New Here... Looking for insight.

I'm new here, and I guess I'm just looking for some insight.

A few years back, I was diagnosed with having "Manic Depressive Bi-Polar" after doing a 14 hr stay in a crisis center. My doctor put me on Depakote 500 mg 2x a day and Welbutrin 150 mg 1x a day. My husband and everyone said it worked wonders, but to myself I didn't feel any different so I took myself off. I haven't been taking meds in about 3 yrs, and I have two kids now. I find myself going on these anger binges very very frequently. I have a rage fit almost everyday, which usually ends with my crying and eventually falling asleep and I don't even realize what I'm doing. I feel as if the longer I don't take meds the worse its becoming. Usually my anger is directed at my husband, but lately I have been directing it at my kids. My marriage has been on the rocks lately because of all of this, and I don't know what to do... My dad and grand mom both suffer from this disorder. Do you really think this is what I have? or should I find a new Dr.? Nervous and confused...
