I agree with KK, I was wondering about this too. There are crashes but also highs that sound a bit manic too me. You posted about being so full of energy and doing lots of things. You also made impulsive choices like quitting smoking. Then there is the issue of you saying Ven is helping and then the complete opposite, missing meds and then just dropping them.

I think you need to talk to them about these behaviours. They need to be doing more and given the history of self harm the above is very important to assess as it all feels connected to me.
