I just wanted to know whether my symptoms are anything like that of a BiPolar patient?
I get very aggressive very quickly and I am anxious at times too. I am not really depressed or suicidal, yet I do sometimes become slightly more depressed (worried) about life in general and it effects me more than what I would like it too.
I have major mood swings some times and it changes in no time at all. I have a very short temper and when frustrated / stressed / angry for some or other reason, it effects other aspects of my life too.
I am making plans to go see my GP next week some time (A.S.A.P) and will go see a Psychiatrist if need be. I have heard that Lithium effects your kidneys and is not recommended for long term use. What is the best (most effective and least damaging to my body) long term prescription drug used for this "mild form of BiPolar", if that is what I actually have?
Do these symptoms remind you of someone that has BiPolar disorder?
If so, which form or degree of BiPolar would it most likely be?
I thank you in advance for your assistance!
