Recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the meds are still experimental, trying to determine what will help me. The depression episodes are the hardest and last the longest and sometimes it is so hard to pull myself out of them. My husband and I fight all of the time, because he says how hard it is for him and the kids to walk on eggshells around me, because I'm not the woman he married anymore. I spend the majority of my time feeling worthless and alone and I don't want to feel like this anymore. My psychiatrist says it takes time for the medication to work, but I don't think my husband will wait much longer. I feel so incredibly alone that I don't know how much longer I can wait to feel better.I hate it! I hate it! I hate it! I hate feeling out of control, angry, sad, worthless, like I just want to disappear! What do I do?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
