There was an article in Sunday's New York Times by a bipolar woman about her exploits in the dating scene. Thought I'd pass along the link in case you didn't see it.

Bipolar II
It is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare

serafena,

Thank you for posting this.  It was an excellent read; I'll be looking for her memoir when it comes out.  I could so relate to the whole making plans when we feel good and then crash! --depression immediately causes us to cancel or suffocate through it.  And it's so true about being who we are; I can't hide who I am with my bf (nor would I want to).  But it's interesting b/c to the rest of the world, I do hide it. 

Really great article.

I was thinking of you when I posted it, Mogs! :-) I'm lucky enough to have gotten past my dating days somewhat unscathed. I wish the same for you. *Laughing*
