I was diagnosed bipolar over a year ago. My question is do you all who are bipolar have a bad temper when you get ticked off? My sons pdoc wrote the wrong amount of meds down today for him which means I have to go back downtown to get another script (I have to have a new written script every 30 days for this med) for him IF they will issue one. I called this afternoon, doc was out sick so I never got a call back. Anyway my point is I got beyond angry about that when it was MY FAULT in the first place for not checking the script. I threw the phone and ds and I got into a shouting match and I called the doctor any number of names I was SO MAD. The only person I have to be mad about this is me for not checking the script in the first place when we were in the docs office and I feel like an idiot for going off so bad. Yes, I'm taking my meds but IMO that doesn't mean I'll never have another outburst. I've always, always had a temper on me (quick to anger) but just was diagnosed bipolar last year and on meds I seem to be a lot better with my mood swings so everyone says (family I mean). Right now I just feel terrible for going off like I did. Does anyone else have a temper/anger issue when they get ticked off or am I alone in this?

What would YOU do if you won the lottery? If I won I would find a program or place that treats the WHOLE body, not just with chemicals or talk therapy, to find a mental health regimen that would FINALLY work for me. I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
