I guess I'm bipolar...

So I've been diagnosed this passed hospitalization with bipolar.

The two hospitalizations before that I was borderline.

My first hospitalization I was gen. anxiety and maj. depression.

Am I happy with this new diagnosis? I don't know. I just want to be able to function properly. Go to work, go to college, and have healthy relationships...that's all I want.

I don't have anyone to talk to and the three that I could (wife, mom, father) I still wouldn't because I don't want to seem like a baby, manipulative, or what not. So I am keeping it all to myself.

Right now I feel pretty depressed. I can't concentrate. Pretty hopeless again. And the thoughts of death and self harm have returned just a week after the hospitalization.

I'm so sick of this. I just want to be normal. I want to be successful. I want to make money. I wan't to be a functioning adult. But anyways...I guess I am here to get help outside my outpatient appts. I feel as if bipolar is a life sentence of pain and struggle.
