Remember to keep your thoughts under control - you are in charge not them. Just because you have a thought that does not mean it is necessarily:
True.
Something you need to act on.
A reason for feeling a certain way.
Untrue!
Any more important then the thought 'oh look its raining'.......

I was diagnosed with bipolar but my moods flip in a matter of minutes not weeks or months. Its not like bipolar for them to change at this rate. I'm seeing a new psychiatrist soon for a new diagnosis were thinking its bpd. I also found anti depressents made me worse so I'm now on a atypical anti psychotic called seroquel xr. Which is also used for bpd it hasn't done wonders but its the best meds i have tried

I have been reading post to your thread, ....

I read Maxitab 's post a week ago.....

I agree......get properly diagnosed.....you must 'insist' your GP refer you to your local metal health department...

proper medication for the proper illness....

You have struggled on your own for long enough.....you must 'ALLOW' yourself the help.....

As said already in thread....DO NOT SUFFER UNNECESSARILY....

mental health have treatments for the symptoms, give them a chance to help you...

best wishes
