Hello. Anyone been diagnosed with bipolar recently? I'm really struggling with depression again and even though I've increased my Prozac it's not working. My moods have always been up and down since the age of 8/9 when I was sexually abused. Now I'm sick of the yo yo cycle of feeling fantastic and then dropping to near suicidal. I want to go back to my doc's and ask for a referral with regards to a bipolar diagnosis. But where do I need to go? Will they take me seriously? Am I being melodramatic? I spent last weekend researching suicide and how to do it and I'm just so fed up with feeling like this.

Hi, I would tell your GP what you've said here and ask to be refered to a psychiatrist. In some areas you can refer yourself to mental health services, if you google mental health services in your local area you might get something come up with a central number you can use for self referal.
