hello
im 24 I run a very succesful business but has created a lot of stress, along with so much more. My girlfriend left me who promised to stay by my side. She's left twice, the second one was when i snapped at her for no reason and regretted it and forgot what I had even done. I was jumping out of the car at 20mph and just walked off. Fried. I have done some violent things in my life but I am a very caring person. I dont want to lose everyone and I feel I really now need to change. After seeing out of hours GP I was referred and referred again to a mental institute last night. People walking around like zombies. Scary stuff, I didnt want to stay but thankfully I have two nurses who come see me every morning with medication now. I still dont know what the diagnosis is. The first doctor said depression, 2nd said Mania, 3rd (My nurses) Are still assessing me and thinking Bipolar and ADHD. Thanks for listening and im open to help and advice as I dont talk to anyone any more

:welcome: justbrad. Welcome to the Forum. Coming to a proper diagnosis seems a bit confusing in your case. Hope all turns out well.

hey, the doctor i seen today at the mental health hospital is 80 percent sure it's bipolar. I'm on 500mg depakote , 1mg risperidone, and the zopiclone for sleeping. I have been using headspace and doing my 10 minutes a day. I
still snap and get angry and have mood swings but lets be fair, its been a few days since I even seeked help. I've not been right for years. I hope all turns out well too x

It can take time to get well that's for sure. I'm glad you sought help. You made the first step. Now follow thru and hopefully you get much better. Best wishes and happy recovery. Peace
