Bipolar Medication to expensive
Hi,
I have not had my medication for 2 weeks and i am very depressed. I had extra expenses this month so the meds had to go. I have been having a lot of thoughts about if i was in a car accident if i would like to die. I know it is not normal. My Husband' s ex is sticking her nose where it does not belong and I have been having chest pains because of this. I am actually at the stage where I don' t care what happens. If something happens it might be a blessing. My Husband does not seems to understand why I am so moody. I have explained all of this to him but he still gets annoyed. If I cry he gets so angry. I am sick of keeping all of these feelings inside. I end up crying at work. Why is it so hard to be happy?

Its worth discussing this with your shrink / doc, as some drugs which are effective mood stablizers in Biolar Disorder, and some antidepressants, are available as generics and much cheaper than others. Your comments strongly suggest that you need and deserveto restart the meds, especially the antidepressnt at this stage. Keep up the struggle to get well --- it will be worth it
