Hi everyone! I thought I'd introduce myself! My name is Shirley and I'm 20. I've been diagnosed with Bipolar 1 for a little over a year now, since November of 2007. I'm currently taking Klonopin for anxiety and Celexa. I was prescribed Buspar, but I haven't started taking that yet. I'm currently unemployed, so I don't have a way to refill my meds when I need them, but I have a few more weeks to worry about them. I'm in a really good place right now, which is something I haven't been able to say since before I was diagnosed. I hope it can stay that way!
