    It Gets Better

    I feel like I've made it out. It only took 7 years and two trips to mental hospital. Now the only thing is I'm afraid of relapsing. My meds are straight, I get my bible verses once a day, I've been able to stay employed, I'm painting woodworking learning to weld. I stopped...

    Logic And Reason

     My bipolarity is an intimate and integral part of my being. I have spent years working towards this mindset.  It was almost impossible sometimes, but now I have adopted logic and reason as weapons to use against my constantly swinging emotions and I have centered...

    It's the Price I Pay For Being Who I Am

    From an early age, i knew something was different about me.  I started mutilating myself when i was about 2 years old (from what i am told by the elders in my family).  I always had extreme mood swings and panic attacks, but never knew what was "wrong" with me. As i...

    I Love This

    I'm sorry to intrude, I'm not bipolar, but I LOVE this topic. I love how accepting all of you are with your "being-in-the world"!! Keep it up everyone, having a great life is in the end a matter of choice. A choice in our attitude towards life circumstances.

    It Is A Lot Of Work, But Worth It.

    I live without medication, because that is truly the best option for me.  My mania state is usually a euphoric hypomania, and my depressive states last no more than a month.  I spend much more of my life moving from one to the other than actually being manic or...

    I Have Learned So Much

    ...from most stories in this group.  originally when i started this group, i was in several bipolar groups - but most of them looked at BP with disdain.  i reached a point in which i was able to feel that BP is a Blessing, just one that is in disguise.  LOL. ...
