I have been in a bad place with my bipolar. I am weaning off

[3705]

I have been in a bad place with my bipolar. I am weaning off a med and it triggered mania so of course I drank to bring me down. I tried my benzoyl but they did nothing to help so I ententionally and with purpose drank until I fell asleep. So now today I am exhausted and hungover after 2 days of frenzy activity and racing mind. I am lucky that my mania only comes on 2/3 times a year but the only way that works for me to stop it is to drink.

I believe this is why I started drinking heavily in the first place

@jdonna25 Also to add...yeah! coming off of that stuff can definitely trigger mania.

@jdonna25 yesterday I took seroquel and 1 Xanax and went to bed at 6:30. My body was so exhausted I didn't have the energy to wash them. Good news is I didn't drink again. Today I feel better and have decided to stay on my seroquel.
