I am a confirmed Bi-Polar with a family of 3. I have been bi-polar all my life and it has prevented me from ever holding a job for more than a year, well at least to this point. What I am curious about is if anyone has had any success with marijuana treatment for this. I have been a casual user the vast majority of my life (I have really worthwhile parents if you dig it). I am not a drug addict and I am not a \"pot head\". Recently I had to leave the only job I could get, but it wasn\'t due to the bi-polar. I was a delivery driver and got mugged. I just couldn\'t go back. Since then I have been broke and in a steady downward emotional spiral. I refuse to buy an illegal substance with what little money I have. That would make me a bad person...I have babies that want to eat. Since I have not had my \"treatment\" my emotions have begun to bounce and I have lived with a constant golfball in my throat. I guess you could say that I also have a serious issue with meds. I simply refuse to take chemical drugs and pills are forever banned from my life. Chemicals and pills have a tendancy to lead to other things in my family. I live in a state that somewhat has a medical marijuana tolerance but I am terrified of asking a doctor for this and looking like a criminal instead of just being a closet one. So has anyone had any success with this treatment?

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
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...
