I’m new here!

Hi, my name is Joey C. I've been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I also think I may be manic bipolar as well. I’ve been having massive mood swings, I become irritated very easily. I feel like I have some highs but mostly lows lately.

Worry

I have a lot of company here at home who came in for the 4th of July holiday. It’s been great, but very overstimulating. Yesterday, my mood and activity level were very high. And last night I could not sleep. With all the activity yesterday I should have been very physically wiped out. I wanted to get out of bed and go do something. But with all our guests I couldn’t, as they were all sleeping. Then it dawned on me, I might be starting another manic attack. I’m jittery this morning and my mind is racing. I can’t afford this now. #Bipolar1 #Manic

Hi, my name is healing73angel. I'm here because I had my first manic episode which lasted for 6 months. It came out of no where which finally led to a BPD diagnosis. I am still in shock from what happened, what I did, what I was thinking at that time and now I have to repair all the damage I did to myself and my family.

Forging

It’s been a tiring, trying couple months. This weekend culminated in a very tense, but needed conversation between my wife and I about my reluctance to take Lithium. It breaks my heart to realize his difficult my manias have been in her over the years. So, silently I’m on my third dose tonight. Today, when aI came home from work she told me she needed to apologize. I asked why. She replied that she’d not really looked at this through my eyes. Today she did. And she began to understand my fear of losing who I am. But that was enough for me. I will keep moving forward. And work toward calming this thing inside. #BipolarDisorder #Manic #PTSD

Hi, my name is Rktsmith1. I'm here because I would like some tips on how to get yourself outta bed. I recently slept for 20 hours straight. My 17 year old daughter unfortunately suffers with the same diagnoses... chronic anxiety, chronic depression, ptsd and bipolar disorder. I would like some tips in how to handle her manic times and how to help motivate her when I can't even motivate myself.
My name is Kristy and I'm glad to find some information from real people whose experienced the same situations. Thank you ahead of time!

Heartbreak

My partner of 9 years ended our relationship as soon as I was hospitalised during a very severe manic episode. He told my family not me. He has then refused to explain why he didn’t this way. I feel like a fool and he’s just one more person to add to the list of those who have just abandoned me. The kicker is I always asked him to promise to do it kindly if he wanted to leave. He always said we would always be friends. I am having a very hard time accepting all of this.
