How many of you have pets, and how have they helped you cope with bipolar? I find my cats keep me in the present and really calm me down. They're great therapists in their own way; I don't even have to talk, just be with them and I feel so much lighter and more comfortable. Often if I have bad dreams at night, I'll wake up to my cat lying on my pillow purring in my ear. It brings me peace. How have your pets brought you peace?

I don't know what is wrong with me! I am so sad and don't understand why. I don't remember much of this year and that is really frustrating to me. I know at one point I had friends but now I don't. I have no idea what happened with that but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm just meant to be alone. So so sad and so incredibly alone. I don't know what to do or even how to feel.
I'm more apprehensive than anything. I know what to expect with the procedure but I have no clue how I'll respond to it. I understand how it's done but everyone responds differently to everything so where I have collected all kinds of information on ECT I have been unable to predict how my body's chemistry will react. I'll keep you posted. Oh and I feel a lot better!
