mental health 

Fallen into depression pit again. This week has been awful. Trying no alcohol, exercising, getting off social media. Can't make myself work. Wanna sleep. Spouse is sick of my episodes and thinks I'm a lazy mope. Have so much to do at work and not keeping up. Yesterday I slept most of the afternoon instead of working and worked a little at night to try to catch back up.

I should probably increase my meds again but the side effects SUUUCK and I'm so sick of them and I've tried almost all of them.

I've also tried a couple different therapists and stopped seeing them because neither one seemed to be much help. I know I should probably keep looking and try to find another one but it's pretty hard to research another therapist when you can't even make yourself get out of bed.

@md Therapists weren't much help. Psychoactives are not much better. In 50 years of cyclical depression the only help for me was to pretend it doesn't exist and mentally isolate myself. That has it's limits and is why I haven't been able to keep a regular job more than two years. The explosions are quite spectacular at times. Being bipolar has it's perks though.😜

@AskChip ha! I think it's also why I hop from job to job a LOT. i think i keep hoping to find something else that makes me happy. i'm finally starting to recognize that the job isn't the problem. I've had major depressive disorder since my teens you'd think I'd have figured that out by now! ;P
