Hi everybody!!
 
This is my very first post on this Forum....I just needed some support as i am deailng with alot of issues (as I am sure we all are..) especially with my recently diagnosed BIpolar Disorder.  I am 50 years young and within a year i received this diagnosis.  Kinda wish I had found out years earlier as everybody in my family would always comment about how moody i was!  LOL - TOday is a better day for me but yesterday I cried most of the whole day to the point that i could not even go out of my house...afraid i wud burst into tears.  I believe I am definitely on the low end of my "pole" and suffering from severe depression.  Of course the holiday did not help a bit.  My medication is jsut not working.  I cannot get in to see the psychiatrist until Wednesday the 30th....  Today is better.  I never used to cry but not anymore.  Is anyone else out there going through this.  I can just think of anything like if someone is nice to me and I will start crying.  It is just awful.  Well any feedback you guys can give me (words of encouragement, etc.) will be so very much appreciated. 
 
Thanks bunches,
Kathy

Hi Kathy,

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.

Be well,

Hi ~ I have struggled mhy whole life with this condition going to psychiatrists off and on, and was diagnosed with severe major depressive disorder and an emotional disorder, but just never was properly diagnosed with the real problem. i really believe my immediate family members are also undiagnosed with the condition and i was told that my grandmother on my father's side was paranoid schizophrenic, so she probably had symptoms of this as well. THank you for responding to me. I believe i can make it until tomorrow, but i am really still having quite a tough time. Please keep me in your prayers. Kathy

This place is a really good place to get help, advise, and ears to listen to your days, problems, and episode. I have the worst of the bipolar, and have found the people in here to be very kind, sympathetic and understanding.

Hang in there and reach out and don't be afraid to say what's on your mind.

Yep, depression is no fun.  No one knows what true depresssion is until they experience it.  It is not just being sad.  It is being sad for absolutley no reason. You just cry and are sad all the time.  The simpliest little things could make you sad and cry.  ((Hugs)) I hope the pdoc gives you something to make things easier for you.
