The plan for Moon

Posted by Solstice on March 2, 2012, at 12:55:25

Okay! We saw PDoc this morning, and then saw Moon's therapist.

I am feeling soooo much better.

PDoc and I were on the same page.. Moon seemed much better today (to PDoc). She thinks the med combination she's on need to have a chance to settle and see how it goes, and agrees that the anxiety and overwhelm is over the top and may be causing a lot of her symptoms. Especially since they are acute at school, and aren't really showing up as much at home. (The EPS symptoms appeared to be a result of the lithium.. and now that the lithium is pretty much out of her system, the EPS things are gone).

Moon has the most amazing school counselor. Really 'gets' bipolar - wholly understands how it works. Next week Moon will go to school, but will be in the counseling office doing work on their computer--system classes, or doing class work in their conference room.. otherwise not having to go to the classes she's behind in. She can go to her elective classes. Anyway, this will hopefully relieve the academic pressure. Spring break is the following week, so hopefully by the time school resumes after that, we'll have a much better feel for how effective her meds are for the bipolar.

Moon seems relieved too.

And I have to say that you guys are all so wonderful. This has been so difficult, and being able to tap into the wealth of experience you all have has lessened my own angst and has enabled me to stay focused and feel like there were options and possibilities. I'm just so grateful for all of you.

Solstice... (and Moon)
