Quite obviously bipolar

So. I am back. Starting my new meds today. Aripripazole. Have been taking citalopram for over a year I think. It was sort of helpful against depression but obviously not against hypomania. Starting to come down from the high and feeling exhausted and like a total ###$ up. I'm ruining my life.
I'm someone who gets hypersexual and who is prone to falling in love with people easily. But I am also married with special ...

For a few months earlier this year I was convinced that I was pregnant even though I did several pregnancy tests including blood tests. Even though the odds of me being pregnant was incredibly small considering contraceptives and time of 'conception' in relation to my cycle, I was still terrified that I might be pregnant. This was during a time that I skipped my period for a few months which is not uncommon with ...

Oxytocin hormone

I was just reading about a new research that people with high sex drive/addiction often overproduce oxytocin hormone as a response to fear and anxiety. (any kind of trauma?)
And that anti-psychotics, quetiapine, regulates this oxytocin production.

It does sound like certain anti-psychotics can be used to treat a variety of things. So a response to treatment doesn't necessarily equal a specific diagnosis.

I need company -- I'm lonely at home and depressed all the

I'm lonely, bored and depressed all the time these days. When I go places with a friend I am okay, or if a friend comes to see me, I'm okay. I don't know any bipolar people locally, and none of my friends know that I have this disorder. I have nobody to call for support. My therapist has been out of town for weeks. He's coming back next week and I will try to get ...

How can you tell if it's hypomania or happiness (bipolar II)

disclosure: my therapist thinks i have bipolar II. not looking for a diagnosis as I'm already talking to a professional but I would like to know your experiences (could be mania or hypomania).

So for the past few years I've had bipolar II as this diagnosis lingering over my head but I feel like I don't identify with a lot of other people's experiences. I don't ...

bipolar and ptsd/anxiety disorder

So I was recognised with above conditions and I wonder if there's anyone else here who shares that mixture of disorders and if yes how does it show up in you.
I just feel very confused about everything right now.

Medication & Weight Gain

Hi there,

As somebody with the crippling fear of gaining weight, I have heard lots of stories of people on various medications (Zyprexa, Seroquel, Abilify etc.) that claim they have packed on the pounds from these. Is there a particular science behind this? Is there any way to avoid this? As someone who plans on going on medication soon I am quite worried about this.

Thank you.
