I have been affected by bipolar depression for as long as I can remember. My earliest childhood remembrances are tainted with the ominous presence of my depression inspite growing up in a very caring home with two kinds and caring parents. After a divorce in my late thirties, I found me personally unable to cope with the feelings of feeling down that had permeated my existence and often left me personally unable to get out of bed.
Of course, these feelings got intensified as a result of my divorce, but even well before I knew that something wasn’t quite right. I went to see a psychologist and my doctor, both of whom asked me when my symptoms began. I explained that I was fairly certain they started the day I was born, which both informed me was completely possible.
Since that time, I actually have tried different kinds of medications. From SSRI’s to MAO inhibitors, I have tried so many treatments that I sometimes sensed like a guinea mouse. I finally discovered a medication that worked for me and produced very few noted side effects. I am now experiencing good life more than I ever have and can honestly say that I actually feel like I never thought I would or even could.
Enjoying life now is some how bittersweet as I look back again over all the past years that I spent in manic depression without even understanding that it was not normal. I knew something was not the same simply from viewing the behavior of other people and comparing it to myself, but I always considered it to be my personality or “just the way I am”. I want to advice others who experience expanded bouts of feeling down to get more guidelines on bipolar depression. There are several resources found on the web, and even your primary care physician could be of great assistance in supporting you to determine if you suffer from depression. He or she could suggest that you talk to a specialist.
Had I known that my issue was correctable, I would have spent lots of years enjoying my life rather than wondering why all others was enjoying theirs. Depression is manageable, and you can also enjoy a happy, productive life.
