I've suffered from chronic depression since adolescence, and for a while I was on antidepressants. Lately, I've been having an increasingly hard time controlling my mood though, and I've been irritable and cranky and even feeling some pretty intense rage. I've been doing a lot of reading, and I think that I might not just be depressed -- I might be bipolar.

But where do I go from here? Do I call a regular doctor? A psychiatrist? I'm tired of being depressed and irritable and never feeling in control of myself. I've got to get some kind of help so I can be the mama my DS deserves.

Thanks to both of you.


I did some calling and found a local mental health clinic that charges on a sliding scale, so I think that's where I'm going to start. It's weird to finally admit that I need real help and I'm more than just "down" or "lazy" or whatever else. I'm hoping everything goes well from here though.
