I think I was in denial...

Well, I have done a lot of thinking and a lot of convening with a friend of mine who is also afflicted with Bipolar Disorder, and she thinks I am about as accurate a depiction of Bipolar Disorder as it gets. I think I may agree with her.

Here's where the problem was before. I, like Bipolars often are, was in denial about having it. This prevented me from seeing some things. I wanted to ...

New Here

I think I'm new here. I can't even remember anymore. I was diagnosed Bipolar Rapid Cycler back in February at 45 years old. I've had a hard time accepting it. The PDocs have had a hard time controlling it. Sometimes I even feel like she's mad at me because of all the different meds she's tried, nothing seems to work. She wanted me off of the Klenopin because it's so addictive, but it's the only ...

I’m 17 years old and I had my first and only manic episode in mid-January when I was diagnosed with bipolar. I did not (and do not) feel like anything was (or is) wrong with me. I still don’t think I have any type of bipolar. I don’t feel depressed and I don’t have bipolar-like mood swings. But I am told there is a form of bipolar where the person doesn’t go through depression, just ...

How to get a suspected bipolar disorder mother for help?

I'm a medical student who is confident to say that there's 80% chance my mother has bipolar disorder. I was searching online for the diagnostic criteria and realized there'r forum like this which probably can give me a bit of insights. It's always hard for an insider to deal the situation eventhough a medical student should know enough from the book.

Hi I'm on 40mg per day of citalopram. I have been using the brand name cipramil since my diagnosis in 2001. This is the second time I have been given another 'brand' by the chemist and both times I have suffered anxiety and panic attacks and am unable to sleep. I am exhausted and tearful and have withdrawn. Has anyone else experienced differences after taken the same drug branded differently.

Hi! My introduction as a Rapid Cycling Bipolar 1 Mom of 3.

Phew, thats a mouthful! Anyway, I've been catching up on the posts, but wanted to take a minute and introduce myself.

My name is Heather. As stated before, I'm a VERY rapid cycling Bipolar 1. I actually was diagnosed last week inpatient after a very scary low. I had known for a while that I was bipolar thanks to my counselor, but because of the SEVERE shortage of psychiatrists here, I had a 9 week ...
