Shifting between feeling awesome/secure/happy to feeling like I'm losing my mind.
I don't know WHAT it is. I've been substantially making progress and coming to terms with many past issues etc over the last few months. I was starting to think, this might just be the turning point of my life! I thought I'm finally starting to walk on The Path.
I left a relationship that was no longer serving me, I quit smoking and drinking alcohol, I'm working to change my diet, I've done significant amount of progress in my high magick studies, academically also, things were starting to look up, my relationship with my parents has never been better and I was truly happy. So happy that I wanted to share it with the whole world, and I was so grateful that I got my act together and never gave up. I would've missed all of the fun that I was having.
But today, for no apparent reason all of my energy seemed like it was sapped out. It started with irrational feelings of anxiety, then some bouts of sadness, then I just wanted to sit and watch tv, but that made me restless too. So I thought I'll lie down. But no matter what I did, I felt like something wasn't right.
Then came hours of introspective thoughts about how futile life seems, how there is no hope for me, suicidal thoughts started creeping in again. And I hit rock bottom.
What I don't get is that, I thought this phase was OVER. I thought I figured what I had to do and working towards it was going to be enough. I thought I did a lot of 'psychoanalyzing' and soul searching enough for 20 lifetimes. None of these emotions feel like are in my control. I feel awful currently.
And I DID see a doctor half a year back, he diagnosed me as bipolar and although I was and still am skeptical about it(He asked me some routine questions, and concluded I'm bipolar because my Mom is too) I'm still taking the meds(Not very promptly though).
So yeah,I'd like just a little help in trying to figure out what I'm supposed to make of this whole situation. Right now I feel so low that I don't have the remotest hope I can pick myself up again.(My rational mind says that, that's not true, there always IS hope. But these emotions are so overwhelming that I can't reason and get out of it) These falls are getting too hard on me. I work so hard and come so far and BANG! I'm back to downer town again.

Although I have to mention, for the past couple of days I've been worried a lot about these two guys who are stalking me. At first I thought they were just a couple of harmless creeps. But they are everywhere I am and they fearlessly follow me at every turn. This is putting quiet a bit of stress on me. I hope they aren't some dangerous guys obsessing over me.
And also today I kinda got 'bullied' in college by a bunch of guys I don't really know.(I rejected one of them years back in a very rude way) They are the kind of guys everybody stay away from. And it was kinda humiliating to be bullied by them in front of many people I know. I'm usually not affected but this incident got to me. Everyone could make out how I felt and those guys seemed pleased about it.
Another thing I can't figure out is why I've been attracting such situations all of a sudden, just when i thought I'm starting to get a grip on my life. This is the first time I'm encountering stalkers and rogue bullies. Is it because of fear of success or something? I currently don't have the mental clarity to analyze this.
I just wanna watch reruns of StarTrek for the next three hours, while I gorge on potato chips and ice cream(There better BE ice cream at home!! )
Anyway thanks for reading my part-vent part advice seeking thread.

Dear LC we all have such days and some spill over to the next day.... and the next.... It is almost Spring so many people feel down. You have a lot on your mind and what you are experiencing is just "residue" of what you have been through.
Can you report these stalking guys to someone? Campus police or the "regular" police?
I hope you feel well soon!

I understood everything you wrote.
Don't feel bad when you use those days to distract yourself with stupid things. Get with friends if you feel alone.
I've crappy days too, what helps is love.
Share your conflict with the bullys with as many people as possible you know.
You can have a virtual hug from me

My first thought was "wow"! I am never able to articulate my thoughts so well when I am down. Nor to understand my feelings. I am also very impressed by your commitment to change
My body goes into a "Gimme a break" mood sometimes. If it's just a couple of days, I go completely go into this mood and live it to the fullest. Allow yourself to have days like this and find a way to find meaning in everything

But on the low days I think these things affect me more. Glad I identified it.
And thanks, for the comment about me being articulate and committed I've only recently gotten better at expressing myself. Thanks to the forums (And Criseyde)
