Hi - It's been 5 months since my BP diagnosis. I am currently on Tegretol, Ativan, Trasodone and Cymbalta. I am a BP2. The Pdoc and I are currently working on my meds to get them correct. My problem is that I feel that I can't be around my 19 month old son very much because I am so depressed or anxious and I don't want him to see me like this. I love him so very much. I need help spending more time with him & trying to be a better mother to him. Is there anyone out there that has children and has/is experiencing this? What did you do? I need to get a grip - I know. I just feel so sad that I'm not being the greatest mother in the world. He deserves so much better.
