Hi, Im new. My name is Carrie, Im 26 yrs old, married, mother of 2 kids, 2 dogs, and a cat, and just like the rest of you Im bipolar. I have only been diagnosed for about a year now, but Ive always known that I wasnt like the rest of them. (I call normal people "Them".) Ive tried almost every anti-depressant and most of the bipolar meds. I just couldnt stand the side affects of the stronger ones and they made me feel like a zombie so I decided to go off it all. Its been 3 months since I stopped and as you all know, without meds you have "episodes", as my family so lovingly calls them. Sometimes their good, sometimes they are really really bad. I myself have spent many an episode freaking out about the fact that no matter how hard I try I cant BE normal. It was only recently that I realized that whether I take meds or dont take meds I can never be normal. No one with bipolar can. We will always be struggling with something and I for one am sick and tired of doing it alone. My family pampers me like a baby and my husband just tries to pretend the bad days never happen. So, I sat down at the computer, which I never do, and zip zip Im here. Ive read some and it kinda feels good knowing that maybe there is someone out there who understands. Its hard to do much these days so I hope to sit down again and read some more and maybe write some more. So anyways Hi.
