  • Hi everyone , sadly i have no friends and my family is far and I'm going through a lot at once . Starting from getting into the divorce process , having diabetes out of control and recently having a hysterectomy ( kept the ovaries ) and dealing with the pain and metal emotions that go with that and honestly being bi polar I'm always unsure if my feelings are valid . Is it ok to feel sad ....
  • I'm trying to find out what a certain therapy is. I had it in one of the phosps I was in and it blew my mind! It was amazing!!What you do is you sit in a chair, across from an empty chair. YOU are the adult and the empty chair is you as a child. You talk to the child.Then you reverse it and you as the child talk to the adult. The stuff that comes out of your mouth is unbelievable. I didn't...

    Yesterday:My son's grandma who we live with is throwing us out. She got mad at me over nothing and we had a big fight. I'm pretty sure this has to do with her sleazy guy friend that spends the weekends here.It's a long story.Normally I would be completely panicked but I am tired of this. She gave us until the end of September so that gives a some time to find someplace to go.This has been a...

    Bipolar disorder stigma

    So there's a general stigma associated with mental illness in popular culture, and even moreso (I think) regarding schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I have bipolar disorder, and it runs in my family...Have you guys been hearing, in the media and/or in your personal and day-to-day dealings, people casually referring to other people or things as "bipolar"? Like the weather is hot and dry...

    Yesterday was um.. I dunno. I was having a decent day until I ran into one of my rapists at the gas station. I started to have a panic attack but a bunch of my family was there so I had to stay strong. He kept looking at me and smiling and it was killing me I am so close to relapsing it's not even funny. I'm freaking out and I hate living where he does. I just want to cut my whole body to...

    a new diagnosis

    i saw a new psychiatrist today, he's in charge of my area. he insists that i have borderline personality disorder not bp. doing a little research i acknowledge that there are cross over symptoms but i don't really agree with his diagnosis. what do you guys think? you know me better than anyone here.
  • Well, I went to my new doctor yesterday (the one that accepts medicaid). Acutally it was not too bad of an experience. Even though it was crowded, I was in the exam room in about 15 mins. I guess two other people did not show up. Anyway, I was a bit bummed out that I weighed more than I did on my scale at home. I weighed myself a few weeks ago. Odd. I have been really hitting the treadmill since...

    Yesterday I have a long eventful fun day and I knew I was going to pay for it today. Today I am paying for it. I feel like I am just going to break down and cry constantly over the smallest things. Like I went to Walmart to pick up a few things and I left and forgot milk so I had to go back. As I was standing in line I felt like I was just going to break down and cry right there. I have slept...
