I dont think im bipoler, i think i have ADHD bad

Posted by rjlockhart on June 3, 2007, at 14:31:03

Those stupid people at the State hospital where so cold, ugh.

But being around other people with real bad disorders makes me see emapthy for them and a new percepective.

I have wore myself out trying to post here, so im going to stay on prozac because it brings life in to me.

You know i talked with a marine and said some people cant take meds like heavy doses of prozac to stop from being suicidal.

I think i may start wellbutrin with prozac.

Anyone?

Plus i heard strattera makes you depressed.

Matt write down your symptoms and the drugs you want to try and let your pdoc make the decision. Good luck. Love Phillipa

Matt, do you see any patterns to your behavior? I think that exploring such things might be more helpful to you than any medication out there.

As for staying on Prozac, how about describing the sorts of problems you're having to your pdoc and letting him come up with some suggestions?

Also, how about talking to him about whether or not you're bipolar?

And Matt? Sometimes I think it would be really good for you to take English Composition again. Or maybe a Critical Thinking class. You might consider that, too, as part of a behavioral approach.

Good luck.

Racer are you calling me stupid? in sophisticated way?

Yes i know sometimes i dont maybe make sense, but i am sane.

I know i need to make points when i talk, but i have problems and i talk about them randomly.

Basically what you just said that i dont make sense? or im not getting to you?

never mind if you dont want to talk to me thats fine.

Racer i take you advice, but you need to see things through another angle, throught other people's like mine, and stop being so prideful.

 

I apologize rjlockhart

Hi, Matt,

I am sorry for losing my patience yesterday.

As for what I meant, no, I would never be calling you "stupid," because you're not. You're both intelligent and sane -- BUT, and this is what I was suggesting rather unkindly, I think that paying a little more attention to your writing skills would probably help you in ways that have nothing to do with writing. I also think that there are some behavioral interventions you could explore that would help you, as well.

Here's the thing: sometimes slowing down to make sure that you've finished a thought helps calm one down, and I think that allowing yourself to write as you do might contribute to some of your distress. That may sound simplistic, and maybe it is. I believe it to be true, and I know that it has helped me in the past. In fact, I've used some of the forms that I learned way back in Critical Thinking to help calm me when my anxiety has started to ratchet up. It might be worth it to you to experiment with that.

And Matt? Not only am I sorry that I lost my patience, I'm also sorry that I couldn't get back here to apologize earlier.

its ok.

I know i need to work on getting to a point when i talk, this is even with my friends, i dont get to a point.

But i do talk about my problems randomly, i just dont want to think about them in sequence because it just makes me think more about the "whole" problem of problems.

I did take your advice, and phillipa's im going to get reexamined because i do think i have low grade bipoler disorder with ADHD (moderate-to severe)

The ADHD is the problem im having with, and i belive strattera may help if i take it with prozac.

Im know i always will saw dexedrine, adderall, any stimulant does, benefit me but to really think about it, when it wears off your moody, im plus abuse, like redosing, and then having insomina. Which i had a terrible problem in the past with adderall and not getting to sleep. Even though it extremly helped me feel confident and focused on what i was doing.

So anyways, its ok, i dont care, i get impatient alot. I have matured in someways.............like not blowing up on a post.

Ok..........so everyhting is fine.

Thanks

Matt

 

Thank you. rjlockhart

Thanks for accepting my apology.

I've got to say that your last post was by far the most coherent I've read from you in a long time. You sounded far calmer, which I hope is a sign that it did help.

I think you were saying that you start to feel pretty overwhelmed when you try to think about your problems less randomly? That's actually where I use those Critical Thinking charts and formats. If I think about ALL of my problems, or even the really big ones, it's easy to feel as though I'm about to be hit by a tidal wave. So, I break them apart into more manageable chunks, and I concentrate on ONLY one at a time. That's something that I am very glad I learned, because it's probably one of the most useful skills I have. I think it could be very useful for you, too.

Right now, you've got a chance to learn some of these things, because you do live at home. (See? There are a few benefits to it ;-) even if it doesn't always feel that way.) Once you're out on your own, you won't have the luxury of thinking about your problems randomly. You'll have to think about them more carefully, in order to solve them, because they won't just go away and they probably won't just wait until you decide to do it.

Now it's time for me to go, and do some non-computer related things. Good luck, Matt.
