Hello Billie!

I’m also bipolar...try not to focus on your label of being bipolar, but on how you’re feeling right now and how to improve things. There are many, many bipolars out there, they just don’t talk about it much out in the real world. We can speak freely about it here because we’re with like-minded individuals. I only mention it to another if they have just stated that they were bipolar. Instead, try to focus on how you’re feeling and what to do about it rather than your label. It’s ok! Most of us are quite sane the majority of the time! I think you’re in pretty good company! Focus on the solution instead of the problem, my friend!

Nope - not asleep! We are people from all over the world on this site so we have many different bed times. And I'm not always signed on so I might not see posts right away.

Also, if you are looking to make friends, check out others' posts as well. You can comment on them. You could even make a new post asking to be friends with others! Let people know what you're looking for.

We all join this site for various reasons. I joined to receive support and to offer it where I can. But I prefer not to answer some questions I'm asked. It's nothing against anyone - it's nothing against you. It's just a personal preference. Best wishes.

Hi Billie6307. That's awesome. Have a geat trip! My niece's 3rd birthday is the 27th. I'm headed on a trip to see her and my brother soon.

Nope - US.

I was in London when I was about 17 though!

I was diagnosed with bipolar then later changed to cyclothymia (milder form of bipolar). You are not alone. Well wishes to you! 🌳

Hi Billie, if you have been "fighting" this for a while now, it is easy to understand why you are despairing from another night of struggle. I hope the Monday travels and time with your daughter will give you a respite from the struggling! Do you usually enjoy time with your daughter?

Just thought I would check back to see how you are doing today?
