I am going through a mixed episode right now and am contemplating changing jobs. I am a teacher and every year the stress gets to be too much in the spring semester and I want to find a different job. I missed work yesterday and my husband gave me a really hard time about it. I want to go to the hospital but he and our marriage counselor say it is a waste of time and just an excuse to rest. However, I have known people who have had to go to the hospital once a year or so to get 'leveled out'. It has always been helpful to me in the past. He doesn't want me to miss work but then he doesn't want me to go to the hospital either. I was wondering if I could get people's thoughts and experiences about going to the hospital and also about changing jobs.
Hey hey!So, I'm coming out of a 3 week low. I don't think I am in a mania. My new PDoc has adjusted my meds and I think that it is working. I'm starting to get school work done and I went to disability services to see if I could tweak my accommodations and they can. My grades are not the best right now but all is not lost (so I hope). I’ve started knitting again and I feel a lot better!...
Feeling better today to sleep is getting a little better but it's not quite there but at least I can say with the help of everyone here and the support and the nice messages I can honestly say this is a really safe place to talk with others who might experience the same thing. So I want to just say hugs to all of you!
