Hi, I have been diagnosed with BP 1 since past 6 months. I have had 3 major manic attacks in past but rest of the time i am fairly normal. I dont expereince any severe effects. But i do go into depressive states and have to keep fighting to stay normal. Luckily i have excellant support from family and friends. But the long duration of my depressive phase is beginning to strain my support members. They are worried as to why i am not able to do simple tasks - and even i sometimes feel it could be becuase of laziness or lack of motivation. My question is : What is the difference between genuine depression v/s just a routine dose of laziness/lethargy ? When does one kick myslef back to shape.. and when is it best to take meds and just sleep ?

My husband dropped a bomb last week and told me he is transgender. Being pretty liberal, I accepted it and went clothes shopping with him. He was very happy and I was glad he could finally find true happiness. Now my problem is how do I relate to him as a husband while seeing a woman sitting next to me. I can't find anything on the internet about relationships with transgenders. Or what to expect...
I have pretty much given up on this site. Hardly anyone posts or answers anything and the one person who does is just trying to sell herbal supplments to us.JHS
