Life Is ….

I started on the new Binge Eating Disorder  Medication (Vyvanse) four days ago the difference in my mind is amazing, the only side affect  is a dry mouth which isnt too bad, they dont seem to have any trouble with my bopolar meds either. It is also helping me with obsessive thoughts, I am so happy that I spoke to my doctor about this medication

I dont feel drugged out, my mind is calm, it isnt racing like before, I havent felt so good in a very long time, Its been 7 days since my last binge and I feel extremely  hopeful

Very Excited and Hopeful

I went to see my doctor about this article I read the other day he said I could try it. I had to order it and will start using it the day after tomorrow, quite expensive $140 for 30 tabs but after 20+ years of bingeing and depression if it works or helps then it will be worth it

New Binge Eating Medication

Hope one of those links work, sorry about that

I read this today, has anyone tried this with an eating disorder? and bipolar? im  not sure if to even speak to my doctor about it since there is a warning about people with mental illness.

Anyone Else?

Ive never had insomnia in my life until I started bipolar medication. Seroquel puts me to sleep but some nights I wake at 4am and cant get back to sleep, that would be fine without the agitation and what I call wrestless legs, my legs move, I just cant lie still, the agitation is unbearable but im too tired to get out of bed
Ive also been waking up, well I would just call it waking up, its more violent, I think ive said before that I jumped up and make my little dog scream, im sure I either yell or scream as well,  it wake my dogs up .. ive hit my head, it just seems so violent, last night it happened a few times, its starting to scare me
Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Mind Full or Mindful?

Mind Full or Mindful?

I try my hardest to be mindful, I even have a mindfulness tattoo on my hand to remind me, the last few days my mind has been so full of crap that I get tension headaches. I hate headaches more than anything … so today I have been practicing mindfulness and my mind has been somewhat calm again. I am a firm believer in meditation and/or deep breathing, it can help so much if we do it regularly, even just 5 minutes a day can help
