    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 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 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...
