Welcome back Sarah! Thought of you and your family so often. Lovely to see a post but sorry things are still so rough xx
Aw, hello Cindy! I wondered whether you'd still be here. I hope you're ok? xx
And I'm starting to see this middle ground at last. My head is getting clearer although I've a way to go (and meds still to be increased further over next 6 weeks) but I'm finally getting 'me' back x
Sarah, I'm SO glad to hear that!! I'm very happy for you! I know the feeling of having meds finally kicking in and having the aha moment; it's so wonderful--and people are always so down on meds...
I wish you nothing but the best and hope you continue to improve. Keep us all posted on your progress! (I hate to jinx it by mentioning it but) if there's a relapse you know we're all here for you. Take care! *big hugs*
yay, yay, yay! and did I mention yay!
So happy for you Sarah!! Hope things continue to go well but, as mik says, we're always here. xx
I admire your desire to help others Sarahbear! That's very sweet of you. I'm sure the others will appreciate it.
we're here with you Sarah. You are not alone my friend.
Thank you Shelley x
Thank you all for the hugs and thank you Shelley! Xxx
Actually, I'm really low and have got to work in 50 mins. Still
in pjs :(
It's not easy to wait for the meds to kick in. I keep my fingers crossed!
Wow! That all sounds so fantastic! Well done Sarah!
That brilliant! I've recently started art therapy and love it! Hope your green continues
Well done you!
So glad it helped. x
That's really good, pleased to see it helped :)
That's good that you are trying new things :)
Hope the art therapy helps, I have found that doing something creative is the only thing that helps when I feel bad. Hope you find benefit from it too xx
I hope the art therapy workshop works for you! Keep us posted on how that works out. I recently read an article about coloring mandala patterns helping anxiety and bipolar mood swings. I love coloring them, it's very cerebral.
Stay safe Sarah, get up slowly when you have to and careful if you are driving <3
Go on - sometimes it helps! :)
Go for it. Let it out
That would be nice :)
I often think that...thinking of you x
That would be lovely. Will drink coffee with you in spirit!
That would be wonderful. Maybe someday. xz
I'll make a coffee, everybody make a coffee today :)
I'm having coffee now, thinking of you all!
That would be cool, sorry your feeling sad, sending some *big hugs* your way! And I'm going to put on a pot of coffee too :)
A mood panda holodeck. That's what we need. Projecting holograms into a central location seems less difficult than perfecting teleportation.
Nice idea! :)
Enjoyed our virtual coffee morning :) You lot make me smile <3
Good to hear x
That's good :D
what happened to you? Do you have cancer
oops did I offend you I'm sorry but I'm only 11 so I don't know much
Hey, that's ok! No, I had post traumatic stress disorder and have bipolar which has made be shut myself away from life but I'll get there! Hope you're ok
Me too, but we'll get there. MP has helped me see the pattern of my mood cycles. It helps me deal with it all. Big hugs!
You'll get there Sarah - you, me, Audrey, fellow Pandas, need to hang in there x
as in bipolar meds
When u sleep alot u get tired and it's even harder to get out of that funk..u have to do something adventurous n fun to snap out of it
Listen to your body, it knows what it needs. Extra rest can make dealing with a depressive episode easier. I've started allowing myself to nap pretty much whenever I need to during one. I know it will switch. It won't last forever. That's the only
certainty we get. Big hugs!
Track you Caroline x
Thank you, Anna and Glen xx
Thank you Nicola, Holly and Eva xx Am wondering if the exhaustion and ***al feeling are partly side effects of restarting my mood stabilising meds just a few days ago. Hopefully I can sleep this out xx
In surrounded by love but I'm so alone in my head. I'm so alone and I'm tired of fighting :((((((((((((
Just living is such a struggle sometimes. I feel your pain Sarah x
I know how that feels
I hope you feel better soon x
So sorry this is happening to you, Sarah. I hope it gets better for you soon. x
Let yourself rest, you need it. Hope it passes quickly. xxxooo
that sounds so lovely, Sarah - enjoy it and hope it lasts for you
Sounds like a fun night. xx
