So I've been away from support groups in general for about 3 or 4 years including this one, but I used to be a regular here on D'S, when I was on and off of meds and really struggling.
I'm doing better as I've finally accepted treatment for bipolar 1 disorder. I've been taking haldol for about 2 years now and haven't been hospitalized or had any major symptoms save for this nagging monthly depression...i become a mom about the same time I started taking haldol and no problems with depression during or immediately after giving birth but now I think it is time to start with an antidepressant sinvce I am not being the best mother when I am sympotomatic...i manage the basics but I think my kid deserves more and so so I.
My question is what should I look out for when adding an antidepressant and any stories you have about how antidepressants have helped you personally.
Thanks in advance
Today, it's been a year since Rubes' death. I'm not doing so well. I miss her all the time and I've fallen into bad habits that I know she'd nag me for. I have to do better, sometimes it's just really hard. I miss her humour and encouragement. Saying a prayer that she's at peace.
