Thought it was about time that I wrote a review of my bipolar and medications over the last month. April has been quite a traumatic month for me in terms of having to go to court and not seeing my kids as much, which was a result of dealing with the whole court situation.

To begin with I started reading again, slowly, but it’s a start in the right direction and I do love to read. The reading helps with my moods, it helps me not get too depressed. My choice of book was Armageddon’s Children by Terry Brooks, a fantasy novel part of a larger series.

At the end of last month and during this month I was changed to Olanzapine from Quetiapine, and at first it would completely knock me out. I would feel really sedated and sleepy so ended up taking just before bed. Now that I am used to them the sedating effect isn’t as obvious.

Bipolar mood wise I believe, as does my psychiatrist that I am still in a state of mania, she says my speech is still much too fast and non coherent. The problem is that I feel I cycle really quickly some days between that manic high to a real doom and gloom low. This is only some days, most days I am fine and functioning, just a tad lazy. I believe this laziness is due to the weight gain from Olanzapine, and the muscle pain is from the Atorvastatin.

I still have a long way to go in my opinion before I can get my moods stabilised.


Does anybody else have there life documented on their blogs that I could read and get some inspiration from.

If there are any mistake I apologise as I am currently slightly manic, that’s why I write so many posts.
