Hi, I have been diagnosed bi-polar for 28 years (I am now 61 years old).  This has been a very rough disease for me to handle because I am a rapid cycler, lots a mixed states and a couple major psychotic breaks.  I have been on every med imaginable.  Currently I am on 900mg lithium. 4 mg klonopin, 200mg lamictal and 500mg seroquel....this seems to be a fairly good comination for me, but I still have a lot of depression.  A year ago my husband lost his job and I was brutually attacked by a horse.  Those 2 events seemed to throw me into a 10 month depresssion.  Doing OK now.  I work when I can as a marriage counselor, I have two adult sons and have been married 41 years.   Anyway, I am looking forward to this forum.  I am always ready to learn something new, share experiences and offer support where I can.

happy bill
