I was dx'ed 4 yrs ago with bi-polar I've been doing good until the last yr, got into relationship that has turned full of anger ( mostly me ), I feel my bi=polar going off more. Here's my problem tho I have noticed a lot of changes and non are good. I have been cold, non careing, no empathy, no remorse, procastinating, no direction,I am 41 and I have nothing, nothing to show for anything, no career nothing!!!! My Dr wants me to evaluated for ADD, I do not retain anything, I feel as though I am just floating through life with no purpose..

HELP!!!! I hate how I feel and I don't like who I am anymore

Hello Mommie, so very nice to meet you. First off, let me apologize for taking so long to reply to your post. The board is very slow on the weekends.

Have you talked to your pdoc about changing or adding some meds? Im wondering if maybe you are having hormone fluctuations that may be causing these moods. Im going through peri menopause and my moods are up and down like Im on a roller coaster.

I know that you say you dont like who you are anymore but I am sure you have some very good qualities and Im sure that many ppl like you. Ive felt like you have on many occasions but the ppl on this board and the wonderful ppl in my life always seem to change how I feel about myself.

Also, you DO have a purpose. Everyone has a purpose. Right now your just having a difficult time but things will get better.

hugs to you
I HATE being Bipolar. Its AWESOME!!!!

Hi Mommie and welcome. I think Cookie said everything best. I just wanted you to know that there are caring and understanding people on this board and please write back and let us know how you are doing.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
