I am a recovering alcoholic/marijuana user. My wife is gently nudging me to find out if I am bipolar. I am under the care of a psychiatrist and I take Luvox 150 mg per day once a day at dinner time for depression and anxiety. My doctor will not provide me with a diagnosis of weather or not I am truly bipolar unless I can get 90 days sober. I have a program for my sobriety so I am working toward that goal and hope and pray everyday that I can reach 90 days sober. I want to know if I am bipolar. My wife has shown me articles and literature and I am finally on this site being honest with myself. I get to find out if I'm bipolar and get sober at the same time. What ever my doctor says is what I am. I'm not happy about anything right now in my life. I HAVE THE HIGHEST HIGHS AND THE LOWEST LOWS. I can't accomplish anything anymore. I keep hearing from my wife, family, friends, strangers, people I meet at meetings, that i have a lot of potential. I have had some success in my life. I used to run my own successful business. I am facing my fears and God willing I will figure this out. If anyone has experience with what I just described, I would love to get a little insight, because I'm done experimenting. I'm going to try sobriety doctors and medication for now.
