About Me: Female, 55, Westminster, CO, member since Nov 2004
Diagnosed bipolar at 40 but living with it all my life. Currently struggling for stability after ten years of changing meds. I don't do drugs, I don't drink. I take my meds as recommended. I'm exhausted and frustrated, feeling disheartened and sad.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ but failing at it. I'm a family person who is very loyal and takes responsibility seriously. I am generally very positive, sometimes to the point of being Pollyanna-ish. I bury my bad feelings and have lost the ability to connect with my emotions.
Recently had to resign from a part-time job (6 hours a week) due to the stress of the responsibility. It was one of the hardest things I've had to do. My health has to come first.
I'm fascinated with the computer, would love to be doing something in the field and enjoy spending time on the Internet, especially Facebook. My favorite website is the Hornby Eagles webcam.
I've been married 27 years, have one dog and one very cuddly pet rat named Dude. Our dog's name is Jackson. He's 1/2 Labrador and 1/2 Beagle. A curious mix, to say the least.
I'm a good friend when I can be, but I can pop in and out of my friends' lives in an instant due to my health problems, so being my friend can require a lot of patience!
