I’m sorry that you are suffering. There are a couple of ways to address this situation.
The first one has to do with your medication. You have been taking certain medications for a ” long time” but never feel good. I’m wondering if your medications need to be adjusted. I would recommend discussing that possibility with your prescribing doctor. He or she might want to alter the dosage or prescribe a different medication. Medications can work for a while and then stop working. It’s important to report this information to your doctor who can adjust your medications accordingly.
The second way to address this situation is to enter psychotherapy. Psychotherapy can assist you in dealing with your emotions and responses to certain situations. You believe that you are overreacting to certain events and that may or may not be true. A therapist can objectively assess those situations and teach you the necessary coping skills for handling your emotional response. Consider choosing a therapist who specializes in treating individuals who have bipolar disorder.
You’re quite insightful for recognizing the need for help. Adjusting your medications and entering psychotherapy could significantly decrease your symptoms and restore emotional stability. I wish you the best of luck. Please take care.
