Your taking your rage as a sign of bipolar disorder. Many mental disorders feature anger bouts as part and parcel of the diiagnosis. ADHD, depression, Schizophrenia...All these braain cooties can feature anger outbursts/problems with anger and irritaability.

Lithium is often prescribed for aggression issues. This may be the only thing you're treating. The best way to determine if your bipolar is to go off any and all mood stabilizers and antipsychotics and see what happens. Racing thoughts (so fast they confuse you) is the first and best clue you are bipolar.

Lithium affects the kidneys, but not really in a permanent way. Lithium does not aaffect th eliver in any significant manner. Hypothyroidism is a manageable side effect of Lithium use and goes away once the druug is stopped. I have been on Lihthium for 10 years and my long term health has in no way been affected by Lithium.

This they can do. Too much Depakote left me perfectly flat.
