Dreams Leading to Depression?

I have leathery been going through a lot. Moving back home with my mom because living on my own unfortunately didn’t work out. My mom, grandparents, and me trying to find a house to move into all together so I can care for my grandma. The deadline approaching fast that me and mom have to get out of the apartment where we currently live.

A lot.

I got sick with the stomach bug and couldn’t take my medications for about 3 days due to me not being able to keep them down. I take Prazosin, which is a nightmare medication. I’ve been back on my normal routine.

But within the past few weeks that I’ve gotten sick, I have been having vivid crazy dreams. I don’t wake up from them, and if I do, I HAVE NO ENERGY TO EVEN GET UP TO PEE. Now a days I’ve been having days where I can not get outta bed as fast as I normally could. I am sensing my depression creeping up, and it’s not fun.

My mom tell me, “I sleep but don’t rest” because my mind is constantly going with the dreams I’m having. So I wake up so so tired and I can’t even function. I’m sitting here typing this in my counselors office dozing off. I’m so EXHAUSTED.

And in all honesty, idk why.

If anyone else with the same problem as me could reach out, or if anyone has any advice for me to get to sleep and actually not be tired.... that would be great!!!

How to Help Me Help Him

So I got out of the mental hospital yesterday, and I met some great people in there as I always do... however, this time I had met a great great guy with #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder and have now done a little bit of research on it. And I have noticed that he has Purely O OCD that I am aware of, because he’s functioning with no compulsions. My guy friend is 19 and he basically says it happened over night. Which I read it’s a slow mover at first. So I want to b able to help him in every way possible. But the thing is, I don’t have OCD... so have never really done much research on the topic... so if y’all could send maybe some links to stories or if y’all could comment some helpful tips on how to try to help him manage a little better? I’m sure my coping skills aren’t probably the best to him.... i don’t really even know what I’m looking for really from y’all... but just help me, help him... while in the hospital he was asleep most of the time and when he was awake we liked to play checkers and chess because it kept his mind busy...

Thank y’all in advance. ❤️

So I have been on a rollercoaster of emotions and highs and lows in the past few weeks. And between all of it, somehow I lost my job.

I have known for a while that I have bipolar. I had always assumed it was more depression than anything. However a recent visit to the doctor I have noticed I am extremely manic lately even with bits of psychosis.

To hear the doctor say “you’re experiencing mania with psychosis” was a punch in the face.... because never did I think of the possibility of me being this way.

My doctor then took me off of 2 medications, one I have been on 2+ years and the other 4+ years. And then went and reduced one of my other medications. She added 2 new medicines one being an antipsychotic.

I am scared and nervous for the next few weeks and months as I transition into these new medicines with high high hopes I start to see some results.
