Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. It's terrible you're having such a hard time right now, but we've all been there, so just keep talking. We can talk you down. And just in case you really
need to talk and no one's responding here, here's a national hotline number: 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433).
Have you called your doctor yet? Mood swinging? Call the doc. Your meds have probably stopped being effective and you just need an adjustment. Are you on anything right now?
What do you do for joy in your life? You said you have kids, but what else makes you happy? I know depression takes the joy out of what brings us happiness, but sometimes it helps just to take stock and remember. What do you do for fun? I'm a knitter, and recently all I want to do is see the movie Twilight. I've seen it four times now. (I do understand that this damages my credibility. But hey, I'm depressed too.
) What brings you peace?
