I will feel very welcome here. Thank you.
Olivia, It is very difficult without my family here. I do have friends here but they don't really know what I am going through. So I think that I will like ithere.
Ne Ne, perhaps you and I can learn together. I have done a lot of research but of course there is still a lot that I don't know. And I will definately stick around.
Sukay, I think I like it here already. My kids are 19, 15, 14, 12, 10, 7 and 1 1/2. My oldest knows but only because she overheard me talking to my mom and telling her about it, and she is trying her best to be supportive. I would like to tell my older kids but I am not sure how yet. I would also like dh to come with me to my next appointment but with his job, it is hard for him to take the time off. I was actually happy that I got a diagnosis. not happy about having bipolar but that I now know what is wrong. Thanks for the welcome.
Warren, My mom would be sarcastic and ask my daughter if she thought that she invented dirt, LOL. I am in Qatar and apparently the psychiatrist that I have is one of the best here and I can get my meds pretty easy. It can get lonely without my family here. but I have friends here and my husband and my kids. I call my mom as often as I can. But I am glad that I found this board.
Thanks again for the warm welcome.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!
