hi im sophie and im 19 years old and i was just diagnosed with bipolar disorder. This surprised me because all I thought i knew about it was that to be bipolar meant to be really happy and really sad. I am really anxious and really sad at different times. I never seem to get really happy. the scary thing about what im feeling is the complete disconnect i get from everything around me, from reality. I was wondering if any of you feel that too. Its such a scary and overwhelming feeling for me. My doctor prescribed me risperdal and my "delusions" or disconnect went away for a little bit but now they are coming back. I feel very very alone and confused. I want to feel hope I want to know that this scary disconnect and thoughts and feelings can be treated. Please someone help me. have i been miss diagnosed? is this normal?
