Hi,Im Elizabeth. Im am a Manic Depressant who also suffers from a BiPolar disorder,(but I don't get turned on by little boys lol!). Most of the time. my depression is undercontrolled through my faith. I am a full fledge Bible-Thumper and Born Again Christian. I find that it helps. I also find that it helps me to help others. It is a good distracion from thinking about the horrible things that have happened to me in my life. Im a single mom of 3 adult children who I raisd by myself. I like to help with support groups, especially Abused Women when I can. My depression has its highs and low, sometimes I dont even come out of my very dark room. I have a very dark felt cloth over my window. It helps. Listening to christian or gospel music seems to help too. My depression goes up and down. When I worked as a nurse, I didnt have time to think about things. I worked as a nurse for 25 years. Now Im retired and I receive SSI. I recently had to get a lawyer to fight because they were trying to take my ssi away from me. I recently underwent an Angioplasty. Im just trying to cope with life every day. I find that I have a tendency to take on other peoples pain because I can relate. I pray all the time it helps. I love beautiful things such as music and flowers and things like that. Well, I look forward to meeting everyone soon. God Bless, Elizabeth.

What would YOU do if you won the lottery? If I won I would find a program or place that treats the WHOLE body, not just with chemicals or talk therapy, to find a mental health regimen that would FINALLY work for me. I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
