I found DS yesterday and signed up then, but haven't had a chance to really properly introduce myself. So I thought I'd do it now. I'm Kambie. I'm 21, engaged to a man I've been with for 3 1/2 years and have 2 little children. I was diagnosed with general bipolar disorder this past May, but feel as if I've been dealing with it all my life. I am relieved to finally know there is something actually wrong with me and it has a name because so many times I have been diagnosed with depression when I knew that wasn't the full case at all. I have tried many meds for depression, none of which worked. I have been on Lamictal for BP, but that wasn't the right one for me either. I was on it for 2-3 weeks when I broke out with "the rash" associated with the meds so now I am in the process of meeting with my dr. and finding something else. I thought DS would be a great support network, as I could use such friends. I love my family and my fiance' but they/he doesn't fully understand the disorder and what I am going through. Feel free to message me anytime and please respond. I love talking to people/meeting new friends. Thnx for listening!!
