I was first diagnosed with a mood disorder almost a year ago but then i stopped taking my meds and become full of energy, confidence,risky behavior, irritability, anger and i couldn't sleep or concentrate and that was this past November. Due to me not taking my meds regularly that's how they discovered that i have bipolar 2 and sometimes i want that high feeling back so i have this desire to just stop taking my meds.. am i the only one who feels this way? On top of that i'm confused... i can't tell what's a regular mood swing and what's an episode as weird as that sounds. Do people with bipolar disorder have triggers because sometimes when i'm stressed i throw books across the room, i become irritated like there's no tomorrow and even want to punch a wall. I guess i'm confused about who i am and what's real.View Thread
2 weeks ago i was really stressed and i ended up throwing a book across the room, was really irritable and wanted to punch a wall. This girl right here doesn't do that i mean during high school two years ago i punched a wall and that was before my meds and being diagnosed. It's hard to tell what's normal and what's not.View Thread
