  1. I understand how you feel. My meds have been leaving me feeling flat and disconnected for the last year and I don’t know how long I can live my life with no sense of enjoyment for anything at all, yet without the meds I start to feel desperate and panicky so quickly, and then the hypomania really kicks in, which for me is only enjoyable for about a day before the constant anxiety and irritableness takes over, and then before I know it I’m either psychotic (which happened last time) or so depressed I can’t move. I really want to change my meds but I’m terrified of how much worse it could be. I have stopped even telling my psych that I feel flat because they tell me that is what normal feels like, and I get the real sense that they think I’m just being awkward (and the last one suggested that if I’m not getting on with my meds maybe we should stop them altogether, which I know to be a terrible idea, having tried it) and so I don’t think they even know how desperate I feel about it. However, I’ve been told by a friend with a more sympathetic psychiatrist that she went through a ton of different meds before getting the right one and now she feels pretty good most of the time, so I’m a bit more optimistic that a change could be for the good and I know that changing docs can be hard, especially if you had a good one, but it can also mean a fresh opinion, a person without any preconceived ideas about how *you* work. I hope things settle down for you a bit and hopefully the change in meds will be for the better. As said above, tinkering and fine-tuning your meds can take time but it’s all for the good. Much love xx
