Very Excited and Hopeful

Standard

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

I Am Doing Fine …

I feel ive finally made it to the point where im living, not just existing and that feels great .. I know with one horrible thought it can all go bad again, but im trying hard for that not to happen

I have been getting alittle agitated latley, especially in the morning, will need to talk to my doctor about that

Ive learnt to keep my mind somewhat busy so it cant think too much

I try to read lots of blogs but sometimes its hard to get time, hope everyone is doing well

It Feels Great To Accomplish ….

It Feels Great To Accomplish ….

Something that you set out to do, I rarely have this feeling as I start so many things and never finish them or take years to do so. While my eating problems have been both good and bad, iveĀ  finished a few things that I started long ago. When I was young we instead of having photos we had slides, ive been meaning to scan them onto my PC for three years, it took me two hours to get it done (what was stopping me from doing it years ago?)

Ive been saying I was going to get my learners permit for many years, but I blamed not being able to study for not doing it. I started studying five days ago, I went for the test today and aced it. These things that I failed at beforehand kept going through my mind and I kept telling myself that I never follow through with anything so why bother trying

Now im looking forward to learning to drive and now that im able to walk again I want to get my health in order, my binges are few and far between but exercise helps in keeping me sane,I never realised how much it helped until I wasnt allowed to walk for two months

I have a hangover from my last binge, but im looking forward to the challenge and see if my brain is going to work with me this time with my health .. ive decided to try harder this time

Happy New Year, looking forward to see what I can accomplish in 2015
