I just want to say that I'm so grateful over the advice that's been given. It feels like I've started to process the trauma, it doesn't feel like a helpless situation anymore. I have a doctors appointment soon, and I'm going to ask for therapy. The worst thing about Bipolar Disorder though, is that people keep being annoyed or worried about your behavior, and it just seems to exacerbate the symptoms because of stress. But beyond that, all I'm really wondering about is that it feels sometimes as if I have to do something or something bad will happen. Almost like a flashback. I feel a lot better thanks to all of you.

Well, if it helps....... :)

What you have to do, though, is get and maintain treatment.  This is extremely important and cannot be stressed enough.  I know you have trust issues, but the truth is that you are going to have learn , somehow, to trust these people with your care.  Trust doesn't have to be immediate, but you have to give it time and work at it.  And talk to them about it.

All we can do, here is encourage you.  For a number of reasons, there is nothing we, here, can to to actually help you in the same way a clinician will.
