you need to see your doc! Are you not on any meds at all then?
jjcraigo, I am concerned - are you diagnosed bipolar? I assume you are or you probably wouldn't be posting on a BP forum. Why are you not on meds!!!!!!! BPs don't just get well. And effexor is not a good med to take for a BP, especially without a stabilizer. Even you are just depressed at the moment. I suggest you get a competent doctor (pdoc) who will treat you - you are playing with fire.
I am sorry for your situation, tho.
