Moorefield,

Do you have bipolar or major depressive? They are quite different. Have you been seen by a psychiattrist and been officially diagnosised and placed on medication? If you are barely functionin gmy heart goes out to you-I know that feeling all too well. I encourage you to get some help because with the newer medications your life can be so different in a very short period of time. You can look back and say this was all a nightmare. But we are here for you and if you want to open up and post we will get back to you Promise....... Hugs, Carol

Hi Justin. Talk it out - we will help you as much as we can. It's harder without a firm diagnosis, because they are very different illnesses. As Carol said, there are medications which can make a massive difference, so the sooner you can get a diagnosis, the better. It might take some fighting to find a good pdoc, but so important. Keep posting, k? Carls

Hi Justin and welcome. This group is filled with many supportive members and i'm very grateful i've joined. I used to suffer a lot of "lows" but from coming online daily, i no longer have as many, this place gives me that "lift" and i no longer feel alone.

Feel free to private message (pm) me or any group leader if you just want to chat or have any questions or concerns.

Welcome Justin. I understand the feeling of being so low with bipolar depression. It is hard to bear. The good news is that medications can really help alleviate that. If you are are currently on meds, it sounds like you need an adjustment. If you are not, then I really encourage you to begin treatment. If it were not for meds, I would either be suicidal or manic. Please take part in discussions here. You'll find a lot of caring people who will talk to you.

Welcome Justin. A firm diagnosis is really important to your recovery. Medications are the most important tool in fighting bipolar disorder. Social rythym therapy, counseling, exercise and a healthy lifestyle help too.

Please continue to reach out to us and we will do our best to help you. Take care.

Hello Justin, Welcome to DS! I'm sorry you rarely enjoy life. I used to be that way before medications. Do you take any? We must have them to become stable.
