Living With Bipolar Disorder

Last week mom found a support group via the internet that I joined (www.dbsalliance.com). Each week they have support groups person to person at my university. I think this coming week I am going to go. I also found online support where I can keep a mood journal and chart at https://www.facingus.org/

It hasn't been an easy road, but of course I expected that. I think mom is slowly coming to terms with it, but this past week has been bad with arguments and my mood swings.  I have been yelling and crying a lot; my therapist canceled on me last week because she got sick. I feel more relaxed now, I caught up on my sleep. With this I have to keep a sleep schedule because that helps with moods as well. I guess I'm still learning and can't really put it into words right now. From time to time, I will be giving updates.

I found this contest and I am going to use this as inspiration: http://www.speakaboutdepression.com/learn_winners.php

  2. ::hugs:: Thanks Andrew. Some days it's annoying. Next month I am going to Wisconsin for 4 days. Most of it is paid for, except food. Mom said I should cancel because of my condition and I am in dire financial straits. Right now I have $1200 in savings, get paid $300 this week, $200 the following week and so forth... am I in dire financial straits like mom says?
