I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar though suspect i've actually had it for years. Stick around as you will get lots of help and support on here. I've found this to be a very friendly site indeed.
Hey missybee, we've got a similar username! I like chatting and promise not to think you are a fruitcake!
I self-diagnosed yesterday and plan to go to the Drs tomorrow. I've been reading other threads about how long a diagnosis will take, have decided that I will go to A&E next time I get suicidal. You have know idea how refreshing it is to be able to say "I get suicidal".
