Hi everyone; I came across this forum while looking at information about
bipolar. I'm new here and while not new to knowing about
bipolar, I'm new to recognizing that I have it, and badly. I have an appointment with my doc in a few days. I'm on Aderall for what is supposedly hyperactive states with ADHD but I now firmly believe that it has been *manic* states that were misinterpreted as hyperactive ADHD states. I easily meet all criteria for both manic and depressed states in a single day (mixed state), and do everyday. I never calm down unless I'm just too tired to do anything. Otherwise, I'm super hyperactive and can't slow down. At the end of the day, it is like a runaway train and I get manic into the night until I finally crash and then I'm zapped the next day and useless. Then the process starts again. I am really hoping for a solution this time because I have been at my wits end lately.
Well there are good things about
me too like I'm cool and awesome and I ♥ The Chicago White Sox and college football, the outdoors, movies, music, non-fiction books, foreign languages and cultures. Probably other stuff too. I just want to feel good again so I can get back into life because I've been missing out lately. I live 45 minutes away from the best beach within 500 miles and I haven't been once this year! Maybe tomorrow though.
