I’m also having issues finding the right meds after the last ones stopped working 8 months ago. Praying for both of us

Yeah, that's the worst part especially for anxiety. You can get a tolerance with benzodiazepines. So sometimes I just drink. Nothing seems to work, Im constantly arguing with my husband because I get easily irritated and angered and bored. Im praying for that miracle of relief for us both too and being apart of the community. Im not a part of anything, I have absolutely nothing. A degree, an expensive education I can't use because im too unstable, and still have to pay for it. No car, no job, and my husband quit his. We're in a hole financially and no more insurance or doctor's from his last job. We lost our house to his gambling and drug problem. He's been in a lot of car wrecks, probably because of drugs. Im very lost my friend. Praying I feel is all I have left.

well I’ve been off mess for about 2 years now. I was prescribed risperidone, zoplodone, fluoxetine and diazepam. I’ve coped really well, come out of a 9 year relationship. Felt really good about everything an then in September I had a manic episode which led to psychosis in work an went down hill from there. Lost all 4 of my jobs. Anyway gathered myself again an started feeling stable again. Now I’m in a new relationship, it’s been a fair few months....started out really good but now instead of me having hypomania I’m having real bad episodes of paranoia and depression an I’m really struggling with it. I haven’t slept for 36 hours an the majority of the evening I was just sat on my couch shaking
