I'm off to the psychiatrist today and I'm going to need to start taking a new mood stabiliser. My mood swings have been getting increasingly extreme and I've been finding it difficult to contain my thoughts and behaviour. I have been pushing myself to achieve things with my cooking, traveling and socialising and am finding it hard to assimilate all the information. My sleeping pattern has been swinging dramatically with my mood swings. The psychiatrist has wanted me on the new medication for months. I tried it for a month but then decided I would be OK without it. The mood stabiliser I started taking a few years ago completely changed my extroverted, outgoing, chatty, creative personality into and introverted, shy, quiet, uncreative person. Mind altering drugs can be scary. Part of me is scared about this new drug.
I'm glad you are keeping me company in the coming months.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia
