My Dr. diagnosed me as Bipolar. He prescribd me Seroquel but, I am petrified to take it. I'm not so sure I am Bipolar. I know I have been depressed at times. Manic? Was there a specific event that convienced you, you really are Bipolar? Maybe I am in denial? I feel very confused about the manic part. I am a very neat person, Effexor & Wellbutrin have caused me insomnia, I can be very irritable and I impulse shop (nothing sever that I'm over my head in debt) my appetite ranges from non-existant to ravenous (not over or under weight). I'm on Lamictal 150 mg. and Ambien to sleep. I wonder how much is side effects from meds. What happens if you are treated but aren't really Bipolar? Right now I feel confused. My memory is a current issue. I'm forgetful and the words I search for do not come to me easily. I was not always like this. A symptom or a side effect of meds? I really don't know what to think.

I've been pretty stable the last few months. I haven't had a depressive episode in months and no hypomania. My meds really seem to be working. I was substitute teacher last school year but I recently found a part time job as a paraprofessional and I am happy with a set schedule. I'm doing so well and I hope it continues. My kids see a huge change in me and are proud of how well I am doing.
