Hi I'm new to this whole thing..... I've been seeing a therapist for about 8 years.... I struggle with bipolar disorder and depression. I have a hard time coping with said illnesses so I have also developed impulse control issues. I am 19 and a college student, I am doing well in school and I guess I should be proud. Everyone in my family seems to be proud, I have doubts about everything though. I help take care of my ill great grandmother and struggle with adjusting to the fact that she is as sick as she is. I need ways for coping please. I currently write, read, meditate, and listen to music.
