Unhappy why do i do it ?

i dont drink on a regular basis only now and again when i go out with my hubby have a few pints of wine and soda and then home staying very sociable dont argue just merry
then when i get out with my friend i hit the stuff reall bad
i end up in situations that place me in a panic
i then end up doing stupid things and then regreting them after wards
i always end up on my own and lost

panic stricken and wanting to end it all because i am ashamed of what i have done truly do not know why i do this
i start out on the eveing on a high laughing joking and having fun
then within a couple of hrs i am suicidal and end up that way for days and usualy end up in the hospital because i have attempted to end it

this also happend this weekend and i have a doc's appointment next monday
as the doc i saw in hospital thinks i may be biopola as this has been happing all my life

top of the world one second suicidal th next
big drop from the high BANG straight to the low

anyone can tell me is this normal thing for what
i may be diagnosed with
thanxs everyone in advance

Re: why do i do it ?


yep, sounds like me too. I am a BP1 rapid cycling and I have used alcohol and drugs to self medicate for years - even on the medication I've been given. I recall the crest of the wave before crashing on the beach, which of course will be exaggerated by alcohol which is a mood altering drug - makes you happy but too much makes you depressed.

There is a strong link between BP and unhealthy relationships with mood altering drugs. It's good news you're going to see the doctor.

Good luck and welcome - you will regain your life and your self respect.

Re: why do i do it ?

Hmmm. Sounds like me. Do you ever just start running for no reason? I wake up with bruises and torn clothes with blood on them. I tried to start fights with men (Im a tiny 5 foot woman)! My Ex boyfriend who I was with 8 years ago (this is how long I've been doing this for) said "why do you always do it when you're not with me?" I couldn't answer this. It still happens the same when I get "carried away" only now my husband has seen it and it scares him. I'm still awaiting diagnosis and it seems like bipolar. Ill let you know. Good luck in lfe always.

Re: why do i do it ?

do you mean when you're drunk or sober? I get really into sport when I'm manic and get aggressive if I get paralytic.
