    Default I have decided God hates me....

    is that blasphemy? Probably. I have decided that my punishment is to never have any money and to always be one step from homeless. To never be able to see the ocean, have beautiful gardens, ride a roller coaster again, to have a moment when there is no pain, mental or physical, to make me helpless against all of the things I could do to help show the injustices of society, to make me physically pay for all the things I try to do to prove I am alive, and then the real kicker is to make me mentally ill so that I obsess over it all.

    I am not sure what I am being punished for. Past life, my past addictions

    Jealousy, anger, rage, tears, disgust, envy, tears. So many others. Every day. I am on this roller coaster and I can't get off of it.

    Hopefully a double dose of Klonopin will help for now ...

    Chris, sorry to read how down you are right now. the more I learn about bi-polar the more convinced I am that my son suffers from it also. if so,he's still in a manic mood!

    well that won't cheer you up now will it?

    I'm working on the next box of little things to send you.....now you can try to imagine just what I'll come up with!

    (((((hugs))))) and know I think of you all the time. BTW I saw a compost thing that turns so no need to use a shovel.

    Exclamation May poorly calibrated medicines be your problem?

    I don't think that that is blasphemy, to consider what God thinks of one's self - to think that God may not be happy with one's self is being extraordinarily honest . . . . However, I have never heard of God giving anyone money. If you are Jewish, you might wish to contact a Rabbi. If you are Christian, you might wish to contact a Minister or a Priest or Nun. If you are Muslim, you might wish to contact an Imam. Each can help practically anyone understand and improve their relationship with God.

    Money is more of a government thing, rather than a religious thing. It might be helpful for you to pursue an independent medical assessment. Large governments often have employees whose job it is to help persons with disabling conditions improve their circumstances. I am unfamiliar with Michigan, so I am at a loss as to what might be worth suggesting on this matter.

    Misusing medicines may not be such a good idea, my understanding is that psychologically active medications must be used very carefully and are difficult for doctors to calibrate.

    There are many Klonopin interaction concerns (almost a thousand known ones):
    http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactio...,klonopin.html

    Here are several sites with Klonopin data (I don't know anything about Klonopin):
    http://www.drugs.com/klonopin.html
    http://www.webmd.com/drugs/mono-6006...=klonopin+oral
    http://www.emedicinehealth.com/drug-...article_em.htm
    http://klonopinsideeffects.net/
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clonazepam
    http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/script...ch.DrugDetails

    Klonopin apparently even has bad interactions with some food!

    My perception is that God expects us to find ways to solve some of our problems on our own but I don't know how to differentiate between those kinds and others. I am not sure if there is a clearly discoverable line.

    Good luck in your efforts to resolve your health issues.

    chris,

    i think you hate yourself more than God does. if you believe in God, you know He loves all his children. I cannot imagine believing in a hating God. i don't think it's blasphemy, i just don't think your're thinking it through.

    i was looking for something to write to you about gratitude and i found something, but i didn't have time to post this morning cause it's visit my mom day and run errands day and go counseling day

    and you know, something strange happened in counseling. i was talking about something and what i learned and my counselor said i should be thankful i learned that. and she was right! but, then i thought of you and your post and that i didn't post to you what i wanted to and i think maybe today i needed that lesson in gratitude more than you did.

    chris. think about where you were 2 years ago, (i know you can do it fast with those racing thoughts , i know all about those, too). then think about where you are today. think about where you were 10 years ago and compare it to where you were 2 years ago. is there progress? are you thankful for that?

    remember, how you think is what you get back. i've talked about this with you. someone may or may not deserve your trust. when you expect them to break your trust, they either will or they won't. it has nothing to do with your expectations, but with them. when you decide to trust them, they will either break your trust or they won't. it has nothing to do with your belief, it has to do with them. but the difference is THE WAY YOU LIVE! when you live expecting the worst, of course everything bad that happens will just validate what you already felt. when you live expecting the best, good things will happen to you AND YOU WILL RECOGNIZE THEM! yes, bad things will still happen, but you will have built a mindset where the good overrules the bad. the bad will not set you back then.

    please read kahlil gibran's, "the prophet". all of it is here, on the internet at this website: http://www.katsandogz.com/gibran.html

    here is one verse from the chapter called: punishment

    If any of you would bring to judgment the unfaithful wife,
    Let him also weigh the heart of her husband in scales, and measure his soul with measurements.
    And let him who would lash the offender look unto the spirit of the offended.
    And if any of you would punish in the name of righteousness and lay the ax unto the evil tree, let him see to its roots;
    And verily he will find the roots of the good and the bad, the fruitful and the fruitless, all entwined together in the silent heart of the earth.
    And you judges who would be just,
    What judgment pronounce you upon him who though honest in the flesh yet is a thief in spirit?
    What penalty lay you upon him who slays in the flesh yet is himself slain in the spirit?
    And how prosecute you him who in action is a deceiver and an oppressor,
    Yet who also is aggrieved and outraged?

