    over the last 25 years, I have been severely depressed. I would say 80 percent of the time...now, I feel better, so the docs are telling me I am bipolar.

    I went to bed 6 weeks ago with suicidal thoughts and woke up 2 days later, light and happy.
    My mind is clearer, I am more productive and life is better.
    I am still very logical and not at all hyper in anway.

    What do you think? If people do not have answers to this, how do I c ontact a specialist?

    I think it would be wise to seek out a really good Psychiatrist who will do a thorough evaluation.
    No sense in wasting more years/time with meds that don't cover/fix all of your symptoms - - maybe a mood stabilizer will work a lot better.

    Take care!
