Hi. I've suffered from anxiety most of my life and managed it fairly well. This march I experienced depression for the first time in my life. It's torture. Although it lifts now and again, I'm scarred to what it's done to me and how it's made me turn out.
I take venlafaxine 75mg for this although I think I need to increase to the next dose.
I am however thinking that I may be bipolar. I do suffer from some trates of bipolar although I'm actually unsure how to define these trates as bipolar trates or just a bit of what normal folk experience. I'm a 38 yr old guy. I have a girlfriend and no real worries but I get sexual urges. I look at prostitutes but never actually do anything about it. I masturbate nearly everyday and this seems to lift my mood and fix my sexual turn on. These are trates of bipolar but the other trates don't usually bother me. I have a short fuse. Not violent but lose my temper and get really stressed. I don't go on mad spending sprees but I have made a few financial errors in the past. Are these normal trates that have just gone wrong or should I be thinking I have bipolar?? No one in my family suffer from it.
I'd like to know how to define some bipolar trates as in the word excessive is used a lot. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
