For many many yrs i went untreated for bipolar and it "ruined my life" until i went to the VA hospital and sat down with a physiatrist who helped me so much, he actually said "Rich do you know you have bipolar" i never had a clue from that day on i was put on lithium and my life dramatically changed for the better ( this was back in 2010) and i haven't looked back , so what i would like to say to "you" is seek treatment it cant hurt you if at the very least it too can change your life i am so grateful i sought help, give yourself a chance you are so worth it , don't let anyone tell you otherwise your life is worth it , you're worth it more then you will ever know.
