    Hello again. You said you it was obvious you were bipolar, but had never been diagnosed. You also mentioned that you had been on meds at one time. What meds were you on and what did your doctor diagnose you with at that time? I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder in July, 2015 and my psych got me on the right meds that work great for me. I am happy and sleeping well. Were you ever referred to a psychiatrist? I am lucky to live in Canada where medical care is available to everyone whether they can afford it or not. My GP saw me for my depression in June, realized it was serious and treatment, and referred me to a psychiatrist right away. In July the psych hospitalized me until he found the meds that worked for me. I think you like be in England because you refer to yourself as "Scouse"loonball. I was married to a Brit and had a very close friend who was a Liverpudlian, not sure if I spelled that right.
