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.

Well, I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down.
