I'm an unmedicated bipolar college student (trust me It sucks)

well I was diagnosed a couple of years ago. and I haven't been on medication since the summer before last. I have no insurance and (because Im in the smallest town on earth) no doctor. I have horrible insomnia. last night I went to sleep at 1:30 in the morning to wake up at 8:30 for a class at 9:30 I wake up at 3:00 in the morning and don't fall asleep till 6:30 and wake up too late to go to class. I have no absences left in this class. I will be kicked out. I have already dropped a class and am hanging by a string of thread in my next class. I believe that my bipolar self has a major roll in why Im doing so horrible in school. medication (without taking myself to the psychiatric hospital) is not available for quite some time. I want to tell these teachers what is going on but I don't want it to sound like some weird excuse so that I can do what I want. someone please help me. I need to know somewhere that I can find medication. I heed help.
