I am new to this site and I just wanted to introduce myself. I have been on a downward spiral for about 4 years now and thought that alcoholism was my problem. After seen a therapist and a Natrupath, I was actually diagnosed BP. My mother is BP so it makes sense. It also makes sens why AA and those types of support groups never worked for me. I drink because it shuts off my brain and helps me relax. That is the only time I can relax actually. I am moody as heck and fly off the handle at little things. I have thought about hurting myself or others, never really going to do it though. I am on Seraquil XL, and wheening off Lexapro. I am here just hoping that if I talk to some others like me, I can start to get better. My marriage is almost gone and I can't let that happen. Please help with words of wisdom or anything you can share.
