I can't explain to what is happening...just that I'm numb, trying my best not to fall into the only thing I know how to do. I'm simply breathing, trying to keep my feet moving. My world is changing faster than I thought it would, I'm shutting down....

You sound so frightened and understandably so.  Over the years I have had those times that I am barely hanging on and what I have learned is it will pass and life will be easier.  Finding out you are bi-polar in itself is mind shayyering and you are as you knew might change.  But you have to try extra hard to look for something special every day and if it is only a few seconds, you will feel OK.  Hopefully, those seconds, will turn to minutes and then the minutes to hours.  I know that all sounds impossible to you right now.  Grab onto something...anything to stop your further descent.  I know...been there, done that for over 25+ years  and so far I have survived.  Hang in there and keep in touch the nessage board.

I don't know what to say dear. Just breathe. It will pass. If you need help to get through, take it!

I hope things get better soon. I am in the same sinking boat as you. Came home from work "sick" because I just can't deal. I am so glad to have my online support friends. Just say what you need to and get it all out.
