Hi, I used to be on Bipolar Connect and awhile back the site was shut down. I just got through a major depressive episode. I am feeling much bettter. I feel so blessed when I feel well. I was on this site many years ago and do come on from time to time. I enjoy the discussions and hope I can find support here and support others.
Most of the people in my life do not support me. I do not get manic episodes very often. I think I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I seee a Psychiatrist and used to see a Therapist regularly but now having inxurance issues. I have a nice husband who understands my illness beter since he lived with me for so long. I have two lovely young adult daughters. Anyway, I am hoping to connect with some people again on here. I recognize some names from years ago. Happy Holidays All!

    Hi solitude, I'm new to this site and am also looking for support. I'm sorry to hear you just had a major depressive episode and are having insurance issues. I must say though that I'm a tad envious that your husband understands your illness - I guess that comes with time, right? - my husband is patient, but can't even begin to understand what I'm going through and often times makes it worse. I just started on my journey to feeling like "me" again or better yet, acknowledging that I'm not okay and seeking help and support.

Sounds like you have a supportive of family, I remember your posts about your family from Bipolar Connect. So important to have a supportive family. I am sad to hear about the insurance issues, you are not alone there. I hope you will stay in touch and keep the connection going. And Happy Holidays to you!
