My bp disorder is characterized by mania that manifests as anxiety and agitation. Some days I am so agitated I can't sit still and feel I will crawl out of my skin. I can't concentrate or focus. Other times I am just so anxious my stomach is in huge knots and I feel panicky and afraid. Then there's the depressed days. I can't read or watch t.v. or play computer games when I am agitated and anxious. I have trouble just being in this group because it means sitting still at my computer and focusing. Therefore, when people tell me all the ways I could busy myself, since I am bored stiff, they are not viable options for me right now. The pdoc just put my on epival---is anyone here on that---and it has increased my appetite which increases my anxiety because I use to be anorexic so I am very weight conscious. Can anyone relate to any of this?? Has anyone experienced this?? The epival is starting to help a little bit and I don't want to go off it but nor do I want to gain weight. Thanks for your support.
