Comment from: LoLo, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: December 20

I suffer from many disorders like being manic, depressed, hyper, angry, crying, and suicidal. I have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and seizures, and I have suffered from these bipolar disorders for many years. But I am being treated now with proper medications that seem to be helping.

Ii was diagnosed 5 years ago as being bipolar. I have never stopped taking my meds. I go to work every day. Never stop taking your meds. Always go for counseling, and get help whenever and wherever you can. My symptoms are pretty classic for the most part. I can't sleep at all or sleep for 12 hours a day. I'm restless. I can't be still at all. I can't concentrate. I spend excessively and I always have racing thoughts. I'm always stressed. My wish is just to be “quiet” for one day.

My name is Amanda, and I have bipolar depression. I have been on medication since July 2006, I could never sit still and I was either always crying or just plain out moody and rude to people. I always had things going through my mind and could not concentrate. I've had my meds changed once since then and I like the new meds they put me on, which I am still taking.
