Although I myself am not bipolar i know so much about the illness. I have spent the last 5 years of my life with the most amazing man. In Feb. of this year he started showing signs of one of his episodes coming on. he refused to get help so i took matters into my own hands and had him put in the hospital. He was then diagnosed again with bipolar. He had such a hard time dealing with that, and i got to searching on the net and letting him know how many people lead fantastic lives and have the disorder themselves. Well, long story short..after that i had him put in the hospital again because he wasnt wanting to stick to his meds, for reasons that were justifiable. He got on new meds and was doing great. Well on May 16th i got the phone call that i was so scared i would get...He had committed suiside. All my dreams for our future were ripped right out from under me and my world has fallen apart since that day. I did everything I could for him and he always told me i did a great job...so i am getting on here to hopefully touch someone elses life in the way that i touched his. I am here for any one of you out there that needs someone to vent to..anything! I hope that people will come to me and that Mine and Marty's story will touch your life and make a difference as you go on with this disorder. I want his life to shine through mine...and i want to help whoever i can for Marty and myself. Feel free to talk to me or email me..anything. My email is Foil621@yahoo.com. I'm here for all of you just like i was always there for my fiance Marty!!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
