None of us here are qualified to help you like a doctor or mental health specialist(s). Is there someone else you can talk to who has the expertise in mental health?

What are some of your questions/issues?

Demand a mental health assessment, explain what you have here and they should give you one. Whether it's Bipolar or not is for the assessment to discover though. Good luck, let us know how you get on on Tuesday.

If you can afford it, I would get assessed by a private psychiatrist.
Hearing voices is NOT normal.
It may not be bipolar that your dealing with.
A professional can help you in this matter.
