well i went to the drs today because for the past couple of months i have been struggling really bad with thoughts and feelings that i have... and today he diagnosed me with bipolar 2... just ups and downs. he currently put me on some anti-depressants, but honstly - im kinda scared... and would like to chat with others who are bipolar as well, and find out more... how do you deal with the ups and downs? for me, its like one minute i'm alright, the next, i'm extreamly sad - almost in tears, then i can be angry... this has really effected my work ethic. and I'm just trying to figure things out... any thoughts - input would be nice...

Have any of you tried or are on Protonix (pantoprazole )? It's used for GERD (acid reflux). I've just gone on it and my mood has completely dived - depressed and anxious.It could be the weather - we've gone from summer to autumn here in the UK - temps dropped 20F or more.Just trying to work out what's caused the current blip.
I've experienced this several times in the recent past and I can remember experiencing it for as long as I can remember, off and on. It seems to have gotten more frequent and/or more disturbing. But does anyone else experience yelling or screaming when they're in the shower? Its accompanied by this urgent feeling, like fear, but also a numbness, like I know it isnt real so theres no need to react...
