He's always been all over the place, and I've often told him I thought he was bi-polar (and oddly enough, a psyhic I seen once flat out, out of know where, asked me if he was. I was strange lol)

Things got so much worse after I had our second son. Our first was 27 months and going through his autism diagnosis at the time.



I've been tempted to leave more than once, but I know this isn't who he is. I think he's afraid of getting a confirmed dx because he doesn't want it to "follow him", on insurance applications, work, etc.

Buspar sucked! I went a little nuts on that!

Well - he has to be willing to help himself too.



I understand he doesn't want it to "follow him" but if he doesn't do something about it, it's only going to get worse and he's going to have a lot more to worry about than having to write the diagnosis down on papers. It's not an easy thing to accept, but once you do - and get help...things get SO much better and you want to kick yourself for not getting help sooner.



I didn't want to admit that I had postpartum depression....because lets face it, it comes along with a stigma...but I finally realized that ignoring it isn't going to make it go away, and why suffer with something when you can get help?

I went a lot nuts on it. So much so that I took myself off it in 3 days and dumped that shit down the toilet. lol



I started seeing a therapist at the university last year to try and help me cope with some of the Anxiety issues. The first day I saw her, was the second day on Buspar. I didn't even know this women, and as we sat down in the room I said "Hey, I need to warn you, I'm on some new meds and it's making me a little nasty, so if I say anything mean to you, I'm sorry." LOL She's very cool and handled it well, and luckily I wasn't mean to her. But when she heard me say that she must have been like "Ohhh crap. this is gonna be a fun one." lol
