Hi Bumblebee,

Welcome to HealingWell. Great to have you. We're glad your family pushed you to look! We're a support-driven community so take your time, look through the posts, ask questions. Have you been diagnosed yet or just recently?

It is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare

Hi Serafena, I was actually daignosed in 2004 but I have been struggling with this disease since my early teens. I stopped taking meds in late 2006 cause i wanted to deal with life on my own. I was doing a good job of keeping my emotions in check (to an extent) until about 2 weeks ago. My best friend thinks my body just couldn't take the forced metal suppression combined with forcing a manic episode to conteract a depressive one since I'm more depressive than manic and my manic episodes last 1 day 3 at most before I'm level for 3 to 4 weeks.

That's pretty fast cycling. I'm sorry you're having a bad spell though. So will you be going back on meds when you see your doc?

well the manic ones yes (shamefully i wish they lasted longer). Depressive episodes, not so fast, they last more than a week if I am not able to force a manic episode. Longest depressive episode i had I think was 3 weeks.

~hugz~ thanks for caring

Uhm, I'm not sure. I have my appointment next week. I'll talk with the doc and explore all my options. I have two maternal aunts who are bi-polar (one is more manic and one is more depressive, but neither get sucidal thoughts, I'm the only one of the 3 that gets those) and they use holistic medicine because they claim it has less side effects and they don't get the zombie effect. At the same time I'm skeptical about all treatments, holistic and medical.

I was even wondering if I was diagnosed correctly. Back in 2004 one P.A. diagnosed me as Schizo-affective with bi-polar tendancies. Then two different psychiatrists (one i hated, and one i adored) both agreed I was bipolar. So it all seems to point to the same thing.

So I guess I'll find out. And again thanks.

Welcome,
Like you I also am new here-just kept searching until I came upon this site. I suffer from biopolar 2---and I am at present experiencing a down mood. I recently had surgery this week and since being put to sleep--I have felt the depression coming on at a fast pace. I feel like I want to cry but nothing--absoulately nothing...I feel like I could just scream. Hope we all find a save haven here.

I hope you do too, Daisha. I hope the surgery is nothing too serious.
