An update- on the upswing

Thanks to those who read and/or commented on my recent post. I'm in a much better place emotionally and physically, focusing rather than on going somewhere else, to much more effectively and aggressively use the local resources I have. This includes finding a private practice psychiatrist whom I don't have to wait 8 weeks to see and doesn't have a limit of number of visits per year, and moving all medication management in that direction. I'm now much more willing to try some mood stabilizers outside of the SSRI spectrum that I don't feel have worked much or at all, and to find someone willing to work with me in terms of the Sinclair method. Support me in it, not just tolerate it or look down on it. Taking action steps like that feel incredibly empowering. And if there are other mood and hormonal issues due to my age, I'll just find out what I can and assume that it's a factor as well in all of this. I know my patterns very well, and while I can't remove all of the stressors and expected emotional ups and downs that come with being my age (and my parents being their ages), I can use all of the resources I have and commit to finding a way not to let the emotional and psychological fluctuations become so polarized and, at times, dangerous.

Adulting is certainly hard sometimes, but I'm incredibly fortunate in having such a tremendously supportive and understanding life partner, friends, family and even colleagues.

Oh, adulting is miserable sometimes. Hugs and best of luck to you in this. I think you're making some very wise choices, from the sound of it. About your other post - I'm still going into that time of my life, so I'm not even where you are yet, I don't think, and thus I'm afraid I'm not much help except to pray and send good wishes your way. :) Keep us posted, please. :)

*hugs snugs* I got some most heartening mail from you, BTW. It totally made me feel all warm and hugged. How is it you always know how to touch my heart in the center?

Hugs and love,
Febobe :)
