Have been diagnosed bipolar and can't sleep without medicationHi there
When I was 15 I had a phychosis and put on medication (Epilim and Serequel) I was on them both until I got pregnant and came off the epilim which was fine. When I had my baby I couldnt wake up properly to feed her in the night so decided to decrease my medication... which I did too fast and stopped sleeping.
*had another phychosis
-stopped sleeping properly
-became really intolerant
-became paranoid that everyone hated me and were always talking about me behind my back.
then I got worse and started thinking that I was invincable and didnt actually need to go to sleep, god was apparently sending me signs and telling me to drive really fast.Which I did and ended up crashing and being put in hospital as I was sure that people with cameras were following me.
Not a nice experience
-got put back on medication, they changed it to something else but it made me depressed and I couldnt sleep so they changed it back to original meds. 400mg epilim and 200mg serequel and a sleeping tablet if needed.
-still wasnt helping me sleep very well
-got really down and tearful
-anxious about everything.
-ended up having a healing which helped and then went on calcium and magnesium tablets.
which helped too.
I still cannot sleep at times
Get really restless and cannot sleep without my partner as he makes me feel safe. (I also worry and can't sleep if he is out at night)
Mood is average, do get down at times.
Lots of the time I have to make myself get up and do things, if I didnt have a baby I would probably stay in bed all morning.
Don't have alot of energy
Get irritated at stupid small things.
Need alot of encouragement and compliments to make me feel worth something.
Canot sleep if I forget my medication must be withdrawal symtoms.

I suppose I have a hunger for knowledge and thinking outside of the square I don't like taking what someone says for gosspel without fully researching it myself.
I try to come across as a happy go lucky person, but am actually always scared people don't like me. Quite sensitive about comments made about me.
Quite creative, enjoy sewing, painting and things like that.
Very honest and can't stand lies.
Im a bit of a worrier too.
I suppose I do need people to say nice things about me before i will feel good about myself.
What other things would you like to know?
