    I didn't know that there was anyone diagnosed with bipolar and pseudo tumor Cerebri. I've had both for quite a long time. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in my 20's and about that same time it when I started having pressure headaches. I didn't have a diagnosis of paeudotunor cerebri until 3 years ago; I lived with this pressure type pain for years before sealing help. I know people that live with bipolar disorder but I don't know anyone with ppeudotumor cerebri. I am currently taking 409 mg of lamictal, 50 mg of bupropion, and 750 mg of diamox. I believe I'm on a small dosage of diamox but I still have side effects from it. I'm always cold. I am interested in hearing about others like me. Those that i knew they existed because of statistics but never could actually ask questions to.

  • Does smoking marijuana intensify someone's possible bipolar mood swings?

    My name is Baylee and I've been smoking marijuana for 5 years (on and off) and I've recently realized that when I smoke it, all the highs that I have affect my mood drastically. When weed hits me, I go through really intense and short bursts of energy (usually lasting about a couple minutes) before my mood shifts and I feel less ecstatic but still very aware of my surroundings. When I feel like this, I get really energized and, from what I've been told, talk a lot faster than my normal relaxed state of speech. I am currently diagnosed with major depressive disorder, anorexia, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder and I've been told that I may be bipolar or have borderline personality disorder because of how intense I feel everything and how drastically my mood changes. After my period of energy passes when I'm high, I feel myself become done with the world within the next minute or less. I become sarcastic and have this 'i'm a bad ass who doesn't give a shit about death or dying' attitude. I've been told I either get really depressed with this feeling or have an overwhelming sense of anger which causes me to say how I hate the world and wish I would just find the courage to off myself while I was still on some sort of sarcastic rage. Of course, I don't necessarily mean all of that. The thing is, my mood fluctuates so rapidly that the people around me question if I'm okay all the time. I've never been diagnosed with a mood disorder in my 19 years of living but I don't understand why I get like that when I'm high. I mean I don't think I'm bipolar?

    I still have my vision, but have suffered severe bipolar depressions off and on for 30 years. I get suicidal. I'm very fearful of how I'm going to react when I do lose my central vision.
