The first of June I quit smoking after doing so for 41 years. I am diagnosed as rapidcycling bipolar with schizophrenic tendencies and recieved that Dx in 1992. I took a gambit of drugs-most of which didn't work for very long and quit taking anything in 1995. I felt like I was doing really well with my mood swings and then I quit smoking. Now I cycle sometimes every 20 minutes and go from ecstatically happy to crying like a baby. Can anyone tell me why this is? I know I may need to be checked again, but there is the rub---my VA hospital annex won't see me for 3 months unless I am in crisis--suicidal or homicidal which I am not either.
