I’ve lost the drive

I had a 100% in my one class until a couple weeks ago. I totally lost the drive and discipline to stay with it. I now have a 55% and am scrambling to cover my ass. I also have to work on my final this week, which is due on Sunday. I am freaking the fuck out. I need someone to help me but who? I feel overwhelmed with school, starting a new job where I receive next to no training, and finding money to cover my bills. I have horrible stomach pains and my digestive system is freaking out due to my anxiety. I’m so sick of this shit.

  1. Gotta’ exercise, walk, cycle, run, etc. It really helped me a lot and I took my meds. I am 65 and still bipolar; take meds etc. Mostly symptom free since about 1990, but I started taking lithium in the mid-70’s. I was a teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing for some 30 yrs. Am retired now; take lithium; not had anxiety, depression, mania, psychosis for a long time; like reading your blog. I was very lucky to respond very well to lithium; it turned me around 360 degrees to “normal” & all the exercise. Saw you on FB. Hugs, Elizabeth

  2. Thanks for reading Elizabeth. I would love to exercise but I’m recovering from an ankle injury so I’m still limited in what I can do. I would also love to be on meds, have been in the past, but I have no insurance or money.

  3. There is help. Check out the websites for the drug companies for the meds you’ve been taking; see what they offer. Then check with the women’s center, perhaps, to see if they can recommend a good psychiatrist for prescribing info. Maybe someone with a sliding scale?
