Sadly, it would not be surprising if an event like a miscarriage which can be disturbing psychologically and bioligically ( hormones etc ) might derail your wellness ; and having come off the meds for Bipolar Disorder, which are intended to reduce your vulnerability to such effects, would encourage the process further. As you know, street drugs are FAR more likely to worsen such problems. DO go and see the shrink who knows you for a re-assessment, and resume some anti-bipolar meds, and some treatment for the current depression. You deserve nothing less.
