I am new to this group and Daily Strength. I was diagnosed with Bipolar this spring and have been on a medication treatment plan and soon starting therapy. I began searching for a online support group because I feel really alone in this more so in the sense of having someone to talk to that understands because they are going through it too. It has been hard having all these thoughts and emotions around discovering what my diagnosis is and beginning to have moments in the past making more sense now understanding that I have bipolar. I am seeking therapy soon for understanding but, also because currently what I am going through is I have spent 4 years of my marriage with bipolar and destroying our relationship. I am lucky to be diagnosed and have a chance to fix it. What I had done while I was sick is heavy on my heart and it is hard to not only realize that but, trying to fix it all I have a fear constantly of having a episode before things can heal more and it feeling like to my husband that nothing is going to change or get better and losing it all. I think having others to talk to who are also going through bipolar journeys will really help and I hope as I get farther in this journey I get to be a help to others as well.
Body feels like I am getting attacked most nights, can anyone relate?
My neighbors down stairs were screaming at each other. It sounded like domestic volunteers so my sister called the cops. There was a lot more yelling and the sound of things being thrown or broken.
