They might be but i think the best thing is 2 go c ur gp and tell them how ur feelin


I had been like that over last 3 weeks, and getting worse. I'm now unable (or won't??) go out of the house. My friend forced me to the GP's 2 days ago and I've been signed off (again). I spoke to psychiatrist over the phone, can you talk to your GP or someone if you have a support worker over the phone initially?
Its difficult to get an appointment unless its a real 'crisis' so I'm left finding myself feeling orse each day. They've upped my meds but I have to wait 2 more weeks to see the psychiatrist again

not always a relapse. you could be just having a bad day! once your labled with bipolar seems we are not allowed good or bad days without someone worrying!
im having a shit day, yet if i tell anyone they will cart me of to hospital!

keep an eye on your mood, if it lasts for a week or so then maybe speak to your doc.


I think you're right, its hard to tell if its just a crap few days or the condition.

I wonder what is my personality anymore sometimes, I used to be so bubbly but I know what will happen if I come off the meds.

Do you get involved in anything in Portsmouth then? Is there much support?
