I have a friend whose bi polar, and she and I get along really well. Usually. Now she is more manic then I think I've ever seen. She's gone through three jobs since the begining of the year and she's spending money left and right. She's telling me one thing and other people another. And now she's going to bars by herself becuase she's alienated everyone, and last night she almost got her ass raped because of it. I have two kids, and I am not her baby sitter, but today when I tried to tell her that that's why you need to take people that you know with you, she basically blamed me for having to go out with herself, she completly missed the point. I can never get a word in edge wise with her becuase she talks a millon miles a minute. I just...it's hard. I think that it's worse to have to watch her go through it because I feel like if I don't watch it that could be me. I could go through the exact same thing. So it makes me feel totally responsible for her. But at the same time I just want to strangle her because she's being completely self centered.......... I just don't know. Do I help her...and risk my own sainty, or do I just let her sink and pray that she doesn't do something so stupid that she gets herself killed? I am on the verge of my own manic episode, and I just...I'm lost and need some advice. Help me!! Anyone.

I'm due to see my psychiatrist on 17th Oct.I've been getting huge waves of anxiety for no reason and for me that means it's dysphoria or whatever it's called - the BP2 equivalent of mixed state, a kind of agittated depression.I've been taking small does of seroquel at night to try and knock it back but basically it's getting worse..so long...
