First and foremost, I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulties with getting the types of services that you need.
However, please keep in mind that any substance that you put into your body will affect your body and this is especially true with medications for
bi-polar disorder, which may be the reason behind why you are receiving what appears to be a "refusal" for doctors to treat you. You already know
what types of side effects these drugs can have, and many of them are linked with abnormalities in babies born to mothers that are taking them.
Recently I had a friend who was pregnant who also suffers from bi-polar disorder. Her problems got so bad that she was put back on her meds. When her
daughter was born (because she didn't start taking them again until she was about as far along as you are) they were worried that in the short time
that her mother was on the medications that it damaged the child's kidneys. She was fortunate, but this is the reality of what these medications can
do to a developing child while in-utero. Please keep that in mind. The longer that you can "stay off the meds" the better it will be for your child
because damage can be quick and irreversible.
The fact that you are reaching out to strangers, and on a website known for conspiracy related subjects, is, as far as I can see, a really desperate
measure, and I hope that you will find the support that you need, or receive direction on other ways that you can make it through this very difficult
Personally, I will extend my hand and do what I can....private message me if you like.
There are many theories about bi-polar disorder, depression and post traumatic disorder and how they originate. From your description it may not be
that you have bi-polar disorder, as it is generally accepted that this disorder starts at a very young age. Seeing as you mentioned that it was
"brought on" by a bad relationship, you may actually have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and though related, how people overcome these
mental health problems differs, and pharmaceuticals are not always the right or effective methods of treatment.
More importantly they certainly are not the only ones.
Ever heard of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)? I've personally seen it be more effective in helping than pharmaceutics on a wide range of "mood
disorders". It is a relatively new psychotherapy, and maybe instead of trying to find a doctor that will prescribe drugs for you, you should be
looking for someone to direct you to this type of group, or some other form of therapy.
