Hello, I am new here, I just recently got diagnosed with BP1 and I am really frustrated with it. I have started taking Depakote, Seroquel, and Risperdrol and I have gained like 20 pounds already! Just before I was diagnosed I withdrew from the prestigious and difficult school I went to because of the troubles with school I was having due to the BP I didn't know I had. Now I am trying to decide whether or not to go back to the school I left. I work really hard to get into this school and worked just as manicly hard to do well there until I went into my depressive slump. Now my parents - and me- are worried about how healthy the high stress atmosphere at this school would be for me, but I feel like transferring would be like giving up to the Bipolar and letting it win. I know that the going to an easier school with a more flexible schedule would probably be the best thing for me, but how do I deal with loosing something so wrapped up in who I defined myself to be? Or if I return to the challenging school will I just be asking for my BP to get worse?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
