I learned a valuable lesson tonight. I underestimated just how strong I really am. I am an alcoholic, I have been sober since 3/23/09. I quit cold turkey. I was also recently diagnosed bp. I have family and friends who are still drinking but most of them are very supportive of my battle for sobriety. It's challenging sometimes when they drink in front of me. I've held a bloody Mary in my hands and tossed it in the garbage. Tonight a family member brought vodka and whiskey in my house. I didn't drink. I had no desire to. I realized that I was not more fun when I was drinking! It's sad for me to watch alcohol affect people I love! I hope they get help, but I know I can't force them to get sober. I just keep praying for them. I thank God every day. I can't do this alone.

i can't get a doctor to diagnose me with bipolar. I know I am. They all say I'm just depressed but I know I am bipolar. I'm so tired of living with this way. I know what's wrong with me is more than depression. I need a mood stabilizer. I know I do :/ Any ideas ?
