Vlog: Medication TRIALS

I actually saw the doctor on Monday and this is from that evening :).  I am not sure yet if the medication is working or not.  My mind is quieter, BUT I have just been at home and keeping away from a lot of stimulation.  Anyway.  Enjoy! This whole vlogging thing is kind of fun, now that I am getting it figured out!.

Happy Thursday, People!

  1. Hey, Kelsi :)
    Sorry about the mania stuff. I’ve been taking a mood stabilizer called “Lamictal” for years now it and works wonderfully to keep mania at bay! No weight gain for me and I am genetically prone to carry weight and gain! So, I approve of Lamictal for everyone who’s like us and wants to avoid weight gaining drugs. Maybe you’ve already tried it or something? I just wanted to let you know! <3

  2. I know exactly how you feel, I’m on Seroquel, have you ever been tested for something called NMDA Antibodies? It is fairly recent discovery in mental health, that those who have Bipolar Disorder or Schizophrenia may actually have an autoimmune encephalitis… called Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis (Google – Brain on Fire, Susannah Catalan)

    People with these antibodies can have symptoms of psychiatric illness for years before it worsens.

    I originally was diagnosed towards Bipolar but gained a second opinion who they thought it sounded like temporal lobe epilepsy seizures, I was referred to a Neurologist who found these antibodies.

    Just want to make you aware as you seem very similar to me! If you experience psychosis or Mania please request this test.. most psychiatrists won’t have heard of it but if you provide them with information they should be able to request the blood test!!

    I look forward to reading the rest of your blogs :)
