Changing my mind all the time

I’ve been diagnosed bipolar but also have anxiety. 8 constantly change my mind on things. I go back and forthwith what I like. Also with political parties. Sometimes I like. Retain tv shows and other times I don’t like them. I changed insurance and less than a month later I changed back. I am wondering why I do this. My psychiatrist just says she dies t want to put a label on things but it ...

Starting to think my boyfriend can't handle my illness *TW*

I have a boyfriend of a year and a half that has generally been really great and patient with me and my illness, but lately I've been feeling like he doesn't know how to handle it. Just yesterday I had a really long day where basically everything went wrong, but nothing that was catastrophic by itself. After a long day with transportation nightmares (bus was 3 hours late, making me late to work and then ...

I don't think i'm actually bipolar??

Hi everyone!!
So, I was diagnosed w/bipolar a few days ago by a psychologist. This was my first time seeing this person and the reason I was even seeing her in the first place was that I was in a 5150 hold and they set up the appointment for me when they released me (I was in the hospital for suicidal ideation) and I was in an LA county hospital so they made the appointment ...

Alcohol, drunk, and lack of drunkness

Today is second time that I can remember this happening. I don't own alcometer, but should probably buy one for the third one to see if my blood is still drunk as it should be.

Long story short; drank vodka from ~3 am to 8 am, chat with a friend for bit, went to shop at 9 am (feeling definitely drunk), got home, got some breakfast, had another drink - and realized I'm not actually ...

Sleep problems

I don't understand why I'm doing this - I stay up all night and become incredibly sleep deprived but continue to do it over and over again. I just want to be awake, and I feel like I have a lot of energy and stay up watching TV, listening to music, surfing the net, cooking, showering and thinking out loud to myself. I don't know if I'm staying up because I'm distracted by with things, ...

I need suggestions for a silly routine to break a dark mood

I have an old Readers Digest article about ways to bring more humor into one's life. One of the things it suggests is: "Develop a silly routine to break a dark mood." I can't think of ANYTHING. So, dear people, can any of you come up with silly routines??????

Alcohol & Meds

I'm on a low dose Zoloft + Lamictal for Bipolar 2/bipolar depression. I have a friend traveling a long distance to celebrate our big birthdays. She wants to spend one day visiting wineries. She's not a partier but enjoys wine very much. My pdoc firmly told me no more than 1 glass for the special occasion.

I've only drank once in the last few years. I had one glass of champagne (I'm guessing 4oz) and ...

New member dealing with acute bpd


I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with bipolar 1. I have a long history of mental illness and often have thought about suicide. I have even attempted it once before. Added to this are religious thoughts and spiritual crises that have plagued me. I frequently have guilt to the degree that nothing I do anymore will save me from an eternal pubishment. Its a lethal mental cocktail but I have talked it ...
