having a physical illness. Nothing to be ashamed of. I suggest you see a health care worker, such as a psychiatrist to receive an evaluation, then follow up treatment such as pharmacology for example may be started. Regards pledge
Hello jennicol2000, & welcome to the site. I totally agree with Pledge on his answer. There is no shame in having these issues & there are so many great medications out there today that can help you. I also agree that you need to see a psychiatrist as they are the experts when it comes to these medications. The help is there, all you have to do is ask. Most of these meds do take time to work, so please don't get discouraged in the beginning. Sometimes it can take 4 weeks or a bit longer to see what helps. It also may take some time to find the right combination. My husband also suffers from bipolar, & it took years to convince him to see a psychiatrist get on medication. He is a changed man today. We have many members that also suffer from bipolar, & this is a wonderful site for support so please stay with us. Wishing you the best...
Pledge is completely right. There is nothing for you to be ashamed of. If you're finding it difficult to talk about everything that you're dealing with when you see your dr, you might try writing down your questions, thoughts and/or feelings. You could take this with you when you see the Dr and use it as notes for yourself or just give it to the dr to look over for himself. The more information the dr has, the better able he will be to treat you.
The people on this site are wonderful and will give you all the support and encouragement you could ask for. I hope this helps you some and hang in there, things will get better!
