Reading some of the posts on this site has put my own problems into perspective. My bipolar is mostly under control but occasionally I'm desperate to contact someone who understands how a mood can suddenly drop and make one so miserable, dragging loved ones down too.
I'm no stranger to mood swings as I am 64 and was diagnosed at the age of 35 at the lowest point of my life.
But enough about me. Maybe my age and experience at coping with the depression and elation could enable me to lend an understanding ear to others In a similar predicament.
