Bipolar??

I have had mental issues my whole life.  My Dr. started prescribing me atidepressants & Ativan about 13 yrs ago.  Over the yrs. I've been on & off many atidepressants, went to several Phyciatrists & the dose of the Ativan ended up @ 1mg 3 x day.  The outcome has been I had 3 suicide attempts & ended up in a mental inpatient for a wk.  At this point I'm off the Ativan (thank God) and on an antidepressent.  I've beed diagnosed w/ depression, anxiety & bpd.  I just came out of a mania & have never been dx w/ bipolar & about ready to quit my job again.  Please give me some helpful advise.  Thanks.

Sounds like you definitely should be screened for bipolar. Be adamant about it. My psych has told me that it is dangerous and futile for a person with bp to take an antidepressant.
