Sorry buddy, but we have to deal with all of it. There's no other choice. I'm Bi-polar myself and its no fun. Get yourself to a psychiatrist (thats an MD) and get on some meds that will help even out your moods. Getting out of the cycle of mania-depression, will help you deal more effectively with your other issues. Meds used for bipolar disorder

And giving up the weekend benders won't hurt either.

Seems I've got to have a change of scene
Every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it could have been
Left here on my own or so it seems
I've got to leave before I start to scream
