OK, I have been recently diagnosed with bipolar and am trying to figure out what I need to do. The fact that I have enough energy to look up and write on the web is a start. I am 27, I teach preschool. My kids are 6, 3 and 2 years old. My husband and I have been together for 5 years married for 2. I am on wellbutrin and a sleeping pill (I will stay up all night w/out it) The doctor prescribed lamictal but I have not started to take it yet. I need to know how to find a doctor I can trus. (how can this dr. diagnose me if he only talked to me for 5 min.) and is meds the only answer or is there more I can do. If things continue the way they are I will be divorced and my kids will hate me. I have already lost all my friends and my family (including parents). I have no concentration. the voices in my head are loud and annoyong. I start 10 tasks and finish none. I spend my entire day trying very hard to control my emotions but then I end up with no real relationships because all my focus is on either calming my self down (anger or hyperness) or lifting myself up. I go from a clean organized lovely house to I can't get out of bed and the laundry and dishes are pouring out of the doors and windows. This is my first attempt to try and research this. CAn anyone relate???? How do I get started? Will things ever be better??? or should I go ahead and get the divorce now instead of wasting my husbands time? Please give me advise. personal stories, websites, etc...

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
