Hi, my name is Christine. And I am bipolar and i have good days and bad, lately bad. But i am trying to hang in there.

I read another post and I guess my post was too short. Well I am having a hard time lately, I just moved to this new town and I don't have a doctor here. I am on a waiting list and my other doctor is far away, I have to wait for my husband to take me there. Plus I have health problems that need attending too and I wish I could get a doctor nearby. Today was kinda bad, I just got my electric bill and it is half of my husband's salary for the month, awful. I felt so worried and stressed. I have a five year old daughter and she is at home with me and she is a bundle of energy and I am older and it is hard for me to keep up sometimes. I try my best but it is hard to say the least. I hardly get a break, and I don't have a babysitter or family or friends to help. Basically it falls on my shoulders 24/7. Anyways, I hope that coming here I can find some people that will understand what I go through. Hello to everyone and thanks for listening.

Welcome Christine...raising children is the hardest thing I
have ever done...hang in there. Glad you shared with us.
It sounds like things are a bit tough for you and a lot of stress.
Try to keep things simple...that's what I do when I'm overwhelmed.
Take care of yourself.
