Maybe you should go get checked out. There are forms of euphoria with bipolar disorder. You should go and get that seen to as if you let these things slide it gets harder to cope with.

I dunno, it's mild enought and it hasn't hindered my life much so far.

I wouldn't want to take meds or anything. I did one and it was awful, felt like a zombie.

I hear you I myself with my head injury was told to go on meds and I refused as like you I might be a zombie headcase to speak of but I do feel sometimes GP go over kill on the Med hand I worked in medical records in a hospital and the amount of doctors who just would give out drugs and think that the problem would be ok with the drugs they were giving the people.

How come all these new conditions come with a "HEY LOOK AT ME", clause?

As someone who has major issues with acute anxiety, I find this sentiment very ignorant and ill judged. Bi-polar is a recognised mental health condition - my sister and former partner are bi-polar and let me assure you it's no picnic.

Unless you have suffered mental health difficulties, you can't really understand. The phrase "walk in my shoes" comes to mind.

Eh... Bipolar is hardly new! And very much real, people have killed themselves over it!

Your statement makes as much sense as denying diabetes exists. Just because a condition is mental rather than physical doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

What an extremely ignorant thing to say. Hope none of your family members are diagnosed with it.

I got a Bipolar 1 diagnoses a couple of months ago which devastated me. I looked for second opinions but they all came back the same.
I'm more ashamed about it and how difficult I find everything.
People here posting about their experiences are very brave.

It takes a top expert psychiatrist to give a diagnosis and theres so much trial and error involved in taking the right path to recovery.
It takes many years to get a correct diagnosis as Bipolar masks and laps over other mental health issues. Nobody goes around giving a bipolar diagnosis willy nilly. Prob 20 years average to get one.

I think I'll have a cup of tea now and calm down!

I hope you know at some level that there is no need to feel any shame about having a few chemicals in your brain out of whack, whatever you might hear from some ignorant tools. No need for shame about something like diabetes, none for this.

No need to feel ashamed Pow Pow. Gaire is an outlet for you to discuss and get advice on this. Superfour's comments don't help in the slightest.

Apparently they wrote a whole Wikipedia article on this made-up, attention seeking fake mental illness.

I was talking to my sister about bi-polar a while back and it's possible that our late mother may have had the condition. It would explain some aspects about her occasional mood swings. But this was back in the 1980s when there was little or no proper understanding of the condition.

Bi-polar is very much a real mental health issue.

I don't, not really, doesn't mean it should go unchallenged.
