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!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
