I hope you find this site cozy and supportive. Nobody here will think you're a 'weird psycho' or anything. I guess we're all here because we've had some problem or another. And some people recover and are never to be seen again.

My mom has a friend who was diagnosed with bi-polar but he is very happy and manages his condition and does not need medication. And I met with a friend today who has bi-polar and is currently well and not needing any medication.

So...people can and do recover from all sorts of mental illness. :flowers:

:welcome:

Hi Sky - if it is bipolar and you've been controlling it for 22 years - that's good.
It could be you would benefit from a touch of medicine - which should help..

Hi Sky!

Everyone hear is lovely and supportive and won't think you're nuts at all! Being diagnosed can be scary but with the right support (and possibly meds!) you'll get through it. Quite a few people on here have BP and manage to get by.

Chin up :flowers:

Hi sky. Being diagnosed with any mental illness is always frightening. Over my 21 years with being under Psychiatric care, I have had numerous diagnosis. I am not even sure what the current ones are beside Bipolar. when I asked my Pdoc what other diagnosis I had - he said that I was very complicated?? Not sure what to make of that lol.
When I was dx'd with Bipolar - I finally got treated with the correct medications and finally feel good again. I generally feel happy most of the time of as my Pdoc says .. too happy. I don't mind - anything is better than depressions and anxiety. I hope that if you are Bipolar - you will find out and hopefully get treated - should it be medication of therapy. Some people manage somehow without medication. Not sure that is the way to go for me personally lol. I go far to manic.
Take care and good luck.

tHANK YOU

Thank you everyone for being so kind
I have had all these wierd symptoms for years it has been put down to various upsets in my life or to severe clinical depression and they always say when i feel high as my mum refers to it its just me hiding the depression i keep telling them something isnt right at least now someone has listened only problem is it may be too late im so unpredictable laughing crying shouting and being absolutly dreadfull to people and in a way not even realising it and never knowing when its going to happen that I have lost friends as I tell them its them not me and I recently fell in love ive pretty much lost him to he felt something wasnt right ages ago he has put up with alot of incredibly bad treatment from me im suprised he didnt leave ages ago that is what made me face up to it take the plunge stop lying about stuff and visit gp i never thought he would say he felt i was bi polar ive lost it so many times done some absolutly crazy things and lost so many people due to the way i suddenly go from funny mad to bitch from hell mad to down dont want to see anyone that ive just been loosing the grip faster and faster.I hope and pray that i will find out what is wrong re build life and then my relationship but i dunno maybe i kept it all secret for too long i screwed up lets face it.when feeling up go out and do something a bit loopy when down hide if cant hide perfect hair and make up a painted on smile is always a good disguise now i curse myself for it.i THINK ONE OF THE WIERDEST ONES IS FEELING SO DOWN BUT HAVING A BODY THAT HAS ALL THE SYMPTOMS OF EXCITEMENT BUTTERFLIES TWITCHING LAUGHING THATS WHEN I CANT SLEEP OR SLEEP ABOUT 10 MINS AT A TIME YET IM SEEM TO BE TIRED ALWAYS ITS ALL VERY ODD.
ANYWAY I DO SEEM TO BE RATTLING ON HOPE IVE NOT SENT YOU ALL TO SLEEP
THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLIES
TAKE CARE
