Hello, I'm new here, thanks for having me.
I've been to the doctors recently as I suspect I am bipolar. I have an appointment with the psychiatric nurse tomorrow.
I have always thought I suffered with depression as I get these terrible despairing lows, and never considered the highs to be a problem until recently, I always thought that was the 'real me' or the best me. I get so hyper and feel great, and can learn to play instruments in a few short weeks, or write tunes, be the life and soul.. you get the idea, I get very enthusiastic ans optimistic about things. Some of the high periods have been deeply spiritual in nature. Recently I have realised that these could be manic episodes. Looking back on some of them, I can pinpoint where my mood changed- there was like a rush of happiness and I could feel the magic in the air, like electricity, started to feel pretty damn good! Then there have been the insane credit card spending to fuel the latest fad.

Anyway, rather than go on and on, suffice to say I am having a confusing time at the moment, perhaps a mixed episode or something, but I'm having trouble coping with 'modern life' and am extremely forgetful, and feel a bit weird. I keep feeling sort of lost. I don't want medication because I still kinda believe that this is a spiritual process and want to let it run its course, but feel like I could do with a helping hand to deal with my normal life in the meantime.

Sure you will find support here.
You sound very aware of the times when you have mania, thats a good thing if you can control it. Wish you lots of luck, be safe.

i think you'll like it here, i've only been here a couple of days myself, i'd never been on a site before where you can communicate without sight or voice.I,m finding it a bit like my duvet on a cold ,wet,windy morn, nice and warm.I've been amongst a crowd before and felt very lonely,but not here.
