I have been really depressed for a while and feeling alot of different emotions. I came across bipolar disorder and read the symptoms. I was realls shocked as reading it basically explained me and exactly how I am feeling. I was quite happy to know a reason why I have been like this so I can help it until I went to my gp this morning. i mentioned bipolar and he dismissed it without asking questions. I really cant ignore this incase its true and I cant treat it. what can I do ??

I have a very specific situation... I have been diagnosed recently with BI POLAR disorder... The thing is I have been a habitual meth user for about 8 years now... I am now 25 years old and have seen both the bad and good about meth use... I have managed to self-medicate myself which I have found very successful in helping me to concentrate on things that naturally I am unable to... I have found that when I do not have my weekly dosage I have extreme lethargic symptoms... I have created amazing pieces of literature and art while under the influence of meth and want a professional opinion on the subject matter... I found out that a legal form of meth is used to treat ADHD and it got me wondering if maybe I have a case of ADHD... The thing is the street drug has become a big damper on my finances that if I can get it legally with a prescription than I d rather do that... I believe my body reacts well to amphetamines and know for a fact that all my creativity and studious work was only accomplished because of the influence meth has had on my career... How does one ask their doctor to get prescribed meth for ADHD without some type of stigma to the situation? HELP! Optional Information: Gender: Male Age: 25 Already Tried: I take one to two doses of meth a week...
