no hope for me

I don't know why I even bother hoping anymore.

Around 12 hours ago I replied to a post about starting the New Year with a clean slate. I was so excited at the idea of starting anew.

Now I'm back in this horrible depression again and I don't even want to face the new year. I HATE this!!

I'm never going to be able to start anew. Not with the fucking bipolar always messing with my head. So what's the point? Why should I go on? I'm only 34. I cannot face the prospect of living another 40 or 50 years this way.

The meds don't work. The therapy doesn't work. Nothing works.

It's barely New Year's Eve. But I started drinking about an hour ago. I'm going to get so drunk. I deserve to not feel this crap for a while. The part of me that's self-destructive is whispering in my ear to mix my pills with the alcohol. What scares me is that it's starting to sound like a very good idea.

I honestly can't say what I'll do. I don't want to die, but I can't continue like this.

If these feelings don't subside, it's not a question of whether I'll act or not. It's only a question of when. And of what form it will take.

Sorry you're having such a hard time. I am also bipolar amoungst other things and have some understanding what you are going through. It is a very tough disorder to live with. As you know bipolar disorder is pretty much a life-long disorder, however, things can and usually do improve. As disruptive as bipolar disorder is, it is one of the most successfully treated disorders. I am sorry your medications aren't working for you. Maybe new medications would help. I have been on different medications over time and sometimes it takes awhile to find meds that work. Medications have helped me some, but that is not the most successful treatment. Over time I have learned how to manage my bipolar much better. It takes awhile and can be very frustrating. I am managing much better than I used to and can live well with it. I am telling you about my own situation only to tell you that things do get better over time.

I absolutely hate New Years and it can be the worst time possible to reflect on the state of your life. If you feel the same about the holiday as I do, the holiday itself causes depression. At least it does for me. Things may look a little better once the holiday is behind you.

I feel for you and the problems bipolar causes. I am not saying you will most likely overcome the bipolar just to make you feel better. It really is true.

I wish you the best and feel free to pm me if you wish.

Take care
