Hi everyone....I have not been to the forum in a few months, but I am starting to realize the importance of the connections and comraderie I made here.  Something I have missed.  Things for me are going pretty good.  My meds seem to be doing their job, as of now I have not had any problems with mania since last December.  I do have my depressive days though, but not near as bad.  My husband seems to have finally accepted my bipolar and along the way has learned more about it.  But the one problem that just seems to not go away...and probably never will...is the feeling I have that people treat me different.   Mainly my husband and 15 year old daughter.  I guess I am getting tired of people talking to me in a condescending tone when we discuss money, the past, lying.  Or maybe it is just my own paranoia...LOL
Anyway, I hope to be more active and want to spend some time reading posts so I can get caught up on everyone.  I hope everyone is doing well!

Hi mommy.michele - I am new to this forum and so far have enjoyed the feedback I have received. My husband would not for the longest time except that I was truly BP, though he obviously knew something was not right with me. He has finally accepted it after seeing me go off meds, as I understand all BP's do once we think we are well, that was when he really accepted it. Now he reminds me to take meds and always knows when I have a Dr.'s appointment and exactly what I am taking and when I am suppose to take it. He is still uncomfortable talking about it. But I guess I can live with quiet acceptance than a verbal battle. I too experience times of paranoia. Thank goodness they pass quickly. I am a mostly MANIC person and usually only get depressed when I have worn myself out physically from too much overactivity from the mania. It does make me feel much better to know he is there for me. I wish he would read about the disorder, I think that would give him a better understanding but one step of progress at a time.

Nice talking to you and glad you are doing well!

Thank you serafena and BP Gemini for the welcome back!  BP...that spousal support is much needed when living with bipolar while married.  I too wish my husband would learn a bit more.  Sometimes I think the questions he ask, he would not if he had read up on the afflici=tion...but like you said, the quiet acceptance is better than an argument now and then!
