    I'm not bipolar but I'll say the obvious, go get professional help and let them do the diagnosis and the necessary treatment. Don't rely on people on the internet for anything other than support.

    Hope you find the help you need.

    agreed, my mom has it but the best thing to do is go get officially diagnosed and get the right meds, if they say you don't and you feel you have the symptoms...i.e manic depression, high energy level at times, great lows, and great highs, anxious, etc....go get seen immediately. People with Bipolar varies from person to person, you can go to your local library and get books on it. Some people can function with it, some people have had really tragic results. So good luck!

    I have been diagnosed Bipolar. It's not fun at all and finding the right meds and dosages really suck. But after they found the right drugs for me, my life is SO much better. If you want my pin just pm me.

    No my man, don't wait. Call your county mental health department and find the clinic that'll see you now. Most work plans don't give you a hassle for preexisting. This is an organic illness that you need to be treated for NOW. If the doc only wants to give you anti depresants, run to someone else. You have to get this under control. It will give your life back to you.
    I had to go through the hospital inpatient treatment for depression a few years ago and spent many days with bipolar friends. I know the highs are intense, but you shouldn't have to endure the lows. There is help.
    Many of the meds are affordable so you can take the first step. There's nothing wrong with being ill and doing what it takes to get well.
    Lots of us want to hear how you're doing. Keep us posted. Remember to start calling around, today.
