I was just looking through some old papers I had lying around and I found one of my discharge papers from October 2008. The psychiatrist wrote "prognosis: fair" and gave me a global assessment of functioning score of "55" which means "Moderate symptoms OR any moderate difficulty in social, occupational, or school functioning." The scale goes from 0 to 100 and I only got a 55. Keep in mind, I thought I was doing great when I left the hospital. This has me depressed. Lately, I have been having problems with hearing voices and depression and not sleeping like I should be. I feel A LOT worse than I did when I left the hospital in 2008. I just don't know what to think. Any words of encouragement? Thanks in advance.

On both my Ipad and Iphone the title and most of the OP are overlaid with the banner, advertisements, the date in blue, and various other stuff that should not be there. Short posts fare a bit better.Does anyone else have this issue? Is DS going to fix it? Very frustrating to not be able to read the OP's anymore!
in the hospital the dr bumped up my lithium from 900-1350. He regularly asked me if I was experiencing any side effects but I didn’t notice the tremors till yesterday. Then today I was loom knitting and the tremors are really noticeable. My needle is not hitting its target as quick as it should.
