hey Im sorry everyone ijust have an overwhelming curiousity as to how everyone else experiences bipolar . i'm so fascinated as to why we are all so different when all diagnosed with the same thing. I am biplar 1 as you all must know , and ive always questioned this to my pssychiatrist because bipolar one is usualy characterized by a depressive episode after a mania... and in an attempt to further understand myself i thought would help to ask you amazing people like me a few questions about how u experience your condition( i dont like to call it an illness) i have never experienced depression until this year but i have been diagnosed as bi polar since 2004 ! i always thought thiswas so strange !? But had a depressive episode thats been just mostly blah in most of 2008 and just been yuk... could this long lasting depresive mood be the result from ALL THE accumulative manias in the past four years in one big lump deal that have caught up to me?.. instead of dealing with depression straight after each mania? interesting if this is true... or maybe im just trying to hard to fiure this out and organize it when its just not possible. i wish i knew wat was going on !! it would really help if you guys just let me know ur deals and what youve gone through as im sure it would benifit all of us in the long run.. the more we can understand each other the more we can help and understand this because im sure thers alot to be known that isnt discovered yet about this uncharted , scary, bewildering condition !!! watever the hell is it...thanks hah
