Default Bipolar 2 please help

I was diagnosed as bipolar type 2 at 38 years old after getting out of the crazy hospital for a suicide attempt. Before the attempt I was a practicing alcoholic, and had been for 6 years. No one but my loved ones knew since I was a functional (for the most part) alcoholic. Meaning I made it to work, and did a decent job of hiding the fact that I drank every night to get sleep.


After the attempt and hospitilization I couldn’t leave my house except for a Dr. visit accompanied by my husband. I remained sober and complied with my doctor on meds for almost a year. I had a relapse, told them, and they changed my meds. After almost another year I began leaving my house, bought a horse, began getting out, struggled through every freaking day, and then started drinking again.



I told my husband, and then spiraled into another suicide attempt. I’m not sure how or why I survived this one. I drank enough to not be afraid of what would happen, and went into the garage at 2:30pm. I turned on my car and rolled the windows down. My husband got home at 5:45 and found me passed out. I should have been dead, but he pulled me inside and revived me to conciousness. So I’m here for a purpose. Maybe.




Long story, but after this attempt I told my doctor the meds were not helping and I wanted off. He discouraged me telling me I was not the first patient to ask this of him, but that the results would be disastrous. I stayed on meds. I’m taking Latuda, Buspar, and Wellbutrin. He recently wanted me to add ann SSRI for anxiety, but I declined.


I’ve been in AA and remaining sober, but unlike my fellow AA’s I am not feeling or doing better. I want to get off the meds. I am in a constant state of anxiety. I can’t ever turn the physical compulsion to jump out of my skin off. I’m either fully loaded or exhausted. I never feel like doing anything. Whether it’s a chore or an enjoyment it feels like an obligation.


I want to sleep the day away, but I can’t ever sleep. I wake up more than a dozen times a night. I counted. I’m allergic to the sleep meds they tried on me. I feel like I didn’t give my body a chance to heal itself from the alcohol onslaught before I started pumping meds into it. Both my GP and my mental health professional disagree. They both agree that getting off meds is a mistake, but I am still miserable. I can’t take this anymore.

Hi there, I'm sorry to hear of your suffering. Something that has worked wonders for me is using both BodyTalk healers plus Emotion Code work. WE see illness as a physical thing ie 'my brain is not working, I'm bi-polar'. But in actuality it's an energy thing. So much is healed when you remove the trauma and emotions stuck inside the body making everything go out of balance. You can even inherit these blockages from family members. But all these CAN be cleared via the before mentioned techniques. A good place to start is using the free video on youtube explaining the BodyTalk cortices technique to rebalance the brain. Also study up on the vagus nerve. You can get a free ebook online and start applying the Emotion Code right away to yourself. It cleared my PTSD. Hope this helps in some way xxx
