Im posting this here instead of in the medication section - I hope Im doing right. Anyways..I will try and keep this short. I was diagnosed with bipolar when I was 13 after a stint of depression. I started medications and it wasnt long after that I ended up in the psych ward for attempted suicide. I got out of there quickly, had a med change to the best of my memory, and not to long later I started to self harm (started by a wrist cut..leg cuts..ect).. I ended up in psych again.. Well when I moved out at the age of 17 I stopped medications and spent over two years in bliss (after the short few days of withdrawl)..Well I was forced back on the meds when I was 19 and lifes been total hell since..I didnt take my meds until late yesterday and was happy all day and as soon as I took them I went down again. I havent had them yet today and am feeling good again. Could the meds be causing my downfalls? I dont think I will take them anymore.
