    I Am Bipolar Too

    I am bipolar too, need to be aware of my lower cycles to be in control of my emotions. However, I love my up swings they are ausome I can acomplish more in one week than most people can do in a year. I love the exitement and the soaring rush.

    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...

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

    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.
