I'm still anxious and I've taken my max of Klonopin today. I'm actually physically exhausted from just being high strung all day. I can't sit still and I can't focus on any one thing for too long. It's really unpleasant and bordering on manic....


  1. Have you talked with your physician about ineffectiveness of Klonpin? Getting the right dosage or the right medication is essential. There are no easy answers right now. I pray that the inner storm calms soon for you, Roland

  2. It works, I just think I need a stronger prescription. I'm allowed to take 1-2 pills once a day and that leaves me feeling anxious after they run out. I'm calm now...I took one more pill even though I'm technically not supposed to, I just really needed to calm down

  3. Hope you don't mind me stopping by. I found you through Roland's blog.

    While I am not completely familiar with Bipolar disorder, I have two sons with OCD. My oldest son copes beyond my expectations and has learned what he needs to cope, but my other son still lives at home, unable to hold a job because he can't control his environment when he's not at home. He is so incredibly talented and has gotten every job he has applied for, which makes it even harder for him when he has to quit.

    I can feel for you on many levels. My son has explained to me the constant drain with his head filled with thoughts and worries that he can't stop. He is above average intelligence and an old soul and in many ways, even more mature than his older brother. I hate feeling helpless. As a mom, I just want to fix him and I would give anything to be able to do it. In some ways, I too, am living with the OCD because I, too, cannot escape it.

    I wish you nothing but the best and encourage you to speak with your physician to help you cope better and I hope you have family support.

    When things are bad - never be alone if you can help it. Hugs.

  4. Thank you for your support. I'm taking yet another new medication and the anxiety is subsiding.
