  • Hello Everyone!Is anyone engaging in any creative type projects for the summer?I bought some clay and purple paint over the week-end, in order to work on some new pieces. This year, I created a bright turquoise-painted bowl as well as a watercolour painting with multi-colour hearts, and a vase/flowers project with some inexpensive blue glass beads, glass containers, and some fake flowers.
  • Ok so after several emails and I'll admit some not so nice words I got access to my account. I bitched a lot. So below is the email that I finall got that gave proper instructions. So my suggestion is persistence and asking for the website. So I kept getting emails from DS saying that your password has been reset and it never was reset. They kept going back and forth with me. They said...

    Hi all,Was wandering around for support forums and found myself here. Seems to have a really genuine community.Recent BP diagnoses, thought to be anxiety/depression for the last 15 years or so. Had to take steps to leave an emotionally rough relationship over the last few months also. Have kids. Accepting the BP diagnosis and fundamental change in lifestyle are having a pretty big impact on me at...

    after my blip last week(trying to swallow a bottle of pills) dr has me down to working only 16 hrs a week. I'm also starting outpatient again tomorrow and that will be six hours a day five days a week. So I'm not able to work as much as I need to in order to pay my bills.

    Feeling kinda down..

    Well more than "kinda". I tried not to post too much about minor things. I went to see my Pdoc yesterday. He suggested we swtich up my meds entirely. I am taking Prozac and Geodon (sp) now. I have not gotten the first meds from the pharmacy yet. We will see. My depression is linked to my job situation, and also everyone around me getting older. I am 44 years old, never married, never a home...

    Too tired & too late

    I think its only just hitting me now how depressed I actually am. I am so dense. But none of it makes sense. I went to A&E and I was low, I saw the GP and I was hypomanic, for about a week or so I only needed 3 hours sleep, now I am so tired and can sleep for Britain. In a short space of time I spent so much money its ridiculous. Now I don't want to leave the flat. I have never rapid cycled...

That scared the crap out of me. Wow, who am I now? How do I act? I couldn't ask her what made her think that because my husband told me when we got home.Do you all think you are different and recognize...
