Hello I am newly diagnosed with bi-polar. I have struggled for years with depression and was originally diagnosed with major depressive disorder. I am looking to learn more about bi-polar disorder. Can you give me any advice to make me understand my new diagnosis? Any helpful tips?

      I have been Bipolar most of my life, but I wasn't officially diagnosed with it until 2016; I was 45 years old. Before that, I self-medicated with Meth and Crack Cocaine. I've been clean for over 20 years, and I feel better that I was able to find what was the cause of my depression, anxiety, PTSD, and manic moods, especially when I would go off on people for no real reason.

      Get a support system you can be honest with. Teach them about bipolar disorder and how if effects you personally. And what you need on those moments. So when you need them they know what to do or at least what not to do
