Hi. I've been stable a long time, and have not done an overnighter in the hospital for three years Well, this past May I got this job. I suddenly had to wake up around 4 in the morning. Two weeks ago, I stopped taking my Prozac because I felt myself getting a little high- I do that often, and my pdoc knows it, too. Usually when I do this, my moods return to normal in a few days. Not this time. Even sans Prozac, I got higher. Yesterday I went to the ER with racing thoughts etc. etc. The nurse told me that maybe my job, with the hours I have, is not good for maintaining my stability. So far today, I am still working. I am going to discuss what the nurse said with my pdoc, or gp if I can't see her. Still, the possibility of giving up the best job I've had in a long time is scary, if only because I have student loans to pay. If I have to quit, what about my loans?!
