hi so i wanted to share about husband's medications that he began to take over a week ago now. it's zoloft 50mg. it's activating him. he had a mini meltdown last night. nothing major yet he was loud, and it was over something silly. not even the regular loud him. i calmly walked out of the room checked on the girls who just said what's wrong?? i explained it to them. they seemed fine yet still not cool to of happened. he didn't curse or anything, i stayed in the kitchen cleaning up to defuse him till he calmed than went back in the room. we'll talk today about it when he gets in. we spoke days ago he said it's not calming me at all infact i feel more irritable jumpy its harder to sleep stay calm etc. for a while i'd quietly thought he was bipolar. he is very much like difficult child in so many ways. stories from his younger years scream it, and well overall now with this new information i said to him it's very possible. hes' taken self test things on interent etc. in past. so i said stop medication immediately, he got it from his sister who is a dr. and i said call the pyschiatrist and sched an appointment. i told him though it's a must. absolute must. our home is calm now i cant have you here on your day off having a meltdown over a movie i think it was or something so trivial. just silliness and directly releated to the ssri. i'm no dr. yet i've seen exact same with difficult child. i had a feeling, yet i kept it quiet for the most part for years. the non sleep on certain days the inability to get up on others, the way he talks so fast at times is always in "go" mode or in sleep mode. he has no medium speed to him. he flies from zero to 60 in a heartbeat. it's hard to keep up with him. he is not going to be at all pleased about a bipolar diagnosis at this stage of the game. hes so distorted like last night blamed it on me the yelling. i said ok easy child really in my head?? when he was a child he'd rock himself to sleep back and forth most nights, than when he got really excited over something he'd throw up when he was a kid! things were sooo beautiful too here. yea yea i miss easy child but let's face it its' a whole lot calmer. gotta keep it that way. say a prayer they take him right away!!
