    had to post this... because it's really getting to me!

    Ii hate being up, then down, then up, then down... then up again!. i just feel like i'm riding a rollercoaster- it's so draining for me!

    not to mention the people around me... they have absolutely no control over what i say- and i hurt them so much!

    i thought i was doing really well yesterday, but it turned out i was lying to myself.. and the good feelings never lasted long

    just fed up of it

    yeah, i'm bipolar too. i struggle with mood swings. some days are okay and some days i just can't get out of bed. they switched my meds around last year and that helped, plus i see a therapist and she's really good. she gives me great coping strategies. are you seeing anyone?

    Hang on to the good feelings. That's one of the things that keep me going. I know the good feelings will come again.

    I hope you feel better.

    I empathise with you , I also suffer with bipolar disorder and have 7 month depressions with agoraphobia then things change into mania and I act unpredictably for weeks before finally levelling out. I used to enjoy the mania but now I dread them as I know I will act in ways which embarrass me and be unaware until I look back..it's hell, wish I could offer you more positive support but you are not alone