    And how shall you punish those whose remorse is already greater than their misdeeds?


    chris, you have paid for your misdeeds, yet you still feel you owe for them. when will justice be served for the misdeeds you did? never. because YOU will punish yourself until the day you die.

    do you want to live that way?

    you are a smart and sensitive person. you know where i am coming from. i know those racing thoughts. it's that feeling that you have to solve everything right now or you are a failure.

    you write about, "all the things i could do, all the things i try to do".

    what about all the things you DO?

    we are all limited in life to the corner in which we live. we can go to a different corner and help there. then we can move to another corner and do something there. but we cannot solve all the problems of the world. that job is reserved for ALL OF US!

    if you cannot have a yard garden, have a porch garden. if you can't see the ocean yet, drive up to lake huron. you can only see the horizon there, too...what is beyond cannot be seen, same as the ocean.

    OR:

    plant the garden in your soul. train your mind to have no horizon. let your spirit soar as high as the roller coaster. do what you can to make your corner of the world a better place.

    see if lifting the pain in your soul lifts any of the pain from your body. if it doesn't...

    there are things even i can't answer...

    Joy you know I don't like it when you post then delete. You know you can say anything to me.

    Yes Waves, Jeannie always knows what to say. Thank you Jeannie, made me cry as usual.

    Trim Tab thanks for the info. I talked to my psych later and she was fine with it as I knew she would be. I know all of my medications. I have learned to research. I have been on almost all of the Bipolar meds, antidepressants and many others and finally am on something that works to a point for my depression but I need adjunctive therapy. The Klonopin is to help me sleep by shutting up my brain enough to shut my eyes. I was taking it at one time with a dose in the middle of the day to control anxiety but I didn't like the lethargic feeling it gave me, nappy time, so I dropped that dose. My psych knows everything I have done or do and she knows how proactive with my own care and she knows I know what I am doing. Jeez is that too many knows lol. I am careful.

    Has anyone been on Saphris? I know this is new and not in the normal group of meds she would try for me but I have seen some new research regarding antipsychotics and Bipolar and she told me to check it out and see if it is something we might try. I am afraid.

    Default Dear Christina

    Christina

    did you read my post in your other thread ... regarding the mixed/agitated depression??? there were a lot of specifics in there.

    from what you say here... it doesn't sound like you saw it.

    in your other thread, you expressed confusion about not recognizing your hypomanic sx; here, you know all about the meds and all about everything... sounds all the more mixed to me...

    all i can do is beg you to read my reply to you on the other thread, regarding mixed symptoms. of course maybe i am totally off base but black on white... but fwiw. and now you are talking adding an AP... well here's the thing:

    if you have a thorn in your foot, you can take all the aspirin in the world and it will help you not to feel it but
    1) not necessarily and
    2) that thing is still doing damage.
    ideally... one should try to remove the thorn .... don'tcha think?

    throwing around "heavier" drugs like antipsychotics with potentially serious side-effects doesn't make sense to me when you are taking something (Effexor) that could be worsening your state. the other post talks about this more.

    my personal experience with and knowledge of meds has taught me that sometimes, less is more: often you take out or reduce an "offending" drug for a period of time and tadaaaaa... things get better. if you then need another drug for stabilization, you might need LESS of it, and it might be MORE effective.

    sorry if i sound bossy. i feel bossy. i am very irritable right now because of my own ailment.

    no i haven't been on saphris. i am in favor of tweaking down before i tweak up, when i know that what i am taking is incongruent with my currrent state.

    Joy,

    fwiw, i read your post before the edit. i hope it is ok for you that i saw it. indeed it was emotional and i understand how it is being real emotional and feeling uncertain about a post, or feeling too vulnerable, or whatever else, and deciding to delete it, because i just didn't want that stuff out there, or maybe not right then, anyway.

    thank goodness we have that choice to delete. i have used it myself time and again. we need to feel "ok" in first person, with what we have written. after all, these things are there for all to see.

    take care sweetie. it is good to see you.
