First and foremost, sorry I usually on am at least 3 x a day. Due to school , and the stress I am not feeling well. I didn't feel like making it through today. I am sorry, and have not still read your other post, obviously you have one. I am sorry no one responded, however I can tell you lots of people read and not many respond. Maybe due to not knowing what to say or they are just quiet. I haven't really figured that out . If you feel like talking and I can stay and read your post I will. I hate for no one to respond , just for the reason you posted. I will read posts now and get caught up. Please just remember , we do care! take care, kitty

Corey-jon I can only speak for myself, but I am more than hapyy to speak to you hear any time. I am a very early riser and have the baord up most of the day. But I don't have a pager, and I admit I would feel uncomfortable speaking with someone I didn't know via pager anyway. As my close friends can attest, I don't even use my cell phone very much!!! I hope the very best for you.

Yes, the reason I didn't respond is that you made it clear that you wanted to talk via pager, which I dont' have anyway.  I got the feeling that you didn't want to post on the board like everybody else, if I got that wrong, I apologize.  We really are very nice and caring people, and we love it when someone new comes along.   I am sorry you're sick, maybe we can help.

I admit I actually did click on your message and fail to reply. I'm not particularly comp. savvy and don't have a pager. Never dealt with MSN or Yahoo either. Rest assured Corey, noone is ever going to laugh at you here. We all have our problems and noone is judged. This place is about support and acceptance. I hope you'll post again.

Corey,

I'm sorry that you felt that your first experience with this forum was not pleasant and that you see us as snobs for not replying. I hope that you will come to realize that this is a group of people who are all challenged by BP and who have our own reasons for choosing to post or not. I hope you will find that this forum is a family of caring and sensitive people who choose to find fellowship through HW. Like you, we are affected by what is written (or not written) here and work hard to be compasionate to one another. Many of us are timid to post if we do not know how to respond and I am like the others and don't use MSN, Yahoo or Pager.

Please know that this is a place where you can come to share and participate in the forum with a group of people who fight the same struggles. We do not laugh at, judge or criticize, but hope that you will find some comfort in being among friends who know what it is to battle BP.

thanks for all your answers:)  im sorry if i jumped.  it guess its just reactionary after so many disappointments and rude people.   i dont do social real well in person and sometimes not even online.  i have multiple issues that bleed into one another. i didnt come for pity or sympathy.  actually i can be a good listener because it puts my problems aside.  i suffter from bipolar1 and anthropophobia a fear of people.  my doc says that probably stemmed from ridicule as a child because i stutter. so im a wreck i guess but this doc is awesome because all our sessions are on pager and i dont have to speak.  i dont go out socially nor much in public.  we grocery shop at 3 am when stores are empty and i go to work and straight home.  it takes me months to get used to one person being too close and my co workers are great.  i have a bachelors degree in automotive and replace computers in cars for GM. i wasnt this bad years ago. it just got worse with bad relatives and hurtful people out here. i rebuilt my car and i drag race race her.  my best friend is doug. hes a gulf war 1 vet and my biggest supporter and protector.  maybe too much so.   my wife is ellen.  she is from notthingham england and she talks enough to make up for me. no kids. i love them but we lost 3 and she cant have anymore. so thats about it. i dont hide anything so ask away.

It is very nice to meet you Corey-jon. My name is Sandra. I am BP1, a rapid cycler with psychosis. I also don't do very well around people. I don't remember ever Not being BP. I remember episodes as a very small child. I, like a large number of BPs was abused as a child, but that seems to have given me the quickly dx'd PTSD. Oh well, lilke you, I still work full time, but am lucky enough to have a job that keeps me very close to home. I am an apartment complex manager and don't have to face people if it gets to bad for me. I am fortunate that I have a co-manager who will take over if need be.

I still don't know what pager is so if you could fill us in that would be fantastic.

Again it is great meeting you,

Sandra

Corey,

So glad to see that you posted and hope that you grow to feel more comfortable here. Its obvious that you've had many struggles in your life, and hopefully you can find some solace here with people who empathize with your situation. My heart goes out to you and your wife for your loss. I hope that you can come here to share some of the burdens of life and know that there are hearts all over the continent willing to listen.

Hi, corey-jon -

I'm glad you posted back, too, I thought we ran you off!!!   

My name is Shannon (shannon1, we have another Shannon2), both of us are nurses and BP, what are the odds????

Anyhoo, I'm BP 1 rapid cycler with psychosis also (tho I haven't had any psychotic episodes in a year and a half, phew)!   Im pretty much here all the time, except when life comes around and I have to do stupid things like responsibilities, lol.  eyes

I'm sorry you have such a hard time with people, I am that way, too, but not to the extent that you have it.  I hate going in public, I can't stand to be next to anybody in line, or at the movies (aisle seat a must!).  I have to move way far away from someone walking toward me, becuase I can't stand my personal space invaded by a stranger.  But I have found that pretty much all of us are like that.  Before I was medicated I was the life of the party all the time, but could be that way for a limited time only, and of course while drunk or other.....  Back  by popular demand only, lol!  Paranoia does run rampant with BPs, as does a lot of other weird stuff.  Oh, well, at least we're unique!

Besides drag racing, what else do you do for fun?  Are you artistic in any way?  I paint, draw, used to play piano before I sold it for a horse that I coudln't afford to keep but did anyway via cash advances on the credit card lol.  I used to show until about 5 years ago.

