I'm borderline bipolar or have a mood disorder, the docs don't know which for sure ( not that there is much difference). I have it under control and lead a very happy life now!! In the past I've been on every SSRI antidepresant but my body can't handle them-I get worse.
[More] Now I'm back on my 1st mood elevator and it's working, finally. I was in bad shape when I found this board but now am 100% better. I have a 9 year old son and still have trouble with mornings and getting him ready for school. I moved in with my ex-husband in August 2008 because I was in bad shape with the bipolar. To my surprise we are putting out family back together again. He helps so much with my son, it has allowed me to focus on getting well and staying well. Fortunately we have a great relationship and don't let issues fester like before. I don't have family in AZ which makes it a bit more difficult because my family is so supportive! Support is important and I don't have a lot of it in person. These boards are great.Thank You!!
I am glad I found this great site for support and frienship. I am proud to say I am a new person since the day I first joined MedHelp. Finding the right medication is a challenge for most but if you don't give up eventually you will find what works for you. I never thought I would and now I'm ready to go back to work!! A year ago I could barely get showered and dressed somedays. Now I'm back in the gym full time and really enjoying my life. It makes me sad that I was a prisoner of a disease I never knew I had until 2 years ago. The good news is, ther is a cure!
Also a grateful recovering addict, 5 1/2 years and counting!! Yeah!! ♥ ♥ ♥
