I'm new to this forum stuff, can I get some imput on how to get involved, I came here looking for some support but don't know quite how to get started. I'm not new to Bipolar, I have been suffering with it for a long time, without support. I want to get involved with others with Bipolar. I feel I can encourage others and I diffenetly need encouragement myself. It doesn't matter how many years you've been through it, when your in the midst of a down spiral, it might as well have been the first time. This is where I get stuck at, because I still want to kick and scream. and if that is not understood here then I may I'm barking up the wrong tree, others have looked down on the length of time I've been Bipolar, and feel I should be beyond the kicking & screaming stage. just because I'm 50 doesn't mean I don't have the same feelings & responses I did when I was in my 20's, because to me my Bipolar hasn't changed a bit. Bipolar is Bipolar at any age

I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
Ok, I know its been AGES since I have been on here... but WOW! What happened ?!?! LOL! Are some of the older people still on this site or what? :)
