I am newly diagnosed BP. I've seculed myself to the house since May. I used to go out clubbing and socializing a lot especially when on the "high". Since I stopped using street drugs and drinking, I have become withdrawn. The main reason being I never know which persona is going to emerge. Being BP is a lot like split personalities. One day I can be on top of world capable of doing anything and being anything. The next day I can be at absolute rock bottom. I have some friends who want me to go out with them tonight and have a weekend of it. The thing is I am on an "up swing". During "up swings" and "down swings" I am easily irritated and annoyed. Should I go or should I remain secluded?

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...
