Hello all, I am new here.  I don't know where to start so I'll give a little insite to me.
 
I'm a mom.  I have 4 kids and I'm raising them on my own.  i didn't know I was bipolar until I took all of my kids and got on a plane and flew 2500 miles away from home, lost my mind, was put in a mental hospital and then flown back home.  Thank God I was able to keep my kids.
I was also a self medicating bipolar.  At first the pain pills made me feel normal and then they helped in trying to destroy my life.  I eventually got straightened up from those and my therapist put me on 4 different meds for bipolar and 2 anti-anxiety meds.  xanax and klonipine.  Well, being the self medicating fool that I am, it wasn't long before I was also hooked on those as well.  I became the typical addict, breaking the law and got in trouble and straightened myself up again. 
Here I am today, unmedicated again because I moved to another county and cannot afford a regular therapist.  The one the county wants me to go to says I make to much money to go there but I don't make enough to get another one.  It's frustrating and complicated. 
Anyway, right now I am really really depressed.  During a manic episode, I packed up my house that I had worked so hard to redecorate, loaded up a u-haul and moved to this other county which is only 75 miles from my home town, but still, it's a move.  Now, I want to come back and that causes a lot of anxiety as well because finding a new place is a real pain in the butt.  Plus, I can do things really fast when I'm manic, but not so much when I'm depressed.
I also suffer from OCD and panic disorder.  I guess I just need people who really understand me to talk to.
 
Sorry for babbling.
