Bi-polar is no excuse for not taking responsibility and for blaming others...that is not bi-polar, that is a character defect.
Having extreme mood swings does not excuse being reactive and blaming others for our moods...if you feel bad, it is due to your own bad behaviour. accept that and move on!
I was also promiscuous as a young woman, but I did it. What I got was my own fault (herpes).
Thankfully I did not get anything else.

Likewise I have had extreme depression and was suicidal, but no one MADE me that way...don't blame and manipulate others for your own moods.
Get the help you need and deal with whatever you have been so angry and self-destructive about. It not only affects you but everyone around you too. No one deserves this.
I speak totally from experience and did get the help I needed. I am now no longer on that depression-anger cycle that created the chemical imbalance in the brain in the first place.
It does help to take plenty of B vitamins and eat right, avoid alcohol and caffeine.
So, you feel guilty for what you did, it is good to admit it, but others cannot absolve you of it. You can ask God to forgive you and forgive yourself, but that is for you to do.
So, forgive yourself first and then you will do much better.
