Hi. I need a friend! My bipolar 1 has been getting worse since being diagnosed on 8/18/2020 with uncontrolled diabetes type 2. I've talked to my Ph.D. about this and all he did was lower my dose of Geodon upon my request because Geodon raises blood sugar. I'm all over the place and need friend support to help me get through this. Basically, I need a friend to help talk me down from being so manic and panicking about being bipolar 1 and now diabetic. My diabetic bloodwork showed a blood sugar of 512 (with 80-120 being normal) and a 3-month blood test called an A1c of 15.5 (with <6 being normal). My PCP put me on insulin and a med called metformin to get my blood sugars down to the normal ranges with the hope of being able to get off the insulin. Does anyone have any advice for me to come down as I feel like I'm hanging from the ceiling by my fingernails and toenails? Will anyone be my friend to help walk with me through this crazy up-and-down time? I'm manic, depressed, scared, and desperately need help! Please?
Less and less palpitations today. Bit of indigestion too. Dislike, how I feel it in my throat sometimes...While, they are still there, I went for my walk (even though I had to end it early, because of too many people being around me, with no mask), took a shower, washed dishes, and cooked dinner for me and my girlfriend. I have been making the mistake of googling symptoms, instead of just...
I sleep horribly. An hour here or there through out the night. I'm taking .25mg Halcion and 250mg of Depakote at night and 1mg of Rexulti in the morning. I'm up almost every hour every night. What have you found effective? I've tried Ambien and Restoril and they dont help at all.Thanks
