Feeling lost

Feeling lost like I’ve lost my sense of identity like I don’t know who I am any more, I kind of feel like I’m floating around like a ghost like people could walk right through me

I don’t want to talk to family and friends because I don’t want to worry them and plus I don’t think anything they would say that would help my situation....

I can’t stop thinking 100 miles a hour like will I ever be able to have children will I ever be stable enough, can I progress in my career and handle pressure

Will I ever feel ok ? Sorry for the low mood post just needed to put my feelings down and feel like I’m talking to people that maybe know how I feel .... hope your all having a good day 😊

Hi Jess,
Are you on any treatments for your bipolar?
I found antipsychotics slowed my fast thinking down, they do have side effects however.
Hope you feel better very soon.
You can improve with the right treatments.
Take care

It sounds like you need a med review, are you seeing your pyschiatrist soon?

yeah, i take propranolol before public speaking and works great for anxiety. not sure about taking it everyday (causes depression and libido loss).
