I thought this very important and want to clarify. On the old site we could send hugs and messages to people who were not on our friends list. By some distorted thinking this is not possible on this new site. This is nothing personal but before I accept friend requests I like to get to know someone a little bit. I am sure that is the same for a lot of us. I don't want new members sending out friend requests and for me to not be able to say can we get to know each other talking in hugs first? I also can't see what groups or friends we might share which is another consideration
I know this is crap if you are new. This is only me I am talking about (and I've probably scared all new people which is not my intent and everyone will hate me now!!!) Plenty of other members are not as wary as me. Its simply bcs I have been trolled before in the past and am managing my own safety. Getting to know people on posts seems the only way forward for me. Sorry for the narcissistic post. I want new members to feel very welcomed and I am not thinking that everyone will be clamouring to be my friend!!!!
There are some fantastic people on this site, although right now the site leaves a lot to be desired. Seek out the people whose posts/replies you like. We are a welcoming bunch and come from a very well established community. We are just finding our feet too
I am new to this group. Is this group for only people who have bipolar or can it be someone who is dating someone who is bipolar?
I cycle 2-4 times a month with my meds and 1-2 without. I've read that my cycling speed is fast and less common. I can cycle by the day if there is enough stress, but thankfully I rarely experience much stress as I live alone and am on disability. What about y'all?
