bipolar and my son

Adam is doing OK. the doctor put him on a new medication called Halidol. And he told him not to drive for two weeks. I hope it helps. If there is any one who knows anything about this drug let me know. I would like to know if not driving is a pernamate thing. I hope not.

Also I would like to thank Michelle Dawn. The little frog is cute and I like the fact that it says to rely on god. It was a very kind thing to do. I have had a real bad couple of weeks and needed a pick up.

One thing I am doing today is relaxing. I think it is nearly impossible for people with bipolar to do is just relax. Sometimes things get to hectic that we forget we need relaxation. for your body as well as your mind. But I think sometime different kinds of therapy work besides talk . Like relaxation therapy. My son has been ask to do the flower beds for therapy. Now we just have to get the flowers and mulch donated. He really is good at it and most of it turns out nice. So it any one knows any one who would like to donate flowers and mulch. Like two flats of flowers and 3 bags of mulch, IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

Im Back

I just spent the last two days staying with my dad. My mom and two sisters went to west Virginia to my grandmothers funeral. I am glad she got to go. I wish I could have been there. I guess from what they told me I was the only one not there. But I am Glad they got to go. I am glad to be back home . I was glad to see how well my dad is doing he is even talking about going out for dinner Friday. He hasn't done that in a year. So keep praying for my. It is still hard .

updates on bipolar

One thing that people with Bipolar do is think they are OK when the get there medication right.they think they can stop taking there medication. let me stress that that is not a good thing. It is not like a infection that goes away when you finish the medication. I want to encourage people to understand that you need to keep taking it. Bipolar is a chronic condition it need constant care. It is like if you had a heart condition and had to take heart condition. You keep taking the medication. You need to make sure that you keep taking it and that it is OK. If you are a care giver of a mentally ill person. then you need to help them make sure they take it and take it right.

And keep praying for me I am better but not good yet.

I went back to the doctor and he said i was doing better. My medication should be helping soon. I think i am going crazy. But on a good note today is my 30 the wedding anniversary. it is hard to believe it has been 30 years. But the best thing i ever did was merry cliff. He has been my rock. when all else fails I can depend on him. So here a salute to you Cliff. I love you

Well I am still having some problems but they seem to be getting better. I still don't like to go places with out cliff. But I am better. But the nerves are still not good. I take two kinds of medication, I hope its gets better. some time the panic attacks are crippling. I have filed for social security. But we will see if that get me anything . I sure hope so. i like to be at home .I feel safe there. I think some time that is the key to any kind of mental illness find a place where you feel same. find some time to do for your self.

OK this has nothing to do with bipolar disorder. But it is about mental illness. Animals are a big help with people I have this cat we call Goober. HE weighs about 22 pounds and thinks he is a baby. He is at this moment setting on top of me as I type. But he makes me feel better and I like having him around. He doesn't like me because of what I can do or what I cant do. Just because i am me.I wonder if other people feel this way? Or if it is just me.
