I suffer from bipolar disorder and depression. Lately, I have been suffering from anxiety attacks so much that it has been affecting my ability to attend school. I have tried several times to reach out for help and I cannot get support from family. I do not have any friends to talk to nor am I in a relationship. I pretty much lead a lonely life. I'm already on medications for my conditions and they don't seem to work anymore. I am not sure what to do now.

Hi Xenobia!

You said you are in school, is that college or High School?   Either way there should be a counselor on staff that could help you.  Most universities offer free counseling.  It is at least someone you could talk to. 

Do you have friends at school that you could confide in? 

Also, you may want to get your meds checked and see if an increase is needed or a maybe even a change.
