I'm sure LFW will be very excited to see that you responded to her post! I was very happy to see and read it. It's so nice to hear that you have been around and still with us! I thought we had lost you and I too was curious how you were doing.
I'm so glad that you found a therapist that you are able to really connect to. I have one like that. I have been seeing her for about 7 years now. If it weren't for my therapist helping/leading me to make physically & mentally healthy decisions in my life I don't know how I would have made it through things without her. So I totally understand how wonderful that feels. That is why I am such a huge encourager for people to make an appointment with one as part of their wellness plan when dealing with bipolar for themselves or those that are in relationships with someone who has bipolar. Good for you.
I wish you would copy & paste some of the information that you have learned about bipolar for YOURSELF for those that are in relationships with people who have bipolar, so that they can hear what YOU have learned. We have so many new people on here as you have already noticed that need help in this very area. You don't know how much your one post today has continued to help others. Maybe you can retitle the new post so that it could catch their eyes. Just a thought.
I am so glad that you are on a healthy journey for yourself!
Bipolar IIIt 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
