Bipolar disorder is confusing. So. Very. Confusing.
It can be hard to distinguish between a “normal” mood and “bipolar” symptoms.
When is sadness actually depression?
When is happiness actually hypomania or mania?
For the past few months, I may have been experiencing mild depression.
Now, I am trying out Latuda and seeing how it works out.
At first, I did not really feel that it was working.
However, right now, I feel happy, maybe even hypomanic.
Is this dangerous?
Does this mean that the medication is ineffective?
Will I become manic?
Will I crash into a depression?
How can I tell if I have recovered from depression vs.am becoming manic?
Should I try a new medication?
How will stopping this medication impact me?
If I AM hypomanic, how bad is that, really?
