    Looking for a friend

    1
    I'm in high school & im struggling with my bipolar. It runs in my dads side of the family but my dad just got out of prison and i don't connect with him at all. Neither of my parents really help when it comes to feeling better about it. None of my friends now understand anyways. I just want a friend close to my age who understands.

    Hi, my name is Amber. I'm 15 and new to this group. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was just a kid (somewhere aroud 6 I, think), and have recently been dealing with my family's stigma towards my illness. I relized that i've never have actually met someone with else with "it", and I would like to meet someone that I can relate to.

    Okey so lately i've been getting alot worse, and i keep fucking everything up! And when I'm thinking, I feel like it's not my thoughts, because the thoughts that i get are sometimes so horrible, I know that I'm not the one thinking. It's like someone else is inside my head, fucking with me. I keep thinking things that i know isn't true, and it's so exhausting to never get a break from all of...

    Hello, my name is Sarah. I'm about to turn 17. I've been diagnosed with bipolar and anxiety for a little over a year now. Lately I've been isolating a lot from the few friends I have. I always feel like I will care more about everyone than they will care about me and I feel greatly misunderstood. If anyone is willing to talk to me it'd be very nice to chat with someone who gets it. Also I adore...

    Not As Happy With Medication As Expected...

    1
    Repeatly since I was first taken to therapy, I'd been asking about medcation. It just seemed like there should be a chemical fix for what I understood to be a chemical problem. I'm now on Seroquel to treat my mood disorder, chronic anxiety, and insomnia. For the first few weeks, I was so happy, so relieved to finally feel "normal". No panic attacks, no overwhelming highs, no crushing lows. I...
