how do i re-build?

my lifes gone from bad to worse and its most likely because ive been on a downer for almost two weeks and i have a nasty low self esteem view of my life. i actually want out at this moment i dont want to be here anymore if this is the crap i have to deal with for the rest of my life. how do i rebuild myself from this low point of my life how do stand back up and fight for the life i want? i need help asap! people have said that bipolar isnt that bad but its doing a real number on me right now feeling this low that i dnt even want to eat or see or speak to anyone im shut up in ma room for best part of the day every day while i watch all the bad things happen that i should be dealing with i should be stopping them and fixing them but i just dont i just watch any help will be great! as soon as you can please i need to understand this before i make any more rash decisions.

Hi there...

I think we all can agree with what ur saying here. Sometimes I feel like I'm just passing time and nothing really has meaning, I look back and the times Ive cried have been more than Ive smiled. You are strong dont forget that and I know most depressed people view themselvesas weak but we are strong enough to deal with the mood swings that control our lives and we still fight to seek happiness. I hope u r seeing ur counsellor because talking about it helps it really does. Also u can try writing ur feelings and plz cry if u have to. As the time goes by u will find that though u r not cured u can at least cope with the sadness when it comes by finding HEALTHY outlets for pain. Do u have friends and family u can speak to?

I look forward to getting updates from u.

If you haven't already, you need to seek professional help (Psychiatrist, preferably) and get on medication that will treat your illness and make your mood swings less severe and bring you closer to 'normal'.   Depression is always more severe for those who experience mania. Thats why you need to get these swings under control.  
There are very effective treatments for bipolar illness, but you HAVE to stick with them, like it or not.   You can conquer this and make up your mind to do so.  It's very treatable and things can and will get better.  Best of luck to you.
