Well, just a few days ago at my doctor's visit I was diagnosed with another mental illness, bipolar disorder. I also have ADHD and anxiety/ depression. At this point I feel just all messed up, this is too much. I feel like a mistake.. but anyway does anyone else here also suffer from bipolar as well and does it affect your md in any extra way?

I have severe Bipolar Disorder Type I. It greatly effects my MD. When I crash into a depression my MD spirals out of control. When I'm happier I don't daydream as much or I have a harder time when I might want to when I'm bored or can't sleep. Basically the sadder I am the more I daydream. I also have anxiety which effects it as well. But the anxiety usually makes my mind wander off onto different tangents when I have thoughts about everyday things. Mental illness greatly effects MD.

And as for whether it affects my MD? Well let me say something every single song I've listened to in my life brings back some kind of memory so sometimes songs will make me burst into tears even though real life won't. Lyrics can also trigger unwanted feelings. I think it's because this disorder is a dissociate one. Sometimes you'll be great at repressing memories and holding back feelings, sometimes they pour out out. I don't know if I'm bipolar since I've never been checked by a psychologist but I've been at both extremes. I suffer from anxiety but I wouldn't say I'm depressed. But I do have suicidal thoughts sometimes.

I wonder how many of us actually do have bipolar. I remember just a few hours ago, I was happy. But sometimes I'll just remember the past and I'll have suicidal thoughts but at the same time I'm not a very expressive person so sometimes you'll think everything's alright but my thoughts say something else.
