    Question

    is it really normal to deny the diagnosis of your doctor and find like you’re feeling better right after being diagnosed?

    Ive been diagnosed with bipolar two disorder and GAD just 4 days ago. I just started taking my medicine for bipolar two and I dont feel like I need to be drinking them since I feel very stable at the moment. I dont even know how to distinguish “mood swings” or if it’s part of Bipolar two. Ive been recollecting memories which I can associate with hypomania since I’m still trying to make sense out of what the doctor diagnosed me. I was actually shocked because I thought it was just a simple depression and anxiety but the doctor said I have bipolar two. Anyway, only my parents and my bf know about this. I cant even tell them how hard it is for me to make sense out of everything. Also, I dont know when to take Xanax because my doctor told me to drink it as needed. #BipolarDisorder #BipolarTypeII #Bipolar2Disorder #Anxiety #Lamotrigine #Xanax

    Question

    #BipolarTypeII I'd like to know how we can determine we are better

    I hear all the positive affirmations and the encouraging words about how we are getting better by simply 'staying with it' or 'not giving up' and giving in to our suicidal tendencies, but I would simply like to know how can we determine if we are really getting better. What are the metrics and if so, how do we use them?

    Question

    Smoking with bipolar disorder?

    They diagnosed me with type 2 bipolar disorder last year. Of course within that I have major depressive disorder. My psychiatrist and my therapist both want me on medication (for obvious reasons) but I really don’t wanna do that until maybe I can find a natural option to help. Marijuana is legal where I live as long as you have a card so I was wondering if anyone else uses that to help? Even cbd by chance? I just wanted some opinions. ☺️ thanks #Bipolar #BipolarTypeII #MajorDepressionDisorder

    I've been sober from alcohol for a year now. I used to binge drink which would lead to thoughts or actions of self harm. This year has been probably the safest year for me. I'm proud but also annoyed that I cannot drink alcohol safely since it's such a socially accepted and expected thing to do.

    A borderline who turns off their emotions post heartbreak

    I have been grappling with multiple heartbreaks this year, some pertaining to a person I thought was my soulmate, my tumultuous relationship with my identical twin and all together the disappointment I experience from being hospitalized, medicated, neglected and diagnosed with BPD and Bipolar Depression. I am now living in a new city, in grad school and starting to date again- but I do not feel like I can be excited or invested in anything as my being has been depleted. Being emotionally invested is part of my being but it feels like something has been shut off so I do not become suicidal or unregulated. Its like turning off your humanity on the vampire diaries without all the bad deeds. I know I cannot be the only borderline who has become numb and afraid to be invested in relationships. I do not know when this will end and a part of me feels extremely powerless.
