No worries. Notes go both ways and I myself have been experiencing "situational" depression. Bipolar depression isn't enough for me I guess. I was at the doc's this week myself. Changed my meds but it takes awhile for them to kick in. I wish you the best at your doc's today. Thinking of you ~ Sherry

It is hard to know that someone you've had contact with is in pain. I am here for you to lean on and I hope this helps lesson some of your pain. I understand your situation to a certain degree. I hate the phrase "I've walked in your shoes". I wear orthotics that fit no one else but me. LOL  Abuse from alcoholic parents, abuse from kids at work, alcohol in my own home, a 17 yr old who is "all that". Hang in there my friend.....Feel free to send me a message anytime...

Sorry to hear that you are frustrated. I hope it passes soon. I was frustrated a few days last week. I'm starting to come out of it. How are things in your neck of the woods? Take Care ~ El

Wow ~ I feel for you. I don't know why the people we work for do not protect us. In the US it is required to educate all people. The direction our education is heading in is not bringing on many new teachers. I don't know if it's always been this way but it is now. I'm so glad you found a place you feel safe in. Thank goodness they accomodated you in this respect. I can see where PTSD would come in to place working in a school. I want out of my job so badly but we need the money. So, I just go to work and hope I don't get hurt. I know it sounds crazy. Having BP does not help my job situation at all. I need a new job. Unfortunately, with the economy the way it is, it is not a good time to be looking. Thanks for accepting my "friend" invitation. :) Sherry

Hi ~ I just got done reading your response to your post. You are a HS teacher with kids that respect you. I work at the roughest school in our district. We have two full time police officers on duty everyday and six full time security guards. Our kids do not respect us at all. It is tough. I am so restful/peaceful this week. We had this past week off from school. Somedays I come home in tears either because a) they insulted me so horribly or b) their situations at school and home are so sad. I need to get into another school. Anyway, I'm just blabbing.....

You are very welcome. I hope something I said will help. I know having teenagers is not easy, let alone BP. Anytime you want to share, just look me up.....

Rapid Cycling, huh!!?  Depression then mania - I could use a little dose of mania right now!!  LOL  

Glad you are at least out of the down spiral!  (Man, Bulldozer's comment is so dead on - no one knows what it's like on the inside but us - no one.)

Hang in there!

We may not know each other in the "real world" but on here we do know what its like being on the inside of BP, I think that's what makes the difference. xx

So glad you're breathing easier, kid. These blue periods do pass although when you're in the middle of it you can't see out - I know.

  I'll tell you that this forum is my second home. I fought my diagnosis for years, comparing myself to my sister and mother (who are both probably BP1) and being 90% depressed and 10 % less depressed (so I thought). I am so much more educated since I've joined here. I've also developed better interpersonal skills. The mood tracker has been very helpful to myself and my doctor on how often and how hard I am cycling.
  The relief of finding people here with similar difficulties and issues (when I've felt like an alien from outerspace) is undescribable. If you get half what I have from BP forum on MedHelp you'll be a happy camper. Good luck!
