I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 3 weeks ago and I'm worried. I don't want this disease, but my father was also diagnosed several years ago. My first question is would it be wrong to have more children? I mean I may have more children anyways, I already have a 3yr old, but I would like your opinions. Second, is it normal to have anger towards little things, like the girl in the room with me popping her gum nonstop. It's like certain things can just set me off and it gets worse because I hold it in. I am 26, married, on Lamictal and I see a counselor weekly. I am completely new to this so if you have any information to share, please do. Thanks for your advice!

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