I am bipolar too and unfortunately there is no cure for bipolar disorder. But as long as we take our medicine, we can live a normal life. Many manufacturers of drugs have assistance for people who do not have insurance and who have low incomes or no income. If you give Maso a list of your meds, he can provide you with the info.
When I lost my insurance, my psychiatrist gave me samples until I could make other arrangements. Not a permanent solution but helped in the meantime.
Keep in touch,

You have a diagnosis of Bipolar, dating back to 2004?
Have you had treatment since 2004? If not, why not? When did you get treatment?
Do you have all your Psy med records?
Why SSI? You have been a worker, no? How many years of work - rough, general type date ranges. Do you work now? Is that why you did not apply for SSDI - little work history?
And on the other hand, if your working, there is a limit to what you can be making each month, like 900.00, I think, for the ten months prior to your application. It is better to just not work, if ya can swing it
Have you filed an appeal of the denial of SSI? If not, do so ASAP - DO NOT LET DEADLINE PASS Inadvertant caps, sorry. But wait - do you have someone you are working with at the Social Security Office? I had a worker, oh those years ago, and she was somewhat helpful. She would help me a bit - if you have one and your Appeal deadline is off in the future, ask her why you didn't get an award. I am sorry - I was trying to keep this organized, and am failing miserably. I am sick.
ICheck out rules, income limits for Medicaid in your state. You can find this info on line. Medicaid is for low-income, disabled people. (in my state). God, I am doing this poorly. It is medical insurance.
I am giving up, I am probably just muddying the waters. But, one last Q - where are you?
