I was unaware that there was any effective drug protocol for PTSD.

I think it's currently "try shit and see if it works" using anxiety meds and therapy.l. I don't.  I actually never paid attention to PTSD treatment because it's almost always focused in treating the singular major traumatic event kind. But I don't know. It's been two whole sessions that weren't even solely on that. It feels like treating my BPII its slightly more important. I don't have all the sexy symptoms of PTSD, just the other ones that aren't super obvious.

Also, it's  very likely that a) I have PTSD, 2) it had it before I joined the army, and c) the army made it worse. And this might explain why half of my BP isn't  fully responding to my meds and why I had an extremely atypical reaction to another.

This is possible, but speaking from experience, I wouldn't rule out a physiological problem.

That is likely. Seroquel should not have made me react in almost the opposite of its function. But I think the PTSD is likely why Lamictal isn't doing much for my manic irritability while helping with the depression.

Lamictal is actually known for mainly treating the depressive phase of BP, not so much the manic phase. Specifically, it should decrease the amplitude of the low, and delay the high, but it usually won't prevent it or dampen it.

The Seroquel activity depends on genetic predisposition to favoring certain neurotransmitter activity over another, and also depends on dosage. You may wanna discuss dosage of that one with your doctor, as you may need more or less. If they're not aware of that distinction, or think it irrelevant, you may wanna shop around for another doctor if possible.

I appreciate the concern and I know that it's where your info dump and advice come from, which is why I'm not going in a tear about the implied insult that I am so dumb i would not have done research into my health or the medications I am on and my treatment. I am well aware what lamotrigine primarily treats in bp. I am week aware of what quetiapine is and does. BPII and PTSD are treated in different ways with different kinds of drugs and therapy. My treatmenttement needs to be adjusted in light of the new revelation. And before you point out that one of the unapproved uses for lamotrigine is top treat PTSD, it its clearly not currently working fully.

I will however point out that were I dissatisfied with my psychologist or the staff psychiatrist I would be venting about that and not talking about my experiences in the joy that is trying out psychiatric drugs.

Had my post gestational diabetes test and I do not have the permanent diabetes.

I can have all the potatoes now.

:rogpipe:

I have the jealousy.
Meanwhile I'm  playing "dodge the refined carbohydrates" on account of living with the in laws. I don't understand  the attitude  of my mil towards carbs. She also doesn't think prediabetes is a thing and that it's  bullshit the diagnostics for diabetes keep trending to lower levels of acceptable.

Like, I'm  trying not to get the beatus? Her conception of what is a good A1c or sugar level is so warped.

How is she telling you what to eat?

We fucking moved in with them. My rant glad will be getting a small purging next week. She does  the cooking and I really don't want to have to cook for them. I fucking hate this.

Down to 211 from 235-240. Turns out raising a kid and cutting out all that sugar/carbs is a weight loss plan.

So is writing down everything you eat, so you can shame yourself out of a trip to the fridge.

Diabetics:  Bad people AND OCD.

I'm hoping to avoid that, the writing things down thing, I already shame myself out trips to the fridge or buying certain things at the store.

It's more important than metformin.  169% dead serious.  It is the difference between a 5.5 A1C and getting toes amputated.

God. My fucking mil everytime I mention how my sugar's been or what my A1C is: "Why are you worried? Those great numbers." For a fucking diabetic maybe. My A1C is 5.7 which is still prediabetic but it's so far the "well check every 6mon to a year" not "well every 3 months we want your blood you degenerate sugar fiend."

You have to remember that LMNO is one of those food snobs who occasionally eats edible stuff and sneers at the rest of us because he's better than people.

So...does that mean we can eat him and he won't need any spices to liven up of the flavor?
