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?

This is a general message I am posting to all of the groups I belong to:I just thought back to when I first found DS soon after it first began and what a different life I had then. It is much better now, mainly because I have my own apartment as opposed to living in an old travel trailer in somebody's driveway. But even that could have been much worse than it was. I have been here now since...
