whenever ive opened up about my mental illness or how im feeling ive been shamed by my 'friends' and family. the funny thing is they apparently felt the same way when i spent time, i mean hours talking to them into the early morning but when i needed them i was 'too much' and apparently had no reason for the way that i felt.

I've also tried Wellbutrin, which made me totally insane, and just tried Lithium, which I also reacted badly to (intense itching all over my body & extreme nausea).
I'm just looking for some other medications I can ask my doctor about.
