hello I'm new here and I was dx with bipoler 2. My friend is getting married on July 11th with about 500-600 guests. I've known her since I was 13 and I'm 25 now. We don't talk much but we're still friends. For several months I've been having anxiety when I leave home besides work. I do get out when I have to but its still hard. I really don't want to go to this wedding. My anxiety goes up just thinking about it. I try to tell myself just man up and go but I just CAN'T! What should I do? Should I explain what's going on and tell her I can't come? It's hard for people to understand this disease as you all know. I feel terrible about it but I just can't get it together. Just to let you know I take lamictal 200, pristiq 50mg, clonazepam 0.5 mg 3x a day, and suboxone. Any advice please?
