Hi all, I'm Andrew. I'm 20 years old from northern California in the US. I am a recovering manic bipolar, I've never been diagnosed but the people I have talked to say its manic bipolar or manic depression or something like that. I tried commiting suicide 3 years ago and have come a long way from that state of mind on my own. I would say I'm about 95% out of that hole, and I am proud to say I never used any medications and never talked to a therapist. I owe the world to my friends for their continued support, however I have hit a road block that I cannot pass with the support of friends, or by self management and logic. So I have decided to join these forums. I look forward to joining this community in hopes of finding healing and helping others.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I find it interesting when people decide that they have something particular without diagnosis. Diagnosis can tend to just label you but presuming you have something isn't always a safe thing to do.

Having had bipolar disorder from my teens I'd love to know how you cope without medication. I've tried several times and just get very ill.
