Why do I suffer from this and why can't I stay happy for periods longer than a few weeks. It just started today and I am going to try and fight it. Being BiPolar is not fun and no I just can't get over it. It is one of the worst things that has ever happened to me. I really hope that I am not heading down, I've felt pretty good the last few weeks and have been happy with my feelings. Maybe the "BlackDog" is here for awhile.
