I told the casworker I stopped taking my medicine because she had asked me when I took it last. Husband told ner he doesn't think I need my medicine that I have been fine without it. I guess I have been med free for about a couple months....I thought it was one month but I think it might be a little longer than that. I am also begining to doubt my diagnosis since the only real time I got manic was when on lexapro an SSRI for depression. I was suicidal and the pdoc at the time uped my dose and I became paranoid of everyone and everything including the docs diagnosing me. I had a manic episode blacked out and ended up claiming a chicken leg was the key to the universe. I don't really recall going manic on my own. What do you all think. Do you think a medicine induced mania can automatically label someone as bipolar???

im curious, how long have you been stable? What do you count as stability, and to what do you owe your success?
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
