    seroquel and diabetes

    4
    I was at my pdocs today and told him I have elevated blood sugar and they are retesting me in August... he says that seroquel will aggravate diabetes but does not cause it... i have weight gain that I know contributes and a dietician told me I was eating correctly... I am predisposed to diabetes on my mothers side of the family... I guess my question is has anyone else been diagnosed with...
  • I'm tired of him whining and I'm sick of hearing it. We a HUGS blowup tonight saying things to each other can never take back. If I had money I'd been gone but I need that fuckers to survive. I wanted to put a knife in his neck. I know it's strange thing to say about the whining bc I'm BP, he never shuts the fk up about it. I mean on and on and on...... one never ending stupid complaint. ...
  • I've been clean from cutting for 4 years now but everyday I am urged to relapse... The triggers of everyday are fucking with my head and I can't function anymore. Even the things I used to love don't even mean the same to me. Even music is just music to me now. I think about relapsing with the pills again all the time and idk how to get out of this slump, I was doing really well for a few years...

  • TRIGGER WARNING: This post talks openly about suicide.Today I read about a suicide - it hurt to hear. Of Course it does; everyone left behind is Miserable, and often they didn't see it coming, you know? Remember when Robin Williams ended his life? I want to make a few comments about suicide: when someone you know (at all, let alone someone you Care about) takes his or her life, sociology says...

    This morning I woke up did my walk and yoga, was feeling good. All of a sudden I felt loopy. Slurring my words and tripping in the grocery store. I took the same amount of medicine as I always take. I feel loopy now. Has anyone felt like this? I know we are not doctors but any opinions would be helpful.Thank you for listening

I am 20 now, engaged to be married to my fiance in October, am helping raise her son, I am working, and contemplating going to...
  • I've been cutting lately and last night I wanted to go drive off a bridge. I don't want to go to the hospital. I don't want to feel like this anymore...

    Its just gone 9.30 here and I've been up since 7am. My sleep has definitely improved taking the extra ativan each day but I am knocking it on the head today. I dont want to become addicted to it. I still have haldol if I go back to sleeping just 3 hours but hopefully that has reset my system a little. I'm still feeling hypomanic. I've gone from manic to hypomanic is that usual? But I'm not sure...

    I am in a manic state. I had a cortisone injection in my knee on Monday and it felt great until Friday. Then it was just awful. I haven't been sleeping good because of the pain and I think the cortisone shove me into a manic state. I am in so much but I just wish I could die. I have been sitting here cutting my leg for the past 20 minutes. I just don't know if I'm ever going to feel right it...
  • I'm fairly certain I have bipolar. I need to talk it out in a supportive place.
  • I have to take it so early but then I still wake up late because I simply cannot. get. up. I hate the tiredness but love the effects. I'm also on Lamictal. Is there any way to help with this tiredness with Seroquel? I hate taking it for this reason. Plus the only alone time I get is after my child is in bed, bless her heart. I don't want to go to bed at 9pm. Grrrr.
