Bipolar Disorder/Suicidal

Question
I am a 34 years old Indian man who went to study to UK for a period of 2 years. There i shared at house with 4 europeans and 1 indian. But i had an argument with this indian guy and he asked me not to talk with him anymore. We were living in the same house for more than 6 months without talking to each other. I developed a kind of hatred for him and started developing friendship with other european inmates. After 6 months suddenly he said he was sorry and we should be friends again. But i couldn't forgive him and kept ignoring him. I also noticed that some of my relatives living in Uk were also least interested in talking to me or asking me about my well-being. Same thing was true about my family back in india. I became very lonely and started feeling hatred for the indian community. So i found some solace in company of europeans but i started becoming distant from the indians, may it be abroad or in india. I have been carrying this bitterness till now after coming back to india and am not intereted in talking with any one. I committed suicide attempt when i was returning to india because i was worried about my future in india as i had moved away from my culture so much. Now i am not able to get along with people and culture here. So i keep getting suicidal thoughts as i can't hold on to a job or have good relationships. I have been diagonized with bipolar disorder and am receiving medication for the same.
Please advice.

Hi Prashant,
It is difficult to ascertain what exactly is going on. But I guess you may be suffering from depression. In that case I suggest you read:

Depression is a Nutritional Disorder
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/depression-a-nutritional-disorder/

No doubt apart from biological problems there may be social problems gong on, in which case I would study our self-help psychotherapy course which is explained at:

Self-Help Psychotherapy Course
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2012/self-help-website-for-personal-growth/#PSYCH

It is also available in my book:
Getting off the Hook
  http://www.google.com.au/books?vid=ISBN1862525919&id=cIbpj59s-KAC&pg=PR3&lpg=PR3
starting at page 36.

If the above does not seem to help you I suggest that you try to Skype with me. My Skype is jurplesman.

I am usually available between 2-5pm Australian time.
