Hi everyone.I just wanted to stop in and say hello to everyone and let you all know that I think all of you are very special people. I know how hard it is sometimes to believe that of ourselves when life isn't going the way we wish that it could be. I just want to let you all know that I have been "LIVING" with bipolar for many many years, and it is not a death sentence, even though sometimes at our lowest moments (yes, we all have those moments) we wish that life would stop. Even though we did not have a choice in obtaining this wonderful illness, we do have choices on how we let it affect our lives. We can die with it or we can live with it. (yes, we will still have it when we die, it doesn't go away) It is important to do positive things while living with it, and that means taking your meds, being honest about your feelings with your doctors and those who care about you, educating yourself about the disease and looking at how it has affected your life, learning your triggers and how to avoid them and relive yourself of the stress brought on by them, but I think one of the greatest things that has worked for me is learning to love myself and accepting myself for who I am with the illness I have. I just want all of you to know that you are all beautiful people and that you did nothing wrong to be given this illness and that you are not any less of a person than anybody else for having it. Believe in yourself, love yourself, and others will love you too. I do!!!
