Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. We have all been there, that's for sure -- the moods, the inexplicable emotions, the frustration. I'm glad you're seeing your psych soon.
How did it happen that you're just now getting diagnosed? It does seem a bit "late" for the diagnosis, but it's not the latest I've heard. And obviously, some people live their whole lives bipolar and never know. It's better to know what the problem is, I think.
