I just got out of the hospital on Monday and I feel the same. I don't think it helped at all...they didn't change my meds and I didn't go to any groups (I made my way to one). I came home because there was no one to watch my little girl (my mom and brother both work 2 jobs) and I didn't want her to go to foster care. I just think it's bad enough missing your mother in the hospital, why make things worse by leaving her in the care of strangers? Right now, I don't feel like myself though...I'm still EXTREMELY anxious, I can't go food shopping, I'm barely getting any housework done and I just want to cry. I want to lock myself in my room. I'm still having suicidal thoughts, but I don't dare tell anyone because then I will be forced back into the hospital and I don't want to have no plans for my daughter again. What do you think?

It's not conter-indicated for bipolar...
