years ago I used to cut myself all over my arms. about a week ago I did it again. I was real stressed out for that week before I did it but I was sure surprised that I cut myself after about 5 years. im also surprised that they said I had bipolier , manic , depression. something like that? sometimes I do not sleep for days and if I don't take my colinpin my mind races. I never have felt this bad. I thought my head hurting were all from the two head injurys I had years ago. I just wanted to post this on here because I want to live but the mental and body pain is to much sometimes. right now it will give me some thing to do , god bless you all.

John,

Welcome. Bipolar is having bouts of extreme energy, racing thoughts, being restless followed by bouts of extreme depression. The highs and lows are certainly extreme on a person with this illness.

Have you googled your illness? A support or peer group in your area? It helps to discuss what you feel with others who understand.

I wonder if the urge to self harm is a biproduct of your illness coming to the forefront, so to speak?

God Bless you as well.
