Thought It Was Pms

In my younger twenties, I would cry for no good reason..  writing it all off the my cycle..  later, I had the 'boo hoos' all month and was dx with mild to moderate depression which later developed into panic attacks and later developed into bi polar disorder.

Looking back.. I can now see I had the mania all my life.. accounting for a lot of inappropriate youthful behaviors.. (but also my quirky sense of humor and creativity).. 

It's been wonderful since being properly diagnosed and treated (3 years ago).  I've never felt better!!  Happy and Balanced now and LOVING IT!

What a wonderful tool EP is.. who knew sharing these seemingly trivial facts about our lives may actually mean someting to someone else.. <br />
We seem to have a lot of similar life experiences.. Do write more stories and I'll do the same.. Let's see what else we can come up with xena!

The right psyc doc can make a big difference. <br />
But yes, the write med combo (Cymbalta & Lamictal) have worked really well for me.. I still take an occasional Klonopin for situational anxiety, but no longer have the 'out of the blue' panic since starting the Cymbalta three yrs ago (anti dpressant)<br />
