Sorry it has taken so long to reply only just looked at my messages, forgot my password for weeks!
Still busy working, still busy with my level 3 BSL! Have applied for a new job already!
Thanks for telling me about you're hearing aids, we don't have anything like that in the UK!
If you're dog is anything like mine I know how you feel, he is 8 this year and he still acts like a puppy! trying to breed him to calm him down.
Hope to speak to you again soon!
I haven't really signed up to anything like this before, i don't quite know where to start!
Wow mum of 3 gosh how do you cope? My auntie has four girls all different ages they are already a nightmare!
Never heard of widex hearing aids before would like to know more.
Have to go now have research to do for my BSL clips
Will talk to you soon, might take a while for me to reply am very busy at work!
i guess that might be due to the fact that for some pdocs bipolar tends to be the lastest diagnosis de jour. at any rate, i'm definitely going to make sure i have as much documentation as possible because *finally* after one and a half years, my meds are working! i haven't rapid cycled for 7 days now. yay!
that's an excellent idea because my tdoc and pdoc both say my bipolar is considered "severe" due to my psychosis, delusions and paranoia. i have problems with all 3 big time if i'm off my meds and moderately if i'm taking them.
thanks *so* much for your detailed response! i appreciate it!
i have a question for you. if they do an intake on me, does that mean i have to go through the entire testing process again to be re-diagnosed with bipolar? i've already been diagnosed as atypical bipolar I and really don't want to risk the possiblity of a pdoc misdiagnosing me with bipolar II or something else like major depressive disorder. i have severe psychotic and delusionary symptoms that really need to be addressed and if i'm off my meds, i'm a complete disaster.
i'm so glad to meet another person here on ad who has bipolar!
that would be great if you could give me the name of a doctor in arizona. right now i'm working with a wonderful psychiatrist and therapist and it will be difficult leaving them when i move this summer.
do you by any chance know if the doctor you mentioned believes in giving anti-depressants to people with bipolar? the reason i ask is because i experience depression during this time of year (due to our cold weather) and so far, the anti-depressant i'm on (fluoxetine) is working pretty well in addressing it. i'd hate to be taken off of it because a doctor didn't agree that i should be taking it due to the fact that it has the potential to cause mania.
thanks for letting me know about how dangerous tucson can be. i'll have to keep that in mind when deciding where i want to live. the more i think about it, the more i'm leaning towards moving to mesa since one of my sisters will be relocating there within the next 2 years.
