Anyone suffering similar symptoms?

I have been ill on and off over the last 10 years, done CBT and group therapies. The private phyciatrist I see doesn't like labels and each time I am ill just gives medications which all have side effects and I have never found a mix I am comfortable taking for long.

Each time I am ill it follows a pattern though different phases last for different amounts of time. I always have a 'manic' phase which stops me sleeping and makes me over think everything. Then some time after I have a low.

At the moment this low is very bad and I have been unable to look after the kids for 6 months, I am tired all the time but can't sleep and have no confidence to do anything normal like getting a meal for everyone.

Has anyone else suffered similar and found anything which helps them?
