Bipolar?

Hi. I am a 38-year-old female who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2008. Since the age of 13, I have found myself depressed more often than not, with episodes of hypomania few and far between and intermittent periods of normalcy. I sometimes have auditory and visual hallucinations, with the auditory ones occurring more frequently than the visual ones. I can usually identify them as being unreal — they sound like a radio that...

I have panic attack where I get very nervous and angry but I am not sure if that counts as a manic episode. I will start breathing very quickly till the point of not taking in any oxygen, driving dangerously down the roads, cutting myself,...

What & Why Do I Feel This Way?

As a teenager I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and when I was younger with ADHD, I have not followed up with any treatment mostly because therapy and median made me tired and mad. My father was an alcoholic and I went through a lot of traumatic things by age 13 and truly didn’t want to be bothered or cope. I believe that’s where I developed my skill of blacking stuff out and turning...

Being Alone Too Often

Okay so I have bipolar disorder… and I have no idea if this has anything to do with it so that’s why I’m asking. My mom works 2 jobs so I am home by myself most of the time. Not having someone here to talk to when she is gone is making me feel like I’m losing my grip on reality. I’m paranoid, worried and depressed. I don’t know what’s going on. (age 18,...

Bipolar and the Medicine Dilemma

I’m diagnosed with Bipolar 1 and general anxiety. I’ve been on lithium, depakote, paxil, haldol, hydroxyzine, and others. I’m currently only taking Trazadone 100mg for sleep. I have a behavioral problem that I’ve had all my life where I get excited about really unimportant things (high score on a game, picture I took on my phone, etc) and I bite my hand. It’s to the point where my hand is pretty calloused. I never...

I am unable to attempt to initiate a romantic relationship. I try my best...
