Unsure if I am bipolar, I have depression which can last days, weeks or sometimes a few months during the winter. But I still suffer with it during the summer. I'm 60 years of age, for as long as I can remember I've always had this depression, I coped with it in my younger years it was not as severe as it is now, it has worsened rapidly particularly during and after menopause. I feel so desperately sorry for my husband I just don't know how he copes with me. I feel I'm wasting my life, well what I've got left of it. My mind feels sad I want to cry often and sleep a lot. It's like a switch that just turns itself on plunging me into hopelessness. I really am useless barely managing a few household chores each day. Keep asking myself what is wrong with me, I seem to have lost myself. 😩
