I don't know where to start. I am a little nervous. Please bare with me. I have been told I'm going through rapid cycling but my Doc won't commit to giving me a dx: of bipolar. She tells me I fall under an umbrella. Nice uh? I am on Lamictal,Topamax,Abilify,Zoloft Klonipin but I am looking at lithium next if I don't come out of this manic episode. This isn't my first episode, I have had many over the years and have been at this clinic for years and nobody seems to be able to dx: me. I just went through my depressive episode bordering psychotic. ( I'm a cutter) Amoung other disorders. I am crawling out of my skin, racing and racing,insomnia,lack of appetite, aggitated but feeling speedy and good at the same time.Actually I'm feeling I can do almost anything. Here I go again,and the prospect of lithium scares me. I guess I babbled enough, any input would be helpful. Oh, I am already looking into a second opinion. Thanks.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
