Bipolar Hypomanic Update Second Day of Spring - 03/21/2013

High Gear With Gray Skies In true form, I have been out of touch with the blog for a long time. Anyone see a pattern? This photo is the weather outside right now, the second day of spring. Still looks like a winter wonderland. Although outside it's all wintery grey skies, and has been for some time, I have been maintaining a hypomanic state since I pulled out of the depressive episod e I last described. It may not seem like a good thing to maintain hypomania, but I am always mainly aiming to keep depression away, and this state is much better. I have used my behavioral (get enough sleep, manage stress) and other tools (medication) to try and prevent severe mood swings. Seroquel keeps me from going full-on manic, and, with taking prozac not such a great idea when hypomanic, I am using low-dose marajuana (mainly female leaves) to manage depression. Seroquel on one end and marajuana on the other is pretty effective for keeping me functioning.  I do want to slow down some. Working too much. Stressed by schedule. Maybe I will ask doc about upping the Seroquel dose for a bit to reign me in.  In writing about what I am using to manage my bipolar, I am not advising anyone what to use to manage theirs. Only you and your psychiatrist an determine what is besst for managing your disorder.
