all ways been a depressive for years, so far that i can't remember a time i wasn't, and i all ways had what i thought were just good days and bad days.

but a few months ago our company hired a new manager and today she took me to one side and asked if i was bipolar as she has noticed my mood swings are quite extreme, in her words when i am up then i am on the ball, working hard and quick, i tend to talk quicker and come up with all sorts of ideas and plans but then i crash and i'm down for a few days, getting frustrated and showing it quite badly, so much so that i can keep someone away with just a look.

so anyway, looking back i found she was right and with my down time my thoughts of suicide were stronger and more profound and after some research i have to agree that although i am my forties i may be bipolar rather than just depressed.

so i have got an appt to see my GP monday morning and see what happens.

was a good visit, for once the doctor listened and gave the help i need.
have been put on Prozac and been refered to the mental health team for assessment regarding Bipolar, so i feel a bit better now action has been taken.

will see what happens now

i feel a bit nervous about it but i know its for the best, fingers crossed !

Best of luck to you. Maybe jot down some notes, so you don't leave out anything you wanted to tell them, when we are nervous we tend to forget things here and there that we had to say, then on the way home find ourselves thinking "Man I forgot to tell him...".

You're in my thoughts! :)
