so my journey started with treatment of a.d.d. Then, depression. no med helped, imipramine and wellbutrin made me feel the worste. now i take parnate. i feel OK, but after being on the depression website and asking others about spending sprees it was brought to my attention that i may actually have bipolar. i spent 400 this week on my credit card, i've had better energy since being on the parnate, which is good cos before i would have bouts of lethargy. now i can clean the house and keep up with makeup and meals. and redecorate, repaint, and revamp my wardrobe. i've also considered taking up a second job or taking real estate classes, but haven't actually looked into it. i don't sleep well, but that could be the medicine. i like the medicine. i would be sad if my doc changed it bc it is helping with depression and i seem to be getting more consistent with keeping up with things in my life. however, the spending is crazy. im scared i will crash and get depressed again after i have to face the bills. i see my doc tomorrow. i don't know how to approach him with this. do i just come out and say, uh-i think i have bipolar or maybe just a serious shopping addiction? in the past i would have these phases where after a very stressful event i'd give up on reality and go on crazy spending sprees, drink and party and smoke pot. i'd look for thrills. i'd think, 'this is me-i'm cool, not that boring stepford wife bullsh*t' then later i'd go back to being depressed. then sometimes, where i am at right now, i'd just feel almost right, but the spending was always trouble.

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
