When she's never classed her as a best friend n only ever said that about me.. She's split up with her bf of 6 mths n she keeps posting depression quotes and telling the world she's in pain n suffering.. Constantly
She wasn't there when I was depressed n only messaged to brag about how happy she was n how loved up she was.. I want to be there for her but feel she's using the 'depression' card for sympathy n that hurts as I've suffered in silence n not once
Mentioned it on social media or told people how I really felt ..(apart from her) I suffered in silence like most of us do... She only says she's depressed when she falls out with her bf.. Then suddenly she's cured when they get back together :/
My moods ok but just needed to let this rant out to get it off my mind... It's so trivial and minor but sometimes we overthink the small things n it creates a much bigger problem in our minds.. So that's y I had to let it out on here.. Sorry guys lol
On top of that, letting everyone know your business is not a good thing in the long run. It can come back to haunt us later.
I can understand why you feel that way, Mandy - I think many people don't understand that sadness, low etc are a very different thing from depression. That is not to dismiss those feelings, as they're very real and deep and need to be acknowledged
and dealt with. But any of us who have been diagnosed with depression, but have also had those 'ordinary', transit
*transitory feelings, understand the difference - and wouldn't wish it on anyone. One of the things I have to constantly remind myself is that right now I just feel low - as would anyone who is unemployed, struggles to pay even basic bills etc It's
something my GP and I touch on regularly, partly to remind me how far I've come, in that on most days I can keep myself going and feel some hope. Hope you can still support your friend, as it is serious for her, tho it may not be depression. Maybe
she'll understand more eventually thru her friendship with you. Big hugs xx
I'm also having a sleepy Thursday, so there must have been something in our bamboo yesterday...))
Give in to the coffee...it's always there for you! <3 coffee!
I'm wide awake & chipper though it could be that I had liquor this morning. I'm a bad girl. =p
Ahaha Alena :) I've slept well for three nights so I must have chomped on most of the bamboo that was stuffed with the mysterious sleep aid ingredient :) looks like I ate your share to then manda p :P
I should take some Clonazapam now that I drank, but one of our cats is on my lap. I hate disturbing them. =(
What's clonazapam manda p?? And aww your cats lucky to have you :) Just imagining you sat there like a statue so you didn't disturb your cat.. What's his/her name? X
And then I'd find the things in a different place and then it triggered me to realise n remember i was mixing two different times n situations together that led me to be confused and so adamant I was right.. When I was wrong :/
This is probably not making any sense to anyone .. I feel so confused and disorientated .. Never felt this before - feel I want to blame my medication
Wow that must be really confusing
Yes I'm confused and most likely not making any sense with writing down my confusing thoughts but I'm writing it incase I need to tell my psychiatrist how my thoughts have been since the last appointment
Well Extra big hugs for you
have you tried to do a research on it? maybe there are other people who have experienced the same as you
That does sound very confusing. I keep a notepad that I write down all of the things that happened or questions I have between appointments & take it with me. It's been a big help.
Thanks guys and after reading your suggestion I looked it up Han M and it says certain medication to treat bipolar can cause memory confusion or loss and also could be if you are in between a mood swing or if you are manic
And I should try that Twinny pops will do me good to do so xx
Mandy, I second your research on memory loss and confusion - I'm cyclothymic (so milder version of bp) but I've read the same stories in some drugs reviews and people's experiences. If you'll have an option to mention it to your p-doc, do that.
Ahh thank you for sharing that Alena :) feel much more at ease now knowing you have also read read the same - I will Defo mention it xx
Ohh, healthy and delicious! Yum!
Productive Mandy thats great x x
Keeping focused!! Just a night time mood dip that hopefully will have shifted when I wake later! Don't want to let it spoil my good days I've been having!
What happened to your little girl
The children's services told me I needed rest and a little time to get back on track when I was severely depressed last year but then said its in her best interest she doesn't live with me anymore as my bipolar may cause her emotional harm
Which is bullsh*** ... I just had a major episode last year that the doctors didn't do anything to help me so I got ***al n attempted ***e... I just need time to get stable that's all :(
They say they can't take a chance that I won't end up in the same situation again months or years down the line.. I'm sure what they are doing isn't right - fair enough I need time but not having my parental rights passed to her grandma until she's18
I know that not right. That little girl of yours been away for how long.that is sad my mom did the same with my older sister.she was trying put my nieces and my nephew into a other home.my nieces is 10,8,6,and my nephew is 5 years old.and I am 15 15.
I would never see them again
That's an awful situation.
You will have her with you again, Mandy! I know you're working hard on it... *Big Hugs*
Thanks so much Jeff and thank you pandas xx
It's so wrong for being punished for having a mental disorder. If everyone who did got their children taken away from them the world would be a very different place. Sorry you are experiencing this. =(
I have experience this too.but I blame the world
Sounds good Mandy. Best wishes, Noel
Thank you Noel hope you are well and thanks for the hugs guys X
