Re: Am i?

It may take you a while longer than two weeks to get the meth out of your system. Until then it is just impossible to separate behavior that is caused by an illegal chemical and those produced by the brain of someone with bipolar disorder.

You keep working hard at clearing out the meth and with getting a good nutritional balance in your body with your food intake before looking at things like Bipolar disorder, ok? It'll be alot more clear if you do have it then.

May I ask how old you are and when you first noticed the highs & lows?
Please keep working hard on staying clean! You should really be patting yourself on the back every single night when you go to sleep. You're doing a really hard thing and you are also one smart cookie for looking us up here!!!
Whether or not you are bipolar would you come back here and let us know how you're doing??

Re: Am i?

Are you sure that the highs aren't a result of the meth? Methamphetamine is a stimulant that is designed to make a person feel great, and the effects may resemble hypomania. If you're still having the mood swings once your system is clean, then you might indeed be bipolar, but right now, I'm thinking that it could be a result of the drug. Congrats on being sober for two weeks! That's a great start! Good luck and God bless!

Re: Am i?

I must confess, I'm anorexic as well. But I never used meth. Just always a caffiene and Nicotine freak. My honest opinion. These symtoms that you are describing sound awfully like withdrawal. And it is most definetley from the meth. Depending on how long you've been on it it could take anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks for it to get out of your system completely. And no matter how many trancs you take or antipsychotics (such as Geodon) wont solve it. Its just gotta work its way through. And I've been through withdrawal before, had to go to the ER twice. So to be honest with you, its going to be tough. But once you get through it you will realize how strong you really are. Not everyone can get through what you are going through and survive. So I give you snaps for reaching out. I was on geodon before and it didn't do much for me at all. I still always had anger and anxiety. What I had to end up taking was Adivant. Maybe you can even suggest Klonopin until the junk is out of your system. During this time keep track of whats going through your head, maybe keep a mood chart, you can find them online. Just type "mood chart" into a search engine. I'm out of highschool now, I got into fights, I hated EVERYONE. And still do sometimes. My violence is under control now, but not everything. Then again, I was never on meth so I dont know. If you want, I can ask my PDoc about it when I see him on Friday and ask about it andget back to you. I really wanna help.
