I've been in "remission" of my illness for 15 months now and one thing I am grateful for is finding my sense of humor. I try my best to apply it when appropriate because staying in recovery is serious business. But I can't help making light of certain things to keep the strength and not surcumbing to my dual illness. What I don't get is why this seems to offend some of those who have been in recovery far longer that I. I can't relate to the doom and gloom of recovery ALL the time. I take this seriously...seriously I do...I just want to help and my way of helping is to bring a little sunshine in even when it's stormy and gray all around. I have emails sent to me saying not only am I not taking this seriously enough, but I am also teetering on the fence like humpty-dumpty and I am setting myself up for relapse. I just don't get it....am I stupid or what?!?! If "what"...tell me so I can understand, please!

Sorry, but I do not know the difference for this website. Who can view what? I would like to journal, but I do not know the audience that I would reach. Honestly, I am one screwed up cookie.
I just discharged from a mental health facility tonight. I saw a note that said bipolar depression on my paperwork. Now I have a name for what I’ve been experiencing. I hope this support group can help me discover ways to manage work life and motherhood
