Is anyone going through Menopause and also have Bi-polar?

I'm intrigued about being in Menopause and having Bi-polar.  Symptoms of the disorder and medications I take are similar for me, as what would also be Menopause symptoms.  Maybe this is why I feel like I'm not having Menopausal symptoms.  Do, I'm curious of your experience if you are going through Menopause and also have Bi-polar.  I would appreciate feedback and hearing others' stories.

You know, that could be.  Are you volatile at all?  I feel like I can be very reactionary and volatile at times.  Sigh.  And I think that is also a pattern with bipolar.  I would imagine there is crossover!  Is your Bi polar well controlled?  Do you take medication for it?  I also have very up and down moods.  Bouts of anxiety, bouts of sadness, hormones that shift quickly and almost like they 'cycle' like the situation with bipolar.  It's a lot to deal with at times, right?
