i was just recently diagnosised with bipolar by a shrink and were give paxil to help, iv been on paxil for about a month now no change i dont see it helping any but besides that i think he may have diagnosied me wrong since the manic part were your suppositally all "happy", very very very rarly happens for me its mostly me siting there depressed hoping for a nuke to shot up my **s and destroy humanity. the manic part were the guy fail to mention if it was on or off drugs because i am very happy when on ecstasy "yea yea bad for people not for me" *off topic a bit here* but ecstasy has give me the best days of my life so for me its a miricale drug *back to topic* ok so yea he asked me if i ever had manic epsiodes were i was extremely happy and failed to mention if he ment when i was sober or on something but im guessing he ment when i was sober which i didnt think about at the time so i dont think i got diagnosised right but also i have been haven problems with interacting with people were as i have problems speaking my words usally come out in a bla or very low tone almost a wisper also i noticed that i highly social situations i get a pain in my chest, i basically keep to myself whe ever posible or stad there and nod my head in agreement when asked question usally waiting for someone else to talk before i give a short simple answer and continue silently even my girlfreind and me dont talk much because f it i dont know why im anti social but was wondering if there was any reason for me being this way or am i just an out cast, also have i been misdiagnossed with bipolar i think i just have heavy depression o yea and last night before i went to the shrink i was in the bath tub and i seen some guy climb through the bathroom window and smash my head off the bathtub wall and blacked out for a few minute my girlfriend came in after and found me lieing in the tub and they tryed to tell me that no one came in through the window but i never belived them no mater what they said. few minutes later i was put to bed by my girlfriend and i started to try to suffercate myself in my pillow because at the time i though someone was coming for me and i would have been better of dead then facing him.. this all folllowed an isident a few days before were i was jumped outside my building by about 7 or 8 guys and yes i was drinking alittle bit but i was still sober enough to help my puking friend out put him in a bath and get him cleaned up and put on the couch befrore all this happened does anyone know wha might have caused that happen?
have i been misdiagnosed with bipolar?
why am i a social outcast?
o yea and what caused the incided were i though i got my head smashed into the wall?
also im a heavy drinker so i doubt its the booze since i can down 2lt of vodka stright with out any problems and am 140lbs so booze is easy for me to handle
