the prob is you need therapy and need to do some of the work yourself.  the meds are a tremendous help.  for me, anger was a huge issue!!!  it took a long time for me to get over it and i still don't think i am over it.  when i get angry i get very aggressive and destroy things.  it is hard to resist...esp with the voices being so strong.  anyway you depakote will help stop the nerves.  and lithium with  help with the swings it will slow them down.  the clonopin will also help with it it will relax you some.  so take the meds!!! they still help me.  i am on lamictal, seroquel, haldol, and abilify.  Frown today i hate being bipolar.
