I checked your post and i saw that you aren't on any mood stabilizer and anti-psychotic, you should get treatment for your Bipolar first, then you should focus on others. BP can make your other disorders' situation worse.
thanks, ive been on mood stabilizers not my thing

Re: stopping all medication

That's a lot of meds to quit cold turkey. Even one of those meds might cause trouble if stopped abruptly. Hoping all goes well.

Good to hear. I found it more of a struggle as the years have passed. Its been 5 years now. Biggest struggle was / is trying to learn a new job. I guess it's not a new job anymore coz I've been there for over 2 years. But I'm still not as good at is as I want to be.
