I understand how you feel and I wonder the sae thing sometimes. Even at my best times with plenty of support and medications I can still have moments when I have breakthroughs of intense mood swings along with panic attacks that cause suicidal thoughts. We are very complicated beings and one of my main interests in life is understanding bipolar and the huma...

I understand your frustration. It is likely that you have a mood disorder, maybe even bipolar. You have tried CBT and anti-depresants and that is a good start but don't feel like you have done everything. Healing in this situaion takes time and often different medications that can help.

I am sorry you are going through this. You seem like one of the ones that understand your illness well and are a good advocate for what you need and when you need it.

Ignorance of her illness is going to make a relationship with her very difficult. We are human too we just have an illness and if those who are in our lives are supportive and understanding w...

Welcome to the forum. Please do not beat yourself up. That is the type of sabotage thinking that can lead yo further into depression. Can you tell me more about what is going on?

Of course you can disagree with her. You have to advocate for yourself. I do think that the OT would be good for you but it is not enough. I went through this a few years back after I was diagnosed. Depending on your mood at the time when you visit these "professionals" you may be diagnosed with many different things. Bipolar can present itself...
