Just a separate post from my last few that I'd like to get some opinions on. This is something my wife and I have been talking about lately and not sure really how to approach it. So, I posted a few times the last few days about my wife having, what appeared to be, a slight relapse, what appeared to be a minor manic episode (triggered by alcohol?), something she recovered from almost immediately (less than a day). As we sat down and discussed what happened and if there were any warning signs, we began comparing her happiness to concern. I hate that this is something we need to tread lightly with. My wife came off olanzapine back in late June, early July. Like most woman on this forum, her journey was a difficult one. Though I've heard much more extreme cases of PPP, this process still was not easy for us. Her initial psychosis landed her in the hospital for just 2 days where they prescribed her Olanzapine, 15mg daily. It helped with mania almost immediately but of course came with other side effects. Like most others on here, my wife then battled with bouts of anxiety and depression before full recovery. She had some minor side effects coming off the medication but nothing that she couldn't control and nothing that lasted more than just a few days. During this entire process, my wife realized that she hated her job once she returned to it. Even though she came off her medication, she was still pretty miserable and struggled to find a new job right away. Well, long story short, she found a new job and about 5 weeks ago put in her notice with her old job and just 2 weeks ago started her new job. During that time, I haven't seen my wife so happy and joyful. She was finally off the medication that made her a walking zombie for 7 months, she finally got out of the job she hated and for the first time, it seemed that that portion of our life was finally behind us. My wife is on her 3rd week of her new job and she loves it!! Well, as I stated earlier, a week and a half ago she had a very short minor episode that came under control after just hours. No hospitalization, no medication. She's been sleeping pretty well most nights and has no issues going to work and getting through her day. She works out regularly and has a pretty healthy routine. My wife has no prior mental health condition and wasn't diagnosed with anything after PPP. We sit here now and wonder if her happiness and joy the last 4-5 weeks were signs of hypomania that led to that little episode or is it just happiness. Even since her slight episode a week ago, after being shook up for a just a few days, she is right back to her normal self. I can vividly remember my wife the first 6 weeks our son was born before her psychosis and those weeks resembled mania way more that her last 5 weeks, or even 5 months since coming off the medication. It's just been so long since I've seen my wife this happy that I don't want to discredit it or assume there is something wrong. I don't want her to think that every time she is in a joyful mood that there is something wrong. Has anyone else ever battled with this line?
