I have been going to a support group since I move here to AZ in 2007, but over the last 9 to 11 months I've noticed that the conversations in the group have been inappropriate to me, I believe the woman who runs the group is losing interest in it.  So I contacted the Bipolarbears here in Phoenix AZ and e-mailed them to try out their group.  My question is to you all has anyone heard anything about them,  I have only heard they are nice there.  Please give me some feed back if anyone has any on this group.  Thanks

I am bipolar and going through a seperation we still love each other and he said that we don't click and he never wanted to married in the first place. Mind you 5 years later he told me this. I ma freaking out then crying then all powerful hear me roar. This mania sucks an the doctors are doing wha tthey can right now. What a re the signs that you are suffering a breakdown? I have fibro and nerve damage and just found out I have stanosis., Woo hoo. I have had a physical breakdown but never a mental one. Help. LOL

I wish that I could talk to a therapist, but my insurance stinks and I also am not a fan of support groups, but I am desparate.

Hi maggiern,

I know nothing about the bipolarbears, I'm sorry. I can't help you at all. But you should go with what you feel. If you don't think the group is working out for you, then try something different. You should know that there are therapists at clinics in most towns with sliding scales, so if insurance is an issue, you can probably still find something affordable.

Dementedpoet,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. We're glad you're here.

You are going through a major life event right now with huge emotional costs. It's no wonder your bipolar would be acting up right now. You need to get some help. Do you have a doctor or therapist you see? It's definitely time to check in and get some help.

No I do not because after what I hear other people talk about I think I have fallen through the cracks at thing Megellan mental health company.  I will work on doing something,  I have even went to three different support groups this week. But Monday I think I will push the insurance company to help me get some counseling help.  Thank you for the support.

Maggie,
I think it is a good idea to get one on one help. There are ususally some low cost or free mental health care within a large enough community.
