i have been diagnosed bipolar for 20 years, for the past 8 months i have been trapped in a deep unwavering painful depression, ive been through three medication changes, the last one put me in hospital, my current one is doing nothing at all.....im so tired....sick of waiting....the waiting lists to see specialists are long and the there's the long wait and the lottery that is waiting to see if a medication will have a positive effect......so much time, so hard to get through the days, the longer the wait the stronger the grip of the depression becomes, owing to sheer mental exhaustion......it is so difficult to cope and becoming more so as the days and weeks drag on.....the uncertainty and the waiting are torture.....honestly, endurance is something that has pulled me through in the past, this current depression is pushing that endurance to the limits.......bi polar depression time is as immeasurable as it is relentless and exhausting........so wrung out....god damn i wish something would move, even just an inch would be divine......

Like others have said on another thread, go to the emergency room. Don't let the depression drag along. You need to work the system in your advantage

thankyou for your response, but im not prepared to be hospitalised, having recently experienced this im not prepared to go through that experience again so i am not prepared to place myself in that environment, i am not a danger to myself or others, i am depleted and exhausted....i need a mental health plan with some consistency, finding this is difficult.....waiting times are excruciating, i need to vent my frustrations is all, sometimes it feels like we have very little control over how we are treated and when where and how, i am hanging in and will continue to do so....awful tired is all and frustrated.........thank you again for your response i i wish you well

I forget, did you say you had a therapist?
. . . all times I have enjoyed
Greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those
That loved me, and alone.
