Depression, Bipolar, and Schizophrenia

"I suffer from bipolar. My diagnosis was schizophrenic but I've also been experiencing depression which causes me to eat, not to want to do anything, not to want to get out of bed; I want to cover my head with the blanket and stay in darkness, and not even take a shower sometimes, not brush my hair, don't want to put makeup on. It's a chore to go visit my kids-everything's heavy. They've been trying to help me with the meds, but its an experiment to find one that works. And when the depression hits its just really heavy on your body, on your mind and on your heart. But finding support groups that can understand you are really uplifting and can help you lift that heaviness and that's where I'm at."
