Hi everyone. I have a question for all of you

I was diagnosed with Bi-polar when I was 13 years old. I've been on several different medications and have seen many different psyciatrists. Recently though over the last three years I have been without either. I've felt fine off and on, although recently I have noticed alot of symptoms returning and its starting to disturb me. I don't know what is going on, i thought that everything just went away, but now even my husband is starting to see problems. I don't know what to do, I have no medical insurance and I think that my husband is getting fed up with my behavior. Is there anything that anyone knows about that can help me control my issues? anything would do

Hi Young_insecure,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. We're glad you're here. I've noticed you've already responded to a couple of posts. Thanks for jumping right in.

Yeah, bipolar doesn't go away, I'm afraid. I'm sorry your symptoms are getting worse after a few good years. You should probably get to a doctor. Even without insurance, you should still be able to see one. Most towns have a mental health clinic which sees patients on a sliding scale. They usually offer therapy as well.

In the meantime, the rules of bipolar: minimize stress, no alcohol, and get plenty of regular sleep. Not as easy as they sound written out like that, but goals to work towards. :-)

Hope you feel better. Let us know how you're doing.