When did you get diagnosed BP?  Did you have symptoms as a child?

Well, I hope you get the idea now that we're not "NOT friendly", lol.   Welcome to HW!

i didnt go far as im on yahoo or msn.  both isps have pagers. you download and you type one on one where no can see. and i didnt mean to imply any of YOU would laugh at me. but cant anyone who discovers this boad read the messages??? arent they open to the public?? thats what i meant:(  drag racing and playing games on line is my thing. i love spades and scrabble and backgammon and music.  classical and 80s especially. my mom plays clasicall piano and my favorite composer is st. saens and mozart.  i was originally diagnosed with social anxiety. i refused treatment had a doc that just threw presciptions for paxil at me. i over and under medicated myself and drank while my wife and i were divorced.  thats a ANOTHER long story.  her parents orchestrated that fiasco. anyway after 8 suicide attempts and failures i broke down and was officially diag as bipolar 1 and suicidal. im was on seroquel and now depakote, wellbutrin, and imovane for sleep. i get night terrors.  louis is my german shep. hes a former narcotics dog whos hand signal trained.  my name on yahoo is blackgrprixgtx@yahoo.com or coreyhayslett@hotmail.com if you want to email or page me:)

Welcome Corey-Jon

I am Shannon 2. I am a fourth year nursing student diagnosed as BP1, rapid cycler last dec-what a shock that was. But I do well with my meds, thank goodness for them.

I'm sorry your initial visit here was a disappointing one, I am glad you stuck with us and shared your story! Bravo to you for hanging in there all these years, it is not an easy task. You are among people who understand, that's for sure. I am at a loss for words tonight, sorry. Again, thank you for sharing, and condolences for your many losses...

Hey, corey-j (Can I call you CJ for short?)

We have something in common - I love classical music as well, Vivaldi and any kind of chamber music are my favorites, and i LOVE 80'S!!!!   I always listened to new wave, the darker bands like Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, Cure, Smiths, etc.  If you have dishnetwork satellite, you can get a Sirius channel of all 80's early alternative rock.  That's what I listen to all day.  I know, stuck in the past, eyes but darn, it's good!

I also have two adorable Dobermans, they are also trained well - by me and do hand signals as well as voice.  They are my babies, but other people don't see them that way, devil lol!

Did you adopt your GSD from the police dept?  Was he retired?  Im just curious how you got a narcotics dog, that's interesting.  Dogs rule! yeah

Well, I tried to get canon in d on yahoo music engine, there was a list of about a thousand of them, but none available to play.   I hate that!   I have probably heard it, just don't know the name.  I am not a conniseur (sp) of classical, I just like it esp in the fall and winter.   The four seasons is my favorite of all. 

Well, I'm going to my pdoc for the second time this month; I want to stop the Trileptal, even tho it works.  If i'm going to stay on Abilify (dont even knwo if it will work for me yet, too early) all my meds are gonna kill me financially!  We'll see what she says, she's ALWAYS right, lol, makes me mad sometimes!

I hope you're doing well today CJ, take care! :-)

Hello again, I if you haven't read , am also Bipolar I. I rapid cycle like 10000 x a day. Well ot that much, had a scare the other day, but I am feeling better now. I am I think that's so cool, having a dog like that. My uncle is a retired police man, to whom showed me the dogs at the station. Wow, they are smarter than some humans I have met. LOL anyways, I am a surg. tech student who stresses alot. I like music from the motown era. It's my favorite. I don't paint , write or read to much ( besides school stuff which is enough), I shoot pool. I used to play in Vegas at open tournaments, till I had my child. Now there's no time to practice. It's a great way to relieve stress though. So are you a computer wizzo? I am horrible with computers, oh yeah math too. Too many formulas . ..... I also agree with you about people, I shop at the grocery store at night as well. However I started to notice my patience with the stock people in the aisles were starting to bother me. So now I try to avoid it all. I am glad to see you are still with us, and look forward to getting to know you. Kitty

So you goos in physics then. lol I hate my class, it's mechanical physics required, trying to figure why I need to know about cranes, car engine formula stuff, beams, bridges... hello I am in the medical field. My instructor said I will never use this, now the next part of the semester I get into heat light and sound physics ,that I understand relates. I think the college wanted more money.hehe Depakote huh... I took that but put on 20-30 lbs. I have also taken paxil.. that was a little weird. I take topamax 400 mg now, wigged the other day, and 300 wellbutrin. I lost soem of my weight from depakote by the topamax. I am not obese and my body mass index isn't high, however i would just like to lose around 10, maybe 15 lbs. Just so I feel better, I am also diabetic. My sugar is high then low, I really don't eat right. I used to make myself eat once a day, cause the topamax, made me have no appetite. I think it still has that effect , but lately I have been a little more depressed than normal. Anyways, I have to go now. Nice chatting with you. Understand too about the stutter deal, my dad's friend has that too... he used to get made fun of when he was younger. He is just quiet now, probably for that reason, real smart man too. I think he's in his 50's. I felt bad once cause he called for my dad and I couldn't understand him so I hung up the phone . I thought it was a prank call, so he called back and said why did your wife hang up one me, my dad said sorry it was my daughter. He explained the whole thing to him, he understood. I really did feel bad. In person he really isn't that bad, just sounded different on the phone.I am on here everyday, look forward to chatting again. Nickie
