    The Nightmare of Bipolar

     
    I suffered from depression my whole life, although I didn't realize it until I was an adult and recognized the systems. In my early 30's, my illness developed into bipolar.
    I hate the severe mood swings. I can't concentrate and every aspect of my life has been affected. Within 15 years, I had lost my wife, family, job, career, all friends, and most will to live. The meds don't seem to work but lithium is a necessity. One day at a time.
