Someone close to me said they saw a bipolar near neighbour at the corner shop recently & 'she didn't look like you, she looked 'medicated''. Hmmm, sounds terrible doesn't it? Thinking back on hospital stays, though, I think there is a certain look when people seem a little overmedicated? Really dulled out & puffy...is that not PC? Am I horrible to be relieved that my days of looking/feeling that way (had years of it) are over? What do you reckon? Maybe it's an internalised stigma, a personal fear,maybe it's quite understandable?

Hello, I am new to DS and am trying to start chipping away at the issues I'd like feedback on from others.I would like to hear what medications you are on that you feel are helping you.I'm on Lamotrigine for my bipolar, Seroquel & Lorazepam for my severe insomnia. I am going to my Psychiatrist next week and want to be put on something else. I've been on these meds for a decade!I keep telling him...
