I don't know how to cope. I have become physically violent, I don't respond well to medication it is what made me have my first ever manic episode and violent behaviors. when I came off meds everything seemed fine and then the other day I self-harmed and hit my boyfriend in rage. I also have OCD so I'm having tons of intrusive thoughts and "what ifs" "what if I kill him" has been the worst and hardest I'm breaking down mentally.

Hello, I was recently diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder myself. Have they said anything about putting you on a mood stabilizer? Anti-depresents can make bipolar worse and sometimes cause Mania. Since being diagnosed I was placed on a mood stabilizer (lamotrigine) and it has done wonders for me. Best of luck moving forward 🙂 always here if you want to talk.
