Is this bipolar?

Hello, I am new here. I have been trying to find some answers about myself in order to improve, and this is part of that.

I'm in college, and I do pretty well, majoring in engineering with good grades. I am typically a very neat person, and I very much like to have certain places like my room in order, neat and tidy. I get into these moods where I do everything super proper, following ...

Hi everyone, newly diagnosed bipolar here

After years of perusing these forums, I had an hour long initial intake with a well-regarded psychiatrist yesterday who diagnosed me with bipolar disorder. Since it took a while to discuss my experiences, etc, we are meeting again today to discuss medication and treatment options.
I am at once relieved and shocked. Relieved, because this explains so much of my life especially the past few years of my twenties. Shocked, because in the years of ...

bipolar trauma (from someone in remission) TW: s/h

hi all,

When i was 17-18-19-20 my bipolar 2 disorder was an extremely heavy burden on my life. I was hospitalized frequently for suicide attempts, botched self harm jobs, and one psychotic break that left me incapacitated for months.

Experiences with Gabapentin?

I don't know much about Gabapentin as a mood stabilizer (or any people who take it), so I'm wondering if anyone here can share what mental health symptoms it has been helpful for?

Like Looking in a Mirror

I have been binge watching a series in which the protagonist is bipolar. It's hard for me to watch because I see myself and it's embarrassing. The drastic mood swings, the anger, the over-the-top behavior. I have, on-and-off for years tried to say that I'm not bipolar, but in watching this series it's like looking in a mirror.

Error

20 years ago if someone told me the things i know now, i would have thought they were mentally ill and think they need a psychiatrist. Now 20 years later i think of this and i am now that person who is labeled mentally ill for what i know. It's a lonely place to be. I'm in a very painful place. My family, loved ones, ex-psychiatrist have conspired against me, yet of course it looks ...

Hypomania with psychotic symptoms or mania?

I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder type 1 and I'm trying to understand it better. Basically, I get (what looks and feels like) hypomanic episodes (I'm definitely elevated but can function in social situations) but during these episodes I get psychotic symptoms (hearing voices and persecutory paranoia).
Is this technically mania?
Thank you for any info you can give me!
