I was diagnosed with being bipolar and it drives me up the wall. I am always feeling mentally overwhelmed, angry, emotional, depressed, worthless, sad and like i'm a nobody and no one cares about me. I have social anxiety and always stay in the house for fear that everyone is watching me and judging me. I often snap at my daughter who is 14 years old and afterward i feel sad. I believe this disorder is hereditary and i believe my daughter has it because i notice signs in her. I don't like talking to psychiatrists because i feel they have not experienced being bipolar and couldn't possibly understand exactly how i'm feeling. Besides medication, does anyone find that talking to others that are bipolar helps? Is there anyone not taking medication and has found natural antidotes?
